It's a bit of a wobbly prophecy. Seeing as at least one of the speakers in those vids (I think 2nd one) says that we should listen to him and decide
if his words come from the Lord or not, then I'd have to wonder about a Lord who passes on messages with outdated terminology.
He mentions that earthquake that will be "magnitude 12.0 on the scale Richter", which is bothersome for several reasons. What's most bothersome is
that major organizations that report quakes (like eg USGS) don't use the Richter scale for larger quakes and have not done for -- oh, twenty to thirty
years I guess. They use the "moment magnitude" scale. One reason is that it's more precise than the Richter scale for larger events.
Yeah, I know, the MSM still refers to quakes "on the Richter scale" even when that's not the scale that's been commonly used to log and report them,
but they're ignorant. A prophet of the Lord is supposed to be reporting what he's told, and I'd hope that any Lord that knows about the Richter scale
would also know what we use now.
Secondly, a magnitude 12.0 seismic event (whether it's Richter or Moment Magnitude scale) due to a fault letting go is basically not gonna happen.
There's no fault in the world big enough. Okay, a very large bolide impact (rock from space) could generate shocks way beyond the biggest quake ever
mechanically recorded (magnitude 9.5 in Chile in 1960), but a 12.0? I dunno, folks. I have my doubts. If we got shakes that big, which would be worse
than 1,000 Japan quakes all at once, there would be a lot more to worry about that just Puerto Rico and the USA.
Kill millions on Puerto Rico, says this self-style prophet? Yeah well, if an impact event close by caused a 200-foot-high tsunami that could well be
the outcome, even if the concussion and heat from a large bolide strike didn't get everyone first, which it likely would. I guess the heat and
concussion kind of didn't get mentioned to this prophet.
As for the earth not rotating for three days, I agree with the comments so far. I heard that and thought -- umm, what?
Like, it stops and then
starts again? And some "experts" said this would happen? Experts in what? Stupidity?
Even assuming something managed to stop this planet rotating, then what is going to start it again? The forces need to bring this planet basically to
a dead stop would likely destroy it (or effectively kill everything on it except for microbes and some sea life and ummm, okay, roaches
), and much
the same would apply to starting it again.
These people are doing just what you're saying. This is doom porn of the highest order, for the simple reason that they are talking so much
unscientific bunk it's literally laughable.
Does this mean that a large space rock cannot strike somewhere near Puerto Rico? Nope, not at all. One could strike almost anywhere. And one that
could generate a tsunami 200 feet high (that moves out radially, of course, not in just one or two political directions
) is seriously bad news and
worse have happened in the past. But tying a natural event like that, which has happened before and likely will again on average once every 100
million years or so, to some nonsense about the planet stopping its rotation for three days, is utterly ridiculous.
