Good point
But, where come from the citizens of Atlantis and from which planet come the 
Ancient Astronauts?  :-)
Quite curious to hear theories.
With best wishes

Ed and Lluis,

Maybe the Basques are direct descendents of the Ancient Astronauts, or
survivors of Atlantis. What do you think? …Bill!

Hi Lluis,
The mysteries of the Basque people and the Basque language have not been
fully resolved yet.
>From wiki:
"Since the Basque language is unrelated to Indo-European, it's often thought
that they represent the people or culture who occupied Europe before the
spread of Indo-European languages there.
It is thought that Basques are a remnant of the early inhabitants of Western
Europe, specifically those of the Franco-Cantabrian region. Basque tribes
were already mentioned in Roman times by Strabo and Pliny, including the
Vascones, the Aquitani and others. There is enough evidence that they
already spoke Basque in that time.
The Basque language is thought to be a genetic language isolate. Thus Basque
contrasts with other European languages, almost all of which belong to the
large Indo-European language family. 
Another peculiarity of Basque is that it has been spoken continuously in
situ, in and around its present territorial location, for longer than other
modern European languages, which have all been introduced in historical or
prehistorical times through population migrations or other processes of
cultural transmission.[19]
Theories about Basque origins
The main theory about Basque origins suggested that they are a remnant of a
pre-Indo-European population of Europe.
DNA methods for seeking ancient ancestry are increasingly being used to test
the origins of the Basques. An interesting possibility is that Parkinson's
disease may be related to the Basque dardarin mutation. Partly as a result
of DNA analysis, "...there is a general scientific consensus that the
Basques represent the most direct descendants of the hunter-gatherers who
dwelt in Europe before the spread of agriculture, based on both linguistic
and genetic evidence..."
Some studies of Basque genetic markers have also suggested the possibility
of a connection with Celtic peoples of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and
Cornwall. The shared markers are suggestive of having passed through a
genetic bottleneck during the peak of the last ice age, which would mean the
two peoples were in Europe by at least about 17,000 years ago, and probably
45,000 to 50,000 years ago.
Some authors have pointed out that the words for knife and axe may come from
the root word for stone, which would point to linguistic conservativism
preserving etymologies of at least the Neolithic. Mitochondrial DNA analysis
tracing a rare subgroup of haplogroup U8 places the ancestry of the Basques
in the Upper Palaeolithic, with their primitive founders originating from
West Asia."
