Dain Bramage

Bumped into a commentary of Orac's on this Darth Misha character earlier, but I didn't go as deep as PZ did. He bumped into this one juicy gem of anti-wisdom:
If any two species chosen at random share a common ancestor, would that not imply that every living creature today was ultimately derived from one singular "Mother-Beast"? Just what did this creature look like (I imagine a bulbous sphere, fourteen stories in diameter, with various heads sticking out all over: cow, porcupine, squid, human, etc. Most are confused; none are happy.)
I wonder if this guy learned about evolution by playing Jade Cocoon backwards. Maybe not. Even in that game, the critters had something resembling HOX genes.

No, but he did learn about how cavemen lived by watching reruns of the Flintstones.
