This is perhaps the most interesting bit of news I have read in a long long time.
  • From 1 A.D. to 1800 there were approximately 28 major earthquakes recorded in history. This results in an average of one major earthquake approximately every 60 years.
  • From 1801-1900 there were approximately 31 earthquakes 7.0 or higher. This results in one major earthquake approximately every 3.2 years.
  • From 1901 to 2000 there were 222 major earthquakes 7.0 or higher. This results in an average of one major earthquake every 6 months.
  • From 2000 to 2003 there were approximately 59 earthquakes of 7.0 or higher. This results in approximately one major earthquake every 24 days.
This brings us to recent times. One of the most notable major earthquake was in Bam, Iran, on Dec. 26, 2003. Exactly one year later, Dec. 26, 2004, Sumatra, Indonesia, experienced another massive earthquake and a subsequent devastating tsunami. Between these two earthquakes, more than 330,000 lives were lost.
  • From 2004 to 2007, there were 56 major earthquakes 7.0 or higher. This results in an average of one major earthquake every 25 days.
  • In 2008, there were 12 major earthquakes 7.0 or higher. This results in an average of one major earthquake every 30 days.
  • In 2009, there were 17 major earthquakes 7.0 or higher. This results in an average of one major earthquake every 20 days.
  • In 2010, there were 22 major earthquakes 7.0 or higher. This results in an average of one major earthquake every 15 days.
I have no question that the scoffers will scoff at this information, but the numbers don't lie. In fact, based on the undeniable patterns, on March 4, six days before the earthquake in Japan, Pastor Cecil sent me the following e-mail:
Prediction: The longest amount of time last year that the earth went without a major (7.0 or greater) earthquake was 57 days. We haven't had a major earthquake since January 18th of this year. As of today, we stand at 45 days without a major quake. I am predicting a major (7.0 or greater) earthquake BEFORE Wednesday, March 17th. my prediction is that there will be a major earthquake sometime within the next week!

i wouldn't worry about it too much. they didn't have very good earthquake monitoring equipment prior to the 1900s, and a lot of earthquakes happen in areas of the world that are sparsely populated- places that would not have had earthquake monitoring equipment until the past 60 years or so.

what we're seeing is increasing frequency of major media coverage of earthquakes.

We didn't have any major media at all 2,000 years ago .. ..yet we know in explicit detail the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans by Titus in AD 70 TOO MANY EYE WITNESS' THAT WROTE ABOUT IT.

Have you ever read Flavius Josephus ? Every war the Jews ever fought is recorded in this masterpiece of Jewish Antiquities along with every earthquake!!

Your assertion that the news media is responsible is not valid one bit.

Socrates, Plato, Josephus hold far more credibility than todays; make up false facts for the public to read; IS NOW classified as NEWS.

the earth is fighting back against the assault -

earthquake tsunami and one of the most vulnerable places on earth = 4 nuclear plants in meltdown.

I am betting on mankind to do better...but hey that's just me.
