I have been living here in the PI for the past seven years (on the Luzon Peninsula). Been through several earthquakes, which are more of slight rolling type: no sudden jars. Maginitude here less than 4.0. Earthquakes this year have been in the southern territories of the PI, deep in the ocean's crust; I believe the largest was just over 6.0.

The interesting part of the Earth's topography around the PI is that the natural large faults of the "Ring of Fire" create a type of island around the PI. The fact that the greater area around the PI is an island, scientists believe (acc to my Internet research) that the island effect mitigates much of the seismic activity felt within the PI islands.

During the Pinatubo eruption of 1991, one earthquake measured 7.8 and was directly attributed to the volcano's awakening. Similar earthquakes in the PI since have been attributed to other volcanoes "letting off steam."

Mount Mayon is currently the most active volcano in the PI, and while it is "burping" rather often of late, no one has associated any significant earthquake activity of late.

Thus, when I heard of this rumor this morning, I dismissed it as just another malicious rumor to upset the populace, based on the two major points discussed above.

“So why are you trying to find out the future by consulting witches and mediums? Don’t listen to their whisperings and mutterings. Can the living find out the future from the dead? Why not ask your God?” (Isaiah 8:19).

Sorry folks, it's just sad that education in the Philippines has reached such a sorry state to include mumbo-jumbo-gumbo in its curriculum. Whatever mental conditioning has been provided over the last 20 or more years has produced generations of people more receptive to notions of the supernatural and event prognostications based on sorcery and religion, rather than good old common sense based on math and science. Well, to be fair, we cannot completely discount the fact that there still may be an earthquake. But, the force or magnitude cannot be ascertained. Earthquakes are unpredictable. But my money is on the described event not occurring at all(based on the data you can read on the USGS site, if you're actually smart enough to read it and interpret the data). My pity goes out to everyone who is needlessly worrying and anguishing over that silly prediction. I pray that they may find peace of mind, and that they grow wiser from this experience and place less faith in hearsay. Here, here, have a beer! =)

In a probably unrelated note, a 7.0 earthquake struck eastern Japan...so he got the continent right at least!

last time I checked Japan is an Island, not really part of the continent.
PLUS! Our friend specifically said Philippines and the earthquake was an 8.1.


Way off if you as me.

Last time I checked my map Japan is part of the continent of Asia (try Wikipedia you'll see what I mean, lol)...and also last time I checked Japan was part of the continental shelf, and also last time I checked Japan isn't too far away from the Philippines. You would be well suited to check a map next time you question my basic middle school geography.


I'm not trying to defend the person's prophecy, but as a reader of this website, you should know that sometimes prophecy is confused in interpretation. Again, I am NOT defending his prophecy, but just playing devil's advocate here. A guy predicts a 8.0 earthquake in the Philippines, and a 7.0 earthquakes strikes Japan, one island chain over. Now, I'm not saying he was off in the interpretation of an accurate prophecy, but what I am saying is that it COULD be possible. Peace!

You speak the truth, my apologies.
I guess I was in total skeptic mode with this one.

Forgive my ignorance.
