    I submit we can be better than honest. We can be informed. Cain did
    something we can substantiate. He built a city and named it "Enoch" after
    his son. Enoch, or E-Anna(k), is named in the Sumerian king list in the
    post-flood period. The name was corrupted to "Erech" the Sumerian "Uruk."

    Further, the En- prefix designates Enoch as a king or lord of that
    city. His cousin also bears the En- prefix suggesting he also reigned over
    a city or cult center.
