The dates associated with the MRCA's is not important, what is important is that a Most Recent Common Ancestor existed while other men and women existed. This is only a coincidental argument and not my primary argument.
What we are saying is that if there was no real biblical Adam and Eve there would still be a mitochondrial Even and a Y-chromosome Adam. Any sexually reproducing population will have these two MRCA's. There is a set of these Adams and Eves for chimps, bears, bats, and so on. They are simply a product of pedigree collapse, where maternal and paternal lines tend to end which leaves just one line remaining.

My main argument is Biblical.
So where does the science part come in, with respect to Evolution?

Do you have a valid scientific source that links pedigree collapse to MRCA?
It is not that hard of a concept to understand. Take my brother-in-law as an example. He has 4 brothers and no sisters. This means that his mother's mitDNA line ended with her. Any father who has no children or only daughters will have his Y-chromosome lineage stop.
