I was reading Vielikovsky in the '70's, and then Carl Sagan and the "nuclear winter " crowd put out all their propaganda, then I found out about how sagan, et al tried to silence Vielikovsky from even publishing, that sort of told me what sort of idiot sagan was. Tongue-tied turkey.

A good thing Velikovsky did was research out a lot of archaeological information. He might have put some of it together in creative ways, but the data remains. There are parts of shredded mammoths, sabertooth tigers and musk ox in the frozen muck around Fairbanks, Alaska. I have seen some of these. Whatever happened wasn't all that long ago in geological terms.

Mars is central to Velikovsky's chain of events, and while it doesn't appear likely that Mars came close by earth recently, still Mars looks like something catastrophic happened. Half the crust appears to be missing, just as half of earth's crust is missing. Earth has a moon to explain the missing crust, but Mars has nothing but some questionable asteroids that don't come close to Mars now if they ever did.
