Why does planet earth have a molten core? Scientists claim this is evidence of earth being a molten ball at one time which then started to cool off.
I do not believe that planet Earth was ever a molten ball of flame, or that it took billions of years to cool down. If that were so, then all the heavy elements like gold would have sunk to the bottom and the surface would be rich in light elements like lithium, but this is not the case.
Also, if earth was billions of years old, the mountains would probably have been eroded by now. Most land would be deep under water, and very little would be above water.
There is another theory proposed by Walt Brown. His theory is called the Hydroplate Theory and it says that there was no molten core when the earth was created.
The Hydroplate Theory states that earth used to have an underground reservoir of water. Due to a fissure in the earth's crust, this water started to come out. The fissure continued to grow and the pressurized underground water burst out like a giant plume. This explosion of high pressure water caused earth's plates to crack. Friction of the plates, as they moved away from the fissure, caused mountains, volcanoes and trenches.
Giant volcanoes came into being. The tectonic plates started to slide over the now molten magma. This generated even more heat. The generated heat melted part of the core.
Due to giant pressure, the center of the earth's core did remain solid. The solid iron core started to rotate freely inside the liquid magma and created a powerful magnetic field.
Therefore, there is now a solid iron ball in the middle of the molten core. The magnetic field created by this rotating iron core protects our earth from radiation. However, what if there was no magnetic field?
People need to know that this would allow more radiation to enter our atmosphere. A solar flare could then knock out our global power grid. Also, the solar wind would blow away Earth's atmosphere and there would be no air. It would be dry as a bone and similar to Mars.
In fact, Earth's magnetic field has decreased 10 percent over the past 150 years. Some even speculate that one day the magnetic field will collapse. This would leave us open to radiation coming from the solar wind. That explains the need for a molten core and a magnetic field.
God says that he created the heavens and the earth. It appears that at first the whole planet was covered with water.
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which [were] under the firmament from the waters which [were] above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
When God put part of the water in the seas and part of the water in the sky, He created a water canopy that shielded all life from radiation damage. People lived longer lives and probably were lighter skinned.
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry [land] appear: and it was so.
This is when dry land first appears. Before that there was no dry land. God needed dry land to plant the garden of Eden.
10 And God called the dry [land] Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that [it was] good.
When later on God decided to destroy all breathing animals from the top of the earth, he burst the earth crust releasing water from under the earth. It started to rain as never before and continued raining for days.Genesis 7:11
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened.
Noah's flood was a result of water from the deep coming up as a fountain. Much of it fell back to earth as rain. Some fell as snow and buried herds of animals while they were still eating. Huge glaciers did form as well as eroded canyons and silt deposition.
When later on, the tectonic plates started moving, one of Noah's descendants was called Peleg, because in his days the earth was divided.
Noah and his sons had a remembrance that the earth before the flood was one single continent standing out of the water--what the scientists call now Pangea.
