USGS - Earthquake Facts and Statistics
As we are about a third of the way through the year, we're about right on target for an average year in nearly all magnitude ranges. Note that as of
2009, quakes below 4.5 were not added unless in the US, hence the marked drop
in these quakes.
Yes you are hearing about these earthquakes more. It seems every minor earthquake needs a new thread on here these days. But that doesn't mean the
world is falling apart. We are currently seeing an eruption in one of the most volcanic areas in the world, so there is nothing strange about that. We
live on a highly dynamic rock, and we are seeing a continuation of the processes that have been going on for millenia. Nothing to be alarmed about.
I've looked into the Nibiru theories, and I'm not yet convinved. I'll concede that their are many interesting ancient pictures, but claiming they
are evidence of Nibiru is just fitting the evidence to a theory, not using the evidence to form
a theory. Many of the pictures could be
resemling other objects like flying "orbs", perhaps even vehicles, but we can't know for sure.
I don't believe we are seeing anything "unusual" in the last couple years. But throughout history, every generation has had those who believe that
"the end is coming!". Luckily, we're still here
I would only start worrying if there were any actual
evidence that something unusual was going on (something other than wild speculation and
emotional feelings). But at the moment, Earths just being it's usual dynamic self. It pays to always be aware of the potential for disaster at any
moment, but that doesn't meaning claiming the "end is coming" after every quake or eruption.
