Emmanuel, came to mind immediatley for me. Did you ever read the Pensee articles in the 80s discussing how aspects of his theories were being proved correct. I had posted comments relating to the book Velikivsky, Reconsidered put out by Pensee on the site in years past. It was great reading in the 60s and 70s and then fun to see how much actual space exploration was showing that his outright dismissal by mainstream science was, perhaps, a little overwrought.
Given standard theories wrt the history of our solar system and our own planet, nobody should be finding cities and villages on Mars, 2100 feet beneath the waves off Cuba, or buried under two miles of Antarctic ice.
