Earth’s Geo-Magnetic Field – by David Rives

Our planet is thought to contain a liquid iron core. But why is this significant? Earth’s Geo-Magnetic fields are believed to be produced by a liquid iron planetary core. The Geo-Magnetic field that surrounds the Earth enables our compasses to be used as a means of navigation, but more importantly, it acts as a deflection shield for dangerous phenomenon like the Solar wind and cosmic radiation. Bursts of radiation from the Sun have been known to knock out satellite communication, and can be particularly destructive to living organisms, so without this protective shield, our planet would become like Mercury, constantly swept with the solar wind, making it barren, desolate, and void of life.

There are times when small amounts of the charged solar particles enter the Earth’s atmosphere. These are observed through a colorful display known as the Aurora Borealis and Australis, the Northern and Southern Lights. Although the solar wind is not totally stopped by the Geo-Magnetic fields, it is held back at a safe distance and provides us with just one more example of the majesty of the heavens and the incredible design by our Creator.

Bible believing creationist makes accurate scientific prediction

Many people claim that creationists can’t be real scientists because we don’t make testable predictions. Well, that’s simply not true. Creationists start with the Biblical record which provides the framework for research and we can make testable predictions based off of that framework.

Planets other than Earth have magnetic fields too. One scientist, Dr. Russell Humphreys, who is a renowned physicist, (and also a Bible-believer) developed a theory to try and explain the strength of our magnetic field, as well as that of our neighboring planets.

Instead of assuming millions of years of history, he took the 6,000 years described in the Bible and made a testable prediction. Before we knew the strengths of the magnetic fields of Uranus and Neptune, he modeled and predicted how strong their magnetic fields would be, based on 6,000 years of decay.

When Voyager 2 travelled past these distant worlds and measured their magnetic fields… guess what? The evolutionary predictions based on a Big Bang timeframe were vastly off. However, it turned out that Dr. Humphrey’s research was nearly spot-on. Scientific validation of his prediction that he’d based on Biblical data. He had accurately predicted the magnetic fields of these planets before the space probes reached the planets.

Magnetic fields simply don’t last billions of years and scientific evidence in our solar system seems to be readily dispelling old-Universe cosmology.

Just one more scientific reason that you shouldn’t believe in evolutionary cosmology. It takes a LOT of faith.

Magnetic Fields in a Young Universe | David Rives and Dr. Russ Humphreys | Wonder Without Numbers DVD

The Bible says that “the Earth was formed out of water and by water.” How does this lineup with science? What can looking at the magnetic fields of planets tell us?

Dr. Humphreys received his Bachelor of Science degree in physics at Duke University, and his Ph.D from LSU. While working on his dissertation there, he committed his life to Christ, and based on Biblical and scientific evidence, concluded that the Creation account we read in the Bible is not only true, but scientifically accurate. He has received numerous awards for excellence in the field of nuclear physics, and at General Electric’s High Voltage Laboratory he served as a research scientist. Dr. Humphreys serves on the board of the Creation Research Society.

If stars are billions of light years away and the Earth has only been around for thousands of years, then how can we see the light from those distant stars?

  1. There are so many questions that cannot be answered if the unbelieving scientist are correct, it leaves everyone wondering how they can be so foolish!!?? And if those stars, as they say, are billions of light years away, how in heavens name can they even conclude that they are there? Boggels the mind!

  2. A really good article, thanks for sharing!

  3. GOOD presentation! (as always!)

    much has changed in understanding this topic from 50 years ago, when the earth was considered to be a little topsoil on one solid LUMP of rock!

    and the topic could EASILY and QUICKLY have been made over complicated by numbers!

    again – GOOD JOB!

  4. Dear David,
    It is so refreshing hearing from you the many scientists on your Science TV “Creation in the 21st Century” show all confirming a scientific proof of a created Universe.
    In college astronomy classes my professors presented Sir Fred Hoyle’s writings as our textbook; which basically posited that the entire universe is in a steady state, eternally existing, was neither created nor dissipating. This false teaching eliminates the possibility of there being a Creator God.

    Sadly I graduated College a disillusioned Christian.

    I was in awe of the great scientific minds and their Nobel awards and not wanting to be a “nuckle dragging trogdolyte myth believing Christian” I was slowly was drawn away from taking the Bible literally. (One of my Political Science professors actually verbalized his viewpoint publicly in class as his valid “scientific view point”)
    As Stalin said; repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”!
    Thank you for all you do. I am glad to report that in all my research I have never found one Inco travertable proof of Darwinian evolution or should we say “EVILution”!?
