Reflections on Genesis: Murder and Civilization

Well, tonight didn’t go quite so swimmingly. We had a non-quorum or something like that. Instead of 9 people there were only 3 (Thanksgiving, sickness, school conflicts, painting and other things came up tonight). A fourth showed up late for a recap. So far however, probably because the paucity of people led to less lively discussion that I don’t have anything really insightful to share afterwards. One thing came up. I had observed that the “line of Cain” was the progenitor of much artifice (herding cows (domestication?), smithing, and so on) while the line of Seth (which is the ancestry of Noah) had nothing to offer except that they walked with God. Holiness and our closeness to God is not related to our accomplishments and our reason.
