Does the Faraday rotation effect demonstrates that galaxies are in fact magnetised?
The Faraday rotation is a new physics explanation of how stars spin magnetically.  In classical physics the spin was assumed to have been created during the big bang but cosmological evidence is that individual galaxies may be formed out of a strongly magnetized environment having prior magnetic field strengths at least as large as in the ISM of `evolved' galaxy disks; according to researchers in the 1990's

Hmm, interesting thought, I would say similar but magnetised not being the correct term, I consider some sort of polarised charge of particles/matter.  Galaxies becoming equal in polarity hence expansion.

The Faraday effect is the rotation of the plane of polarisation of light as it passes through a magnetic field. In space, this is primarily thought to be due to the effect of free electrons on the light.

Please provide a link to the story that talks about the Faraday effect showing that galaxies are magnetised (in fact, please provide a ink to each news story that you mention, as the usual description in these posts is a bit too cryptic).
