But you didn't say why.

This is essentially the problem IAC has difficulty understanding.
I have no need to google this - I know this already. My point, which you missed completely, is that it is impossible to record a "magnetic flip" in one discrete eruption event, which is what you said. I was merely trying to get you to clarify that point.
The "days to cool" implies a single lava horizon as several horizons can't cool in one day (they would appear as one). So what you are saying is complete and utter rubbish - otherwise known as "making it up". Now, and I will say this very simply, if lava only took days to cool, it must be a single eruption. If you recorded a reversal event and are asserting that the reversal "took days", then the reversal must have been recorded in that one event. How you managed to record on this level of detail astounds me. God must've been guiding you.
I smell the droppings of a male bovine.
It flipped during the time it takes to cool a layer of lava, days.
Last time I will explain to you.
What is recorded in the rock:
The flow of the magntosphere. Ie, the direction the magnetic current was going at the time of the formation of the rock.
Lets say a volcano errupts on Island X. It spurts lava and this cools down quickly. At the time of the formation the earths/rocks magnetic flow is going from A---->B
150 000 years later the same volcano errupts, except this time the pole did a flip a couple of thousand years back and when the lava cools, the magnetic flow is now in the opposite direction, ie. B------>A
Now we cut out a piece of that rock, and we can see at two different depths, the magnetic flow faced two different directions at two completely different time periods.
Thats how we know the magnetosphere flips, from the different directions in the different layers at different times. Not two different directions at the same time.
Uh, it's lava rocks near the midoceanic ridges, you "knew that" too, right?
Lava isn't sedimentary.
You fellas have some reading to do.
"Lava isn't sedimentary," how'd you figure that out?
I'm just correcting your mistake.
You need to read the entire exchange.
It did not.
Then why are the magnetic minerals oriented in differing directions in lava rocks?
Are those real days or biblical "days"?
You mean like Happy Days?
IAC has jumped the shark.
Better than the shark jumping me.
More like hes' flipped his lid.
The Bible is clearly false.
