    Merhaba, Atilla. In Genesis 19, when Lot and his daughters had fled from Sodom and Gomorrah, after Lot's wife had been turned into a pillar of salt, the daughters, fearing that their line would die out, inebriated their father and had intercourse with him, resulting in a son for each daughter (who were also their brothers!) named Moab and Bennami, ancestors of the Moabites and Ammonites. But think also, Eve was of the same substance as Adam, so they were brother and sister, and where did Cain's wife come from? She had to be a daughter of Adam and Eve, so she was Cain's sister. And Sara was Abram's half-sister. And Tamar tricked her father-in-law by disguising herself as a prostitute so that she would get pregnant by him after his two sons, her husbands, Er and Onan, had been slain by Yahweh. And Amnon, David's son, raped his sister Thamar. Lots of family loving in the Old Testament.
