It doesn't matter to me if it's 187 or 188 days it's still pretty weird. I've did research on this a lot in the past week and one study in particular was really good, it matched up around 100 of the last major earthquakes out of 107 I believe happened on or around 188 days. Pretty damn weird IMO. These were all major earthquakes 7.0 or higher. Some people just want to delude themselves and act like everything's fine. Being in denial is one thing but to be deluded and sheild yourself from reality is a whole different story.

So that would mean an Tsunami warning?

Wait a sec.

Does anyone have any data on how far back this supposed 188 day theory goes?

How far back have we recorded 7+ earthquakes every 188 days?


17th Feb 2009 was the last date in the cycle there wasn't a substantial one from a very quick look.

Couple of med 6's and a couple were a day off though so it's not really substantive, just a quick look.

I've been watching the two brightest planets in the west (someone give me some names ) they are so much closer to alignment every evening now. Possibly jupiter venus or venus and mars one is very much brighter than the next brightest. Has to be Jup.

I'm growing tired of this same, incorrect argument.

The observation concerns earthquakes on the days that coincide with the 188 day cycle. It does not address other earthquakes outside these dates. They are irrelevant to this particular observation.

edit: @jepic, sorry this is not directed at you personally, just tired of this same thing being repeated ad nauseum.

This from the Tucson Citizen
tucsoncitizen.com...

I'll have to go find maps to see how far the City is from this areas.

An earthquake measuring 7.4 struck today in southern Mexico, about 110 miles from Acapulco, the U.S. Geological Survey reports.

Update at 5:01 p.m. ET: The governor of Oaxaca has released a statement saying that about 500 homes in the state have collapsed, though there are no reports of deaths, BBC radio just reported.

Update at 4:56 p.m. ET: AP says more than 60 homes were damaged near the epicenter in Ometepec, in southern Guerrero state, but there were no reports of death or serious injury. At least one building in Mexico City appeared to be near collapsing.

Update at 4:25 p.m. ET: In its revision, the USGS says the earth ruptured 12.4 miles deep, double its initial estimate.

I was wondering where all this could be stemming from:

Ley

Ley lines are alleged alignments of a number of places of geographical and historical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths, natural ridge-tops and water-fords. Their existence was suggested in 1921 by the amateur archaeologist Alfred Watkins, in his books Early British Trackways and The Old Straight Track...

...alleged alignments between old places in Old England.


...when during a revelation he noticed that many of the footpaths there seemed to connect one hilltop to another in a straight line. He subsequently coined the term "ley" because the lines passed through places whose names contained the syllable ley

Well of course the quickest path between two places is a straight line. You mean ancient people had that figured out?


Watkins believed that, in ancient times, when Britain was far more densely forested, the country was criss-crossed by a network of straight-line travel routes, with prominent features of the landscape being used as navigation points.

I see. Lesseee... shortest path, straight line, no compass. Check, check, and check.


Watkins later developed theories that these alignments were created for ease of overland trekking by line of sight navigation during neolithic times and had persisted in the landscape over millennia.

Got it. Lets go for a walk and not get lost in the forest.


In more recent times, the term ley lines has come to be associated with spiritual and mystical theories about land forms, including Chinese feng shui.

And there you have it. Once we lost sight of the original meaning we made up all kinds of stuff. Like direct straight line "routes" that cross ocean and mountain that no one has ever travelled before. Just overlaid on a map. I'm not even going to implicate the Chinese in this. We have enough illusions.

The quake was about 220 miles from Mexico City which is where I am located.When you are in the 4th floor of an apartment building ,and it feels like you are on an amusement park ride, it does not feel like a weak earthquake.Trust me.

First post to give a scientific perspective on the NOAA data.

Japan 'event' - I've reviewed the data and it looks like the sensor has been disturbed by 4.5cm in a small amount of time. (Due to the smaller tides offshore and the larger wavelengths (km's++++) of tsunami's these sensors need to be highly accurate and very sensitive) this sensor is in 5000m of water so the 4.5cm change puts things in perspective. This is not a tsunami, the instrument has just been disturbed. www.ndbc.noaa.gov...

N. America 'event' - the sensor is faulty, the data is scientifically impossible, a sudden 40m reduction in water level then back to it's previous level all day is rubbish. Someone is not doing QAQC of data. www.ndbc.noaa.gov...

Mexico event - yep this one is real but it's a small event. What would be more interesting would be coastal tide gauges in ports. The offshore system was measuring 20cm variations every minute for 5 minutes in 3500m of water before calming down. In contrast, the variations in Japan lasted days not minutes. While this would cause a trigger this is a very minor tsunami. Any major issues would occur in any ports with breakwaters aligned in such a way that as the wave attempts to propagate offshore it is trapped and sieching occurs as further waves are created and combine to create more destructive waves. www.ndbc.noaa.gov...

I hope this first post has been informative.

I was wondering when we would see something close to us, on the eastern side of the Pacific Rim. Such large quakes, it seems, on the other side of it, not so much in the u.s. on the west coast, seemed like it would build up pressure on our side and need to release somewhere at some near point.

I will admit, my curiosity is piqued about the 188 day theory... makes me wonder, must say! Have read several reports about the length of the shaking, it is quite amazing given the size and depth that there wasn't more damage.

I do hope the injuries are minimal

This is why I rarely come on ATS anymore, to much fear mongering, to many paranoid people. Yea the earthquake was a decent size but it sounds like you guys think it's the end of the world. None of you can even come to a conclusion as of how many days it's been according to the 188 day theory. If it was a 188 day cycle it would happen every 188 days, not 187 or 189, it would be 188. I guess you can call it the 187 day cycle now right? Then again the response will be "It is a day ahead in what ever country, so therefore it's 188 days." even though it happened in Mexico which would bring it to 187 days.

many too many
if those were rare (biggies outside of the 'cycle') then ok but those are frequent
en.wikipedia.org...

for me it looks like you choose only those that fit and live the rest (7.0+ and even 7.5+) which in fact is MAJORITY aside - just set the list by mag en.wikipedia.org...


If there will be something really large then I may reconsider and get deeper to check it but atm there is not enough evidence for me and the facts prove it wrong/coincidence and/or a selective approach.

God bless you Nove, stay safe, and maybe have some strong drinks. I would, while feeling scared of more shockwaves. Maybe sleep overnight in a park, if they'l let you. I think I would do that, too, with my martini kit and cats.

So you should be doing some laundry very soon I would imagine. I have a friend who pees himself everytime a door slams. That's why I'm interested.

I been keeping a close eye on this 188 day theory. I do remember a thread mentioning axis altering quakes ??? I would post the link but still learning my way around ats.

No. I did not see the original thread about this theory specify that all major quakes that happen in between the 188 days are irrelevant. Therefore this theory is a fail.

Why do people keep concluding that this quake was it...

THERE IS STILL TOMORROW A.K.A THE DATE IN QUESTION... There should be NO CONCLUSIONS being drawn period!!!!!!

I wish I knew who the Original Poster was who made a thread about a week ago telling us about the 188 days, Im not sure if it is this OP or another one, If the OP from the previous one reads this, all I gotta say is you were right buddy and "Damn Nature...you scary!"
