I will let the Scriptures speak for themselves: As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one... For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.. ...

C Rags answer is the best one so far because it is based on Scripture (Unfortunately as of now I can't comment neither vote up on his answer).

Was Noah and/or his family fully or partially descendant from Cain? Yes it seems possible, perhaps not provable, but how could anyone say for sure? Genesis - it simply does not give the ancestry for any of the women. Of course the idea that Cain is responsible for sin and evil being in humanity is just patently false. That would truly have been Adam and Eve! ...

Were all Nephilim evil? Impossible to say, but I doubt it. Let us start by seeing who the Nephilim of the Scripture may truly be: The Nephilim (Hebrew: נְפִילִים) were the offspring of the "sons of God" and the "daughters of men" before the Deluge, according to Genesis 6:1-4.

Enoch was the great-great-great-great-grandson of Adam and lived more than 4,000 years ago.
