On Velikovsky

Ginenthal has said:

"So you know, you asked the question before: "What's it like to carry the mantle of Velikovsky?" What's it like to be called a crackpot 25 times a month by people who won't give you the decency of hearing you out, and looking at the evidence? The attitude is, "It can't be right, and therefore why am I wasting my time with you? [..]"
"The reason I think vitriol still exists with Velikovsky [from the scientific community] is essentially that there are journals. There's my journal [The Velikovskian], there's another journal Aeon, there's one in England, and there are Velikovskians working all over the world doing research and writing. [3]"
