"Do you believe the whole Bible?" I was asked today by a group of 3 teen girls. "I mean do you believe in Adam and Eve and if so surely they were involved in incest!" This is a common issue raised by genuine (and some not so genuine) enquirers. The truth is that they had more sons and daughters than Cain and Abel and yes brother and sister married to procreate our ancesters. God forbade incest later in Leviticus 18. The issue here is the sharing of "Genetic damage". God forbade incest to protect us from ourselves, a risk that was not present in the pre-flood early generations like Adam's. Another teen said "Science has proven Evolution". I said "Evolutionary science has proven evolution". Chance cannot explain the complexity and life we see. I said that if they had an open mind they should google "creation science" and read some scientific arguments for special creation.

Perhaps you could extend them the same courtesy and learn a little about evolution?
