|I would think that deliberate design (intelligent or not) would produce way more copying from one "lineage" into another than what is seen in biology.|
But maybe that's just me?
It's not just you. Look at designed animals: unicorns, dragons, pegasi and all the other fantasy animals humans have designed. Mostly they are a mixture of parts taken from different lineages. Avian wings on a horse makes a pegasus. Bat wings on a big lizard make a western dragon.
The norm for a designed animal is to have way more cross-lineage copying than an evolved animal.
The ultimate truth is that there is no ultimate truth.
