With all of these earthquake predictions I have to do a little warning of my own, and this is for those who warn us of "imminent" earthquakes...
Given the litigious society we live in, a few years ago, about 5 or so, I knew someone who made such a prediction. This persons track record was over
85% --and probably like the "Human Seismograph" person whose wife is here on ATS.
Anyway, the prediction was wrong --no earthquake -nothing was moving and nothing was stirring, not even a mouse.
The person who made the earthquake prediction was taken to court by a number of people, and they won. Why? Because of the strong wording the
"Prophet" used, that caused a few people to up and move to a totally new state! That's right, these people up and moved and changed their whole
lives because of the warning --because of nothing. Some will say "what idiots they were for moving," but then why say the warning to begin with?
And, you know what? I agree and I'm glad the person got sued. Let's leave those strongly worded prophecies to the pros who have access to the right
kind of equipment --the very kinds of equipment that should be used, instead of a "hunch" or a :"feeling" or even a so-called "Dream."
You have to remember --words can move mountains! When you say to a co-worker or just one family member a sentence that contains, let's say 8 words,
that one sentence, those 8 words are then told to a few more people, and so on, and so on. The ripples in the ocean become waves because of the
So, can we PLEASE drop the "dramastic" (my word, lol) prophecies down a couple pegs? Because let's face it --your feeling, or hunch or dream in
all actuality won't come true and if it does, it's because of the Vegas odds.
Before you use words like "Imminent" or "there's an earthquake coming for sure!", please ask yourself, is the world going to benefit in a
positive way from my words? Am I saying these words to warn people, to frighten people, or am I creating a "I said it first and before it happened"
boast that no one will toast to anyway?
All it is is fear mongering sprinkled with a little hope that it does happen so the bragging can begin. And, that's sick, but then again, there are
so many people out there that are just DYING for something BIG to happen because they're bored and they're looking for this mega quake to happen so
they're entertained. Again, sick.
A new category needs to be created.
