Magnetic Universe Theories

There are close to 3,000 posts in the "Electric universe theories here" thread.

Do we need one for Magnetic Universe Theories?

I'll start:
How magnetism could help explain Earths formation?

Maybe we can combine "Magnetic Universe Theories" with "Electric Universe Theories"?

If only there was a fundamental force of nature that combined both electricity and magnetism.

You mean Maxwell just doesn't make coffee?

I've been following the Electric Universe thread in a very dilettante way and continue to be somewhat confused as to what the EU theories are.

I thought by separating the fields we might make progress.

Confused, you say. Not to worry, you are certainly no more confused than the EU proponents.

You're confused by the idea that electricity exists in space and actually does something?

No. Are you?

How about a theory (or two)?
