"Their simulations suggest that the axis would only have flipped if Venus was spinning very quickly."

That was taken from the link you gave. This is the problem as I stated before in this post:

"The sun contains over 99% of the mass of our solar system, but only contains 2% of the solar systems angular momentum. So the planets contain
98% of the angular momentum, but only acount for less than 1% of the solar systems mass. The general theory is that the whole solar system was formed from a flattened disk of gas and dust. Thus the center of this disk (the sun eventually) would have the most angular momentum, and the outer edges (the planets) the least. But it is opposite now. How did the angular momentum get transfered from the center of the disk to the outside? There is no mechanism that we know of that could do this. I'm not sure the current theory of how our solar system came about is correct."

For the sun to have formed from a disk of gas, it would have to rotate rapidly. But now, it does the opposite. The planets rotate rapidly, while the sun rotates very slowly. . How did the angular momentum get transfered from the center of the disk to the outside? Like I said, I'm not sure the current theory of how our solar system came about is correct.
