    Genetic disaster from polygamy

    Wow, I knew there were problems with the excommunicated FLDS groups, i.e the infamous Jessops clan, but I didn't realize it included horrible birth defects.

    See:
    http://www.bbc.com/future/story/2017...netic-disaster

    "The boy had unusual facial features, including a prominent forehead, low-set ears, widely spaced eyes and a small jaw. He was also severely physically and mentally disabled.
    In every case, the child had the same distinctive facial features, the same delayed development
    After performing all the usual tests, Tarby was stumped. He had never seen a case like it. Eventually he sent a urine sample to a lab that specialises in detecting rare diseases. They diagnosed “fumarase deficiency”, an inherited disorder of the metabolism. With just 13 cases known to medical science (translating into odds of one in 400 million), it was rare indeed."

    "Faith Bistline has five cousins with the disease, who she used to look after until she left the FLDS in 2011. “They are completely physically and mentally disabled,” she says. The oldest started learning to walk when he was two years old, but stopped after a long bout of seizures. Now that cousin is in his 30s and not even able to crawl.
    Fumarase deficiency is rare because it’s recessive – it only develops if a person inherits two faulty copies of the gene
    In fact, only one of her cousins can walk. “She can also make some vocalisations and sometimes you can understand a little bit of what she’s saying, but I wouldn’t call it speaking,” she says. They all have feeding tubes and need care 24 hours a day."


    This is the leader of the FLDS, now in prison, and some of his many daughters:



    Some of his dozens of wives:


    When your followers believe you are God's prophet, you obviously don't need to be a super-man to have lots of women. Also, you have to be willing to kick out all your superfluous sons.

    Right indoctrination from early age does this "miracles". It takes ages for Canadian government to act on this problem. From 1996(?) polygamy, and taking part in any way in it, is against the law.
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    It just infuriates me: some of these girls are only twelve, and these boys are abandoned by the side of the road, and all to feed this pervert's (and others like him) sexual appetite.

    Oh, to top it all off, my tax dollars are going to support them all. They don't claim to be legally married, and so these women apply for welfare and food stamps and medical care as single mothers with children.

    Just look at that little worm; You obviously don't have to look or act like a Genghis Khan to have thousands of descendants in a couple of decades. You just need brainwashed people.

    Incredible! I saw an episode of the Blacklist featuring the exact same kind of religious sect with highly polygynous men taking brides as young as 12 and teenage boys being abandoned in the woods and becoming wild humans, but I didn't know it actually existed!

    Osama Bin Ladin's family is also very inbred, and the result is apparently than he has quite a few children, out of 24 or so, who have developmental problems.

    https://gnxp.nofe.me/2017/09/11/inbr...medium=twitter

    The article says he himself isn't inbred, but I'm not sure that's correct. Anyway, he and his first wife are first cousins, and apparently, those first cousin marriages go back multiple generations. That sort of thing results in the couple actually being more on the order of half siblings or closer.

    This is a big problem in the Middle East as a whole. Why educated people (Bin Laden himself was a civil engineer) would continue with this practice is beyond me.

    Because nothing is certain till God is Willing. Other than that people are reckless, romantic, in love, spiritual, risk takers and not many with good common sense to balance it. Did you see people riding bikes or having a dip in the middle of hurricane? Nuts!

    Well, his "Education" didn't stop him from becoming a fundamentalist, education is nothing without critical thinking.

    You're both right, I guess. I myself am so "grounded" I'm practically growing into the earth, and I suppose I judge these things from my own perspective.

    Having read what repeated, multiple generations of breeding between first cousins can do, and if I were, moreover, to actually see the results in the innocent children in my own family, nothing, neither God nor man, could induce me to do it willingly. To suffer oneself is one thing, but to inflict such suffering on children who didn't ask to be born is another.

    True. But it's weird how he was able to get a degree in engineering and be trained by the CIA. Both of these would require critical thinking talent, I'd assume. But his morality was lacking in many obvious ways. It's possible to be immoral and highly intelligent; consider the unibomber....he has a PhD in mathematics....from Harvard!

    psychopaths lack empathy, not critical thinking.

    What blows me away is that they had to create a 'church law' requiring participation to 'get into heaven'. Young also traveled across the U.S. in his quest for a place to land and raped the women who let him stay on their premises, because it was his 'right'.
