Incest Fiasco Continues To Amuse
"FYI, in India it is a common practice for a man to marry a first cousin on the mother's side (daughter of his uncle). This is not considered incest. (Incidentally, Prince Albert was Queen Victoria's first cousin). However, genetic diversity has been well maintained in India by the restriction of marriage within the same gotra (if you know what that means)."
It pains me to have to respond to this 'exposed' person. (I will take a shower immediately after completing this post.)
However, just for his edification, he may refer to http://www.bioline.org.br/request?hg02010 (there must be plenty of other sources if one cares to search/research).
The relevant statement (if he has difficulty reading such serious stuff) is : "there is a long tradition of uncle-niece marriage and unions between a man and his maternal uncle's daughter (mother's brother's daughter) in South India."
However, I more or less agree with the idea that marrying within families is common practice... among out-of-the-way backward communities and tribals, not civilised society. Should this argument be employed, the unwitting ramification would be complete agreement that Sai Baba belongs to a backward community in an out-of-the-way hamlet (Puttaparthi) which is a fact recorded in all of the official biographies!
