Thats like saying, "My cat sleeps 23 hours a day, but, during those hours my cat was sleeping, 8 people were murdered in Texas. Therefore, my
cat must kill Texans in his sleep."
Exactly. When I originally said that, I was speaking of the Elenin "alignments" causing earthquakes, but the sentiment is exactly the same: trying
to find a correlation between CMEs/solar flares and earthquakes is like finding a correlation between my cat and dead Texans.
Solar and seismic activity are not explicitly related. And, even if they are, so what? When a CME, like this one, does not cause an earthquake of any
significance, again like this one, and the excuse is "Well, not all CMEs are guaranteed to cause earthquakes because there has to be an area capable
of producing an earthquake for the CME to trigger," then what's the point? That's how earthquakes happen anyway... by the release of pressure from
areas capable of producing earthquakes.
The solar-seismic correlation is a baseless, senseless, and pointless "theory".
Oh...and my cat's been dead for 2 years.
