"The magnetic field is decaying too rapidly to account for billions of years. (#C422)
Measurements indicate that the strength of the earth’s magnetic field have decreased by 14% since 1829. 1 Because it is decaying so rapidly, it points to a young earth, not an old one. 2
Evolutionist: The magnetic field has undergone a series of reversals, which explains why it is decaying so rapidly today. 3

- Sarfati, 1999, p. 113: “The earth’s magnetic field has been decaying so fast that it couldn’t be more than about 10,000 years old. Rapid reversals during the flood year and fluctuations shortly after just caused the field energy to drop even faster.” ↩
- Palmer, 2011, p. 47: “Previous computer simulations have successfully reproduced many of the features of Earth’s magnetism field (including the periodic reversals that seem to occur every few million years) based on a model in which convection takes place in column-like cells parallel to the axis of Earth’s rotation.” ↩
