While the possibility of Vulcan being a derivative of Tubal-Cain is interesting, I’d have to see evidence that, in the original languages, this could be so.

(What Islam and secularism have in common is that they are both death cults.)
The Greek god of fire and smithing was Hephaestus.
Vulcan was his Roman counterpart.

But a disturbing picture emerges from the sparse snapshot of family life as it came to develop among the Cainites. In the case of Lamech, the seventh from Adam, we see that the primal law of marriage to one woman had already been cast aside as irrelevant , Lamech was a polygamist.
So, marrying one sister was ok but two, or more was not?

The Tower of Babel
11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.
3 They said to each other, Come, lets make bricks and bake them thoroughly. They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.
5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.
English has already become the "common" language of the planet. Knowledge has been increased 100 fold over the last century and half. We are now out of the "Roman Age". Take a man from 1880 and put him into 200 AD and he would be able to adapt quite easily, same with a man from 200 AD put into 1880 AD. Take both of those men and place them into 2012 AD and they would have a very difficult time.

While all of this is very interesting I personally feel it is a huge reach. The solution that God gave all mankind to be relieved of the curse, death, if you will was His gift of sending His eternally perfect Son into the world to be punished for our sins. To be resurrected and share eternal life with us if we simply follow Him and obey His commandments.
The solution is still available to all who will partake of it.

(Surely my religion is at least as good as yours)
I love and hate the book of Genesis at the same time. For every verse I have at least 10 questions that will never be answered.

Noah showed himself to be a master of all the Cainite “evil” technologies” by building a boat(using God’s plan), harnessing animal husbandry, he could plant vineyards and farms ect....
The world’s first Great Godly Polymath.... whom God used to to preserve humanity!
Joseph was another one!
