Children, e/specially boys, have to be taught to be their brother's keeper.None of the characters were supposedly children when their deed was done.
They're mythological characters and so the lesson/moral is whatever the writer wants it to be. It's kind of the point of telling a story like that.
Assuming they were actually the sons of A&E, then what can U expect, of parentless parents/abandoned children.Assuming that, then they weren't parentless, were they? Abel was gone. Cain was banished. The world was presumably populated by other siblings of theirs, all of whom would have no choice but to find mates with their siblings. If the A&E story is to be taken at face value, the bible wasn't too worried about gene diversity or the morality of incest back then, or back in Noah's time when the gene pool was once again cut down to only 5 bloodlines, which at least is three more than last time.
