Bible – needs revision?

Though I don’t accept Bible as a holy scripture, I feel the time has come for its revision atleast…

When we write against incest relationships in discussion forums, they (those who like/support incest relationship) immediately give reference of incest relationships in Bible.

As per them, population increased, because the first family (Adam, Eve and their children) practiced incest. Why should Bible condone such incident and set precedent. There are also other references of incest like Noah family and Lot.
Its true that we don’t have a rosy picture of our sexual past, but the collective wisdom of generations be commended for creating a social order. When we look at the mushrooming of incest & other abnormal sexual groups in the social networking space, it’s alarming. The incest lovers take an easy escape route, pointing out the incidents quoted in the religious books.

Thus, as mentioned earlier, religion and its scriptures look more sinister than divine. As we move forward towards humanism/atheism, we need to discard or revise those, which are impediments, like the Bible.
