|hehe-- Your question has only become a question in modern times with the advent of vasectomies, but I would have to guess that God's opinion would be that your scenario would be OK with Him from one angle (absolute moral code), but not OK from another. I would guess that He would say not to do it because you would no doubt get into failed vasectomies, etc. with the resulting deformities.|
Incest derived offspring can be perfectly normal. There have been cases in the past where family inbreeding took place over several generations without any serious problems. Sure, there is a much higher risk of abnormalities but it's not a certainty. With the right genetic screening, it will one day be possible to reduce the risks to a minimum. Does that make incest right?
Anyway, the whole discussion is pointless. If God said it was okay then and not now, then what other explanation do you need? After all, God said it was okay for Joshua to commit genocide a number of times while conquering Israel, not to mention condoning the murder of thousands of babies, children, mothers and fathers, and the rape of their surviving virgin daughters.
