Velikovsky could have saved America four trips to the moon. He gave them 17 things they should check when they went to the moon and "finally," when moon exploration was all over, they had made those checks he recommended. Velikovsky was a contemporary of Einstein at Princeton. When Einstein died shortly after the Venus probe was sent and burned up, Einstein died. When they went to clear Einstein's desk, they found he was rereading Velikovsky's book and making notes in the margin. Velikovsky was a fool? I figured you'd say that. Who is the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?— Obwan Kenobe, Star Wars Copycat Parrot... Nothing original. All you know has academia painted all over it. Try thinking out of the little box.
