TV's The Big Bang Theory, and Imanuel Velikovsky

Beyond the boundaries of established science an avalanche of exotic ideas compete for our attention. Experts tell us that these ideas should not be permitted to take up the time of working scientists, and for the most part they are surely correct. But what about the gems in the rubble pile? By what ground-rules might we bring extraordinary new possibilities to light?

TV's The Big Bang Theory, and Imanuel Velikovsky

This evening episode of The Big Bang Theory "The Procreation Calculation" (S1203), just after the main title sequence, seems to show Howard reading a copy of Charles Ginenthal's book, "Carl Sagan and Immanuel Velikovsky".

That must have been a subtle statement by someone involved in the production process. To those not familiar with the book, it is a harsh criticism of Sagan and of course, very pro Velikovsky.

Along the same lines, it reminds of a scene from the movie "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (1978) in which Donald Sutherland enters into a Mud Bath House and opens a door to find a man sitting in his mud bath reading a copy of "Worlds In Collision."
He says to Sutherland's character and I paraphrase....Worlds In Collision, must reading!
