Scientists say that the following passages from Mike's books are poppycock, balderdash and codswallop:
"Many of the planet's orbits, which ... should be perfectly circular by now, are highly elliptical. In fact, Mars's orbit is so eccentric that its distance from Earth goes from 34 million miles at its closest to 249 million miles at its greatest." -- The Choice, p.34Mike's going to need to wait a long time before either of those catastrophically wrong ideas becomes self-evident, or even merely evident. As for "truth," forget it Mike.
"[T]he clouds are the highest in the atmosphere, meaning that they are reflecting more light back to the camera and at a faster rate. Since they are returning more light, the clouds are the lightest. The surface areas ... are darker, because they are a bit further away from the camera than the clouds and therefore the light has to travel further before it is reflected back. The deep blue oceans are therefore the darkest, because the light has to travel all the way to the ocean floor before it is reflected back to the camera."-- Mike writing about images of Earth from space, Ancient Aliens on the Moon p.125
