This is worrisome:
I've seen this notice before.
Shake rattle and roll.
Could it be that earthquakes help to refill geological hydrocarbon reservoirs?
1) We’re doomed!
2) Global warming
3) Bush’s fault
You can post and flee at the same time? Now THAT is multitasking.
Wow! just wow.......
The creos that deny evolution can’t deny the geologic evolution...... the plates are definitively shown
Are Earthquakes Really on the Increase?
We continue to be asked by many people throughout the world if earthquakes are on the increase. Although it may seem that we are having more earthquakes, earthquakes of magnitude 7.0 or greater have remained fairly constant.
A partial explanation may lie in the fact that in the last twenty years, we have definitely had an increase in the number of earthquakes we have been able to locate each year. This is because of the tremendous increase in the number of seismograph stations in the world and the many improvements in global communications. In 1931, there were about 350 stations operating in the world; today, there are more than 8,000 stations and the data now comes in rapidly from these stations by electronic mail, internet and satellite. This increase in the number of stations and the more timely receipt of data has allowed us and other seismological centers to locate earthquakes more rapidly and to locate many small earthquakes which were undetected in earlier years. The NEIC now locates about 20,000 earthquakes each year or approximately 50 per day. Also, because of the improvements in communications and the increased interest in the environment and natural disasters, the public now learns about more earthquakes.
According to long-term records (since about 1900), we expect about 17 major earthquakes (7.0 - 7.9) and one great earthquake (8.0 or above) in any given year.
How many times are earthquakes mentioned in the book of Revelation?
How long have we had the ability to detect earthquakes at the level we can now?
catastophism is proof of Noah’s flood more than a grape seed becoming a mammal
Heck. I’ve even posted that we’re having an earthquake before the ground stopped shaking.
I dared put it in “breaking” and the Mod Squad nuked it.
What’s more breaking than an earthquake in progress????
Some shift moderators have a totally inexplicable definition of Breaking News.
There are millions of earthquakes all over the world every day.
It just seems lately they are in more populated areas abnd thus are reported more.
Windows virus ??
The nuclear capability of the mods.
>>You can post and flee at the same time?<<
Flosting. If you tweet it is flittering...
Modern seismography appears to date back to the mid-30s with the vertical seismograph devised by Lucien LaCoste, IINM.
Read Genesis. There have been several creations before the current Adamic creation we are part of. They were all destroyed.
I’ve heard there is talk about the “Pacific Rim” waking up.
2 quakes in Chili
1 just north of that in Panama
The fault line from the most recent L.A. quake is the same one that rattled San Diego (7.1) - but the quake was actually in Mexico just south of Calexico.
I hope it stays there because that fault is over 100 miles from me.
Is the earth in the process of dying ..??
We have sink holes all over the planet .. earthquakes and freak storms all over the planet.
Latest movies: Heaven is Real; God is Alive
Hmmmmmm ..?? Is God sending us a message ..??
That is incorrect, there was only 6 days of creation
6 literal days
You need to stop putting in fairy tales where the Bible says something specific
I’m on a Mac...
They have a lot on their plates
>>Is the earth in the process of dying ..??<<
It was dying the moment it was born.
Embrace the nothing.
There is a warning in the Bible, just trust in ->Him (Jesus)- and you’ll be alright.
Genesis only speaks of one creation. No more.
"I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red."
Watch the videos under the "Earthquake" heading.
Ditto that, Race.
Bert, creationists are quite friendly toward any science that can be supported by peer-reviewable observation. The “creationists are anti-science” stereotype is just a convenient mythology perpetuated by the anti-creationism crowd, a demonization tactic and no more. It’s in the gray area of speculative inferences, where observational data is much harder to come by, that the differences in worldview start to become noticeable.
Embrace the suck.
I LOVE the search term you used...
Damn, just planted part of my garden ... well maybe it will only hit the un-planted part.
I am one of those folks that carries a feeling of yeah, we’re doomed around with me. That said, I just wonder if the nah, no more earthquakes than usual, move on articles aren’t to reassure the masses. Besides, what would the masses due if a great earthquake was coming - leave the planet? LOL.
The Bible talks about birthpangs - earthquakes and other natural phenomena increasing. I also did a casual look at earthquakes a few years back (I work in insurance and had thought they were increasing) and the numbers have increased in the last maybe 15 years or so based on my very unscientific analysis - but not by a lot.
Too many tremors, pulled and pushed around
Too many tremors and too many shakes ...
On January 19, 2014 the “2.5+ in the past 7 days” count hit 590. It is currently at 371. So we have a way to go to get back to the high for this calendar year.
Don’t we have a blood moon coming up pretty quickly?
Yes.....Passover,,,,,,,15 April 2014.
If your grandmother’s funeral urn falls off the fireplace mantle because of a quake, you can put it in Breaking News.
We are domed!
This is my favorite link (and settings) to monitor earthquakes.
Trust me. It works and gives all earthquakes worldwide within the past 24hrs.
