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

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
