well the Neanderthal genes bit would seem to be as we
do seem to have any descent from them. Wasn't there an
Eric Frank Russell novel in which the world is divied
into cro-magnon descendants (the rulers) and
neanderthal descendants (the ruled) which all turns
out to be a big hoax.

Velikovsky was a great one for all this too, although
I can't recall any mention of the Pleiades from him.
Disapearing stars were just the sort of thing he would
have loved. My father "borrowed" all my Velikovsky
books many years ago and I never found out what
happened to them - I couldn't find them after he died.
 Hmmm - Velikovsky + pleiades on google gives 288 hits
- I look at them later, the first few don't seem to
suggest he had an explanation.
