Editorial guidelines

  • Editors do not make unqualified judgemental statements. Instead, we attribute and cite (and place in context).



  • Velikovsky was wrong.
  • Phil Plait wrote: "Velikovsky was wrong, as were the scientists at the time." Philip C. Plait, Bad Astronomy
  • Velikovsky was right.
  • Velikovsky proves catastrophism has taken place.
  • Einstein wrote to Velikovsky about Worlds in Collision, "There is much of interest in the book which proves that in fact catastrophes have taken place which must be attributed to extraterrestrial causes", Albert Einstein, "Letter to Velikovsky", July 8, 1946
  • Scientists have disproven Velikovskian catastrophes between Venus and Earth.
  • In a letter to Velikovsky, Einstein wrote, "However it is evident to every sensible physicist that these catastrophes can have nothing to do with the planet Venus and that also the direction of the inclination of the terrestrial axis towards the ecliptic could not have undergone a considerable change without the total destruction of the entire earth’s crust. ", Albert Einstein, "Letter to Velikovsky", July 8, 1946
