Ah, good catch! So, if we hear apologists using this explanation for the first time ever, we'll know where they got the idea.

Yeah, fun, fun, fun! :) It's just that I like my counter-apologetics consistent, we have such good arguments that we can afford to be precise and rigorous, unlike the religious guys who have to obfuscate and distort to survive in a discussion.

Yes, it was a good catch. I am aware of the discussion about a possible "Mitochondrial Eve and Adam" but frankly it didn't occur to me until after I and sent the piece in. Thanks for the conversation and thanks for helping me sharpen my thinking. Of course, I guess we'd still have to locate the "original sin" gene? Sorry, I won't open that can of worms :)
