Well, if you watch the video - and I'm certain you're too close-minded to do so - that I posted above and which he uploaded on May 21, you'll see he uses some sort of number theory to determine patterns of large earthquakes. I'll admit that I don't quite follow it but in the video uploaded May 21 he makes reference to the pattern indicating an earthquake 8.0+ on May 28. No mention of location. I never watched the other video, but he may have made the "prediction" to "advertise," which is a bit disingenuous I'll agree. Anyway, you'll say, well, earthquake didn't happen on May 28, and although initially it was 8.5 it was "downgraded" (for some reason) to just under 8.0. Well, in the video some of the historic earthquakes that he uses to determine the pattern are "off" by a day or so, so the fact that this one was a day or so "off" by a day or so is to an issue. Sorry, but on a global or astronomical scale "patterns" never precise down to the second (to the best of my knowledge). In short he used some sort of "number theory" to recognize a pattern and used this to determine the likelihood of another major earthquake, and appears to have been quite accurate in making that "prediction".

I'm assuming that everyone's watched the video and realized that there is actually some sort of theory behind the prediction.

We have an undersea volcano erupting there. If you wait another 200,000 years or so, we will have a new island off the coast. Earthquakes happen there several times a day. That's what erupting volcanoes do.

(As I live in the Denver area, I think it was the "DIA conspiracy" that first got me hooked, and if you know anything about that, it is easy to see why that led to one thing after another!) Finally, though, I came to my senses, and I now visit those sites only for entertainment -- and only when I am completely bored!

So, anyway, there is now a YouTube video about a possible MASSIVE earthquake to occur on the west coast of the U.S. today at about 4:00 p.m., California time, due to certain and specific planetary alignment, and the creator of the video said this also corresponds exactly to one of Nostradamus's quatrains about an earthquake occurring in May under those exact same planetary conditions. This video is titled Global Coastal Event on May 28, 2015, and it has couple of links with data to support his conclusions. Many otherYoutubers are quoting him and appear to be taking this video quite seriously.

So, okay, one more "crazy" predicting the end of the world as we know it, right? (Big yawn.)

Well, there is also a well-known story, supposedly true (but possibly fictional) about a teenage boy, Joe Brandt, who hit his head in 1937 and had a series of dreams about a big earthquake in California (as well as other earthquakes and tsunamis in other parts of the world, including a big quake in Japan, and also volcanic eruptions in South America, all occurring all about the same time, within a day or a few days of the California quake) -- and these events were to take place at some time in the future where some women wore very short skirts and some men actually wore earrings! In Joe Brandt's dream, the California earthquakes started at a few minutes before 4:00 p.m., California time, on a sunny day that seemed to be in the spring. (You can find both the transcript and also a Youtube video, if you look.)

The really crazy part?? -- well, in the Youtube video Global Coastal Event on May 28, 2015, the man who made the video says that the earthquake will hit today at about 4:00 p.m., California time, the exact time as Joe Brandt "saw" in his dream!! (And, btw, today's forecast for Los Angeles is 75 degrees and sunny.)

Well, all I can say is that if it doesn't happen, I am going to have one HUGE and very well-deserved laugh at myself for even posting this thread!

Why would I care about someone's "number theory" if it doesn't work? Theories are like a-holes, everyone has one and they all stink. In this case the prediction was for an earthquake 8.0 or higher on the West Coast, and I would certainly have accepted 7.9 or even 7.8 as being close enough .... but in fact there was nothing even remotely close to 8.0 on the entire North American continent, much less coastal Southern California.

I'm very open-minded, but not so much that my brains are spilling out.

But even if he had a "theory" Hoogenbeets still isn't acting like a person who has a theory. If he had a theory he would do this:

1. say I was wrong.
2. Try to review my data and methods to not be wrong again.
3. use [2] to make another prediction that might be right.

He hasn't done that. He isn't in the land of theory. He's probably a viral marketer for San Andreas. Or he is loopy. There would be no shame in doing 1-3. Every great theorist in anything has had to say that they were wrong.

I'm aware of that. But in light of what's happened recently, it could be a lead up to something quite serious.

If you think there's no need to worry, that nothing in your area will happen in the near future...

I don't recall him saying anything in the May 21 video about a specific location.
