If you have not read Stories Versus Truth, you may want to read that before reading this.
You may get a question that presupposes evolution and millions of years like this, "In the book of Genesis 4:17, And Cain knew his wife---where did she come from? There is no women to be Cain's wife." Here is another example of the same reasoning, "If God used Adam's rib to create Eve, wouldn't that make her essentially a twin of Adams? Wouldn't that mean that their sex was incest? Thus their offspring should be deformed, no?" Sometimes these questions come from a follower of Christ who is honestly searching and sometimes from a scoffer who isn't thinking clearly.
Keep in mind that disobedience to God started the degradation of everything. This is where pain and suffering originated, but the degradation just gets worse over time. It didn't happen all at once. This degradation also affected the information in the cells of every living thng. At first, there was no degradation. It has taken 6,000 years for the information to degrade to the point where it is today.
Cain took his sister--Adam and Eve's daughter--as his wife. The human genome was still fully intact at that time, so there was no restriction on marrying one's sister. As time passed, the genome was damaged. I'll explain that a bit below, just in case you may be curious. As time passed, a restriction was placed on marrying siblings, but it was OK to marry some close relatives without fear of birth defects. Abraham married his half-sister. When the Law was given, many years later, God restricted marrying of close relatives.
This would also all apply to the question about Eve being formed from Adam's rib.
