Because of common descent. You have ears because your parents had ears.

Whales, humans and bats have the same hand structure because of common descent, not because it makes any sense to "design" them that way. Human designers don't build submarines, cars and aircraft on the same frame.

The fact that there are different eye structures in squid and humans, for example, suggests that if they were designed, it was probably by different departments with poor communication between them.

As a builder and/or designer would design and/or build storage sheds with less complexity and appearance, etc than mansions, so the mansion would not descend from the shed, or vise versa but both could be designed and/or built by the same common designer and/or builder, using common materials, such as nails, roofing and lumber.

Both the mansion and the shed would have roofs, siding, floors, doors, and perhaps, windows etc, albeit, a common designer but not a common descent, just as whales, bats and humans might have similar .

Designed things like submarines, automobiles and aircraft do all require power plants, steering mechanisms and electronic components just as whales, bats and humans might require similar appendages for survival.

Pectoral flippers have all the skeletal elements of the forelimbs of terrestrial mammals...

    1. The forelimbs of baleen whales are pectoral flippers. Pectoral flippers have all the skeletal elements of the forelimbs of terrestrial mammals, but they're foreshortened and modified into paddle-shaped appendages. In rorquals and gray whales, there are four digits instead of five; the thumb bones are not present.

    Pectoral flippers have all the skeletal elements of the forelimbs of terrestrial mammals, but they're foreshortened and modified into paddle-shaped appendages.

    2. The skeletal elements are rigidly supported by connective tissue. Thick cartilage pads lie lengthwise between the bones.

    3. Baleen whales use their pectoral flippers mainly to steer and, with the help of the flukes, to stop.
