TIL Charles Darwin married his first cousin with
Whom he had ten children. Three died as
infants and three were infertile. He was the first
to raise the question if incest may cause
weaknesses in offspring after studying inbred
plants in his garden.

    • Bullshit we knew inbreeding was bad because Egypt pharaohs had to marry their cousins or their sisters or something and all had messed up features and disorders. That’s why king tut had such an oddly shaped heads, his parents were siblings.

    • The thing is that any recessive traits or disease traits are expressed more if both your parents have similar traits. It's possible to have a perfectly healthy child, even with your sibling, but very improbable.
