Steve Drexler I know people argue Adam and Eve had daughters. I went to catholic schools for the first eight years and not once did I ever hear about them. I also have about 15 years of being the organist too… Still no daughters…..

Miguel Angel Torres-Candelaria Those two motherfuckers! (See what I did there?) Here’s how it went because I witnessed it. Cain and Abel took turns boinking their mommy. Abel went out of turn, Cain found them, killed Abel, was turned away from Adam and Eve because Adam was afraid that Cain would find out that he too took Eve out of turn and casted him out where Cain went to the land of Nod and took a wife. WAIT! WHAT?!

God chilled on Sunday but might not have completely retired.
