Does this mean we can sleep easy for another 188 days then?

I wanted to believe the 188 day theory until I took a look at all the 7 and above earthquake magnetudes that were not considered in the 188 day calculations. In 2011 alone there were 19 earthquakes measuring 7.0 and above. Unless I'm mistaken, there can only be 2 earthquakes per year if we use this theory. The alignment of the sun and planets seem scientifically ideal for this but for me it's just not panning out. A good explanation can be found here: 188 Earthquake Cycle Examined

It's a great theory when you ignore the other quakes that contradict it...

I mean, clearly that little 7.0 magnitude quake that killed only 300,000 people in Haiti means nothing...

Since it alone would ruin the 188 day theory...

Oh crap we aren't meant to talk about that are we.....???

People, please read: Saying the quakes must happen on exactly a 188-day cycle is really just saying that the window of time in which the quake must occur is exactly a 24-hour window. Or, more specifically that the quake must occur in 188 days, +/- 12 hours either way. That is a completely arbitrary window of time to use; there's no reason why it can't be, say, +/- 24 hours, which would constitute a 48-hour window of time the quake must strike. As it happens, all 5 have struck on this cycle within a 48-hour window. The odds of that happening are astronomically low.

Now, to the naysayers who will no doubt try to claim these quakes happen often enough to always occur every two days, that is factually incorrect. There are only 13-15 earthquakes per year of magnitude 7+. That means that M7+ earthquakes occur, on average, once every 24-28 days. To find a cycle in which one always occurs within a two-day window every X number of days is not a coincidence, it's a pattern.

If we give the naysayers the benefit of the doubt and assume 15 M7+ quakes will occur in a given year, the odds of a M7+ quake occurring during any arbitrary two-day period is 15/365 * 2 which is approximately an 8% chance. So you can pick any two days, and there will be an 8% probability that a major earthquake will occur somewhere in the world on at least one of those two days. The odds of two separate events occurring on two different arbitrary two-day intervals is the square of that, which is .64%, and gets exponentially lower for each additional successful event. We can't use the first quake when calculating the odds, since that's our reference point, and we're predicting a cycle beginning from that point. So discounting the first quake, and counting the remaining four, we get a probability of 0.004096%, or in other words, astronomically low.

So, the odds of a major earthquake occurring every 188 days, allowing for a window of +/- 24 hours, 4 consecutive times after some initial reference quake, is 0.004096%. Yet it happened. Want to say there's nothing out of the ordinary about that?

So assuming this cycle is true... the next one would be on the 25th of September this year. That's a little too close to the 21st of September for my liking. Wow...

How would that ruin the theory? No one is saying a single earthquake wont take place outside of this cycle. Of course there are more than one reason for earthquakes. Just because there are quakes outside of the pattern doesn't mean the pattern is false.

Unless I'm mistaken, there can only be 2 earthquakes per year if we use this theory.
Oh god how dumb are you, really? So that's your best attempt at debunking this pattern is it?

That's quite convenient isn't it?

You could probably force fit any pattern of days to a range of magnitudes if you wanted and many have.

All it is, is hedging your bets.

A poster before me stated the fact that the 188 day cycle phenomenon might be due to an outside source considering the fact that each 188 days we are roughly on the other side of the sun.

If I could get some other member comments on this it would be appreciated.

Side note, I don't think its a rogue planet or any of that unproven malarky. Everything revolves around something in our universe. Scientifically its ok to have the idea that we are revolving around a giant black hole in our galaxy.

It would make logical sense that when we get closer to the center, our planet gets pulled more than normal. It would also make sense that when we are the furthest away from center other gravitational forces pull in their own respective way.

Hence the 188 day phenomenon.

I don't think the way it works is that we are ONLY allowed to have earthquakes on the 188+/- cycle lol... I mean, you're assuming quakes can only have ONE source or cause. Apparently there exists technology to make an earthquake happen WHENEVER YOU WANT! And then there's the "tectonic" quakes we all know about! I think the theory is that, on top of all the regular earthquakes, you can also count on having a pretty strong on on the 188+/- cycle.

We don't really have all the info, obviously, but it could be a cosmic source. Just imagine for a minute that these "gravity troughs" or whatever, DO exist. Now imagine a heavy mass object orbiting with the sun... Since its IN MOTION and not coming straight at the sun in a straight bee line, we are not going to come between it and the sun on the same exact date every year. It's just a thought. Or it could be some energy coming out of the sun at opposite ends, and as the sun rotates or the spots move erratically, the spot isn't the exact same every time. I don't pretend to "know all answers absolutely when it comes to the amazing phenomenons of natures enigmatic ways" like SOME do......... And I believe it to be a healthy exercise to think and talk about these things. Preferrably free of ridiculing comments....... AHEM!

