Please reference this post:

Those are not quakes that are showing, they are P-waves. P-waves travel halfway around the world in roughly 20 minutes. Look at the Utah Seismographs in that link. You will see all of them show a spike of some sort around 16:26 UTC but they vary widely in magnitude due to the sensitivity of the instruments. Most of those blips would have to be 3-5 times as tall on those graphs to be an actual felt eq in the area.

People are going to blow this up because that is what they want. They aren't looking for a scientific answer.. I hate to say it, but I think you are wasting your breath with some. I commend you, jr, eqwatcher, phage and others that are trying to point out the obvious.. but you are arguing with a group that will not listen to reason, nor do they want anything other than chaos so they can electronically dry hump each other's irrational posts..

I don't think there is anything more to discuss. But at least I can say I learned something new from this thread. I never new this sort of phenomenon occurred when these large, deep earthquakes happened. It would make perfect sense though. Crazy that such an earthquake in one spot could travel that fast and keep enough intensity to register on different seismographs across the world within such a relatively short amount of time! I'm never bored with the new information I learn about the way our world works!!

Yes, I'm not denying P waves are capable of it, but as I said to westcoast:

OMG are people really this dense? It doesn't happen if ATS doesn't notice it?

You have a handfull of people out of thousands who don't understand geologly so are using wild speculation instead of doing a little bit of reasearch and educating themselves.

You have another handfull of people out of thousands who HAVE already educated themselves and are trying their best to give you the scientifc answer, but you refuse to listen.
Well, that's nice, but you still have yet to back up your argument with evidence, you've given a "scientific" answer, and hooray for you, but you haven't proven your so-called "scientific" theory my friend. I just did a little Google search, and I'm finding it pretty hard to find any other case where this many seismographs have registered so many hits in such a small time span. I was finding things like 7 quakes within 48 hours...2 quakes in 3 hours...nothing like, forgive me if I don't simply believe things based on nothing but the above rant.
I'll shut up when it's shown this isn't a unique occurrence, because from what I can see, it's quite the unique occurrence, and can't simply be swept under the carpet as another mundane occurrence. I need FACTS!

Once again, I will lay this out, then I'm done.

The 6.5 quake in Brazil is very deep as well as what is considered a *strong* quake. Becaue of its strength/depth the P waves circled the globe quickly, showing up on many seismographs around the world.

Links have been provided where you can, if you chose, read about P waves and how they travel. A list was already provided by another poster listing all the times from various stations for the P wave for this specific quake. Here is that list again, compliments Quakewatcher, incase you missed it:

Based on some of your statements, this is probably the first time you have examined seismographs or tried to figure them out. I get it. I understand it is hard to grasp the power behind these, but you need to listen to what is being said and do some reading and research yourself if you really want to understand it.

I do not have the time/space to go into more detail. The info is massive and frankly, no one would read it.

I realize I am probably wasting my time with this, but if even one person reading this gains a little knowledge, than it is worth it.

Here are some links:


University of Utah


Live internet siesmic server

Tsunami warning center

I could keep going, but the above links have enough educational info for those interested to keep you busy for weeks.

I can not force anyone to believe anything....but the information has been provided by myself and others to give you the accurate, scientific answer if you are willing to just look at it.

I am done with this thread, I hope that perhaps someone has learned something from it. I hope so, Geology/volcanology is very exciting field that is expanding almost daily. Learning about the world we live on is an amazing experience! Cheers.

but you need to listen to what is being said need to listen to what is being said...I want FACTS - plain and simple, is it really so hard to show us all that this isn't a unique event? Or are you agreeing that this type of thing is highly uncommon? Can you honestly say you've heard of such a thing before. It just gets me how you're all saying "case closed, time to go home and pack it up"...that's absurd...why should we all just take your word on have not conclusively shown that there is no reason to take notice of this event because it has happened before.

I pick up easily on "Earth Energies" and I have a feeling something is amiss, the Ley-Lines have been shunted out of place and are trying to re-establish their flow again. It would be interesting to see if anyone who does Dowsing has any negative feed-back from today, as I can sense nature is confused about something right now.

