Question: 1. What age was Eve when she birthed Seth? 2. What race was Adam and Eve? 3. Why do men seem to give in easily to sexual sins, more so than women? Aren't they the stronger sex? 4. Where did the giants come from and why aren't there any more ten feet people around?

Answer: 1. Genesis 5:3 says, 'And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years, and begot a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth.' Since Eve was made after Adam, we would figure that she was slightly younger than 130.

2. They were of the human race. That's all the Bible tells us. Obviously all the races on mankind originated in them, so they must have had quite a diverse gene pool.

3. Just because the average man is physically stronger than the average woman does not mean he is morally stronger. We do not know if men give in to sexual sins more than women, but if they do, perhaps it is because the male sex drive is agressive and intense by its very nature. It may therefore be more challenging for some men to reign in. As someone said, 'Men give love to get sex, women give sex to get love.' Maybe that explains it. Who knows why people do what they do? What we need to be careful of is that we never justify sin. There is never a legitimate excuse.

4. According to Genesis 6:1-4, the giants were the offspring of angels and human women. Most were killed off during the flood. Later there were others, but they were killed off by the Israelites.
