** According to the Bible, God took agriculture away from Cain after the murder of Abel, in Genesis 4:11-12:
--->And so, cursed shall you be by the soil that gaped with its mouth to take your brother's blood from your hand.
--->If you till the soil, it will no longer give you strength. A restless wanderer shall you be on the earth.

*** This is totally acceptable in Christian mythology, believe it or not. Incest was not specifically forbidden until the book of Leviticus and not widely accepted until around the time of Abraham.

** Because they ("they" being the writers) wanted to portray evil meat eaters versus good vegetarians, despite it not being true to the Biblical story (presuming they even knew that; a lot of people don't realize Cain was the farmer and Abel the meat eater and think it's the other way around).

* All the cannibalism and rape and brutality going on in Tubal-Cain's camp? That's what was happening among the ''strongest'' remaining human city's refugees, who'd lived close by enough to follow the birds to the Ark construction-site. For those dying cities that were too far away for the inhabitants to reach Noah's forest, their populations had probably '''already''' fought and ravished and eaten each other into extinction by the time the Flood struck.


** Possibly even a nod to the fact that, at this point, creating things is God's ''only'' benevolent miracle. It'll take a few more Bible verses until He actually starts decreeing guidelines, answering prayers, and demanding specific rites of worship.

Added DiffLines:

** Moreover, the opening text specifically said that Cain's descendants built an ''industrial'' civilization. It never said anything about them also discovering ''agriculture''. So it's hardly a surprise that the Cainites rapidly exhausted the world's plant and animal life, if they weren't raising any of their own crops or livestock.

* The fact that God's only referred to as the creator. A mere artistic change, or a nod to the fact that in the Hebrew texts, God's(or Yahweh's)name is never spoken aloud?

The Creator forbade His angels from helping the fallen mankind, an order which some of them disobeyed resulting in the Watchers. Given what happened to the Earth after they intervened, the Creator's orders indicate He had already foreseen how screwed up mankind would become when given knowledge and tools and let loose without any sense of morality, which is why he forbade them in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

** More importantly, they didn't have time or resources sufficient to build ''enough'' Arks to accommodate their own numbers. Tubal-Cain's not an idiot; he surely realized that if ''they'' built an Ark, his fellow-Cainites would immediately start fighting ''each other'' for possession of it, so if there's going to be a battle anyway then they might as well skip the drudgery of construction-work.
