Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.(Proverbs 27:17) ESV
Earth’s magnetic field and dipole moment are used as evidence that hell isn’t at the center of the Earth. They can also be used as evidence that hell IS at the center of the Earth. You choose what you believe.
Earth’s Magnetic Field
We know that iron is magnetic. Earth has a magnetic field. Therefore there must be a lot of iron in the core of the Earth. That may seem ridiculously basic but it’s simple deduction.
Not only does the Earth have a magnetic field but it also has an electric charge, known as a dipole moment. The relationship between magnetism, electric currents and movement is described by Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction.
Faraday’s law of induction (briefly, Faraday’s law) is a basic law of electromagnetism predicting how a magnetic field will interact with an electric circuit to produce an electromotive force (EMF)—a phenomenon known as electromagnetic induction. It is the fundamental operating principle of transformers, inductors, and many types of electrical motors, generators and solenoids.– Faraday’s law of induction (Wikipedia)
This principle is used in the development of electric motors, among other things. A simple motor consists of a coil of wire on a rotating shaft in a magnetic field. When electric current is applied the magnetic field causes the coil to spin. Using the same principle a dynamo uses the motion of the coil in a magnetic field to produce an electric charge.
In popular science (SciPop) this is the function of the liquid outer core, it is the motion part of the planet Earth dynamo (geodynamo). It’s not necessary if hell is at the center of the Earth.
- IF hell is a ball of molten radioactive slag with a high iron content,
- AND it’s rotating,
- THEN the Earth will have an electric charge (dipole moment).
You may want to ask: why is hell rotating? and of course we have an answer for that. It’s due to a phenomenon known as gravitational drag effect (GDE). Ironically, by having a universe with an absolute frame of reference and by resolving seismological data with the presence of hell at the center of the Earth we suddenly find ourselves with a unified field theory. You’re welcome.
Popular science (SciPop) doesn’t have hell or a great gulf in the interior of the Earth. Why not?
