Dire needs call for dire measures.

For “Creation” to have happened there would have had to been a lot of inbreeding. Not a lot of differentiation within the species.

I believe they married each other. Indeed: oh my, oh dear, o boy.

yeah…really makes you question taking the bible literally…since Leviticus commands us not to have sexual relations with our siblings…

Don’t forget all the first-cousins having to hook up after the Flood. And they (the people) were lucky. The animals all had to get along with siblings.

…actually Genesis 7:2 says, “Of all the clean beasts, take yourself seven pairs, man and his woman…”

The problem is that you are all trying to inject logic into biblical stories.
