Then you weren't answering the question, which was incredibly straightforward and made no mention whatsoever of "first-life" or whatever. If you don't know the answer to his actual question, that's fine. As newolder has pointed out, there's plenty of info out there if you wish to have an informed view of the topic.

Let us all agree on the existence of our complex bodies(1)--though we don't yet know everything about them(2). We should all agree on this second point as well. (I offer as one example of what has yet to be determined, whether the human body has a "soul.")

It's true, we haven't determined that a soul, something which has been asserted to exist without any evidence whatsoever, resides in the human body. Not sure what that has to do with anything, though, since we were talking about common ancestry, which not only has evidence, it also refers to things that actually observably exist.
