Talk:Earth's magnetic field is decaying, indicating a young earth (Talk.Origins)
I have a quick question. Please tell me if my reasoning is right. I am not an expert in this subject.
1: The magnetic field would decay in only a few thousands years.
2: Magnetic reversals , according to old earth views, occur around every 50,000 to 200,000 years.
3: Thus, according to the old earth views, magnetic reversals don’t happen enough to “save” the magnetic field.
Don’t they have to squish all those reversals to about every 6,000? --Nlawrence 22:11, 20 February 2007 (EST)
