Is The Number Of Earthquakes Increasing? Why The 5.8 Virginia Earthquake Might Just Be A Preview Of Things To Come

Is the number of earthquakes increasing?  Are major earthquakes becoming more frequent?  In the aftermath of the magnitude-5.8 earthquake in Virginia, a whole lot of people are asking those questions.  All over the mainstream media, “experts” are coming on and assuring the public that all of this is “normal” and that the number of earthquakes is not actually increasing.  The USGS continues to insist that the frequency of major earthquakes has been “fairly constant” and that there is no reason for alarm.  But is that really the truth?  In this article, you will be presented with evidence that the number of earthquakes is definitely increasing.  Please approach the evidence with an open mind.  The truth is that this year we are on pace to have more than twice the number of major earthquakes than we did just 10 years ago.  The mainstream media is much more interested in keeping people calm than it is in telling them the truth.  Our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and the magnitude-5.8 Virginia earthquake that we just witnessed might just be a preview of things to come.

The Virginia earthquake is already being called a “once a century” earthquake for the east coast. The earthquake was felt from Georgia all the way up to Ottawa, Canada.  It was felt as far west as Cleveland, Ohio.  It prompted the evacuation of congressional buildings and the Pentagon.  The earthquake actually cracked the Washington Monument and now it is closed indefinitely for repairs.

But that was not the only major seismic event in the U.S. that day.  A magnitude-5.3 earthquake rattled the area along the Colorado/New Mexico border.  That was the largest earthquake that region had seen in more than 40 years.

If these were isolated incidents, that would be one thing.  Unfortunately, major earthquakes are popping up all over the globe with alarming frequency.  In fact, a magnitude-7.0 earthquake just struck northern Peru.

But just because we have had some notable earthquakes this year does not mean that earthquakes are increasing in frequency.

What do the hard numbers tell us?

Well, when you take a look at the numbers it quickly becomes clear that the number of earthquakes is increasing.

Back in 2001, the world had 1361 earthquakes of magnitude-5.0 or greater.  This year, we are on pace to have over 2800.  In fact, the number of major earthquakes this year is going to be the highest number we have seen during this past decade by far.

So how do the “experts” explain this away?

The following is what the USGS has to say about why it seems that the number of earthquakes is increasing….

We continue to be asked by many people throughout the world if earthquakes are on the increase. Although it may seem that we are having more earthquakes, earthquakes of magnitude 7.0 or greater have remained fairly constant.

A partial explanation may lie in the fact that in the last twenty years, we have definitely had an increase in the number of earthquakes we have been able to locate each year. This is because of the tremendous increase in the number of seismograph stations in the world and the many improvements in global communications.

Are you buying that?

I’m not.

Yes, technology may enable us to detect more earthquakes than we did 50 or 100 years ago, but there has not been a quantum leap in earthquake detection technology during this past decade.

But what we have seen during this past decade is a definite rise in the number of major earthquakes.

The following chart of earthquakes magnitude-5.0 or greater over the last decade comes to us from americandailyherald.com….

Please keep in mind that this year (2011) we are on pace to have more than 2800 earthquakes of magnitude-5.0 or greater.  Once that number is included, the chart will look even more dramatic.

The following chart shows the number of earthquakes having a magnitude of 6.0 or greater since 1973.  This chart comes from dlindquist.com, and it includes data for this year.  As you can see, the number of magnitude-6.0 earthquakes for this year is “off the charts” because we are on pace for well over 200….

So after viewing these charts, how can anyone still deny that the number of major earthquakes is increasing?

But that is exactly what all of the “experts” on the mainstream news are going to keep on doing.

In the end, do your own research and find out for yourself.  Don’t let the television do your thinking for you.

The reality is that we live in very unstable times.  Unfortunately, the increase in the number of earthquakes appears to be part of a larger trend.  So far in 2011, natural disasters of all types seem to be increasing in frequency.

We all remember what happened earlier this year in Japan.  That was an event that was absolutely unprecedented in modern Japanese history.

But we have also seen a lot of other weird geological events around the globe so far this year.

For example, a few weeks ago a series of earthquakes caused an entire river to disappear in Costa Rica.

In addition, gigantic cracks and massive sinkholes have been appearing all over the earth.  Nobody is quite sure why this is happening.

There are all sorts of theories about why the planet seems to be becoming more unstable, but you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that this is not a good trend and that we should all be preparing for the worst.

