During the entire decade of the 1970s, the USGS recorded a total of 44 earthquakes it classified as "significant." The following decade, from January 1980 to December 1989, the USGS recorded 47 significant earthquakes. That is for the entire decade. From 1990 through the end of 1999, the USGS records 57 significant earthquakes. From 2000 thru to Monday's earthquake in Sichuan, China, the USGS recorded an astonishing 109 earthquakes of at least magnitude 7.0 and 13 earthquakes measuring between 8.0 and 9.9 on the Richter Scale.
On the other side of the world, the long-dormant Chaitan volcano erupted May 2 for the first time, say geologists, in more than 7,000 years. The BBC reported that a government volcano expert warned there could be a big eruption at any time.

I've made a short study in the last two years and I noticed that the weather is usually striking at those ones, those countries, whose are somehow hurting Gaia or the people, whose are defending her.

Is it entirely possible that there aren't actually more earthquakes, but we're doing a better job of recording them? 30 years ago, especially if an earthquake occured in an unpopualted area or underwater, would it have been a given we'd have detected it?
When Jesus was asked by His disciples to tell them what "signs" would precede His return at the end of the age, He warned that "nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines, plagues and earthquakes in various places," He said (Matthew 24 and Luke 21). Using an analogy immediately understandable to all peoples in all nations, he said of these signs, "All these are the beginning of birth pains."

Earthquakes, floods, tornado's etc have all been happening since the world was created. And they will continue to happen as the world is always changing. Thats just my opinion.
