Evidence for Sumatra 9.0 Quake Leans towards Meteorite Strike

By: Sorcha Faal

As more scientific information begins to become available relating to the events surrounding the 9.0 earthquake off of the Northern Coast of Sumatra on December 26th, it is being reported that the depth was 10km. More importantly perhaps are the growing signs surrounding this event that rather than being caused by internal earth dynamics, as is being widely reported, it was instead caused by an extraterrestrial event, a meteorite strike into the ocean having come from the Southern Hemispheric skies.

Australian researcher Professor Ted Bryant had previously warned about just such an event happening in his book, Tsunami - The Underrated Hazard. He also ‘backed up his dire warning’ with a time and a date: 8pm on February 22, 1491, when a meteorite strike caused tsunami waves in excess of 130 meters high.

Further research for the Australian Spaceguard Survey by Michael Paine, and titled “Tsunami from Asteroid/Comet Impacts”, shows that an asteroid having a diameter of 2 km would be equal to 1,000,000 MT. Mr. Paine states, “When an asteroid hits the ocean at 70 000km/h there is a gigantic explosion. The asteroid and water vaporize and leave a huge crater - typically 20 times the diameter of the asteroid (that is, a 100m asteroid will create a 2 kilometre diameter crater). The water rushes back in, overshoots to create a mountain of water at the middle and this spreads out as a massive wave - a tsunami. The centre of the "crater" oscillates up and down several times and a series of waves radiate out.”

Lending credence to the suspicions of a meteorite strike causing this event have been a number of world reports relating to fireballs, mysterious lights in the sky around the world and exploding meteorites turning ‘night into day’ in both Indonesia and China over these past few weeks.

Coinciding with these events was the December 22nd report that scientists had identified a small asteroid ‘after’ it had passed earth orbit, “below the orbits of some satellites” and with no prior warnings as to its passage.

Of course these anecdotal events in and of themselves do not constitute proof of a meteorite strike but they do provide further evidence leading to an ever growing concern as to the mysterious events occurring in the solar system below our Southern Hemispheric skies. There seems to be coming soon a determination based upon human common sense that these numerous events are indeed interconnected and inseparable form one another.

Against this ‘common sense’ however we have a most detailed scientific research paper prepared by: Mike Sandiford, University of Melbourne; David Coblentz, Los Alamos National Laboratory; and Wouter Pieter Schellart, Australian National University, and titled, "Evaluating slab-plate coupling in the Indo-Australian plate", and wherein they state: “The distributed seismicity in the central Indian Ocean is unique, inasmuch as this is the only part of the old ocean lithosphere accumulating strain at an appreciable rate, and suggests that the Indo-Australian plate is in the process of fragmenting into separate Indian, Australian, and Capricorn plates.”

Supporting their research is the theory of plate tectonics. The theory of plate tectonics (meaning "plate structure") was developed in the 1960's. This theory explains the movement of the Earth's plates and also explains the cause of earthquakes, volcanoes, oceanic trenches, mountain range formation, and many other geologic phenomenon. The plates are moving at a speed that has been estimated at 1 to 10 cm per year. Most of the Earth's seismic activity (volcanoes and earthquakes) occurs at the plate boundaries as they interact.

Not well known in the West however is that there are multiple numbers of other theories in contention with plate tectonics, and to which none, including plate tectonics, have ever been proven. Independent Australian researcher Rob Kanen, the author of “Plate Tectonics and The Expanding Earth - A Discounted Theory”, states: “Criticism can be fired at all the theories expounded to explain the mechanism of plate tectonics.”

David Pratt, author of the research paper titled, “Plate Tectonics: A Paradigm Under Threat”, and published in the Journal of Scientific Exploration, states: “Plate tectonics -- the reigning paradigm in the earth sciences -- faces some very severe and apparently fatal problems. Far from being a simple, elegant, all-embracing global theory, it is confronted with a multitude of observational anomalies, and has had to be patched up with a complex variety of ad-hoc modifications and auxiliary hypotheses.”

It must be mentioned that where once Western institutions of higher learning were beacons to the world, and in fact fueled scientific thought for hundreds of years, we now find (sadly) that they have now become virtual prisons of dogmatic thought that counters no opposition to their sacred theories, no matter how flawed or without scientific basis. This is directly related to their inability to view life as being in a co-dependant relationship instead of their cherished view of separatism.

What ever theory is closest to being correct though, and whatever geological explanations the Western scientific community will offer about this event, yet to be explained to the public are how the great oceanic waves associated with this event, and the major killer of life, are more similar to a meteorite hitting the ocean than to a sub induction event of a ‘theorized’ continental plate.

As stated by Dr. J. Falnes, Department of Physics, NTNU, N-7034, Trondheim, Norway, and detailed in his research paper, "Principles For Capture Of Energy from Ocean Waves",: “The generated wave has to interfere destructively with the other waves. In other words, the generated wave has to interfere destructively with the other waves. This explains the paradoxical, but general statement that "to destroy a wave means to create a wave."

What we are left with at this point in time, and relating to this event, are that the parametric equations of these seismic waves do not correspond to well with an earthquake but do so almost exactly with a meteorite strike hitting the ocean waters off of Sumatra with a force equal to 1,000,00MT. Seismic waves, or tsunamis, have periods typically from 10 minutes to one hour, wavelengths of several hundreds of kilometers, and mid-ocean heights usually less than half a meter. Because of their long wavelengths, tsunamis often satisfy the criterion for shallow-water waves. The waves that caused such horrific loss of life cannot be described within these parameters.

Almost a year to the date of these present events, 30,000 human lives were lost in the great earthquake that struck the ancient city of Bam in Iran. How many in the world remember this? As of this writing the loss of human life from this present event is reaching over 60,000 human lives. Will they be remembered in a year?

But most importantly is the question of if the Western nations peoples will begin to rise from their mental slumber, their self induced ignorance of the great global changes presently occurring, and begin to seek the truth of these matters. Their failure to do so will lead to the unnecessary loss of life of millions that will pale in comparison to these past days events. This should not be allowed to happen.

Need I even mention that this event, and as described by Western scientists and media violates Newton’s First Law, which states: “Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.”

Do yall really think that this could have possibly been a meteorite?

I think this whackjob has no idea what they're talking about.
