No, I'm not pulling your leg. I still don't understand what you're tring to say. Forget about substituting words, I'm just reading what you wrote. It's too late in the day for riddles my friend. Is the devil in my mind because I twisted the meaning, or because you did?????


Peace

Interesting that these major Earthquakes happen around times of celebrating the birth and ressurection of Christ (Bam 26th Dec '03, Sout-east Asia 26th Dec '04 and 28 Mar '05).

Probably strange coincidences but still...

Not again...


An 8.7 earthquake, that is about half as strong as the 9.0 that hit on Boxing day. Any word if this one generated tsunami(s) in the region? If so, I really hope the warnings get out properly this time; so many died needlessly last December just because people weren't/couldn't be warned. I have a friend of mine who is currently vacationing in Thailand, a fellow ATSer, raven2012, I'm going to see if I can get ahold of him and find out more about what's going on here.

Icarus is hoping for salvation for those in the path. You misread the meaning behind the quote.

Very strange indeed that these earthquakes happen on these days. By the way, did these British people that predicted the earthquake two weeks ago predict any for any other places?

Dr. Love,

Of course the devil twisted the meaning between us, not in your mind or mine, but in the communication between us. We both want people safely out of the path of destruction, just you didn't read my statement the way I intended it. I already said it was open to a negative interpretation, and explained my intent.

and may peace also be with you.

There are a lot of after shocks going on. Several in the 5.x to 6.x range. I would assume that the aftershocks could be just as dangerous, as far as loss of life goes as the original quake(s).

OR, These are related to moon phases and Tidal energies.
Full moon on Dec 26th, 2004, and just past full on March 28th.
What else can exert large amounts of force over the surface of the Earth?

Here is a pretty cool Moon phase Calendar generator.

296 Dead in Indonesia Quake, Official Says

Indonesia - A major 8.7 earthquake struck late Monday off the west coast of Indonesia, and a local government official said 296 people were killed in collapsed buildings on one island. Thousands panicked in countries across the Indian Ocean as tsunami warnings were posted.

From: The Australian - Tsunami danger not over: Aussie

Australia's bureau of meteorology said a 25cm tsunami had already hit Australia's remote Cocos Island and bigger tidal surges were expected to strike Australia's west coast.

Australia's bureau of meteorology initially reported that the tsunami measured just 10cm at Cocos Island, located in the deep waters of the Indian Ocean south of Sumatra, but later upgraded that to 25cm.

"That's fairly big for the deep ocean," Mr Cummins said of the wave which hit Cocos, adding that an alert had been issued for a one metre surge expected to hit the Western Australia coast.

What about Africa? Hope they´re ready for it...

Wow....just heard about this.....barely got off of work....

Would like to state my very positive impression of ATS......by far the most comprehensive coverage I could hope for.....we got more angles and more facts than anywhere else........the reason why I continue to login.......way up, guys


That said......I want to post the message verbatim contained in my CNN Breaking News Alert.....


Source: CNN
-- U.S. agency urges evacuations along coasts of countries on Indian Ocean due to tsunami fears after 8.2 earthquake.


My comment is to this effect.......remember the discussions accusing the U.S. of having a heads up on the Christmas tsunami and the negative feedback they recieved for not warning anyone.....it was the news within the news.....

Well, they wasted no time this go around and the media is right there with them......the alert doesn't tell me that there was an earthquake.......it tells me the U.S. is all about warning for tsunami's resulting from the quake......spin at it's best.........just thought I'd include this.....It's relevant in a conspiracy forum........

Is it unusual for a quake to last 3 minutes? My layman's impression was that most quakes only lasted a few seconds.


I am by means an expert. I think it depends on how deep it is. The deeper the longer it can go.

One thing to notice the TIMING of the today's earthquake:

11:09 am here (4:09 or 16:09 in Indonesia's time).

11 (0) 9 is reversed as 9 (0) 11.

Coincidence????

Yeah, coincidence. Numerology is fun to play with, you can make anything you want out of it. You could even break it down further and come up with a 2. Which if you are a catholic, could represent the second of the holy trinity, "the son".

But that also has nothing to do with the topic.

Just a quick heads up...I didn't know this until recently but an increase in quake magnitude by 1 digit (i.e. 5 to 6) means that a magnitude 6 quake is 10 times as powerful as a 5 quake. If the number increased from 5 to 7 then the quake would be 100 times more powerfull than the magnitude 5 quake. Magnitude increases by powers of ten.

Hundreds of houses on the remote island of Nias - 125 miles west of Sumatra - are believed to have collapsed.

A 8.7 magnitude earthquake is well enough to reproduce that tsunami killing hundreds of thousands on Christmas... so I guess, that fear will rise even higher.
