Um...Betsey, contrary to the popular Sunday School or Television movies about Noah you may have heard/seen, the Bible NEVER mentions anything about Noah issuing any dire or continuous warnings to anyone. All we are told is that god found the guy unpolluted with the evil around him and as a result, god gave him inside information - end of story.

Keep it nice, folks, or the thread gets closed.

That means that with the very next rude, insulting, mocking, or otherwise flaming post, the thread will be locked.

I'm actually more worried about Iran/N. Korea and the M.E. and such, and the nuclear capabilities/war games which we seem to be mostly ignoring here in the usa.And our treatment or Israel.
The games are practice for a much larger event, IMO,and a nuke attack is probably imminent,either on Israel,the USA or both.I just hope we're prepared!JMO and I don't care to debate..thanks.

My comment is based on rational thinking.Increased communication results in increased awareness of worldwide events.Increased technology results in better seismic equipment to detect quakes that years ago would not have been even known about.The two combined make for more frequent reporting of earthquakes.

Simple as that.

We've had a good handle on seismic activity for several decades. That data says we have actually seen a decrease in the last several years. When the scientists say 'normal' they are not comparing to data no one knows, as that would be impossible. The are comparing to decades of known data.

Here's the problem with end-timers though: If activity goes down then it's the lull before the storm. If it goes up then it's the end of the world.

Whatever happens it confirms a presupposition in the minds of those who believe that (no matter what) the earth is going to vibrate itself to death (and soon).

Our generation fits these scriptures. Earthquakes are just one sign.

There are people who pray and make wishes to others -- some gotten into a habit of doing this when disasters strike ... aren't you concerned about these people?
