Since a magnitude 14 has never happened, how can anyone have an opinion on what it would do?




All we can do is speculate. And if a 9.1 EQ is 1000x times more powerful than a 9.0 EQ, a 9.2 EQ 1000x times more powerful than a 9.1, etc, etc - you don't need to be a geology major to fathom what type of destruction an unprecented event like a mag 14 EQ would cause.

I believe in the movie 2012 the EQ that destroyed LA and sunk the west coast into the ocean was 12 mag EQ, but then again that was just a movie and something like that can never happen in real life.....or so we've been told.

Its probably why the search function exists.


My apologies, and I can't believe I missed this since it was on the breaking news forum.

Techincally though it should have been posted in the proper forum which is this one. Because this is just another prediction, and hopefully an innaccurate and absurd one at that.

I suppose, in theory- it could happen? I don't know enough about the scale to make a determination- just that with every increase, the severity grows. Ie- the difference between an 8.1 from an 8.0 is much greater than 4.1 from 4.0. So a 14 would seem to destroy....a lot. It would be more powerful than a giant meteorite hitting the earth. Likelihood? Doubtful


To be fair his prediction states that Taiwan would be split in half, and an earthquake of that magnitude (14) would be necessary for that to occur. If he said Taiwan would be split in half by a 9.0 earthquake now THAT would not make sense.

let's see..have some fun with this:
Two peas in a Padded Pod ( relatives visiting )
Pod Patch ( rental complex )
I Pad ( a place to recharge my I phone )
Piddle Pad ( Pod public latrine )
It's sad and even if the guy was right..how would anyone survive a humungous tidal wave given
the power of water?

Bump - what is with all these mega quake predictions for 05/11/11?

The latest one for Italy was apparently made many years ago from a seismologist that died in 1979. Hopefully all of these predictions won't come to pass and are just a coinicidence...
