Lets say Venus was a rock ejected from somewhere (ie Saturn birthed). This ejected rock now carries a 'charge' (whatever that may be).
As the rock-with-charge flings out to it's new position, lets call this a stabilising, but initially-irregular-orbit around the sun, it is now a charged object that is 'reaching charge-equilibrium', much like an electric comet's eternal glowing effort. Do you now have the energies available for some electro-synthesis processes? Who knows this may still even be going on.
So if we take the 'great comet' of Venus whizzing along, are we saying that *all* of the atmosphere came with? I certainly don't deny that *some* of the atmosphere will be retained from ejection, just wondering if we can indeed speculate that it would be retained in a violent event such as this? Is this the plasma-protection layering protection we are relying on here.
Charge exchange between planets via discharges would reduce atmospheres, but volcanism would increase them somewhat.
Was Venus not involved in a monumental charge exchange? Does this raise a contradiction? hmm.
And... given the time-frame of what EU might be suggesting of Venus's 'age', is Volcanism enough to build the 'thickest' atmosphere in 2-4k years? Caviate, i may be putting something out there that is total nonsense, I am just trying to build the picture of the EU *young* Venus having the thickest atmosphere, whilst bearing in mind an EU skeptical view of Olympus Mons sized 'volcano's'.... given Mainstream believes Venus is 4.6 Billion Years Old!
I guess we have a few possibilities.
* Ejecta-Rentension of atmosphere carried with body, since time of ejection. (can it survive the trip?)
* Volcanism, ie atmosphere coming from beneath the stratum. (is 5k years long enough?)
* Synthesis (which i guess i've defined here as, an electrical comet like process, with retention of the production of light-er molecules (H+ O-)). (is this even possible?)
* others? celestial in the sky 'great flood' type event, dumping gas/liquid on a planet?
My suggestion is, considering the wildly differing ages of MS vs EU of this body, are there other electrical processes available to EU, when we consider these ejected planets are themselves charged bodies on a wild trip.
Maybe some of these questions are beyond available evidence... i dunno... Volcanism and Ejecta-Retention seem to run into a couple of hurdles for me.

I'd be interested of how EU explains the dense atmosphere from above or other processes, or if it has been discussed before. or if conjecture exists.
