What is the Electric Universe theory's explanation for the periodic reversals of the earth's poles? Do you accept the notion that there is an 11,000 year cycle which is now about to change, as raised at urban survival blog today?
So the short answer is, no, there is not any good reason to accept an 11,000 year cycle of magnetic pole reversals. That being said, reversals of the Earth's magnetic poles have taken place, and the proposed planetary catastrophes present a simple explanation of how that mechanism could work:If catastrophic changes to the solar system have occurred, then radio decay constants have changed. If the plasma discharge phenomena we call the thunderbolts of the gods actually flew between Earth and other planets, this too would have changed the radio decay constant (as well as the abundances of radioisotopes). In any case, the whole question of absolute dating must be re-evaluated from an electric universe point of view.

For some introductory reading on planetary electrical discharges as the cause of most of the major features found on terrestrial type planets and moons:A thunderbolt, on striking a magnet, reverses the poles of the magnet. The terrestrial globe is a huge magnet. A short circuit between it and another celestial body could result in the north and south magnetic poles of the earth exchanging places.

the earth's magnetic field is clearly a global phenomenon, requiring a planet-sized [or bigger] cause.
Hey, almost exactly 100,000 times as slow!
Solving for M, the Mass of the Earth, and using
a = 9.8 m/s2,
r = 6.38 × 106 m, and
G = 6.67 × 10-11 m3/(kg sec2)
M = ar2/G = 5.98 × 10 ^24 kg.
[ 6 x 10 ^24 ]
M = 4π2a3/GT2
Using this relation with T for the earth we get the Mass of the sun. The period of the Earth is 31,536,000 seconds and the distance from the Earth to the sun is 1.496 × 1011 m.
M = 4(3.14)2(1.496 × 1011 m)3/((6.7 × 10-11N·m2/kg2)(365*24*60*60 s)2)
The mass of the sun is thus 1.99 × 10 ^30 kg
[2 x 10 ^ 30 ]

From Science Daily September 2008:The main magnetic field, generated by turbulent currents within the deep mass of molten iron of the Earth's outer core, periodically flips its direction, such that a compass needle would point south rather than north. Such polarity reversals have occurred hundreds of times at irregular intervals throughout the planet's history – most recently about 780,000 years ago – but scientists are still trying to understand how and why.
The assumptions are: the Earth has a liquid iron interior. The Earth generates a magnetic field through a "dynamo" effect. The reversals have happened hundreds of times. The last time was almost a million years ago.
The Electric Universe theory is diametrically opposed to those assumptions.
Responding to an earlier point: there are two ways to flip a magnet's orientation.
1. Turn it over.
2. Hit it with a bolt of lightning.
While there may be debate over the chronology of the vases, there is evidence that a magnetic reversal(s) took place recently, within the memory of man.The position of the ancient vases during firing is known. They were fired in a standing position, as the flow of the glaze testifies. The magnetic inclination or the magnetic dip of the iron particles in the fired clay indicates which was the nearest magnetic pole, the south or the north.
