THE EARTH'S MAGNETIC FIELD:
ITS ORIGIN AND DESTINY - Part II
Mr. Walsh will begin his address by examining recent research in the
creation framework concerning the origin of the magnetic field of the earth.
He will explore the latest investigation of this topic and examine such areas
as the creation of the earth's magnetic field, its apparent reversal, as well
as archeomagnetic and paleomagnetic data. He will show evidence for real decay
of the magnetic field.
Furthermore, he will examine evidence for the reversal of the magnetic
field's north and south poles, and show that the creation model is a more elegant
model for explaining and predicting such data. The earth's magnetic field is
an essential factor in determining the age of the earth. He will examine this
very important part of the creation model without cumbersome reliance on mathe-
matics which might cause difficulty for some of you in following the arguments.
The magnetic field of the earth has come to be one of many interesting and
controversial issues in determining the age of the earth. Creationists maintain
that the age of the earth, given its magnetic field, is much younger than often
claimed. This slide presentation also offers a possible history of the field.
Much thanks goes to Dr. D. Russell Humphreys of Sandia National Laboratories for
donating most of the presented material.
NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
I. Our February meeting will feature Mr. David P. Nelson, past president and
founder of CSF, on the topic of The Nature of Nature. Mr. Nelson will examine,
within a scientific framework, how nature works. Also how it forms a fundamental
diversity within a fundamental unity, a true UNI - VERSE.
II. Mr. Robert E. Walsh, CSF chairman, recorded four Origins programs at CTV,
WPCB/Ch 40 in December. You can view Origins on:
==>> Fridays 10:30 AM
==>> Saturdays 6:30 PM
==>> Wednesdays 10:30 PM
III. Now that the Christmas giving push is over, we are asking everyone to help
sustain the CSF by renewing (or in some cases beginning) your support of our
group. Please check your mailing label. If it says renew, then renew now. The
date listed is the last month that our records show you as paid up. Your
sponsorship is essential to us to fund printing and mailing costs.
IV. Henry Jackson, the Creation Science Fellowship secretary, has proposed that
the CSF begin the publishing of scientific papers. The idea is that we would
sponsor, one at a time, the publishing of quality papers that deal with all
aspects of Creation/Evolution. This would be similar to what we did in the ICC
Conference and proceedings, except on a smaller scale. Each paper would be a
high quality product. We would obtain prior funding for their publication. They
would be jured by both creation and evolution scientists.
