Earthquakes 2010

July 20, 2010

What in the world is up with all the earthquakes that we have been seeing lately?  Earthquakes are up dramatically in 2010 and there are no signs that the rate of large earthquakes is slowing down.  So is this increase in earthquakes significant?  Of course many of you already know that Jesus warned us in Matthew 24:7 that earthquakes would be one of the signs of the end times: “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.”  In addition, many who have studied the 2012 phenomenon are warning that we will be seeing increased geological instability as we approach that date.  So should we be bracing for the end of the world as we know it?  Well, not yet, but certainly the dramatic increase in earthquakes in 2010 has got to be a real concern for all of us.

The reality is that it seems like there is a major earthquake somewhere in the world almost every single day now….

*According to a preliminary report by the U.S. Geological Survey, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake shook British Columbia, Canada on Monday.

*A strong 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck Papua New Guinea on Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, around 30 minutes after a similar quake shook the same area.

*A magnitude 5.3 earthquake struck off the coast of Northeast Taiwan’s Ilan County on Sunday.

*The U.S. Geological Survey says that a 6.7 magnitude earthquake struck near Alaska at 9:56 p.m. Saturday and was centered in the Bering Sea about 930 miles west of Anchorage.

*The largest earthquake ever recorded near the capital rattled Washington, D.C. early last Friday.

*It was reported that a magnitude 6.5 earthquake hit near the coast of central Chile last Wednesday.

Are you starting to get the picture?

Magnitude 6 earthquakes are happening so frequently now that they don’t even really make headlines anymore.

The truth is that 2010 has been a really extraordinary year for earthquakes.

The massive quakes that caused so much damage in Haiti and Chile have captured most of the headlines this year, but those quakes are far from alone.  In fact, it was recently reported that earthquakes are up 151 percent in 2010.

That is a very substantial increase.  Earthquakes have been popping all over the “ring of fire”, but they have also been occurring in some very unusual and diverse places around the world as well….

A massive 7.5-magnitude earthquake recently struck under the Indian Ocean near India’s Nicobar and Andaman Islands.

-At least 400 people died and thousands were injured by a huge magnitude 6.9 earthquake that hit western China’s Qinghai province earlier this year.

Thousands of unsettling “ice quakes” have been detected on Washington’s Mount Rainier in 2010.

-A tsunami warning was issued for Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands and New Caledonia in the Pacific Ocean after a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck the area earlier this year.

-In just one week alone, there were over 2000 earthquakes in the region around California.

-There was one point when more than 100 earthquakes rattled the California-Mexico border region in just a few hours.

So could the “big one” strike the United States soon?

That is a legitimate question.

The truth is that scientists have been expecting the “big one” to hit California for a long time.  In fact, they say that California is actually overdue.

Other scientists are warning that we could soon see an absolutely massive earthquake along the New Madrid fault line in the center of the United States.

For much more on the threat that earthquakes pose to the U.S., please read the following articles that we published previously….

*Could The Gulf Of Mexico Oil Spill Cause A Massive Earthquake Along The New Madrid Fault Line?

*Will California Be The Next One To Be Hit With A Killer Quake?

Many skeptics are dismissing all of these earthquakes as a “coincidence” and are insisting that things will get back to “normal” very soon.

But will they?

    when your scientific materialist worldview is insufficient to account for the supernatural, you will be left to use the abstract to explain away what is about to happen in right in front of your eyes.

    but if you have eyes to see, then you can very easily verify that it’s all been written for you so that when it comes to pass you will glorify the one true God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob and quit worshiping yourself and your society.

    “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,

    and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are,

    so that no man may boast before God.” 1 Corinthians 1:27-29

    Do the voices in your head speak in Dr. Zeuss rhyme?

    Lets take your last statement: “Many skeptics are dismissing all of these earthquakes as a “coincidence” and are insisting that things will get back to “normal” very soon. But will they?”

    “Many skeptics” – perhaps people with actual knowledge and education?

    “all of these earthquakes” – no more than usual as traced over 100 years – (USGS)

    “coincidence” implies unusual synchronicity of events – there is absolutely nothing unusual about the size or frequency of recent seismic events

    “insisting that things will get back to normal very soon” – please provide once credible expert source that says things are NOT normal, and given that you won’t be able to, who is it that claims things will “get back to normal”, when there is nothing abnormal happening.

    “But will they?” (get back to normal) Yes, they will, because they never left normal in the first place.

    Opinion is one thing. Unfounded drivel such as this “article” is just delusional grandeur on the part of an ill-informed narcissist.

    or for those of you paranoid enough to think the USGS is involved in a conspiratorial cover-up =, just google “are there more earthquakes in 2010 than normal”

    I googled as suggested and the articles saying there aren’t more earthquakes than usual were all written months ago, before the gulf oil explosion. The USGS website for world earthquakes during the last 7 days was up to 834 on Friday! It’s usually under 200.

  • Acekard

    Will this trend continue ominously into 2012 I wonder? Haha

  • Lori

    Actually 2004 was very comparible to this years earth quakes. The media is reporting on more of them now because of all the hype of 2012. Here is a link with proof!

  • Eddie

    Well said T4C.

  • Stakka

    If we want to talk stats, let’s put this straight.

    Statistically speaking; religious people are less intelligent than those who are not.

    I’m pretty sure that answers any questions on this topic.

    Have an awesome day :)

    uhhhhmmm ii loveee yur blog && thee end of the worls is not gonna bee wheneverr yuu want it to happen it will be wheneever god wants to read the biblee && se wat it says pleasee<33

  • Jorge

    Unfortunately, this blog is spreading ignorance. Please advise, the bible was written by man and not a supernatural being. It was written by smart people trying to help the people cope with misery. The times back then were horrible for regular people. We should be thankful that we can eat when we want to and do whatever we want to whenever we want to. We are truly free. We should view the bible as a guideline of how to be a good fellow human being. Although, some of the subjects or now outdated. We should learn to change with the times and not be stuck on something that controls through emotions. We should look at real facts and not just what we see and think is happening. Things are usually deeper than what they seem on the outside. Peace everyone.

    on 27/9/2011 there MAY BE the biggest earthquake in human history

  • Jess

    This website is about the end of the world… it would have no purpose in promoting the facts about earthquakes… which is there is nothing abnormal about their occurrences even today … if it were called ‘the scientific facts about earthquakes you would have nothing to scare people with.
