And I have had my share of crazy theory's, Venus is earth from an alternate future catapulted back by the living spirit of the planet to avoid its destruction in the outer layers of the then expanding sun, its' smaller size due to it being baked and much of it's material, especially the majority of it's hydrogen lost in atmospheric evaporation under the heat so that when it entered this alternate past it became venus with, the only other planet that is nearly earths twin but has only two continent's, it's ocean's evaproated and molecularly seperated so that water no longer exists except as a component of the sulphuric acid that always rains there but never touches the ground and with a surface pressure somewhat like the bottom of the mariana trench, so hot that lead runs liquid and the rock's glow with the sun rising in the west and setting in the east, six month long days and night's, of course I was thinking of that as part of a scientific fiction story I was going to write but what if?.
It's closer orbit due to long term 4.5 billion years in the future before the displacement into an alternative past due to orbital decay caused by solar and other particles causing slow friction and reducing the orbital momentum of the plent over that time period.
