    Not a famous person, but my mother, through her mother, can trace our relatives all the way back to the Pilgrims arriving on the Mayflower.

    That would mean you were a product of incest.


    :)


    The bible says they were the first Humans, but later on it also says that adam and eves children went out to other places and married. Implying there were OTHER people besides the ones birthed of adam and eve.

    Religion and all those dang contradictions....... :)

    My great-grandparents had a return trip ticket for the Titanic... I probably wouldn't be here if it didn't sink, as depressing as that sounds...

    I am famous to the world, No....look..U all know me. If that's not fame, I dunno what is.

    PS....In the Age of Adam & Eve.. Children were allowed to get married. It was much later it was prohibited..
    Like..Alcohol..Muslims drank Alcohol & was prohibited much, much later.

    I have an ancestor (who I apparently strongly resemble) that got thrown out of the herd for taking too many banana breaks.

    The quickest search of facts refutes much of that. Why don't you bother to check anything first? What do you mean "recent history." Infectious diseases played a huge role in early, physical disabilities. Marriage between royal familys is not generally defined as incest.

    Marrying cousin is not incest. It is allowed in Islam too.
    Incest means Same mother or father. Same mother can also means if both a breast fed by the same women.

    Genetic disorders started to appear after it was prohibited.
    After Human generations were divided into separate nations, Marriage with blood ties as above was prohibited.

    It is like a plague.
    If you keep on marrying sister and brothers, you will not be divided into nations. Nations were made for the fact that we are to be at peace with each other and to learn from different cultures.

    It's same as Aids. Due to adultery, and Incest among families AIDS was sent as a plaque to those who do not listen. A cure for aids will never be found. Only cure is for you to follow the rules of God.

    Yes.

    Depends on the definition of "Fame". Doing something stupid to stay alive, yeah. Dad and Grandpa also. Heck, I've been on TV a few times. That, along with employ, is why I don't/can't reveal much at all.

    Just thought of it, I'm on Spotify. :)

    In the early '80s there were an ensamble that should release a Christmas album with Christmas songs. Between the songs, there were some talking, and I was one of the characters. Just a little boy then... But it was fun.

    Haven't seen the Spotify cash filling my bank account, yet.
