Cain, Abel, and the lessons we can learn, but most people don't

But Cain answered the Lord, "My punishment is too great to bear! Since You are banishing me today from the soil, and I must hide myself from Your presence and become a restless wanderer on the earth, whoever finds me will kill me."
Then the Lord replied to him, "Therefore, whosoever slayeth Cain vengeance will suffer vengeance seven times over. " And the Lord set a Mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
So God is saying that no one should kill another man out of vengance, even if said man is a murderer, and Cain is saying that living with the guilt of his sin, all alone because of it, is too great a punishment. He, and everyone who participated in the making of, and who reads almost any Holy book, as this story is featured in almost all of them, should know that there are way worse punishments than death.
If that's the case why is that the most religious countries, America as well as some parts of the middle east, I'm not being discriminatory, have revenge killings, and capitol punishment? 
Still, God also says thou shalt not kill but people still kill in his name. I wonder what would happen if most Christian fanatics actually read their bible properly. 
Don't get me wrong, I believe in God, and my dad is a good Christian, who's willing and able to accept gays, and science. I think he believes that God is more of a "why" and not that much of a "how". I'd like to see science and God come together, but I don't really see it happening any time soon.
Perhaps God is what "banged" the big bang, and maybe he's the one who created evolution. My views on evolution are sketchy at best, but I do believe at least, in adaptation, it's near impossible to deny.

  2. @Neonlol really? It wasn't just religion, there was less point back here than there is now actually, I just felt like bitching at the people who claim to live their lives according to the bible but clearly don't.
