If you believe that the Bible is the word of God–and a lot of people do–then you also believe that we are all products of the Original Incest. Without getting too bogged down in the details, if we all came from Adam and Eve, their grandchildren were necessarily products of incest.
Fast forward to the flood. Everyone that is alive today shares a common ancestor in Noah. And since the offspring of Shem, Ham, and Japeth (Noah’s sons) must have necessarily engaged in incest to continue human breeding, we’re all also children of the Second Great Incest, or the Flood Incest.
We are all Children of the Original Incest.
We are all Children of the 40 Day Flood Incest.
Which incest are you more proud of? Which incest will you teach your children about? These are all questions that we must decide individually.
But when you say your prayers tonight, if you’re glad to be alive, take a moment to thank God for the Original Incest.
