I think perhaps you meant to say Noah. If you believe in the biblical account of the flood, then yes, everyone would be descended from Noah since he, his wife, his three sons, and their wives were all that survived the flood. Moses came much later and there were many other people living in the world then so not everyone would be his descendants.

No, I believe more in evolution and common ancestors that evolved into the species we know now. And for all of those who just believe in the bible, well it is clearly wrong on some things because it said the world was flat.
Religion, I think, has a big part in this. Usually, if you have no religion, it means you believe the big bang theory and think that everyone evolved from monkeys. For those that have a God-believing religion, they usually think that God created the universe and figures like Noah, Adam and Eve, Moses, etc. So, it all depends on if you think that we came from Noah, or came from monkey butts. (no disrespect for monkey lovers here)

Evolutionary scientists have done extensive DNA analysis of tens of thousands of people from all over the world, and they have connected humans back to a very small group of human survivors of--something. Although they cannot tell what the catastrophe was, it very likely had something to do with climate, and they think the number of females of reproductive age may have been reduced to as few as 20 to 40. This is not a theory of earliest human origins--so you who disagree, don't get all excited. It's one conclusion drawn by one group of scientists.
Technically we and NOAH him self all are the descendents of ADAM. At that time there were many people along with NOAH. The companions and those survived were different people some were old and some were younger to NOAH himself. So how can be older people be descendents of NOAH.
The truth of the matter is, there are believers and non-believers. Religious questions always seem to stir the pot. So, keep believing or disbelieving and one day we will all know the answer...Believe that!
No. Moses was a Hebrew who drew Israel out of Egypt and helped form a particular community that developed into today's Jews. If the Biblical account of Moses' life is to be interpreted literally, his descendants might be Samaritans, as only the tribes of Benjamin and Judah remained true to Judaism after the Babylonian Exile. Most Jews deny the Samaritans come from the divided monarchy and say the other tribes are now extinct.
If you go far enough back, everyone and every living thing shares a common ancestor. Even asexually reproducing life has an ancestor in common with you. But, it's highly unlikely that we are all descended from Adam, then Moses, then Noah, or however the fictional order in the Bible goes.
I'm pretty sure you meant Noah from the flood story. I really hope you look into the facts of your question because there are tons and tons and reams and reams and thousands and thousands of science and scientist that not only does not support but actually proves conclusively beyond a shadow of a doubt that Noah's flood never actually happened and it's impossible for any of us to be descended from a mythical character called Noah.
No, that story is based on an older story, an like all tall tales grew with age. There was no flood that covered the earth, and there was no ark with two of every animal. So that would be a big NO, we are not all descended from Noah.