Thank you, you may have read my YouTube comment or someone else who read my comment. The video maker seemed to like my idea. It's just an idea of course, and the answer may be way off from that, but it could provide a base for other ideas to jump off from

189 days Japan to the Fiji quake then 187 to this Mexico quake... I see no real problem with that. Going by recollection and without consulting a map I believe Fiji Islands are just across the International Dateline. So, had that quake centered a few miles more to the east it would have been the day before and all the arithmetic would have been good. We are using local time of those events which were happening in different parts of the globe, and time and distance have a correlation.

Again without doing the exact arithmetic or consulting a map, it would appear that using International Time or GMT it might clear up discrepancies, or perhaps a different time zone by a few hours would be the one that makes the 188 days more or less perfect. We might really be on to something if we could call it the 188 day 7 hour and 33 minute observation, or some such, but I believe the 188 days is nominal and has been working out more or less correctly for the past couple years. I realize there are earthquakes virtually everyday and this theory is not intended to predict them all but I am satisfied the Mexico quake fit with the theory and of sufficient magnitude - higher magnitude than the Haiti quake that fit the 188-day theme though less destructive.

Gee I'm really disappointed that our Mexico quake was not as bloody and destructive as some of you have expressed your dissatisfaction over. I can assure you there are enough people displaced tonight because of home loss or significant damage and plenty in Mexico City who were panicked by this quake that still recall the massively destructive quake there in 1985. However I don't expect those people to share your disappointment.

That this quake was adequate for the theory and sufficiently close to me that many in my city felt the shock while I took a siesta and missed it all, I am not still waiting for the "Big Event" though I do not dismiss the possibility more bigger and badder shakers could soon come that will shake other people's worlds. I am reasonably certain more quakes will come along until the end of our days, both in and out of the 188-day cycle.

Just another point of clarification - this quake was epicentered in the Mexican state of Guerrero very close to the border of the state of Oaxaca. Oaxaca is a state in Mexico and is also the name of the capital city in that state and also is the city where the Obama daughter is currently visiting. That capital city, Oaxaca, is a fairly good distance from the epicenter and I have not heard any reports of damage done by the quake there while the Guerrero city of Acapulco was much closer but also without major damage. The center of this quake was in a fairly rural area and thank goodness was not in a major metropolitan center. For those of you who are disappointed by the lack of drama and bloodshed done by this quake I might suggest you go rent a movie or something of that nature so you can get your kick and sleep easier. Again, I found this quake to be quite sufficient and await no further disruption in order to be satisfied.

I will now be aware of this cycle theory and somewhat expect a large quake in late September, give or take a day or two. I will be relieved if that quake occurs in some remote area and does not entail severe damages and loss of life and property. I will be further relieved if it does not occur at all. In fact I would be extremely pleased if this is the last large earthquake we ever experience on this planet or any populated area throughout the entire universe. I am not, however, holding my breath for some particular outcome in any event.

Yes, I think looking at the calendar day can be misleading due to the international date line... What I believe the quakes may correlate to is the actual position of the earth as it goes round the sun. Based on its orbit, not based on the spinning of the earth itself... Although the spin of the earth could effect WHERE the quake will happen... And the earths orbit around the sun could effect WHEN it happens. I wonder where Mexico was pointed during the quake.. I didn't see what time it occured... Dangit... But it seems it was probably pointed more toward the sun than away from it. I'll have to check into that... And where Japan, etc was pointed during its quake. I'm smelling a cosmic source here for these particular quakes that follow the 188+/- cycle...

I am not certain of the precise minute the event occurred but it was during the noon hour of our local time. We have not yet gone into Daylight Saving Time here and our time change does not occur until the first of April this year but, yes, the earthquake happened right at mid-day as we were directly facing the sun.

If you are suggesting it is curious that this quake occurred at the time and day of a planned emergency exercise drill I would agree. It is still curious that the 9/11 events occurred while a military drill was going one, one simulating a very similar occurrence to what did happen that day. That kind of muddied the waters for those involved in the exercise for knowing what was a drill and what was actually occurring at that time. The first news reports I got on the Mexico quake had details about a quake in the state of Chiapas which is where the drill was taking place. I found it curious at that time that there was confusion about the epicenter of the quake when Guerrero and Chiapas are a good distance apart.

If one was to venture further that the quake was manufactured by artificial means, which I understand there is now technology that could possibly do so, then it might be curious that a remote epicenter was chosen. If such a thing might have been directed at Mexico City where massive destruction could have occurred then I would say their aim was a bit off, luckily.
