- Seems a bit off-the-wall, though it is admittedly creative. Liberals don't even know the Bible enough to realize what you mean. Maybe others have comments here about this.--Aschlafly 12:14, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
How could anyone confuse McCain, a decorated war hero and Presidential candidate, with Cain, a historical murderer? That sounds truly bizarre!
Aschlafly, I don't care what liberals think; this is a conservative blog and it should stay that way. All conservatives know who Cain and Abel were. --Rp6 16:59, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
- Real it in a little bit there; no need to get so worked up. I didn't say I couldn't tell the two apart, I just initially thought "Cain" was short for McCain, and it confused me at first. I've just been reading a lot more about McCain than Cain recently, can you blame me? HelpJazz 17:03, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
- I guess you were okay to be confused. But no, it has nothing to do with McCain. --Rp6 17:06, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
What in the world is this? I thought we were trying to build an encyclopedia here! --Ampersand 20:43, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
Comedy thought: you could call them "NovoCain's" too. BenHur 23:38, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
Cain was a vegetarian
Cain was indeed a vegetarian. According to Genesis, Noah was the first human who God allowed to eat meat, after the flood. He was also the first to drink alcohol.--CPalmer 11:48, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
- So then I guess Abel was, too - seems worthy of mention, no? BobbyW 12:03, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
Abel was a shepherd. Cain was a tiller of the earth. Read your Bible, and then we can have this discussion. --Rp6 12:04, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
- And they were both, like everyone before Noah, vegetarians. BobbyW 12:05, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
- I seem to recall everyone being a vegetarian before the fall, though my memory's a tad shady on that. I don't know if there's any specific reference to either of them being vegetarian or not.
- It's a shady analogy at best, guys. Certainly nothing worth edit-warring over. :-) Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 12:08, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
God created mankind vegetarian. God told Noah after the flood that he could eat meat. In the world before the flood, the people were very wicked. We don't know when people actually started eating meat; those wicked people before the flood may have been eating meat, although I doubt that it was as far back as Abel and Cain in their younger days.
