This Wikipedia entry was obviously pieced together by someone with an axe to grind. Thomas Barnes retired Professor Emeritus of the Physics Department, University of Texas, El Paso. He served there from 1938 until 1981. He published 35 papers in peer review journals and authored five books. His textbook, The Foundations of Electricity and Magnetism, is still in publication. Not only are these facts devoid in this entry, it also openly calls Professor Barnes' credentials into question. Thomas G. Barnes was an American creationist, who argued in support of his religious belief in a young earth with claims that the Earth's magnetic field was consistently decaying and that Einstein's theory of relativity was incorrect. He believed that his arguments were strong enough to cast into doubt the measured age of the Earth and timescales required for evolution, but only found support for his ideas among fellow creationists.
