    the argument surrounds circumstances under which you are fully aware of the relationship between the two parties.

    obviously circumstances where you do not know differ greatly.

    Yes but many people become so disgusting with this topic they are disgusted with avengance, which means they don't think very well and let their prejudicial views carry them overboard, such as making incest a strict liability offence for example.

    All she has done is made the point that if you don't know a relative very well as a relative then it isn't as bad as they are a relative that you have grown up with. She also asks the question how close is too close I mean say I was to date my fifth cousin is that still too close. Not that I am dating a fifth cousin I don't even know if I have one but what if.

    Cousins marrying each other is very common. There is nothing revolting about that.

    I think brothers and sisters would be strange. Cousins, not so much.

    Wrongness is entirely relative, so yes, if it is deemed wrong on this forum, then, relative to this forum - it is wrong. Again, if the population feel that incest cannot be justified, then morally, relative to the population, incest is wrong.
    morality isnt decided by public opinion

    'investment boy' - "what are you a redneck"... classic stuff man, had me in fits.

    I suppose physically there is nothing wrong with it... nothing that has been proven conclusivly anyway, especially between distant relations. And in the increasingly liberal world we live in, opinions are less strong then they used to be.

    however, morally, anyone who would even seriously consider it, let alone actually do it is well fuked up in my opinion. I mean exercise some bloody control, what are you... a monkey?

    I feel that morality is sometimes dictated by public opinion. There may have been several points conisdered immoral about 50 years ago which do not apply now.

    It's a strange how people come across incest and make these remarks. If I am not mistaken this topic was initially touched upon by the Church, and so, when incest wasn't illegal in this country, the ecclesiastrical (sp?) courts dealt with it. It was the Church who decided who can do have sex with who in the family tree. It seems their teaching has worked still today.
