From Veronique Greenwood’s article called: “We Are All Princes, Paupers, and Part of the Human Family”:
But while genetics doesn’t reflect much of our imagined genealogical uniqueness, it’s shown that we’re more closely tied to our species as a whole than we might have realized. We’re all part of this enormous human fabric, full of fascinating tendencies and bizarre biochemistry. And research is revealing more and more about humanity as a whole and our incredibly beautiful, incredibly unlikely perch in the universe. That’s a tradition to be proud of.
And no, this doesn’t mean there was an Adam, an Eve or a talking snake.
