A Young Magnetic Field?

10 Best Evidences for a Young Earth

This is Ken Ham, on a mission to call the church back to the authority of God’s Word.


Our planet is surrounded by a magnetic field to protect us from the sun’s harmful radiation. It’s so important that life couldn’t exist without it. But this field is wearing down—and it’s wearing down so fast that if it were even millions of years old, it wouldn’t exist today!

Evolutionists have suggested there’s a process that we don’t fully understand that sustains our magnetic field. But no such process has ever been observed. It’s what’s called a “rescuing device” to save the idea of millions of years.

But our decaying magnetic field isn’t a problem when we start with God’s Word. It’s just a few thousand years old, created by God in the beginning.
