Why the 11-March-2011 Earthquake/Tsunami was consistently a 11-March-2011 event.
Various | 12-March-2011 | Vanity

Posted on 03/12/2011 7:48:22 AM PST by topher

To look at the Earthquake time in other timezones, the USGS has the webpage:

8.9 Earthquake offshore Honshu, Japan on March 11, 2011

The earthquake occurred on March 10 in many timezones in much of the United States. Except it was a 11-March-2011 event for the East Coast (New York City, Miami, etc).

However, the tsunami hit the Pacific Coast of Washington, Oregon, and California on March 11.

In this first part of the 21st Century, there is another date of terror also on the 11th of the month.

This is 11-September-2001.

On a stranger note, there is a cult of Christians that believe that there is significance in the date 11-May-2011.

I recently saw a caravan of trucks with the message of "11-May-2011 Judgement is coming".

Apparently, there are Christians who believe that there is significance in that date.

I have not heard or seen much of this cult before now, and I am curious about them.

On a lighter note, maybe people should dread the 11th of the month, and not the 13th....

Maybe the old superstition of Friday the 13th is off the mark by a couple of days or something...

Friday the 13th comes from the Egyptians during Passover.

It was the 12th for Hebrews, (who start and end their days at sunset). But Friday the 13th for the Egyptians.

So, if you are a believer, Friday the 13th is a deliverence day.

Probably has something to do with the Gregorian Calendar and Rome, no doubt....

No, it comes from all the matriarchal societies that used lunar calendars.

I always thought that the Friday the 13th observance was related to the assassination of the Knights Templar.

Or was it 14th day for the Chosen People ?

So if they said 11-May-2011 what happens in the time zone where 11-May-2011 comes before those in the time zone where it ain’t?

I thought it was related to Judas as the 13th disciple.

In the Roman calendar, the Ides fall on the 13th in every month except 4 (March, May, July, October).

You have to admire the fearlessness of the Founding Fathers--they went ahead with the decision for independence despite the fact that the colonies were 13 in number. (They tried to get West Florida to join them but the British settlers there were loyalists.)

11-May-11 will be my 63rd birthday. I didn't realize that there would be such a fuss. A bottle of single malt (Macallan 18?) would suffice.

I did post this under weird for a reason...

I did find something about the cult of Christians on the Internet, but I don't know how large this group is...

According to one website, they believe the rapture will happen between May 11, 2011 and October 11, 2011. That was according to one website -- not what I believe.

I have also heard people talking about 2012 like it is going to be the end of the world...

I don't know what about that, but maybe it comes from Nostradamus and his predictions...

Speaking of such, 666 in base 7 math is 286 (base 10), which was the processor for the PC/AT...

All of these are coincidences...

Apparently Harold Camping is the one who is predicting the rapture in May, 2011. From what I read on the Internet, he originally predicted May 11, 2011, but then adjusted it to May 21, 2011 (as of today).

He graduated from University of California Berkeley (Civil Engineering). Maybe he still has ties there...

Here is his Wikipedia web page:

Well, except for that one...

Actually, it wasn't IBM that made the PC evil. That honor belongs to Mr. William Gates, Super-villain.

I don’t know about abortion, but Gates has donated hundreds of millions toward polio eradication.

The only thing about datesetting the Rapture is that ANY date given for the Rapture is not Scriptural. Not even Jesus Christ, nor the Adversary knows the day or hour, only the Father.

Oh, his evil doesn't stop with child sacrifice.

He is pro-UN supremacy, anti-2nd Amendment, and all around applied anti-capitalist bag of grief.

Not to mention he's retarded commercial software advancement by decades, costing hundreds of billions of dollars in unrealized profits.

Oh yeah, that's a very selfless contribution Gates is making. Not like he's heavily invested in Pharma.

He's also a Greenist.

Geez man, grow a cynicyst.

China Syndrome would be more appropriate reference -- if it were playing -- with the troubles with Japan Nukes.

It was first reported that Japanese Safety Officials said the explosion was a meltdown of a reactor. There appears to be some backpedaling from that statement now...

Article on Bill Gates:

BILL GATES’ PLANNED-PARENTHOOD-PRESIDENT DAD INSPIRED PRO-ABORT FUNDING

Info is based on PBS interview with Bill Gates -- both (PBS and Gates) of whom probably think Planned Parenthood is a great organization (taking our tax dollars -- PBS and Planned Parenthood).

You think that the polio vaccine is a money-maker for Big Pharma?

Sometimes, people you disagree with do good things, and they deserve to be recognized for it.

No, I think Big Pharma is a money-maker for Bill Gates.

Sometimes, people you disagree with do good things, and they deserve to be recognized for it.

And sometimes, self-serving narcissistic marketing is disguised as altruism, and deserves to be called out as such.
