A REALLY weird ethical dilemma of Marriage and Incest

OK, according to Scripture, once a person is married, he is to remain married - except in very specific circumstances.

And incest is an abomination.

What to do?

Just a guess. I figured it's about the same odds as successfully navigating an asteroid field.

Yep. Can't imagine such a cruel thing to find out. Better now than after they have a child with some server genetic-caused deformity.

As for the asteroid avoidance - wonder how those aliens traveling at the speed of light manage to avoid them? y:-? Maybe they hit the brakes and swerve? What?

lets see the red flags:

1) born on the same day

2) look a lot alike

3) both adopted

4) have a lot in common

I think BigHamster may have been referring to this:
So they made their father drink wine that night, and the firstborn went in and lay with her father; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose. 34 On the following day, the firstborn said to the younger, “Behold, I lay last night with my father; let us make him drink wine tonight also; then you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve [ag]our family through our father.” 35 So they made their father drink wine that night also, and the younger arose and lay with him; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose. 36 Thus both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father. 37 The firstborn bore a son, and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day. 38 As for the younger, she also bore a son, and called his name Ben-ammi; he is the father of the [ah]sons of Ammon to this day.
Genesis 19:33-38
John 5:24
24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

Adam and Eve's children certainly had sex with their siblings - who else? Unless...

Actually, I was referring to the possibility that we could all be the progeny of Noah's children after the flood. That would make us all ~50th cousins.

Consider the earth shattering implications of this....... I could borrow $50 from you all and never pay it back. After all, what are cousins for :-)
