They found that strong earthquakes -- between 6.5 and 7.9 magnitude -- shook the area every 45-144 years, instead of the previously established 250-400 years.
Since the last big 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck southern California in 1857, or 153 years ago, scientists believe the next "Big One" could happen at any time.

You may find the answers to all the questions in the most obvious of places. The Bible. Revelations is now you will see for yourself if those of you that doubt only made the time to read it. You couldn't make it up.
Gods return is coming. We will all be tested that's for sure. We must all put wrongs right.
Doomsday? Well I suppose that's inevitable considering its in fact us that has orchestrated these events because if we hadn't strayed so far from what god wanted then he wouldn't be put in a position where he has to rectify it. In order for us all to live how we are supposed to god has to put everything back to the way it was. Unfortunately its because of our actions why this must happen. Once he has done this, then and only then can we move forward to a greater time. The great tribulation.
Its not all doom and gloom. Times will be hard but stay focused on what it is that was only ever meant for us.

it's always easier to dismiss everyone as ignorant.
what you do not know, what you possibly could not fathom, is that I was a devout christian for most of my life, going to church four times a week and twice on sunday, i can't count how many times ive read the bible.
but that ended when i began to think for myself, and allow the universe to show me the true way. When you only see the world in blue, of course it's going to be your favorite color.
the difference between you and I, is, ... ive been where you are. Yet to try and teach you anything would be the equivalent of disciplining a stubborn child.
you don't even know what ignorant means, because to do so you would shatter the fragile belief system you hold so dear.
