Meh, you can't really pin science to any one type of model for truth. What i mean is science or known science has already been proven wrong at least 50 times this year already. What was thought to be known and what actually happened threw science for a loop, they had to re-write books n stuff.
With that being said, this planet (looking at al the usual places of info) is under much stress at the moment. We don't need a 12.5 mega-quake to rip the country in half....we just have to flood the greater portions of the affected area with water....which a well placed natuarally occuring 8.8 or greater will likely do. We're not talking about parting the land...just lowering it to a point below sea level or flood plain.
Look at whats happening in the midwest now anyway......I'm no rocket scientist but some of that has to be man made....the only natural solution I could think of that would be throwing things outta whack globally is the death of the thermo-haline current comin out of the gulf (thanks BP)
Still understand that just because it doesnt seem likely, doesnt mean that it can't happen. And while I do not agree with OP on how it's all goin down...the symptoms of a greater happening for that area are in fact there and note worthy. This cannot be denied...Plus I've seen earthquakes caused by less havoc.........but i imagine if you wanted a prehistoric fault to come alive....you'd have to help it along...man made or not.

Great thread OP. There are Intraplates, according to, "Stanford.edu." I knew I had read this somewhere on ATS recently with links as to plates other than the Continental plates.
I see where the Mississippi flooding, FINALLY made national headlines. Half a week of OBL, it's ok to talk about reality again...
Once more I sit in a.m. with coffee getting my NEWs on ATS.
Thanks again & good day!
