Question from jenny on 10-22-2013:
how did adam and eve populate the earth without committing incest?
Answer by Richard Geraghty on 11-24-2013:
Dear Jenny,

They, the original pair, had their children together, there being no body else to have children with. Their children had to mate with each other. That is incest. When a sufficient number of people were born there then became many families. Sex of parents with children or of children with children within the family was incest. Those within the family had to marry outside the family, a practice which binds different families together and is biologically healthy.

Dr. Geraghty
