188 days debunked
Basically this list has all the precise 188 period dates, allowing for leap years, using as suggested the pivot point of Chile 2010.
The margin is impossibly large. If I said to you “If you walk under that bridge every 188 days a concrete block will fall off and hit you” you
would actually have only been hit 7 times out of the 218 – a mere 3.21% chance of actually having anything happen on the 188 day event date.
On the other hand if you had taken the advice and avoided the specific date you could have been hit 145 times depending on how random your passage

But then seeing as how those who adhere to the theory do so regardless of any logic, it would seem as though no amount of critical analysis is going
to change those closed minds. Funny thing is, they almost all claim to be the most open minded of folk and anyone else is the closed minded individual
if facts are invoked.
At first, I was intrigued by the theory as it certainly seemed to have some merit but after I looked more closely at it and filtered the notion with
information which was verifiable, it fell apart.
Two 8+s on the same day are undoubtedly unusual, but they are obviously part of the same seismic sequence; the second being an aftershock of the
has not had an aftershock in the M8 range, and that is
cause for concern considering the
that is angrily smoldering away over there.
Thankfully there seems to be little damage reported from these two M8 quakes (and their numerous aftershocks), so fare:
Indonesia is checking for damage and casualties but remarkably, no such reports had been received for several hours after the quakes, including in
Aceh province, the closest province and the area decimated by the disaster eight years ago. Many people are frightened for further tremors. People
want to stay alert because of the fear that more quakes are coming.
Indeed we are living in interesting times, no need to invent untenable theories that can easily be shown to be flimsily fabricated.
