Good job exposing the strange connections with the Red Cross. If I donate I will try to use a charity that will give 100% of the money to the disaster victims instead of hoarding it for "future disasters"...
Cut the crap.
You were the one who mentioned earthquake machines in your original post, which is what I was referring to.
I keep hearing Theories about how the Haiti Earthquake was *CAUSED* by some earthquake machine, or Bombs or whatever....
And I tell ya, it looks less and less far fetched the deeper into this story I go.
I never said anything about earthquakes induced by human activity, these are two very different things.
One is a so called machine that has the ability to create earthquakes, the other is activity which can trigger an earthquake as a by product.
You should work on your interpretation skills before replying to posts and making ignorant claims that someone isn't doing their research.
If you're that sensitive that you refer to my comments as "hurling insults" then maybe you should stay away from the internet.

Hate to be cynical here, but there is no more human touch in the world today. Rarely does one do an act of kindness from the kindness of their heart without expecting payback.
You got Clinton and Bush and you got Rwanda and Darfur. Hard to believe after they played possum during those massacres they have grown a conscience.
United Nations Special Envoy to Haiti, former United States president Bill Clinton, has led a delegation of 500 business leaders from around the world to the Caribbean country in a bid to unlock what he called Haiti’s “great potential for development.”
Addressing the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in the capital, Port-au-Prince, yesterday, Mr. Clinton said that “this is the right time to invest in Haiti, to help build a better neighbour, a reliable business partner, an alluring tourist destination, and a more prosperous home for its hard-working, resilient people.” – UN News Center
If you really meant that earthquake machine, human activity, bomb are the same thing then you should have made that clear in your first post. Instead you presented them as seperate theories.
A bomb is indeed a potential earthquake triggering device but we're talking about an earthquake measuring 7 on the richter scale not little tremors. There is no evidence linking human activity with MAJOR earthquakes. Judging by the way in which the op was presented and saying earthquake machine implies some sort of top secret weapon.
After all your argument is that the government is behind this tragedy isn't it?
I was already aware of the effects that human activity can have on the environment so you haven't PROVEN anything to me. I'm referring to this "Earthquake Machine" you alluded to earlier as "looking less far fetched the deeper you delve into this story".
Saying the government is somehow responsible for this earthquake IS being paranoid. Think about how outlandish this argument is - the government creates earthquakes.
I think my position is pretty strong actually, I'm not the one making far-fetched claims. You need to present something more substantial to back these up if you want people to take your argument seriously.

No charity can give 100% of the income to the victims, as there are obvious running costs that need to be covered. I think that as long as no-one is making a profit, then they can be trusted.

The name of the secret society, the Rosicrucians translates into English as the Rose Cross or Rosy Cross. It seems like a small step to go from the Rosy Cross to the Red Cross. I'm not sure if there is a connection between the Rosicrucians and the Red Cross organization but the similarity in names really makes me wonder.

Did the US or someone else use an earthquake machine to cause the earthquake for financial gains?
No, of course not. That's just silly and paranoid.
Are there people out there trying to make money off this?
Yes, of course there is. There will always be those who prey on the weak.
Is the Red Cross evil?
Of course not, they do a lot of good... but they are also in it to make money. There are plenty of other organizations you can give to or just give clothes and food items to food shelters. You don't HAVE to give to the Red Cross. It isn't your ONLY choice.
I find it strangely humorous, in a dark way, that when a national disaster such as this strikes we all send millions and millions of dollars to these people. YET everyday thousands are starving and homeless all through out the world.
A person goes to Walgreens and gives 5 bucks to the red cross for Hati and leaves the store feeling like he actually did something. BUT the rest of the year he gives nothing to all those homeless and starving as he buys his video games and gorges himself on Cheetos and Mountain Dew?
My point here is that as humans we blind ourselves to the homeless and starving until there is a huge disaster and then we give money to alleviate our guilt from not helping out the rest of the time.
And I'm not saying all of you. There are really good people out there. I'm more like the guy who give 5 bucks at Walgreens, so I'm not tooting my own horn here. But this has opened my eyes to my own hyprocrisy and I am going to try better in the future to help out more.
I'm just curious what you all think on here.
