Electron degenerate matter? Wut? The pressure at the center of the earth isn't remotely that high. It's just a blob of iron, nickle and some radioactives doing the turny woo-woo due to being a liquid, initial rotational speed and some convective forces.

If there were electron degenerate matter at the center of the Earth very shortly thereafter there would be no more Earth.
