No, it can't. The figurative parts of the Holy Bible are clearly
identified. The geneanlogy of Adam wasn't figurative.

The Holy Bible claims that Eve claimed that she was "beguiled" by Nachash,
and that she received a child, Cain, from "the LORD".

Why did Even claim that "I have gotten a man from the LORD" when she bore
Cain, but no such thing when she bore Abel and Seth?

"Not different at all. The difference is"?
Let's try that again: "Not different at all. The difference is"?
So is it, or is it not, different?

You bet. This doesn't even deserve a response.

But the Holy Bible DOES list the genealogy of Cain--and the point is that it
is not the genealogy of Adam.

"The LORD" Eve was referring to was Nachash, not the LORD God.
Why do you think the distinction is there? Why have two different phrases
for God? Throughout Genesis, "the LORD" and "the LORD God" are references
to different entities.

There are many different Hebrew words which are all translated as "God", but
that's exactly the opposite from this example. In this example, Eve
believes Nachash is "the LORD", and she always refers to God as "the LORD

And Christ called them LIARS, descendants of a LIAR, "and the father of it",
for making that claim.

This is precisely the source which does support this, and the only reason
any of these 264 million Christians might "think that [this is] wrong" is
because they're flooded daily by jewish LIES.

>From H119; ruddy, that is, a human being (an individual or the species,
mankind, etc.): - X another, + hypocrite, + common sort, X low, man (mean,

The reference to "ruddy" means that Adam and his descendants can blush,
which is something that many races, like the jews and niggers, can't. Why?
Because jews and niggers aren't descendants of Adam:
