I disagree. First of all, it is clickbait;

"All humans are descended from just TWO people and a catastrophic event almost wiped out ALL species 100,000 years ago, scientists claim"; lets see that claim in the story, and which catastrope they talk about.

Nope; they take another well-documented extinction and talk about that. Now comes the origin of the title;

"The study has been misunderstood by some religious parties who thought it meant that we all came into being in some seminal Big Bang-typed event 100,000 ago, but this isn't what the findings actually suggest."

So, to clarify; 100.000 years ago there was an catastrophe, but they don't explain which. Yes, modern humans can be traced back to a few entities. I say a "few", because there is Neanderhtal-genes in me, and those predate your Eva which is the grandmother of modern man (so, no, a western man cannot be traced to a single adam), which makes the title wrong.
