    I see one big event in an otherwise ordinary set of events.

    The main reason one might think that there is an increase in the number of earthquakes is that we are better at recording them. We have more instruments to record seismic activity and these instruments work with greater precision than ever before. So now we record earthquakes that had previously gone undetected.  100 years ago a minor quake in the middle of the Pacific ocean was not counted. Now we record all of them. There are over 55 a day world wide, on average. Source with good links to more info.

    That is undoubtly true but we are concentrating on population centers and the increasing magnitude of the earthquakes, like 9.4, off the scale! (actually the Richter scale can accommodate a lot more, scary)

    One item doesn’t make a trend.  The increase in severity of earthquakes in the population centres could be due to an increase in the number and size of population centres in general, leading to an expansion of civilisation into earthquake zones.

    Meanwhile in a gazillion galaxies with exploding stars and quasars and blackholes all going through cycles, yet here we supposedly have the jealous god of the Jews causing supposedly more ‘earth’ quakes to communicate with his ‘children’ – And it’s working ! Hurray.

    Hurray.

    when two black holes or two neutron stars collide it causes a space-time quake.

    I think black holes are where all the dinosaurs wen’t when the bible was being written.

    Yes that was the jest of the article but it’s not correlative to magnitude which is trending up.

    I think you’re seeing what you want to see.

    Scientist  would disagree with you, but they write it off as mere change:

    “Large earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude have struck the Earth at a record high rate since 2004 but scientists have analyzed the historical record and found that the increasein seismic activity was likely due to mere chance.”

    However that is an arm wave unless they support that claim with models based on the constitutive equations

    If you don’t like science, change it.  I can’t help thinking you’re living in la-la land.

    The increase since 1980 exceeds population growth. And the number of 8 magnitude earthquakes unprecedented.

    wtf, His flood didn’t work? Or was that just for giggles? As for quakes, when do you get to decide what you’re seeing is not just a natural swarm that will end soon?

    And the Satan meme, God just lets him do whatever he wants? Lets mothers, babies and children suffer… or makes them suffer? Why!? Or is that why he made us… and let Satan rule?

    And so we’re supposed to believe in him, when it takes an unusually intelligent person to find some kind of sense in all the haze of scriptures written by mere mortal, fallible humans?

    If God planned that whole game out for us, he’s quite the trickster.

    It would be nice if it is just a local swarm the problem is that the magnitude even amongst the local swarm has a unpresident 9.4 which is a upward trend and conforms to the prophecy.
    And the Satan meme, God just lets him do whatever he wants? Lets mothers, babies and children suffer… or makes them suffer? Why!?

    Let us therefore take heed to the warning. As blood was painted at the entrance in the time of Pharaoh to ward off death. Let faith and obedience paint everyone on the planet.
    Or is that why he made us… and let Satan rule?

    Satan’s power comes from our lack of faith and disobedience

     And so we’re supposed to believe in him, when it takes an unusually intelligent person to find some kind of sense in all the haze of scriptures written by mere mortal, fallible humans? If God planned that whole game out for us, he’s quite the trickster.

    We are suppose to have true prophets healers and evangelist but thanks to Rome and Constantinople, they have been martyred over the centuries as enemies of Mother Church with her Queen of Heaven Isthar (Astarte, Etc.) in the guise of Mary) that appeared to millions in Zeitoun Egypt.

    Michael, is this your strongest evidence? Do you imagine you have given any of us a moment of pause that you may be onto something?

    It has not escaped me that you fail to answer a great many questions. When you do answer it is in the context of your religious delusion.

    I wonder whether you would prefer to be disabused of the authenticity of prophecy or have unshakeable faith in a delusion.
