I have been reading "The Velikovsky Heresies.” It talks about his book “Worlds in Collision.” In that book he claims that Venus is a comet that became a planet in a fixed orbit. Scinetists have scoffed at his ideas and said they are impossible.
Recently, I found out that astronomers have discovered a planet that acts as a comet in the same manner as Venus. I think there may be some truth to Velikovsky's theories.
Life only got started one time here on earth....."The most profound and true statement that ever was"...as Mr Byrne has expressed it..
Does anyone even dispute that? If true, I believe it is, this seems to be the 800lb ‘gorilla in the room’ on many issues discussed here at AO... Why hasn't life happened over and over on a planet so perfectly suited for live? Why not every day and in the creek behind my house?. And why is this not the most important (and least likely) component in the Drake equation of probabilities for ETL?
Why and how could ancient people have dragged railway cars sized block of stone and stack them up together to form these amazing constructions? Why is it that we have found thousands of Pyramids scatter across the globe? These structures are truly a global phenomena that have puzzled archeologists for centuries.
