Major quakes hit Japan and Indonesia


www.cnn.com

(CNN) -- A magnitude 6.9 earthquake rattled Japan on Thursday, within minutes of a magnitude 6.6 earthquake in Indonesia, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries from either quake, but both prompted tsunami warnings, although Japan's Meteorological Agency predicted it would be small, about 50 centimeter (20 inches).

The Indonesian quake occurred at exactly 9 a.m. (0000 GMT), the USGS said. Its epicenter was offshore, about 75 miles (120 km) north of Ternate in the province of Moluccas in eastern Indonesia. The quake was strongly felt in Ternate

Isnt this what they said would happen after they launched that Atom Smasher... I hope it is not a trend

They haven't even smashed anything together yet. I doubt making a sub-atomic particle cruise around a tunnel would create earthquakes in Asia.

No, nobody said anything about earthquakes attributed to the LHC.

Just nonsense about black holes "eating" the planet.

Seems no one realizes there have already been OTHER particle accelerators operating for many years. One is in Urbana, Illinois.

No black holes yet!

Here's an idea...Google or Wiki the 'Ring of Fire' to learn about plate tectonics, especially as pertains to the Pacific Ocean and the continents that surround it.

Well... Crazier things have happened... and yes some people did... and guess what.. that was before these two quakes....

Quake rumours sweep the nation





Dubai: Scientists fire up the world's biggest atom-smasher in Geneva in the quest for unravelling the secrets of the cosmos - a test that doomsayers had said would create the cataclysmic suck of a black hole and spell the end of Earth.

Hours later, a powerful earthquake jolts southern Iran, bringing death and destruction and sending aftershocks that could be felt even in the neighbouring Gulf states.

Rumours began circulating on Wednesday that the tremors in Iran were inexorably linked to the Swiss mission. Why is it that on the day of man's dark journey to find and define matter and energy does the force of destruction strike? Wasn't the Bandar Abbas quake the warning signs of things to come if the atom-smashing experiment gathers steam in Geneva?




Doomsayers link Iran quake to 'Big Bang'

just to lighten the mood a little... below links

Could the collider cause a comet collision?

Earthquake In Iran Caused By CERN Black Hole Machine


It is possible...

the one that struck japan was 7.2
news.bbc.co.uk...


A few minutes later, a 7.2-magnitude quake hit Hokkaido's coast, 220km (135 miles) east of the capital, Sapporo.


some interesting tectonic malarchy we have going on now.

Actually, a guest on Coast To Coast AM did say that... but he also said they would happen within minutes of the earth disappearing. So I guess these weren't it.

Again, particle accelerators have been operating for less than fifty years.

Plate tectonics, for billions of years.

There is a new TV series that is just premiering here in the States that is going to be the Daddy of all Conspiracy buffs! (created and produced by the originators of 'Lost')

In the Pilot they already made an oblique reference to the tragedy of the tsunami in...2004. Implying that an airplane transmitting very high frequency sounds, along the shoreline, caused the undersea earthquake, thus triggering the tsunami event.

But if you study the actual events of that deep-sea quake, you'll see it occured along a tectonic fault. The premise of high-frequency sounds triggering movement on a fault under thousands of feet of water is ludicrous.

Naval communications underwater are done using ULF (Ultra-Low Frequencies) because they travel so well in a dense medium, like water...as compared to air.
(Of course, this is old news, likely the Navy has Top-Secret other ways to communicate today....but still, doubt it's going to be some Ultra-high frequency. Just a thought)

It's astonishing what kind of tremendous leaps of illogic can be accomplished today, thanks to the nearly instant dissemination of news and speculation, that unfortunately blur the distinction BETWEEN news, real science, and pure speculation.

there is a theory that the earth is growing, maybe it is just growing pains so to speak, if you can wait i will post a video

Sorry monkeybus.

Don't know where you found that (I know, youTube) but whoever made that is a complete idiot. PLEASE don't believe such nonsense!

Subduction is true, and observed. With the advent of many, many very deep undersea explorations, it is undeniable. Also, please take a look at what's referred to as the Mid-Atlantic Rift.

NOTHING in that nonsense video explains the reason for mountain formation. Put your critical thinking cap on, and you'd see that if the planet were 'expanding', as suggested, there would be no mountains.

There are fossilized sea creatures found above 10,000 feet elevations. This can only be explained by 'uplift' of ancient seabeds, as plates pushed against each other. The various rock strata, observed all over the Earth, on what is now dry land, also confirms the plate movements.

Except for that video (which has no scientific veracity) the FACT of plate movement is thoroughly peer-reviewed, and constantly refined by each new observation and calculation.

Really, YouTube is not a very reliable "classroom".

adding: Where did all of our water come from? And all of the mantle, and molten parts deep in the Earth?

You see, when rocky planets are formed by accretion they start out very hot....it's the energy of the compaction, and impacts from other bodies that add to the mass. Over time, gravity sorts out the various elements....the lighter stuff 'floats' to the surface, and gradually cools.

But you must remember to think in terms of Billions of years before any life would begin to have a chance to develop.

This is a bit spooky. 3 large quakes in a very short space of time.

Hope it's not a sign of more to come and things settle down.

Hate to say it, but better there than here, at least Japan has earthquake proof buildings, I'm not sure many portions of the U.S. could handle a strong quake, not even the west coast.
