Ok. The reason I lashed you that hard is your choice of words made it sound like you were stating it as fact, rather than theory.
Regarding historical earthquakes.. it is not uncommon for people to reference on event by another.. 'i.e. shortly after the eclipse'. 'shortly' being relative. I do it with my friends all the time. 'Just a few days ago...' then someone will point out that it was a month.
*old* historical dates are often very 'general'. Eclipses used to be major events for people so it was natural they would relate other signficant occurance to the timing of them (mayan's, etc)
