    This has evidence against it, by other research. There is evidence to show that an aversion to incest develops naturally even when the people are not related.

    "normal" people aren't turned on by the same gender either. what DON'T you understand about that?

    Pretty much my thinking too. So far many of the arguments I've seen against it revolve around the abuse of minors and women, which sounds more like an argument against how the marriage is conducted than against polygamy in and of itself. It seems if you're going to argue against polygamy because of the treatment of women and minors, you'd have to come down on two-partner marriages because domestic abuse exists in some marriages.

    Perhaps not, but they aren't hurting anyone else or their offspring (either immediately or down the road) with possible genetic defects either. Incest messes with the gene pool. That is why it is such a disgusting thing to even think about. It's supposed to be disgusting to you.

    And this is off topic anyway. The topic is polygamy, not incest.

    what part of

    Anal membranes are easily damaged during sex, facilitating the spread of infection. Past studies suggest that anal exposure to HIV poses 30 times more risk than vaginal exposure
    is so difficult for you to understand?

    Because it usually starts long before a person is a "consenting adult." It goes hand-in-hand with child molestation by a parent or family member.

    And if a baby is born, genetic abnormalities CAN occur. If they aren't seen immediately, they will usually occur at some point down the road in future generations.

    usually....... not always. If you can prove that is the case, then it shouldn't be allowed...on a case by case basis. and you are talking extremes. how many father/daughter or mother/son cases do you really think there would be anyway?

    I'm talking more along the lines of cousins
