  • Noahs sons had wives of their own. I suppose future generations would have had cousinly insest, but brother/sister incest.

  • I've always wondered that myself : /
    I hope there wasn't any kind of weird incest stuff going on, yanno? lol. I'm sure God created another woman for him. Maybe someone will know.

  • There has to have been a sort of incest going on..otherwise where else would she have come from?? God didnt make anyone else....

  • It is not true that God did not create others only that Adam and Eve were the first. Though the Bible does not state this by the guidance of the Holy Spirit and study we can see in Genesis 4:16 that after Cain left the presence of the Lord he dwelt in Nod, verse 17 then tells us he knew his wife. This right here lets us know that God did indeed create others.

  • Most likely Adam and Eve had many children and there was incest, it wasn't wrong at that point in time like it is now.

  • I don't know about God creating other people, because all people inherited their sinful nature and curse from Adam and Eve, if other people were created after Adam and Eve then they would not have that curse on them. And anyway, it all started over again with Noah and his family. There would have had to have been incest then as well. If God was just going to create all new people, then why save Noah's family from the flood? They were still sinful, why not just flood the whole earth and start over with new sinless people?
