I think it's important to note that our characters and the NPCs (when considered in-character, not in the omniscient narrator view) don't really know what happened in the titan and pre-titan eras of Azeroth. NPC text and books found in game don't have to be true. So citing them as an argument for one point or another isn't really valid. If there's a book in game that says "X race came from Y race", that doesn't mean that X came from Y, it just means that an NPC wrote a book that said that.And even then, Bliz is careful to put some contradictory in-game evidence. Bliz is deliberately keeping the ancient history somewhat murky because that adds to the realism of the setting. From an in-character perspective, our characters wouldn't know what happened in the distant past.Now, of course, some points are more settled than others. Like the "gnomes from mechagnomes (built by titan agents) via the curse of flesh" origin hypothesis looks pretty solid. But other historical points are still very much up in the air.
