Incest in the Bible are facts
There are many incestuous relationships in the Bible. It is best to concentrate on the stories where there is some moral judgement, Positive or negative, Of those relationships. Some instances are merely described and not commented on. But some of those occasions include some of the most highly revered figures of the Bible, Who are said to be righteous and just, Like the person of Lot, Who fathered children with his own daughters. Others, Such as Abraham and his half-sister, Are actively rewarded by God for incest (in their case, Rewarded with a child). God made incest necessary by creating just two humans to start off with (Adam and Eve), And later, By killing off all humans except Noah and his family (at which time, Animal-kingdom incest was just as necessary). Although Noah's family was already a spiderweb of close family marriages: the five generations of parents that preceded both Noah and his wife Emzara all descend from just three individuals1. Inbreeding causes countless genetic problems in families, Which get worse per occurrence and leave detectable dents in the genetic makeup of species. Yet, In our genetic record there are no signs of periods of intense incest in Humans resulting from Adam and Eve, Nor are there such signs in animals nor humans resulting from inbreeding after Noah's Ark. After creation, And after the flood, Incest was rife and necessary, As part of God's plan. So it can't be bad or immoral, And to condemn incest is the same as saying that God's plan is evil. Even if you take the story of Adam and Eve and Noah as myths, Their moral teachings imply that incest is ok. Predictably from such a disparate collection of writings, Incest is explicitly condemned in quite a few other places in the Bible.

Incest in Hinduism is only an allegory symbolism.
Over and over again, We hear about incest in hindu philosophy from the people of abrahamic faith.

This is the story they claim, " saraswati was brahma's daughter and but they both ended up copulating and becoming husband and wife". The claim is, He married his own daughter.

Question to ask is, Don't hindus know about it and if yes, Why do they still rever brahma and saraswati? Why they still regard them as divine? Well here is the answer:

Ancient indian philosophers call any energy that goes in creation as Brahma, The one which operates as Vishnu and the one which destroys as Shiva. Brahma, Vishnu and shiva are three names to describe the three kinds of energies which govern the existence of anything and everything in the universe.

Since everything was created, Every thing owes its origin to the energy we call brahma. Knowledge, Known as saraswati, Was also created at the beginning of time. So, Symbolically, Saraswati is the daughter of brahma.

But once the knowledge was created, The creative energy united with the knowledge and complimented each other for further creation.

if you look at the partners of other energies, You can understand this better.

Vishnu the energy which maintains and operates goes hand in hand with laxmi, The wealth or the resources. Shiva, The energy which destroys and transforms is partnered and supported by parvati, The power. Similarly, Brahma the creative energy is a partner of saraswati, The knowledge.

This brings us to the paradox in hindu philosophy, Where knowledge was created by Brahma but is also partner of brahma. All those who claim about incest in this symbolic text are the ones who can't understand the abcd of hinduism and are just ignorant about its great philosphical depth.
