Murder in the Bible.

    Maybe Cain went into the field and "accidentally" tripped Abel so that he fell into the spinning swords guarding the tree of life.

    Was Abel only keeping goats....I thought it was also sheep since his sacrifice was called lambs in many translations. That would mean that clothing was made from sheep's wool.

    New Living Translation

    4 Abel also brought a gift—the best of the firstborn lambs from his flock.

    For a strict bible literalist, there would of course be the logical problem of where the third and fourth humans ever to live on earth would have gotten a sword in the first place.

    I.E. - who mined the mieral ore, discovered metallurgy, crafted the sword, a time when a population of less than half a dozen people would have to have been hunter-gatherers to have a minimal survival.

    Unless, of course, the fundamentalist waves his hands in the air and proclaims that God gave them the sword.
