MAVEN to Mars

• arclein
One way or another, scientists believe, Mars must have lost its most precious asset: its thick atmosphere of carbon dioxide. CO2 in Mars's atmosphere is a greenhouse gas, just as it is in our own atmosphere. A thick blanket of CO2 and other greenhouse gases would have provided the warmer temperatures and greater atmospheric pressure required to keep liquid water from freezing solid or boiling away.

Type in "Velikovski Archive" and you're there.  There's a lot more to it than Earth sucking the atmosphere off Mars, for instance, what caused them to get that close in the first place?  Spoken "tribal" histories referring to events "before there was a moon".  Alternate histories, to be sure, but he's got a lot of research to back it up.

Seems to me I read a book years ago that talked about Mars passing close to the earth about 3000 years ago. Earth sucked most of the atmosphere off it, and added it to earths own.
