Wow, there's a lot to digest here and it's going to take some effort to address all of this...

I think that is a possible eventuality, but it certainly would take years, if not decades to corrolate into one simple explanation. It wouldn't be
the first time a number of seemingly disparate observations are to be found related. For example, sunshine, electricity and fire, while different are
still united under the blanket of nuclear physics. They are particles in different stages of excitement and movement.
To tie all anomalies under one UNIFIED theory has been suggested before by that scientist with the wild white hair. I don't think he made the final
What reason could there be for mythological similarities given genetic divergence times between cultures?
There I suspect the most powerful of all media... the oral tradition. It is my opinion that the most ignored facet of historical reference holds the
keys to the true history of Homo Sapiens sapiens. Memorized storytelling with the use of memnonics is hard to rewrite for political reasons. The
voices of generations long gone can be heard if one chooses to listen.
Does history really repeat itself?
Generally, but not specifically. Different effects on our civilizations cause varied problems. Super El Nino's, Supercaldera eruptions and the like
can decimate the worlds populations within a generation and 500 years is only a drop in the bucket to our 200,000 years on this planet. It wasn't
that long ago when we traded tools and amulets with Neanderthals.
Is there a trail of genetic and isotopic breadcrumbs reaching back through the millenia that parallels not only our true evolutionary and
historical past, but our future as well?
Are we underestimating our extinct hominid relatives?
Probably, but the consensus is that our hairy low-browed friends did not have the capability for artwork or shamanism.
I'll leave the second part of your questions to others.