All eyes on the Sun in a day or two time to see if this wave has a impact on any Flares erupting, I have a feeling its the remnants of a Supernovae passing through but I can't be certain just yet until the Sun is observed within the next 48 hours.

I have been groggy lateley, too.

Has anyone else had a headache the last couple of days? I know this is a stretch, but it would be interesting if there was a correlation.

This thread is still going! Just read what Phage has said. Phage may not be a geologist with a masters degree, but he does actually research. Instead of assuming that an interstellar gas cloud that we're going to float into in 100 years, or a theoretical galactic superwave that is due to arrive in 2 years, or that 4th dimensional...oh forget it. I cannot believe some of the fantastical replies on this post. Really, alien low riders with a sound system? I mean what happened to real science? Its right there in front of you and no one wants to listen to it! Just read it, "P-Waves". That's it. All we need is some flat Earth theories and to blame Obama's invisible birth certificate and maybe one or two posts about illegal immigration causing it and this thread will be complete.

Thanks for the info OP. I learned something from this thread.

And than you Phage for bringing real and firmly established scientific fact into the mix of fantasy here despite some people's screamning death throes against you.

Hey guys, I found this on the usgs website. They leave out the 17:00 earthquakes from their current earthquake list. why?

posted on May, 25 2010 @ 01:23 PM
CHAOS, please read my post as you obviously refused to before:

check those 3 links in the middle ... those are three separate eqs over the last week that exhibit the exact same p-wave behavior (and they are all at different depths to boot) ... if you need more I can keep pulling them off the USGS site

this is why I do not post as much as I would like to on ATS, I'd rather lurk

I learned all of this info from the yellowstone thread and now follow it almost daily

posting without fully reading a thread or information contained therein =

ATS as a whole for learning new things =

mabey all of the oil displacement softened the blow because there would be less pressure.....

mabey they knew about this comming all along and purposley cause the oil leak to release pressure before the solar event..... soften the blow!

There was a 6.3 in the mid-Atlantic at 10:09.

Are we done now?

UPDATE 11:51pmCDT: Another major eruption. These are not coming from the riser. They are coming in to view from elsewhere, even in the long, high-view shots. Sometimes from behind the ROV. Twenty-four hours of near non-stop SpillCam viewing, and not one look at the BOP.

I posted this earlier on another popular website, but I want to share it here as well. When you click on the link, click on virtually ANY red dot and you will see an earthquake that happened around 1630GMT!

Haven’t heard anyone say one way or the other.

Do you ever get the feeling that you’re being ignored?

It’s a simple question. Is it possible for the recorded shockwave to cause the anomaly at the oil leak site?

Have you guys ever thought the movie 2012 was trying to tell us something, cosmic rays can pass through many things before hitting something dense, these could of hit the earth's core, ringing it like a bell, can somebody confirm a recent mass solar ejection or solar storm, I know that all of a sudden everyone is monitoring the suns activity, we need to realize that the ancients were far more wise and intelligent than we have ever known.

Cosmic rays can't really make it through the atmosphere. They cannot penetrate the Earth.

I wouldn't say the P-waves could be it (by the time they got to the Utah seismos, they were only about twice the magnitude of wind/background noise) but who knows I guess anything's possible. We don't know as much about the ocean and inner workings of the earth geologically as we should IMO.

[edit on 25-5-2010 by assasinforfather]

What part of Texas?

I live in West Texas. Every now and then you feel a small tremor from a fault line that is out by Monahans.

I suspect you are in the central region. That is some rocky area. It is mostly limestone, if that, out this way.

Is this the earthquake you are talking about in the atlantic. I have the info from the USGS site it just doesn't seem like it would set off seismographs all over the world. I may be wrong, if I am can you help me understand how it set them all off.

nothing ^nice name though

also wanted to add, the site the topic started included uses the same web icon as just looks a bit more choppy'er on the other site. Doesn't prove anything, but was funny *FAKE!!!!*

The ignorance level on ATS is growing, I can feel it!
