Because they evolved from different species and different mutations.

Everyone is born with DNA mutations everyday if the Mutation is helpful to your survival then it'll stay that way and that mutation will be passed down through generations. But of course it's possible that 2 or 3 or 19 different mutations although they are completely different, work in the exact same way and are equally useful... So these where different mutations that worked equally as well.

Also the Giraffe and the Elephant are different species so the Giraffes mutation to get taller wasn't offered to the elephants. They had their own mutation which was growing trunks.

Read (if you find it. if you can't inbox me) The Book of Enoch. It is one of the lost Dead Sea scrolls and it has a passage that describes, in detail, a pre-adamic society.

a priest told me he ****** his mother.

Sorry for putting it bluntly and making it seem like a joke, but a preacher actually told me that

One possible answer I've got about that was that Adam and Eve were the FIRST man and woman, not the only ones.

The Bible has a large amount of plot holes and impossibilities, I think its really more about the 'meaning' than the ticks and tocks of what was written down.

Then why is it that so many people follow it so avidly and nobody listens to the real morals that should be Valued like "Love thy neighbor" or "Be treated how you want to be treated".... I'm pretty sure that the people who protest gay rights in the name of god wouldn't want to be protested against.

Cain and Abel were Adam and Eve’s first two children but they had many, many more children. Since at the time life spans covered multiple centuries, this meant that Adam and Eve had many children and these children grew and spread out and had many children of their own. There is every indication that by the time Cain was able to take a wife, there must have been dozens, perhaps even a hundred or more of people living on the earth. Besides, “God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground” (Gen 1:28). Too key verses are mentioned: “Be fruitful and increase in number” and also they were to “fill the earth.” Since there was limited space and resources where Adam and Eve lived and the fact that they had many children, they must have spread.

After Cain murdered his brother Abel, God sent him away and he ended up living east of Eden (Gen 4:16). This is where Cain met and married his wife and they bore a child named Enoch (Gen 4:17). At this same location, Cain built a city and we can assume that if he built an entire city, there must have been many other people living there already or at least nearby. Therefore, by the time Cain was an adult and was sent away by God, Adam and Eve must have had many other children and by simple addition and then multiplication, there could have been at least hundreds of descendants already having been spread out and multiplied around the areas of Eden. There is no doubt that Cain married a relative of his parents Adam and Eve but since Adam and Eve were blessed by God and they were fruitful and multiplied and their descendants spread out over the earth, there was no difficulty in Cain finding a wife at all. With life spans of over 900 years for the first human beings, this easily gave adequate time for multiple children and these dozens of generations of the children of Adam and Eve to have their children’s children who had children and so on. These children had children who became Adam and Eve’s grand children, great grandchildren, and on and on.

Then why is it the bible says that there where only three children... but then the bible fails to talk about the third Child and only focuses on Cain and Abel.

These are alot of assumptions with no evidence. (I really don't mean to sound antagonizing, I'm sorry if I come across as such)

It also named Seth, the third son, but later clarifies in Genesis 5:1-5 that he had more but didn't count or name all of them.

So why does the bible name three children but not the others that are being assumed up in your original comment?

I personally don't know why the others werent named or why we don't know how many there were, but we do know they were there because of Genesis 5; theyre not totally assumed.

Well if we assume that this is true... Then it's safe to say that we all came out of incest correct? Knowing what we know about incest today don't you think that the children born wouldn't have been able to survive in that time with all the physical strain that was needed in that time period? Wouldn't the extremely probable mental disease that they obtained from incest hinder them? And wouldn't there offspring have the high possibility of birth defects?

Adam and Eve are Cain and Abels Father and Mother.... Have you read Genesis?

And the man knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man with the help of Jehovah.

2 And again she bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
