its interesting, and if true would be nice... but i am a little leery of russian scientists because in the soviet days it was official policy to lionize russian scientists and their theories even if they were wrong. for example, they refused to accept darwinian evolution for decades because a russian scientist named lysenko developed a competing theory based on acquired characteristics. thats probably the reason this theory was taken seriously by the russians in the first place. i also can't think of any reason western scientists would have to deny it if it were true (the oil companies supressing the info explanation seems weak to me). according to the wiki page its also been mainly discarded by the russians themselves these days. overall it just sounds like a conspiracy theory to me. *shrugs*
evidently i only come to ddo to avoid doing homework...

Do you know what the theory actually asserts?

I read a book a few years ago about an Amerian scientist who supports this theory. While I'm pretty uneducated on this stuff, I thought there were some compelling arguments for the plausability of this idea. I've thought about mentioning it on here before, but can't really remember jack from the book I read.
