  The Serpent Seed and the Kenites.
Murray infers that when God says "thy seed" to Satan, He is referring to the Kenites, the descendents of Cain which were literally produced through the literal "seed" of Satan.
Likewise, Satan's descendents are those who identify with him in his lies.
This is why Jesus said in John 8:44 to the Pharisees, "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father.

  Descendents - Music Downloads - Online
Formed in 1979, the Descendents' first lineup consisted of vocalist/guitarist Frank Navetta, vocalist/bassist Tony Lombardo, and drummer Bill Stevenson; initially sporting an edgy power pop sound inspired by the Buzzcocks, the group issued a debut single, "Ride the Wild," and then promptly vanished from sight.
When the Descendents resurfaced in 1981, they were a four-piece fronted by vocalist Milo Auckerman, a beloved figure within the hardcore community who infused the group's identity with both unmitigated teen angst and a healthy dose of goofball humor.
Somewhat surprisingly, Auckerman and Stevenson re-formed the Descendents in 1996 with All bassist Karl Alvarez and guitarist Stephen Egerton; in addition to mounting a tour, the group recorded a new album, Everything Sucks.

 An Interview with Drummer Bill Stevenson of the Descendents   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Once upon a time, The Descendents used to claim that they "couldn't sell out a telephone booth." Alongside the more political bands of the late '70s and early '80s, such as Black Flag and The Circle Jerks, The Descendents were a weird new phenomenon.
In the decade since Milo Aukerman left The Descendents to pursue a Ph.D. in biochemistry, and the band re-christened itself as ALL, the term "pop-punk" has been invented and punk has suddenly become a viable form of music.
The Descendents changed their name when Milo left the band in 1987 ("seduced by the fast-track lifestyle of biochemistry," as the band's bio puts it).

They aren't fawned over and fetishized like the Ramones or the Sex Pistols, but the Descendents are just as important, giving a voice to the suburban punks who didn't know the dress code and couldn't care less about the government or drugs or what the government was doing about drugs.

Descendents' descendants the Offspring (and for that matter, Hagfish, Goldfinger, etc.) would eventually pull off the mean feat of making I Don't Want To Grow Up, as well as the two revved-up-and-tuneful discs that followed it, seem ahead of their time.
No, the new Descendents have picked up right where the old ones left off, which is where All (Stevenson with Descendents alum, bassist Karl Alvarez and guitarist Stephen Egerton, and a variety of vocalists) have been stagnating without a decent frontguy for the past few years.
In fact, the only thing that really distinguished the new from the old when the triumphant Descendents played to a full house downstairs at the Middle East a week ago Thursday was the number of kids singing along.

Originally formed in their high shcool days, The Descendents recorded a 7" EP, "Fat," and an album, "Milo Goes To College," before splitting up in late '82, so vocalist Milo Aukerman actually could go off to college in San Diego.
Our original bass player could not go with us on the tour and so we have this friend Doug, from high school, who we've known for many years and he was very willing to make it out.

 DESCENDENTS LYRICS
The Descendents were way ahead of their time - they started to play pop punk while the Clash was still around, and over 10 years before pop punk became popular in 1994.
The EP opens with 'Nothing With You', an excellent example of just what the Descendents should be, followed by ''Merican', in which the band also succumbs to anti-American songs (along with all the other hundred million artists that have started doing so, even though half of them don't even feel that way).

An element's height exceeds an explicit height assigned to the containing block (i.e., the containing block's height is determined by the 'height' property, not by content height).
A descendent box has negative margins, causing it to be positioned partly outside the box.
It affects the clipping of all of the element's content except any descendant elements (and their respective content and descendants) whose containing block is the viewport or an ancestor of the element.

They are credited as one of the most influential punk bands ever by many critics, and are known for being the first band in the hardcore scene to sing about simpler topics than politics.
Their first and only release with this lineup was "Ride the Wild"/"It's a Hectic World", a double A-side of melodic surf-pop.

A villager hinted that I might be able to meet one of Jesus' descendents - a Mr Sajiro Sawaguchi, who is now in his 80s.
His family owns the land on which the grave stands and his house is at the foot of the mountain.

 The Descendents
Interestingly enough, I was introduced to The Descendents under similar circumstances to those Fat Mike describes in his song, though in my case it was ten or fifteen years later, and the band was performing together for the first time in almost a decade.
My friend Skatt (his name was Scott, but he was really into Ska…do the math) was so sure that he'd like The Descendents, a band we'd been told was a major influence on Green Day, NOFX and countless others, that he bought two of their CDs before they came on that night.
The final chapter of The Descendents' history to date came earlier this year when once again Milo returned and the band recorded an EP along with their latest album, Cool To Be You for Fat Wreck Chords, the record label operated by Fat Mike of NOFX.

Only time will tell, but this much is certain: If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the DESCENDENTS must go to sleep with flushed cheeks every night of the week.

Descendents: Milo Aukerman (vocals); Stephen Egerton (guitar); Karl Alvarez (bass); Bill Stevenson (drums).
On their first album since their 1996 reunion record, EVERYTHING SUCKS, '80s punk icons the Descendents unleash a fierce set of songs that fits seamlessly with their well-honed, melodic yet rocked-out sound.
Vocalist Milo Aukerman still emotes the way he did when he was a teenager, but now the odes to geek woe ("Mass Nerder") and gastronomic distress ("Blast Off") are joined by songs such as "'Merican," a scathing US government broadside worthy of Bad Religion.

 Milo Aukerman Interview
The conversation was rushed for several reasons; one because my amigo Joey J and I had taken the wrong bus and ended up in Queens, forcing us to walk across an enormous bridge and exhaust ourselves, and there was also an endless line of 'zine nerds behind me waiting for an interview.
That was mainly because once All left SST, I think they were looking to move on, and when we went to Epitaph, we took both bands with us and decided that would be best.
Every song about a girl, at least I can speak for my own songs especially, but every love song that we've ever done has been about a real girl that we were having to deal with.

 Plastic: Blacker Than Thou — Are Slaves' Descendants Getting The AA Shaft?
Experts agree that it's the descendants of American slaves who have been "disadvantaged by the legacy of Jim Crow laws, segregation and decades of racism, poverty and inferior schools, who were intended as principal beneficiaries of affirmative action in university admissions."
At Harvard, for example, the descendents of American slaves comprise "only about a third" of the African-American student body.
These descendents of slaves are outnumbered by "West Indian and African immigrants or their children, or to a lesser extent, children of biracial couples."

 The Vault: The Descendents Grow Up - Idolator
While watching the Minutemen documentary over the weekend, we were struck by this talking-head cameo by Descendents lead singer Milo Aukerman, who looks more like a friendly eighth-grade chemistry teacher than a pop-punk forefather.
We were also struck by how long it had been since we'd listened to the band's classic Milo Goes To College album, which, shockingly, turns twenty-five next year.
Don't let that suburban-dad leather-jacket look fool you: Descendents brought the catchy and the funny, and we believe Aukerman and pals deserve to be a bigger part of the current '80s-punk reassesment.

 The Prophet’s Descendants   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Syed is a title that in some Muslim countries is applied to a descendant of the Prophet (peace be upon him) through his daughter Fatimah and her husband, Ali ibn Abu Talib, who was the Prophet’s cousin.
He called on the closest of them to him and told them that he would not be able to give them any special status so as to be treated differently from the rest of mankind on the Day of Judgment.
Having said that, a number of scholars, particularly Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, feel that at times when the Muslim state suffers from weakness and is unlikely to win anything in war, depriving the Prophet’s descendents of the benefit of zakah may be counterproductive.
