One thing I don't understand is this:
When the polarity shift on the sun happens, it happens rapidly.
The official theory of how the polarity shift on Earth happens, is that it happens slowly over many years.
There seems to be a disconnect here. Since I am too busy to do research on this, I'll throw the question out here.
If the sun can switch from today to tomorrow, why not the earth?
The sun is not a solid ball, but rather like a fluid. It exhibits differential rotation, meaning the surface moves at different speeds depending on latitude. This results in the magnetic field lines getting wound up. When the winding gets extreme, the magnetic field lines "snap," causing solar flares at those locations on the surface.
