STARTING WITH THE STRONGEST FIELD POSSIBLE AND THE
ESTIMATED DECAY RATE THE EARTH MUST BE YOUNG -- LIKELY LESS THAN 10000 YEARS OLD.
WHAT MAKES THE MAGNETIC FIELD? OLD EARTH FANS
SAY A DYNAMO CAUSES IT, YOUNG COSMOS FANS SAY IT'S THE DECAY OF A CIRCULATING ELECTICAL CURRENT.
Many of us had magnets as children - we remember they got weaker and weaker as time passed, until they
Earth's magnetic field is decaying, having lost about 10% of its intensity in the last
It is critical to Bible believing that the Bible's time frame of about
6000 years be approximately consistent with physical evidences.
There were efforts to sell the evolution idea before
Charles Darwin, but they failed, because people understood, from the Bible, that the world was about 6000 years
Then, in the early 1800s Charles Lyell, a British lawyer and naturalist writer succeeded in getting people to think
the world was much, much older.
Then when Charles Darwin published his evolutionary work in 1859, the skids were greased,
and evolution took off like wild fire.
People were duped into disbelieving the Bible in the area of
chronology,FIRST, THEN, disbelieving the Bible regarding creation!
is absolutely critical, nature and the Bible must match.
The Wikipedia article on Earth's Magnetic Field says the field is approximately a magnetic dipole similar to a bar magnet.
It states "The Earth's magnetic field strength was measured by Carl Friedrich Gauss in
1835 and has been repeatedly measured since then, showing a relative decay of about 10% over the last 150 years." This
article is worth reading.
D. Russell Humphreys, PhD says it is unlikely earth's
magnetic field is over 10,000 years old based on the maximum size it could have been originally, and the very rapid rate at
which it is decaying.
