I have a homosexual question and incest question?
Imagine if every contry accepted homosexuality, and i'm not against it though because most of our values are based on greece democracy (With a little reactionary religion like christianity in the mix).

Now thats all good.

But...

What if brother and sister loves each other so much that they want to get married and live the rest of their life with each other, imagine incest parade where they are proud to be together.
Of course there will be a law where they cant create babies with each other otherwise it will be genetically bad, so they will adopt.

Now if that was set. If there would have been a vote poll for "Yes" or "No" for incest marriage.

What would you have answered?

Are they consenting adults? If so I don't think it should be anyones business but their own. But revulsion to incest is hard wired by evolution because of the negative consequences so it is a much much lower percentage of the population than Homosexuality (which has evolutionary advantages) so the chances of a rash of incestuous relationships popping up is rather low. This is what is known as a slippery slope fallacy.

I agree with Rev. It is highly unlikely that incestuous couples would increase.

And you can't make something illegal just because some people think it's icky.

Could you please expand upon what those are - not because I disbelieve you but it would help to stop a common theist retort....

I agree with the above.

Two people of consenting age can do what they want.

There are several advantages, mostly in helping with child rearing. Also the sheer number of species that have homosexuality (several hundred do) lead one to think there must be some advantage for it to be so widespread. The science is not super advanced here as it is a question that has only been asked relatively recently but here is a link that summarises the current thinking.

RE: I have a homosexual question and incest question?
I would have to get past the idea of having a romantic relationship with my brother...ICK! But I don't care for him as a person, so there's that.

Mostly, I don't care who a person wants to have a loving relationship with as long as they are consenting adults.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF
