Just recently several studies have been released that show that the Earth’s magnetic field, the Van Allen Belt, is decreasing and has been so for longer than studies have been carried on. Since the 1870’s there have been regular measurements of the strength of the magnetic field.
What do the studies show?
The findings show a consistent and continual decrease in the strength of the magnetic field. There are some bad ramifications for the continuation of life on Earth if that decay continues. The magnetic belt is the main shield of ultraviolet rays coming from the sun to the Earth. The magnetic field acts as a deflector of most of the ultraviolet rays that would hit the Earth if the field were not there.
If the magnetic shield were not there it would take only one major solar flare eruption that reached the Earth to wipe out all life on the Earth.
As we study the area of space travel we must consider allowing for protection of the ships and colonies which may be established on other planets or moons of planets. So far, Earth is the only planet which has a magnetic shield sufficient to protect living things from the deadly rays produced by the sun.
How this affects the theory of evolution
You have probably been taught from your childhood up that the Earth, the solar system and the galaxies are billions of years old. Secular humanist scientists say that life arose on Earth around 4 billion years ago. We hear the word billion and even trillion so much these days that we are seldom phased by it. Let’s build a trillion.
- Let’s start with 10
- 10 x 100= 1000
- 1000 x 1000= 1,000,000(one million)
- 1000 x 1,000,000 = 1,000,000,000(one billion)
- 14 x 1,000,000,000 = 14 billion, which secular scientists say the age of the universe is.
Considering that the normal average age of a human being in the 21st century is around 70 years, there is really no way that we can comprehend such a time span. Do you think that this may be one reason that secular scientists want to use such incomprehensible numbers? If you can not conceive it, just trust the scientist. Surely, he will tell the truth.
By leading us into the land of non-comprehension the scientist can now lead us wherever he may wish. This path is usually down the path of The Big Bang and life evolving from non-living matter. It is on this path that he will spin such wonderful “fairy tales” of how matter came into existence and how magically the elements by blind chance combined at just the right ratios at just the right time at just the right conditions to bring about a living cell. The cell was so robust that it was able to survive a totally hostile environment to a point that it was able to reproduce itself. It continued the process and grew more complex with each following generation.
What a compelling story!
The fairy tale of life on Earth relies very much on the electro magnetic field that shields the Earth. That is one of the conditions that had to be just right. Not enough shield and the ultraviolet rays end life before it begins. Too much shield and not enough of the energy producing rays get through to provide energy for the food for the cell. Though this is just one of about twenty things that must be set to within a narrow percentage, it is totally necessary.
What has been discovered over the past 150 years is that the magnetic shield is decreasing. The secular millions and billions of years scientists are saying that the magnetic field is in the process of reversing its polarity. They blithely step over the fact that if anything like that ever happened that every living thing would be killed. Why? Because there would be absolutely no protection from the destructive ultraviolet waves emitted by the sun. Evolution would have to start all over again. Believe it or not, some, so-called scientists actually believe that this has happened before. By so believing they complicate the fairy tale of evolution even more.
If we were to use the evolutionist’s tool of uniformitarianism and walk the decrease in magnetic strength backward, we would find that in just a matter of 20,000 years its strength would be such that atoms could not be combined to form elements and there would be no possible way for life to even come about. So, if that is true, and it is more logical than the fairy tales of the secular scientist, then the Earth probably is no more than 6,000 to 8,000 years old.
It seems that real science has once again pulled the mask off of the pseudo-scientists of evolution and the big bang.
What does science tell us?
Science does not itself tell us anything. Science is a concept built by human beings who use it to support the living things of the Earth. If science does not tell us anything, then what is its purpose? Science actually means knowledge, or the search for knowledge. So, why do we search for knowledge?
We search for knowledge because we are created to seek for it. The evolutionist does not believe that this universe and all that is in it was created. He believes it is all one big accident and everything in it has come about by chance. As one writer puts it, “Stuff happens”. Why does he believe this? He believes it because he is in rebellion against the Creator. How do we know this? There is a history book called The Bible, which has recorded the events that put all mankind and all creation toward rebellion and destruction. Ever since that event, the nature of all humans is to rebel against The Creator. So, many secular scientists refuse to acknowledge The Creator and therefore must fabricate some other means by which we see the universe we inhabit. Because they are in rebellion they will not seek the true knowledge and therefore they must make up their fairy tales.
Those who by grace and faith receive the truth of the Creator understand that in the beginning, in a perfect world, the Creator said, “Be fruitful and multiply, fill the Earth and subdue it; have dominion over it.” The King James rendering does not come across today as it did when translated, but God commanded man to learn of this beautiful and wondrous creation and to make it even more so.
True scientists will learn through the eyes of the Creator. That is why we want to learn.
Earth’s magnetic field
Though it is only one aspect of life on Earth, it is necessary. Follow after your Creator and learn about it and all life.
God bless you on your wonderful adventure.
