Common Design
Common design would explain it just fine.
That's like saying "evolution would explain it just fine" without even saying what "evolution" is.
In this and other threads (and in millions of other sources) exactly how evolution produces the observed results (like DNA relationships, fossil record and lab experiments).
So to offer "common design" as an alternative explanation we'd have to see the same level of details. How is the design done and implemented? How is the "design" reused to produced the observed results? Those and 10,000 other questions would need to be answered.

ancestor's tale
but I reject common ancestry
Once upon a time there were no humans (H. sapiens) on the planet. There were creatures with a lot of characteristics of humans though.
At at time before that there were no creatures that looked all that much like humans but did have more basic characteristics that we have still.
Long before there were creatures very different from us but even then some basics were the same.
How do you explain that? Somewhere back there our ancestors must have walked (and crawled) the earth. Somehow we got from life forms not much like us, to ones a lot like us to us.
