Go Forth And Be Incestuous?
Why would a creator start with a tiny initial population of people, thus forcing them to commit incest in order to reproduce?
It doesn't even bear thinking about how the first few generations in any creation myth (or epic flood survivors) went about having more kids.
On a similar note, isn't it rather an immoral way to get a son, by crossbreeding with one of your own creations? Did the mother have any say in this?
So it seems god is genetically, or magically, compatible with us. No doubt believers can back this up using scripture, where it says "god created us in his own image."
But what does that even mean? God has eyes, teeth, opposable thumbs and a backside?
Obviously one of those is for speaking out of, but why would a god need the others?
