I think that in Christianity (from where this belief originates), Adam and Eve were the perfect humans created in God's image. The fact that their family had to participate in incest in order to 'be fruitful and multiply' meant that each new generation had lost some of those features of perfection. This is, I think, why God ruled out incest later on - because the human race's physical features were in decline and to lessen that effect, people had to partake in as little incest as possible.
But I'm not a Christian, and I'm not a mono/polytheist, so I wouldn't know.
