My friends are living proof I have always been open to the aspect of incest, I grew up with a couple (that I'm still friends with) that are brother and sister and have 3 kids( 3 perfect healthy girls).
Those of you that believe baby's that come from an incestuous relationship are going to be deformed are delusional.
1 out of 4 baby's will have some deformity or mental issue (non-incest couple)
6% of baby's that come from a incest relationship may (MAY) have an issue.
The ratio of a baby having a deformity is low, you have more % chance of catching HIV.
All of you that surrender yourself to religion and the news are dumbfounded.
I have a masters degree in Biology I look at the facts, not what the bible tells me.
This is a question for religious people.
If God put us on the earth, and Adam and Eve were indeed the first humans, if we came from them, doesn't that make us all brothers and sisters.....Now you see we are all practicing incest every minute of every day.
I don't believe in religion, that gives me the freedom to be open minded and a man of science.
What happens behind closed doors is no body's business accept the people involved.
Who are we to dictate policy to adults that want to live differently. Would you like me to come into your lives and tell you who you can love and who you cannot.
We need to worry about our own baggage instead of other people's. No one is asking you to practice incest, just like gay couples who want to get married. Who are we to say otherwise.
If God is going to punish them in the next life if their is such a thing than why should it bother you.
This question was raised about should incest be legal between consenting adults, not adults with children, alot of you seem to forget that when posting your replies.
I do not condone the abuse of a child. People like that should be shot.
That is classed as sexual abuse.
Judging from my studies and the dismissal of religion, their is nothing wrong with incest.
