    Cain was before Noah. Only Noah's family survived. Cain's descendants drowned.

    Intermarriage between the descendents of Cain and the descendents of Seth makes these things possible. It doesn't matter because the Creation-flood story is not solid history as modern people understand history. Not until the story of Abraham is anything e en close to what a modern person reading history would expect.

    Don't read Chapters 1 to 11 of Genesis as historical fact.

    Noah's family were descendants of Cain.

    Is there a verse in the bible that says Cain's descendants are suppose to live on into the future? I would think this would only be a problem if it did. Otherwise these descendants being wiped out in the flood, would not be a problem.

    None of Cain's descendants survived the Deluge.

    The Kenites were descendants of Noah, who was a descendant of Seth.

    Are you perhaps thinking of *Canaan* . . . rather than 'Cain' . . . ?

    CANAAN was the fourth-listed **son of Ham** and **grandson of Noah**, born *after* the flood. (Genesis 9:18; 10:6; 1Chronicles 1:8)

    He was the progenitor of 11 tribes who eventually inhabited the region along the eastern Mediterranean between Egypt and Syria, thereby giving it the name “the land of Canaan.”

    'Cain', on the other hand, was the first child born to the original human pair,

    Adam and Eve. *None* of his descendants survived the world-wide flood.

    No one else survived. Noah and his family WERE the descendants of Cain.

    Noah's son Ham married a Canaanite girl named Egyptus. They had a daughter who they also named Egyptus. It was she who started Egypt. The original Egyptians were black.

    Who was the ancestors of Noah's son's wives, and Noah's wife? No one knows who they were.
