Wonder if those in Peru will be evacuating offices in the capital city, closing down airports and whatever else similar to the yanks did yesterday to show the world how easily spooked they are. I'm guessing however its back to business as normal, maybe a few masonry tiles down, but no HAARPtards to whinge about it.

At that depth is this one really that serious?

posted on Aug, 24 2011 @ 01:19 PM
yeah it was a 6.8, but it was also at a depth of 145 km. that's pretty deep. if it was felt on the surface it was probably very minor. you have to remember to look at the depth of the quake as well as the magnitude. a 6.8 EQ at 145 Km is WAY different than a 6.8 EQ at 3 Km.

I doubt it is all that serious in terms of damage and just shows that there is a lot of shaking going on under our feet lately!

Well, RUDDD, in all fairness, East Coasters aren't used to the ground shaking under their feet. I used to live in California and the kids & I were just, huh, earthquake. Soccer practice that night was lots of folks from Gettysburg College talking about the buildings shaking and evacuating. I thought it was cute until I remembered that the oldest building on campus is from 1838 and everything is made of BRICK. Good reason to get out.

I was pretty surprised that a 5.9 would show up where it did.

The Mayan Timekeepers don't agree with you...

Calleman's theory is just that... a theory, and no Mayan will tell you that he's right. They haven't adjusted their clocks.

And they've made it very clear that 2012 is NOT the end of the world.... that is a Western concept and wrong at that.

We are not in the Mayan 5th night yet and are still in the period of "Ethics" if you want to go by Calleman's understanding of the Mayan time cycles.

Now that`s a big one but as mentioned pretty deep.
Seems to have actually let off some over at Japan recently.
This site actually had none showing for a while and now has a 5 showing. Hope this isn`t building up for a larger one for them there.

certainly a bunch of movement going on as we advance towards the debunked theories of doom. So glad they all have been debunked by the pro debunkers.

so it`s all normal but the internet is new so we just know it happens now.

looking forward to see some seismic expert on ATS actually show mother Earth is experience atypically high activity this year already!

Something maybe to take notice of was the timing of this quake compared to the quake in Virginia yesterday. It's almost exactly 24 hrs later. I think it's only 5 minutes shy of 24 hrs. This makes me think something is putting external force upon the earth. Similar times and similar latitudes (37), could be nothing more than coincidence, but it seems to be really kicking into high gear. Time will tell, until then fasten your seat belt, this could turn into one hell of a rough ride.

Don't hold your breath.
They will never admit it.

I also find the fabricated stuff about the Mayans to be over the top. The actual Mayans of course do not, did not believe any of the nonsense attributed to them. Sitchen set a standard for hoaxers out to earn a living through deception. I think at first he was for real and his need for money turned him. Probably the same is true to explain where the fake Mayan stuff comes from. That and even more sadly those that use it for attention.

A few months ago I had a documentary going in the background while working at home on the computer. A show came on about a family that had destroyed their and their children's lives for the most part due to the lies about the Mayans. Their entire lives revolved around 2012 and to be honest they were as looney a pair of parents as I've ever seen. The show even brought in a real Mayan Scholar who was himself Mayan to try and clear their heads of the lies. I'm not sure what the end of the show entailed or what the outcome was, but I did catch the part where the Mayan gentlemen tried to give them the truth.

I wonder how many lives are negatively impacted by these false claims and fear mongering. Children's lives ruined by fanatical scared parents? That family on that show was probably the tip of the iceberg. I'm still waiting to see how many suicides will come as a direct result of the Mayan and 2012 fantasies. The things we do to ourselves is amazing and often sick. So many have gone all in betting these myths are true. The Post Trauma will be staggering for many of those taken in by this stuff. The repercussions when 2012 passes by and the lies are revealed cannot be good. Already fragile people will not react well.

The fakers and liars who invented this stuff will just invent a new date and continue on with the charade.
