Etchy333: The sun went down below the horizon a few hours ago. I don't want to alarm anyone, but it may never come back.
phrawgh: Enjoy your gay marriage and forced abortions of white Christian babies under Obamascare. It will all be over soon but many of you will suffer forever.Revelation 6:14 - "Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place."The cosmic disturbances and the great earthquake are clearly tied together. John tells us "every mountain and island was moved out of its place" in the great earthquake. Isaiah indicates this great earthquake that shakes the foundations of the earth has to do with "open windows." During this earth shaking event, people will hear a fearful "noise":Isaiah 24:1, 18-20 - Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty and makes it waste, Distorts its surface And scatters abroad its inhabitants.... And it shall be That he who flees from the noise of the fear Shall fall into the pit, And he who comes up from the midst of the pit Shall be caught in the snare; For the windows from on high are open, And the foundations of the earth are shaken. The earth is violently broken, The earth is split open, The earth is shaken exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, And shall totter like a hut; Its transgression shall be heavy upon it, And it will fall, and not rise again.Interestingly, fluctuations in the earth's magnetic field have been observed before earthquakes occurThe following is a hypothesis on what might occur in a magnetic pole reverse:In popular literature, many conjectures have been suggested involving very rapid polar shift. A slow shift in the poles would display the most minor alterations and no destruction. A more dramatic view assumes more rapid changes, with dramatic alterations of geography and localized areas of destruction due to earthquakes and tsunamis.Genesis 7:11 - In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were o ...
xria: So the question is, how are immigrants to blame for it?
t3knomanser: THE GREAT NAME: Clearly the effect of a few decades with virtually no magnetic field to protect our technology is a much bigger dealFirst, this process is not a "few decades" long. It's thousands of years. Second, There is no evidence that the Earth will be without a magnetic field for this period of time- to the contrary, our best evidence indicates that the Earth's magnetosphere remains roughly the same.This isn't a matter of talking anything "down". There's no evidence that indicates any sort of alarm is necessary or helpful here. Further, unlike climate change, there is literally nothing we can do. The biggest vulnerability to solar radiation is the power grid, and it is impossible to harden it sufficiently to operate without the Earth's magnetosphere for protection. Further, since there's no evidence that it will be called upon to do so, it's foolish to seriously consider it anyway.What we do know is that the weakened field allows solar radiation to reach the upper atmosphere. We know this because of radioisotopes gathered from 40,000 year old ice cores (the same ice cores that allow us to measure the relative quantity of CO2 in the atmosphere). We know that there's no correlation between mass extinction cycles and geomagnetic reversals, implying that there's no organic danger due to radiation. We know that geomagnetic activity is chaotic and seemingly random (it is emphatically not periodic, and it's wrong to say we're "overdue" for a reversal). We know that the process is usually slow, but it can sometimes happen very quickly- the 40,000 year old Laschamp event happened over the course of less that 500 years. The Cretaceous Superchron lasted 10 million years.
RobSeace: Twinkles: It's all a conspiracy by the map-printing industry to get us all to buy new maps with Australia in the northern hemisphere![www.affordablehousinginstitute.org image 600x425]
hardinparamedic: Given that this is being reported by the Daily Mail, a scientific journal of HIGH REPUTE, I don't see any reason to doubt this. Let the panic begin!
Smirky the Wonder Chimp: I guess it's a slow news day over at Mail Online, since the future pole flip has been known about for quite a few decades now, there wasn't much reason to panic twenty years ago, and there really isn't much to panic about now, either.There again, judging by the nekkid buttock pics on the sidebar of the TFA,
Twinkles: It's all a conspiracy by the map-printing industry to get us all to buy new maps with Australia in the northern hemisphere!
m1ke: There is no magnetic field, only Zuul.
Just_a_Bear: what is wrong with you people??THANKS, OBAMA!
THE GREAT NAME: tommyl66: THE GREAT NAME: How the climate-change obsessed libs on Fark respond to a genuine threat of natural disaster (which can't be attributed to evil capitalism):[3.bp.blogspot.com image 750x600]Plus mentioning the "Daily Fail" because nothing says rational and balanced like shooting the messenger in lieu of debating the message.But that does nothing to explain when the dinosaurs time and the cosmic rays DID come down, the only way out was figuring why the smaller ones AND the bigger ones, too. Science, that's why.At last, someone who really gets it.
t3knomanser: THE GREAT NAME: that tl;dr overreaction speaks volumes, I'd say.God forbid we discuss SCIENCE. Personally, I think this whole thing is awesome, and it's exciting to think that I might see the start of a pole reversal in my lifetime. This pants-wetting freak-out garbage is just sad. This is exciting, and we don't need the Daily Fail raining on our parade!
Slypork: It's a conspiracy created by the compass industry that was losing business. Now everyone will have to buy new compassess since the old ones will point the wrong way.
Hollie Maea: I've been assured that this already happened 9 years ago.[thishollowearth.files.wordpress.com image 318x414]
Smoking GNU: The magnetosphere isn't collapsing, it's loosing integrity to a small degree as it moved towards a probable pole shift. Magnetic iron deposits show that this is a somewhat regular occurrence and that the magnetic field weakens before such an occurrence.
fredbox: Not to worry anyone or anything, but they had to renumber the runways in Anchorage awhile back due to magnetic drift.
