Banned From Universe Today
Censored and banned by Ian O'Neill for quoting Velikovsky. Here is the quote:
"...it was accepted that the solar system has no history at all. So it was created if not 6000 years ago, then 6 billion years ago. But then for 6 billion years there was no change. Whether it was created or came into being by tidal action of a passing star which would be catastrophic as the tidal theory wishes or it is growing out of a nebula, the nebular theory which goes back to Kant and Laplace, but since creation there was no change. But if what I am telling you is truth, then there were changes, and very many, and very recently too." -- Immanuel Velikovsky, cosmologist, 1966
Despite losing readers due to censorship enforcement, they are more concerned with information suppression than they are with inclusive discussion and diversity.
And for Nereid, here is George Gamow's failed prediction of 50 degrees kelvin made in 1961, just three years before it's actual discovery. He was only off by 4 orders of magnitude (10 x 10 x 10 x 10).
