Religious Fanatics

Science has been working with Religion as a constant drag on the necessary interchange of findings. As an example I was talking with a very intelligent small town man who goes to church faithfully. He wanted to clear up a question I might have regarding the book of Genesis. He said obviously something was awry with the story of Cain and Abel; that after murdering Abel Cain could not have found a wife in distant land as his people were the first. He gave me a sincere stare and said "Cain had to marry an Ape". I had to work hard on a straight face. That was funny but at least he saw something wrong with the biblical account.
