Consanguineous marriage

H/T Lee:

Consanguineous marriage:  The property of being from the same kinship as another person. The quality of being descended from the same ancestor as another person.

Several Pharaonic dynasties collapsed after a couple of hundred years. In order to keep wealth and power within the family, the Pharaohs often married their own sister or half-sister and after a handful of generations the offspring were mentally and physically unfit to rule.

Royal families often married among each other because tradition did not allow them to marry people of non-royal class. The high amount of mentally retarded and handicapped royalties throughout European history shows the unhealthy consequences of this practice. Luckily, the royal families have now allowed themselves to marry for love and not just for status.

The Muslim culture still practices first cousin marriage, predating the world’s oldest monarchy (the Danish) by 300 years. Muslim inbreeding impacts intelligence, sanity, health and society.  Here is a well-documented article examining this practice.

The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,657,000,000, or 24% of the world’s population. Muslims have earned a total of 12 Nobel Prizes. The Global Jewish population is approximately 14,000,000 or about 0.02% of the world’s population. Jews have earned 129 Nobel Prizes.


Might Consanguineous marriage explain this?
