Is the whole humanity based on an incest?
So according to the Bible Adam and Eve were the first and ONLY humans created by God. We could say that their children commited incest and then their childrens children also did and so on. Why is incest considered bad today? Is this why we have diseases today? Children that come from an incest have high chances to have mental or other kinds of disorders. Or am I missing something?

Probably all life is based on incest - after all didn't the animals go onto Noah's arc two by two? Who did their offspring mate with?

Literal Genesis explanation: God made the first DNA perfect and it stayed that way until the devil magically corrupted it. Whaaaaat? Normal explanation: Don't read the Bible so literally. Adam and Eve are a representation of the first humans.
