The earth’s magnetic field: evidence that the earth is young
March 1998; updated August 2014
In the 1970’s a well regarded electromagnetic expert, a physicist, and creationist professor, Dr. Thomas Barnes, based on measurements stated “archaeological measurements showed the earth’s magnetic field was 40% stronger in AD 1000.”
It, the magnetic field of the earth, is decreasing at a drastic rate. Too drastic to provide Dickey Dawkins (Dr. Richard Dawkins) his required (per EVOLUTIONIST “CHURCH” THEOLOGY and “faith”, a mere false religion … Richard is Religious) 40 Billion years for the strong wind to blow through the chemical stew and begin with a chance spontaneous biological cell to spontaneously construct, as more complex than the Saturn V Rocket i.e. the diversity of the species and its theorist theobiologian and dogma walker, author Charles Darwin.
Dr. Barnes, was the author of a well received electromagnetism textbook. He knew his stuff. Barnes calculated that the current could not have been decaying for more than 10,000 years, or else its original strength would have been large enough to melt the earth. So the earth must be younger than that.
Quoting Jonathan Sarfati on Dr. Humphries in agreement with Dr. Barnes:
“Later, Dr. Humphreys published ‘The Earth’s magnetic field is still losing energy’, CRSQ 39(1)1–11, March 2002, which explains the above and more in detail (see full article, and his Creation Matters layman’s summary—The Earth’s Magnetic Field: Closing a Loophole in the Case for its Youth, March/April 2002—both off site). The abstract of the CRSQ paper reads:
‘This paper [writes Dr Humphreys] closes a loophole in the case for a young earth based on the loss of energy from various parts of the earth’s magnetic field. Using ambiguous 1967 data, evolutionists [an amazing faith] had claimed that energy gains in minor (“non-dipole”) parts compensate for the energy loss from the main (“dipole”) part. However, nobody seems to have checked that claim with the newer, more accurate data. Using data from the International Geomagnetic Reference Field (IGRF) I show that from 1970-2000, the dipole part of the field steadily lost 235 ± 5 billion megajoules of energy [that’s lots] while the non-dipole part gained only 129 ± 8 billion megajoules. Over that 30-year period, the net loss of energy from all observable parts of the field was 1.41 ± 0.16 %. At that rate, the field would lose half it energy every 1465 ± 166 years. Combined with my 1990 theory explaining reversals of polarity [shifts of magnetic direction south pole to north pole and back again rapidly] during the Genesis Flood and intensity fluctuations after that, these new data support the creationist model: the field has rapidly and continuously lost energy ever since God created it about 6,000 years ago.'”
To my readers, the paper by Jonathan Sarfati goes into scientific detail fit for physicists, complete with bibliography. As a mechanical engineer (BSME) I understand basic knowledge in the area of electromagnetic theory. I have kept this post as simple as I can for laymen to follow, while humorously ridiculing Richard Dawkins who has told his young ignorant disciples of Ignorance to begin to ridicule apologists and Christians. In basic, the scientists have shown with respect to the earth’s electromagnetic field’s potential historic and potential future lifespan, based on hard physics realities i.e. observable measured data, the earth cannot be older than 10,000 years. Dr Humphreys in his most recent paper based on his doctoral level understanding and overall history and observed electromagnetic behavior (1970-200) states flatly “the field has rapidly and continuously lost energy ever since God created it about 6,000 years ago.”
Just like Genesis says. As my own exposition with respect to the word problems God has boasted (Daniel 12) he would reveal in the “time of the end” the scientific realities from hard physics prove the Bible correct in regard to times as God claims. God speaks in his own words and through what has been created, as Paul tells us.
The timeline of history and the math, in Misquoting Calculus, by Chris Queen (BSME) show 1 X 10^ − 8 (essentially zero) raw odds, that God did not write the Bible through prophets. He Did! The electromagnetic field proves the earth is less than 10,000 years old (stronger field, required for Billions of years, based on time and energy would have melted the earth) and the decay shows conclusively the earth will not be here after about 2,000 more years, because the solar radiation, which we are protected from by the swiftly decaying electromagnetic field, will destroy all life here in that aftermath. I am greatly comforted to know science confirms my reading of scripture and the arithmetic. Daniel 12: 3, 4: “The wise will understand . . . shine like the stars forever and lead many to righteousness . . . ” Seek Jesus, he is the Son of God.
A prophet named Peter at 2 Peter 3: 10-13:
“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.” (NIV)
Hey Bart, looks like this is actually the fisherman from Galilee, as the settled science reveals. I certainly offer more objective evidence than you do.
