Default Wouldn't the children of Adam die of inbreeding due to incest?





Adam and Eve had children, - twins were born [as mentioned by Ibn Katheer], and one from each pair would marry the other from the other pair. They would then have children, so that the population of mankind grows.


Wouldn't the children of Adam die of inbreeding due to incest?
Now to answer the question - this is a response by Abdul Fattah;

Mutations also aren't as common as you make it seem, and it is very unlikely that the first children already all had these mutations. It would probably take several generations.

Secondly, merely for the sake of argument, even if their children would have these mutations, it's highly unlikly for them to all have the same mutations, hence the second generation will not have an issue with this either.

And thirdly, again, as muslims we don't believe in the existence of chance, everything follows a cause and effect. And you build on the premise that indeed an omnipotent and omniscient God created them, then it seems perfectly plausible that God didn't "cause" any mutations to occur in the first few generations, untill there was a large enough population to intermingle.

It's likely that mutations were gradual, or for later generations - so humans started to have different appearances due to differences in their genes as generations progressed.

Answer:

First of all, Just because Eve was made out of the rib of Adam doesn't mean they had the exact same DNA, for all we know It could have been altered during the process of creation, this is all pure speculation which carries zero weight as argument. Furthermore I think it's very narrow minded to build on the premise that Adam and Eve were indeed created by an omnipotent, omniscient God, and then not to assume that he could make their genes compatible.
