Source of the Geomagnetic field

I’m re-posting this nicely written, concise piece of reasoning to introduce Louis Hissink’s Crazy World, which happens to be an electrical one. Well all of ours is, but he’s actually aware of it and quite thoughtful about it. There are many interesting, insightful articles at his site. Cheers, Louise!

Louis Hissink's Crazy World

Almost a century ago,or perhaps more than a century ago, science determined from the knowledge that the earth had a magnetic field that the only place it could have been generated was in the core via a dynamo mechanism. Science then did not know about the solar wind, electrified space plasma or the Van Allen belts. Science could not have explained it any other way. Science did not know about space electricity so the standard model then involved a simple radiating sun, and inert matter-less space in which were suspended planets all behaving according to the laws of motion described by Isaac Newton. Science knew about electric currents in wires and the generation of magnetic fields, but as science also was totally ignorant of space plasma, the earth-centred dynamo theory was the only plausible explanation possible.

Fast forward to 2014 and we now know about space plasma, the Van Allen…

    1. Copy that, science AS religion etcetera.

      Greatly enjoying your recent posts, very rich in visual content, without the interminable verbose textuality one becomes inured to when reading stuff purporting to address anything remotely significant to the knowledge base of the earths most successful parasite….

      …phew, glad to get that down on virtual paper.

      kind regards

  1. I like this article a lot apart from the suggestion the scientific mind is somehow separate from the religious mind, this implies a schism between knowledge and reason. On the one hand you have trust in a god who made the universe and on the other you have science who’s position is it made itself????
