How do evangelicals account for Adam & Eve, and later Noah? I'm not talking about the snake or the Ark... but INCEST.
Any biologist knows that the loss biodiversity would make for the denigration of life.
I can't say for sure, but I think it's safe to say that Christianity looks down on incest?
How then do they (Christians and Jews) account, within the creation story that we all descended from the same family... then again from a descendant of that same family? It goes completely against biological principals.
If we are all descendants of Adam and Eve (didn't they only produce two offspring, with one killing the other?), than wouldn't that make for incestuous affair after incestuous affair... until Noah, where it all starts over again?
It seems to me that the only valid argument against it would be that biodiversity developed from generation to generation as the human gene pool strengthened itself. BUT that would lend credence to EVIL evolution!
How can Christians escape THIS one?
Am I missing some common argument? And if I'm not, why isn't this discussed more?
