This is the day where many of you predicted a huge and disastrous catastrophe that would occur somewhere
on this planet, and NASA was covering it up because Leonid didn't exist, and because ELE is an Extinction Level Event and because etc.....
The alignment that you've all been waiting for is here, so it's time for you to deliver your promises.
You all know yourselves anyway
You don't show your calculations.
It's not random. There is a cause and effect.
If Elenin is not the cause of the EQs, there is still a cause. Plate tectonics, volcanism. meteorite impact, or some other cause.
To put a 8.8 and 9.0 off as random shows your ignorance.
Just because you do not understand the correlation, you choose to call it random rather than admit something is going on that you do not understand. Using your logic, everything that happens in the world is random.
Is the weather random? Using your logic, it is; but we all know there is a cause and effect for weather unless you believe in miracles, fantasies, or the occult. You may as well say GW Bush causes everything.
There is a 38% chance of picking a date within 5 days of a 7 or larger quake using random selection. For a window of 8 days the chance is 52%.
Now if we drop the quake level down to the 6.3 of Christ's Church the odds are much better. The odds just to an 80% chance of picking within a window of 2 days of an event of that size. That is just random chance.
You are correct. An observation was made, a hypothesis was formed, and now we are waiting to see.

Well it is true, it wasn't an ordinary comet. It was a hyperbolic comet.
I agree with your post though, this is a conspiracy website. Yet so many 'debunk on the second post' members don't quite get that. It is not a race to trash someone's theory to look cool.
If a poster is clearly full of it and his/her post makes no sense at all, then fair enough. If however, there is something relevant to be discussed from the post, then that discussion should be encouraged. Having an open mind is not a bad thing.
