And in any event there are two matters the Velikovskians aren't

1. Einstein was a kind and gentle man, encouraging to many people
he didn't agree with (cf his relations with Zionists).

2. Einstein was wrong on one of the central discoveries of this
century, quantum mechanics. Where there is one point of error,
there may be others. So even if he _did_ support Velikovksian
views, this is not in itself proof of the correctness of those
views. * Bruce Baugh, posting from but not for Teleport
