The lunatic Caligula now suddenly took it into his head to transplant this custom to Romeóto transplant it with all the religious pomp of the Egyptian monarchy, and thus transform the family of Augustus, which up to the present had been merely the most eminent family of the Roman aristocracy, into a dynasty of gods and demigods, whose members were to be united by marriage among themselves in order not to pollute the celestial purity of their blood. A fraternal and divine pair were to rule at Rome, like another ArsinoŽ and Ptolemy, whom the Alexandrian throngs had worshiped on the banks of the Nile. The idea had already matured in his mind at the end of the year 37, and among his three sisters he had already chosen Drusilla to be his wife. This is proved by a will made at the time of an illness which he contracted in the autumn of the first year of his rule. In this will he appointed Drusilla heir not only of his goods, but also of his empire, a wild folly from the point of view of Roman ideas, which did not admit women to the government; but it proves that Caligula had already thought and acted like an Egyptian king.

He immediately had Tiberius Gemmellus killed to get rid of any possible rival to the throne.As well,he had always had a passion for his sisters and had incestous sex with them.He had a special interest in his sister ,Drusilla, whom he actually married and got pregnant.Drusilla however died early on in his reign was consequently diefied as a goddess.After the death of his sister,Caligula married Julia Claudilla who died young and after her death he attended a wedding where he ran off with with the bride, Livia Orestilla,whom he divorced after a few days.Soon after ,he married the rich Lollia Pollina before divorcing her and finally marrying a woman named Milonia Caeconia in 38 AD.Caeconia was pregnant at the time of the marriage and Caligula took the child as his own because he believed it must be his because she was so mean with the other kids.Also,Caligula often engaged in homosexual sex with men, most notably the Greek actor Mnster and his brother inlaw Marcus Aemilius Lepidus
Also goes nowhere.

Oh, BS. What you think of as children were considered old enough to marry.
The fall of the roman empire came from overextension of the military, constant wars, and the introduction of christianity, which destabilized the government. Who they screwed had nothing to do with it.
<quoted text>
tribunesandtriumphs.org

One of the main causes for the Fall of the Roman Empire was the Decline in Ethics and Values. Life became cheap - blood shed led to more blood shed and extreme cruelty. The values, the ideals, customs, traditions and institutions, of the Romans declined. The basic principles, standards and judgments about what was valuable or important in life declined. The total disregard for human and animal life resulted in a lack of ethics - a perverted view of what was right and wrong, good and bad, desirable and undesirable. Any conformity to acceptable rules or standards of human behaviour were being lost.

I may be wrong about Caligula being married to his sister but he did have sex with her and treated her as his wife in fact leaving her his heir.
There's a LOT of dispute as to whether or not Caligula had an incestuous relationships with his sisters. A lot of historians believe it to be untruths spread about by Caligula's dissenters. It's no secret that Caligula was nuttier than a bag of squirrel poop. While he was much loved when he became emperor, he took a very dark turn in his reign and it's believed that it had to do with illness, either Epilepsy or Syphilis. He became tyrannical, cruel and outright crazy which led to his assassination.

It's also true that Drusilla was his favorite sister. She was the only one he trusted to the point where he had his cousin Germanicus, who at point was deemed his heir, put to death because he believed Germanicus was plotting against him. Drusilla was no longer considered heir once his daughter, Julia Drusilla, was born and Drusilla ended up dying of fever.

You stated Caligula married his sister. That's incorrect. He did not marry his sister. It's disputed whether or not he carried on incestuous relationships with any of his sister.

You moron, learn to read. I was talking ONLY ABOUT CALIGULA. And NO ONE was talking about children, just incest.

Anyone telling "horror" stories was never actually Wiccan, and they're lying.

Why would I need to do anything about your pedophile priests? Don't be stupid.

From go.com
This ark, located an hour south of Amsterdam, is a replica of Noah's Biblical boat. Underwater archaeologist Robert Ballard is in Turkey, looking for evidence that the Great Flood happened.
ABC News
The story of Noah's Ark and the Great Flood is one of the most famous from the Bible, and now an acclaimed underwater archaeologist thinks he has found proof that the biblical flood was actually based on real events.
In an interview with Christiane Amanpour for ABC News, Robert Ballard, one of the world's best-known underwater archaeologists, talked about his findings. His team is probing the depths of the Black Sea off the coast of Turkey in search of traces of an ancient civilization hidden underwater since the time of Noah.
See photos from her journey HERE
Ballard's track record for finding the impossible is well known. In 1985, using a robotic submersible equipped with remote-controlled cameras, Ballard and his crew hunted down the world's most famous shipwreck, the Titanic.
Now Ballard is using even more advanced robotic technology to travel farther back in time. He is on a marine archeological mission that might support the story of Noah. He said some 12,000 years ago, much of the world was covered in ice.
"Where I live in Connecticut was ice a mile above my house, all the way back to the North Pole, about 15 million kilometers, that's a big ice cube," he said. "But then it started to melt. We're talking about the floods of our living history."
The water from the melting glaciers began to rush toward the world's oceans, Ballard said, causing floods all around the world.
"The questions is, was there a mother of all floods," Ballard said.
According to a controversial theory proposed by two Columbia University scientists, there really was one in the Black Sea region. They believe that the now-salty Black Sea was once an isolated freshwater lake surrounded by farmland, until it was flooded by an enormous wall of water from the rising Mediterranean Sea. The force of the water was two hundred times that of Niagara Falls, sweeping away everything in its path.
Fascinated by the idea, Ballard and his team decided to investigate.
"We went in there to look for the flood," he said. "Not just a slow moving, advancing rise of sea level, but a really big flood that then stayed... The land that went under stayed under."
Four hundred feet below the surface, they unearthed an ancient shoreline, proof to Ballard that a catastrophic event did happen in the Black Sea. By carbon dating shells found along the shoreline, Ballard said he believes they have established a timeline for that catastrophic event, which he estimates happened around 5,000 BC. Some experts believe this was around the time when Noah's flood could have occurred.
"It probably was a bad day," Ballard said. "At some magic moment, it broke through and flooded this place violently, and a lot of real estate, 150,000 square kilometers of land, went under."
The theory goes on to suggest that the story of this traumatic event, seared into the collective memory of the survivors, was passed down from generation to generation and eventually inspired the biblical account of Noah.
Looking for something is not the same as finding something. Just ask all the UFO buffs, the people looking for Yeti and the people looking for the Loch Ness Monster. And don't forget all the people searching for Bat Boy.

I don't 'want' to believe anything in particular. Do you think I care if some crazy guy slept with his sister or didn't? If you say he didn't that's fine, he didn't and if you say he did that's fine too.

They did find something. An ancient shoreline with sea shells carbon dated back 5,000 years. Why is it so hard for you to believe that there was a flood and it is talked about in the Bible?
