THE OBVIOUS: This is not a rant. I’m asking questions rooted in deductive and inductive reasoning, and while some questions are rhetorical, others require answers rooted in deductive and inductive reasoning. Furthermore, I am not attacking any religion nor am I blaming this on “god”. As previously stated, you’re the one posting here, you’re the ones making all these claims as if you’re part of a higher power or speaking on behalf of a higher power so I’m asking you. You’re the ones with the crystal balls, indigo powers, remote viewing skills, telepathy etc so I’m asking you the question. Why did all the Aliens, Indigo Children, Time Travelers, Mystics, Enlightened, Psychics, etc FAIL to predict the EQ in Haiti?

For the record, many people wouldn't say anything because:
1. People like YOU would bash them for making a prediction (check BTS dream/prediction and ATS prediction section, plenty of examples of this).
2. The chances that someone with enough authority would listen to one person saying something like that are near impossible (unless you can point me to a person that would ).
3. People can't (in general) control when they get the information they do.
4. If you read this far I congratulate you for actually listening to these arguments.
5. People would bash them for NOT saying a prediction.
6. Some people aren't sure whether a "rose is just a rose" or if it means something more.
Oh, and somewhere in this thread you mentioned "show a prediction that actually SAVED someone".
Well, I happen to have just such an experience happen to me a while back, and the proof is that this person is alive today. I would gladly share this experience, although based on your responses so far, you will probably do one or more of the following:
-bash me for it
-claim I have no evidence
-chalk it up to a creative imagination
-possibly accept it (doubtful, but I can always hope)
And I agree with some of the other people: do the research BEFORE you instigate a philosophical argument like this one. I recommend starting at crystalinks.com
This is not a rant on you, just answering your original question (or not, if you dislike the answers)

Plus there is big maney to be made by fake psychics etc
Is it necessary for anyone to have predicted these events?
They are only natural events, things that occur frequently on this planet.
Any prediction by an average member would have been ignored and there would be no point to making the prediction early because no one would take action prior to any event based solely on the written word.
Yet I know of some people who forecast about ten or so years ago how these events would increase in frequency across the planet as it builds up to a climax phase of destructions.
While they did not predict this particular earthquake, they did predict the Trend seen over recent years.
I personally know of someone who predicted both the September 11 scenario and Asian Tsunami events weeks before they occured, but, no one listened to him.
And when asked whether they remembered his predictions they all said No. Goes to show how much attention people place on really listening without thinking about what they will say next.
There can be No Fail in this instance because it was not predicted, therefore nothing was ventured to say it should.
Your problem seems to lay with an intense dislike for those who are Awakening to higher consciousness, and those who think or believe they are, and those who are mentally unstable making large claims of themselves.
You need to know that is how it is meant to be now with many false prophets in these times. More are awakening but few of those genuine ones will speak up until they get over the fear they hold within of ridicule by peers.
Fortunately on this board there are a very small handful of those who are genuinely Awake and you can tell who they are by their words and actions if you know what to look for.
Most people are still asleep, many are in foolishness.. just a stage of growth... and many do not yet trust their own gut instincts in order to speak up.
Is it your place to pass judgements upon anyone's beliefs and or abilities when you yourself have not yet Awoken to your own higher awareness?
The answer there is a No. I mean this not as an offence to you but as a pointing out of how we should not judge without walking in someone's shoes first.
