This comes after a 5.1 hit earlier and now a bigger one, interesting

I hope it isn't a preshock building to a bigger one yet to come.

It's one thing after another just lately.

Just heard a news reporter on CNN mention the moon being behind this.

Things are getting crazier and crazier.

We are living in interesting times.

There is another guy on CNN now debunking anything cosmological as a possible cause. I reckon Corbyn would disagree.

Because CNN reporters have great insight into geology and astronomy, as well as astrophysics. Did they happened to mention a source for the information?

That had to be a good jolt compare the ones before earlier this week, the depth was 6.8 miles

Their source was the best source ever....it was, "some people".

Try and dispute the credit of that claim

Yeah, but some people say it's the Annunaki that are causing all the quakes. So that makes me very confused.

Oh, and some people say second line.

I believe in the Annunaki but I doubt that this is directly caused from them.

I mean, Japan does live on a fault line that is pretty active.

I'm sorry, but I don't recall the gentleman's name. He was an "astrophysicist". Him, a gentleman from the USGS and someone else. They were on Piers Morgan. I'm sure you can go to the CNN website and it will list who his guests were, if you are interested in the validity of the reports.

It doesnt matter what news channel it is really,if the reporters think they can make themselves sound like they know what they are talkiing about they will say anything to do so and to try to one up competitors but really it just makes em sound like theyre talking out their ars...they have know clue what is or isnt causing these things to happen so maybe they should stick to reporting what they know which wouldnt be too much

Well, seeing as you made the claim and I didn't then you should be the one to research it no?

Here, I'll give you my reference and you give me yours.


There's no evidence to support that," said John Bellini, a geophysicist with the survey's National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colorado. "There were some studies in the past that tried to link lunar effects to seismicity [the relative frequency and distribution of earthquakes] and there was nothing found

The idea of the Moon affecting us on Earth isn’t total nonsense, but it cannot be behind this earthquake, and almost certainly won’t have any actual, measurable affect on us on March 19, when the full Moon is at its closest.

Are you sure it wasn't an astrologer that was on?

What kind of Voodoo science is that? What are these things called fault-lines? That sounds like a bunch of mumbo jumbo, unless you are talking about god lines that the Annunaki put in the earth to make it shake...

You've got a good point. As the two are most likely mutually exclusive. I could believe in Annunaki without thinking they have ray guns pointed at the tectonic plates. Plus, what happened to the science they taught me as a kid that theorized whenever the sun had a flare, as we have had some whoppers lately, then the earth has all kinds of crazy weather? Yes to anyone who is thinking it, earthquakes are also considered weather.

I do feel that IF there really is a planet/brown dwarf in this solar system with us, I am not sure yet, it sure would cause the Sun to flare more. Then, all kinds of effects like the ones astronmers have been observing on the outer planets plus the warming observed on Mars etc, make more sense to me. It seems to fit what is happening with the seemingly excessive amount of earthquakes and volcano's. I can't imagine so many volcano's going off without some influence. HAARP can't possibly cause this much trouble or so I would hope.

See, that's where everyone is wrong. It is clear that HAARP isn't causing the quakes but instead covering up the ancient Annunaki technology that is causing them. It is clear that the draco-reptilian-overlord-gods that are riding the Nirutu spaceship, obviously want Tonga as one of their home bases. They are hiding behind the Sun right now in their brown dwarf-star-planet hollow ship. They are just waiting for their Tesla technology to level a few more cities before they show up. Tesla was an Annunaki btw, so was Divinci, they never really died because their are hybrid aliens that live for thousands of years. They are just waiting for their brethren to return so they can show their faces again, along with Elvis.

*I mentioned Tonga, so this is still on topic.

Well, my imagination might not be going where your leading
, but I can agree with the part where HAARP is doing something to cloud the issue one way or the other. What I would suspect is if this is a weapon, and I think we can all agree it could be therefor it probably is. Then the Chinese and the Japanese might have ticked off TPTB. THAT is believable. But, I am going to stick to the theory the Sun is causing magnetic waves, for a yet to be determined reason. These waves along with the charged particles are wreaking havoc.

I collect data telemetrically and have been hammered the last 36 hours with electronic failures of several varieties. They all happened in one general region for me, making me think that the part of the area that was furthest east was just barely exposed to the sun when the event that knocked them out occured. While the rest were still dark waiting on sunrise, are fine. Coincidence, perhaps? Not, according to my theory anyway.

And here I thought the "best sources ever" were Twitter, Facebook status updates, Wikipedia, and Google Earth. Forgot the "some people" fallback for when you're reporting unconfirmed news.

I always think it's hilarious when they report "someone sent me this on twitter and we confirmed it on wikipedia" like it's news.
