Yeah, all we can do is to wait and see...
All of the facts you presented are seriously some pretty scary stuff. I'm hoping for a fact that the world isn't going to come for an end, as I'm probably going to have some nightmeres about this considering it's 2AM in the morning and I haven't gotten sleep yet.
You have a good point, but most of those other dooms-day predictions were religious. Now, it is based on multiple scenarios of facts and evidence. The facts do seem logical.As a Christian my answer is simply I don't know.
If God decides to end the world it'll end. If He decides not to it wont.
Chances are that all of those predictions are false. Think of all the predictions we've had about the end of the world. And how many of them have occurred?
from http://curious.astro.cornell.edu/question.php?number=523One effect that may occur during a magnetic reversal is that the Earth may not be protected from charged particles streaming from the sun. These particles are called the solar wind, and could be dangerous to life if they reached the Earth's surface. However, the interaction between the magnetic field and these particles deflects them around the Earth. The area around a planet (including Earth) within which the motion of charged particles is affected by the magnetic field is called the magnetosphere. Sometimes the magnetosphere becomes overloaded with particles. When this happens, some particles escape through the magnetosphere and interact with atoms in the upper atmosphere, making them emit light. This is what creates the northern lights (aurora borealis) and the southern lights (aurora australis). If the Earth's magnetic field is weakened during a reversal, more of these particles will get through to the upper atmosphere. This could be a problem, but most likely the atmosphere is thick enough to protect the Earth's surface.
