So it came to pass, at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made. Then he sent out a raven, which kept going to and fro until the waters had dried up from the earth. He also sent out from himself a dove, to see if the waters had receded from the face of the ground. But the dove found no resting place for the sole of her foot, and she returned into the ark to him, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth. So he put out his hand and took her, and drew her into the ark to himself. And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent the dove out from the ark. Then the dove came to him in the evening, and behold, a freshly plucked olive leaf was in her mouth; and Noah knew that the waters had receded from the earth. So he waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove, which did not return again to him anymore.

"Came to pass" LOL, all those scriptures love that beginning.
And it came to pass that when the waters finally receded, man had to ONCE AGAIN inbreed with each other due to the small numbers, just like they did after Adam and Eve. Oh humanity, inbred twice over, you are doomed.
Nice artwork, though.
Also - thanks.
Well, that was atheist sarcasm. Inbreeding, by its purest definitions and applications, is most definitely not inevitable, you cannot be more wrong. As species breed, spread out, move out, evolve, etc inbreeding becomes practically impossible. There's always that "gray area" where you might breed with so-and-so five generations removed, whatever, but that's to the point where there's no effect on the gene pool.
Adam + Eve = kids. What do the kids do? Screw each other. What do those kids do? Screw each other, mom/dad, or grandma/grandpa?
Also, I would think that condemning the incest of the primordial people as inherently wrong. God does forbid inbreeding, but only once the human race has spread enough. In my belief, that is the sole reason we find inbreeding abhorrent today. We accuse God of breaking the early ased on the rules introduced later.
And somehow it makes sense to have God put humanity in a position of forceful inbreeding despite his infinite powers, and then somehow he's not a hypocrite when he turns right around and says inbreeding is wrong. None of this even makes an ounce of sense.
Your proof lies within the Fundamentalist Mormon cults, of Arizona and Utah. www.phoenixnewtimes.com/2005-1… Their religion is brand new, their practices are brand new, especially compared to the starting base of Adam and Eve. These faithful people inbreed with their own daughters, sisters, cousins, mothers, you name it, because the Fundamentalists believe it's right (look them up.) The result is an inbred population (who can't spread out much, the men need to remain to collect more women, the women are prisoners (literally) and their religion's not welcomed elsewhere) that has massive cemeteries full of stillborn and deformed babies. The death rate for their inbreeding is so high they have entire graveyards for kids, don't you understand that?
You cannot spark off an entire race in this manner, we'd all be senselessly retarded, which would make God a stupid asshole. I didn't make any of this up, the proof of absolute inbred failure is right there.
And God does allow that innocent children die of cancer or that families be destroyed by natural disasters. He's not a happy ending machine.
