    Link: The Ostrich People - I guess on some level this shows evolution at work.

    Not incest, consanguinity. And that`s why people who only want to date/f*ck/marry people of the same religion/skin color/tribe get progressively more fuxed up after each generation.

    i thought this was that lobster claw deformity, Ectrodactyly, but yeah it runs in families, so if they`re all somehow related it would happen

    It`s not really evolution. Evolution is members of a species having a mutation and having better survivablity than other members of the species without the mutation.

    What we have here is a disease that is just limited to a consanguinous society. No way is that deformity going to help them live better. Probably making their lives worse IMO.

    Incest might cause some deformities but after all if you loff someone then you loff someone :D

    Eh. This though shows why incest is illegal.

    Lol at least it`d be easier to walk on sand. With their feet spread out like that it would diffuse the weight more evenly(I think..?) And idk if I believe it, since it IS on the sci-fi channel

    If you think about it, it sadly adds up.

    Monkey brother had sex with his monkey sister. That`s probably how we got here...

    It`s not incest, it`s a recessive trait. If everyone in a breeding population carries that trait, it will be perpetuated. It`s like hemophilia with the royalty in Europe.

    Incest doesn`t normally cause this sort of thing. Incest is only a problem if there`s a recessive illness in the family, because then it has a far greater chance of coming out in the offspring.

    So, marrying within the family only affected their feet? I`m surprised that`s all it did every time...

    Well if you believe in "religion" then we all support incest since we all came from Adam and Eve. Hell more recent we all came from Noah and his wife. I mean come on, if the world was flooded then those two were the only ones to survive.

    but two generation or so after Noah, God seperated the human race into languages. So after that, human in-breed amongst same-language/same-country people. Which results in some deseases being more pronounced in some culture. That is how the story would go on for someone who beleive in christian religion. (budhist have different theories on the origin of species). And from there we can also say why red-skin lived in america, black-skin in africa, white-skin in europe and yellow-skin in asia. But anyway, according to evolution, humans inbreed within their own continent and the result is the same. And now with multiculturalism, more species of human exists (like the brown-skin people (named `metis` in french)).

    Sigh... Disney channel theology.

    "God found one good man, Noah... to bring with him his wife". Disney channel stops there. "...and his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and their wives".

    If you`re going to summarize all of (the many) Christian beliefs for an audience, don`t screw it up at stage 1.

    P.S.
    Whether you`re Jerry Falwell or Darwin, you still commonly believe in *some* form of incest being our origins. At least with the biblical version the incest starts with 2 organisms and not 1. ;)
