CHINA - Earth’s Rotation Reversing?

Arno Froese

The rotation of the Earth’s inner core may be reversing, moving to spin in the opposite direction, new research has shown. 

The results of a study, published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Geoscience, indicate that changes in the rotation of the inner core could take place over a scale of decades and could shed light on how the core influences the other layers of the Earth.

The study’s authors, Xiaodong Song and Yi Yang of China’s Peking University analyzed repeated seismic waves from the early 1990s showing that all of the paths that previously showed significant temporal changes have exhibited little change over the past decade, the study states.

Song and Yang said they found that the inner core’s rotation “came to a near halt around 2009 and then turned in an opposite direction.”

Prior to this study, there was not much evidence that what the inner core does has many effects on the planet’s inhabitants.  But the researchers said they believed there are physical links between all of Earth’s layers, from the inner core to the surface.

“This is a very careful study by excellent scientists putting in a lot of data,” said John Vidale, a seismologist at the University of Southern California.

“[But] none of the models explain all the data very well in my opinion,” he added. Vidale instead pointed to an older theory that claims the inner core only significantly moved between 2001 to 2013 and has stayed put since., 24 January 2023

Arno's Commentary

It is quite amazing to read of the various scientific experiments regarding planet earth. Opinions are endless.

When speaking of the earth, Isaiah 40:26 proclaims: “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.” By Creation, we recognize the Creator. The apostle Paul writes: “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
