First off I want to apologize for the slow link. We looked into it, and discovered that the fiberoptic installation going on casused temporary line
noise casuing all kinds of delays. Hopefully we have that fixed.
I'll see if I can talk Bob into defending his own theory here, as it would be more cogent than I can represent.
I do know there is plenty of peer reviewed scientist that are questioning the lenght of time it would take for a magnetic reversal, and many factors
which in recording them geologically. A great visual, and solid science being done on what happens to the magnetic shield is found at Gary Glatzmaier
websites, as he is the leading computer modeler of the geomagnetic core and its impact. He is one voice among many that thinks the swap can occur very

The chaotic model has been published in many journels
And his theory is that the field may not actually collaspe but fails in spots as it shifts allowing a hugh influx of cosmic radiation to sweep
segments of the planet like the imagery of an aurora borealis does.
If it does takes thousands of years to complete a swap and settle back down, the obvious ramifications on organic life would not be subtle.
Maurice Cotterell also has a similar theory behind mutations, but more focused on Gamma Ray bursts from solar flares which can penetrate our intack
magnetic shield and atmosphere. He's not alone either in his theory.
