Shit Science Reporting

The Telegraph, supposedly a "quality newspaper" in Britain, gave us this on Friday :

Scottish lecturer found to be 'grandfather of everyone in Britain'

A retired lecturer who took a DNA test to find out where his ancestors came from has been found to be directly descended from the first woman on earth, who lived 190,000 years ago.

I am almost lost for words.
It's like living in a rIDley scott movie.

Healthy genes act as team-players. They are teamish!
Their winning plays are
salvations of an aliveness of which they are a part.
Only a fraction of genes are selfish/parasitic (and they
parasitize teams).

If man descended from a woman, WHY ARE THERE STILL WOMEN!?
