Description

With the Fall, migration became the lot of humanity as Adam and Eve were driven out of the Garden of Eden. Cain and Abel were second generations but one of them had issues with the command of God on what to present for sacrifice. The conflict that ensued between the two brothers led to the migration of Cain away from where the parents were settled even though that place was not the original settlement of their parents. This could possibly be the beginning of globalization (exchange of ideas and intermingling), conflicts and wars between communities, nation-states and across cultures which has led to the mass migration that the world now experiences. During each movement, the original culture, language, religion and worldview are affected positively or negatively by the time of the second generation of migrants. The second generation migrants have a form of the old but influenced by the new environment. With the help of historical analysis and social network model this article takes a look at the identity crisis faced by the second generation migrants as it affects the culture, language, religion and worldview.
