Geneticists discovered a "Y-chromosomal Adam" and "Mitochondrial Eve." What exactly does this mean? That regardless of if the two people are Adam and Eve or not,the genetics demonstrate common ancestry from one man and one woman. They were also not apes.

"Mitochondrial Eve" is estimated to have lived between 99,000 and 200,000 years ago, most likely in East Africa, when Homo sapiens (anatomically modern humans) were developing as a population distinct from other human sub-species. The dating for "Eve" was a blow to the multiregional hypothesis and a boost to the theory of the origin and dispersion of modern humans from Africa.

Interesting article by Alasdair Wilkins "Why humans are all much more related than you think".  Includes information and discussion on genealogical statistics that can become tangled when factoring in the in-breeding common in British & European Royalty.  Also comments on the much-talked-about Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) and Nuclear DNA vs Mitochondrial DNA.

Mitochondrial Eve refers to the matrilineal most recent common ancestor (MRCA) of modern humans.  She was the most recent woman from whom all living humans descend, on their mother's side, & thru the mothers of those mothers  back until all lines converge on one person. Since all  (mtDNA) is generally passed from mother to offspring without recombination, all mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in every living person is directly descended from hers by definition.
