Still a huge problem for evolutionists, but not for creationists
Earth’s Moon generates no magnetic field of its own today. But in the 1970’s, Apollo astronauts brought back rock samples of the Moon’s crust that showed they formed in a magnetic field stronger than the Earth’s magnetic field today.1 This has posed a huge problem for space scientists who want to believe the solar system is billions of years old. The ‘dynamo’ theory, their as-yet-unproven explanation of planetary magnetic fields, requires a large fluid core and rapid rotation in order to even have a chance of working … and the Moon provides neither. Hence there has been much scholarly worry over how the Moon could possibly have generated a magnetic field in the past, especially a strong one.
(1) A self-sustaining ‘dynamo’ (electric generator) exists in the Earth’s core.
(2) The Moon’s core emulated the alleged Earth-core dynamo, despite much less favorable conditions….
