What does R&S stand for? Google search offers me no clue (it cannot be Rohde & Schwarz).

Yes. The current theory that is well substantiated by evidence is that everything living currently shares a common ancestor. That means even us H. sapiens share an ancestor with E. coli.

How can two very different forms of life have a common ancestor? The bifurcation in the lineages split nearly 3 billion years ago. Plenty of time + lots of mutations + differing selective forces = extreme diversification.

This is like asking how could a Black person and a White person share a common ancestor.

Though I'm sure you undoubtedly thought you just shattered the theory of evolution by asking this question, I must thank you for at least having the courage to post this in the biology section rather than R&S.

If you click on the other section titles on that forum, you find that each one has sub-sections. One of the sub-sections of "Society and Culture" is "Religion and Spirituality". I think that's what it refers to.