In the United States, there is quite a bit of evidence that the New Madrid fault is starting to come to life.  If you live in the middle part of the country, you should really get educated about the history of the New Madrid fault and about what a major earthquake in that area could mean for you.

There is a whole lot to be concerned about on the west coast as well.  More earthquakes occur along the “Ring of Fire” than anywhere else, and there is a lot of evidence that we are starting to see the “Ring of Fire” become a lot more active.

So the next time an “expert” appears on television assuring you that earthquakes are not becoming more frequent and that you don’t have anything to be concerned about, don’t be so quick to believe that person.

The cold, hard reality of the matter is that the number of earthquakes is increasing and our planet is becoming increasingly unstable.

Yes, it is a bit frightening, but wouldn’t you rather know the truth?

    Michael-I think you may have watched too many earthquake movies, however, do you remember the Irwin Allen earthquake movie back in the 1970′s?

    Pretty cool.

    • gifted art

      Obviously you need to research this information further. I have done this research and this article is dead on…I have counted monthly the earthquakes worldwide and it is unbelievable. Then watch the news and nothing on it about these facts. Volcano’s increased as well. Hurricane’s as we see on the east coast right now. Knowledge is the beginning of wisdom.

      • gifted art

        This is to Gary2; not the article

      • Gary2

        I feel like I am wearing orthopedic shoes because I stand corrected!

        Thanks.

  • http://lastdayrapture.blogspot.com/ TK

    Wow!

    I live in the panhandle of Florida. We have to deal with hurricanes and lightning storms. If we start to get earthquakes as well, I just might move!

    It is scary how many earthquakes we are having this year, it is almost as if the world is sick and tired of all the fighting that is going on between the nations. Maybe we should take the hint:)

    • A.S.

      No TK, G-d Almighty is tired of our sins.

      If only every country in the world were to have honest politicians, just and moral citizens (following G-d’s laws INSTEAD OF the ultra-liberal-globalist-elite values (e.g. gay marriage, abortion, adultery) ), and no unjust and illegal wars, then maybe all the earthquakes, floods, hurricanes/tornadoes, and other weird natural phenomenon would die down.

      But we all know that is not going to happen. Who in America, for instance, wants to give up being a couch potato pig, watching 5+ hours of T.V. per day that shows nothing but immoral behavior, following the example of such behavior by going out and being promiscuous with anything that moves, having a free abortion on demand, and feeling no shame at the end of the day?

      People on this site need to reprimand the sinners. They are not truly evil, just misled, lied to, and manipulated by the evil ultra-liberal-global-elite that such behavior is OK. So, maybe if we help one soul at a time, thing like earthquakes will stop one at a time.

      • http://www.povertylinejournal.blogspot.com/ the optimist

        Oh bulls**t. I don’t need reprimanding from YOU. Judge not, lest you be judged.

        If there’s any conspiracy afloat its among the ultra conservative global elite who control the money systems for their benefit : )

        Stop pointing your finger at anyone but yourself!

        • Robert Oculus

          You have misunderstood the meaning of Matthew 7:1 (“Judge not, lest you be judged”). You seem to think it means “don’t judge people”. It doesn’t. It means “judge people by the same standards by which you wish to be judged.” Passing judgment on the deeds and words of others is entirely compatible with Christian belief. I have every right to judge you. You, in turn, have the right to judge me.

          Since your grasp of Scripture seems weak, I’d suggest that you not use it to back up your assertions, lest someone ridicule you in a public forum, as I am doing.

          It sounds like you do need a reprimand.

        • David

          A.S. did not reprimand the optimist. In matter of fact, A.S. showed concern for a group of people who he considered “misled”.

          As for the optimist’s bible thumping:
          http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%207:1-6&version=KJV

          Matthew 7:1-6 — 1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again… 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. 6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

          Helping others see & repent of sins still occurs, after one sees & repents of their own.

          Judgment is upon all of us, by G-d’s standard. There is no immunity from G-d’s Judgment, because another’s sorry condition. (the optimist is not immune because of the approach of A.S.)

          Jesus discoursed on hypocrisy, not license to sin — it was a call to Holiness.

          According to Jesus, in optimist’s expanded Bible section, one must judge what is holy, what are perls, who the dogs are, and who are the swine.

          Suggesting Jesus’ words are a license to sin, without rebuke, by bashing others (with a section of The Bible taken out of context) is clearly trampling upon His Words.

          G-d called the people of Nineveh to repent through whale-puke covered Jonah… A.S. might not have broached the topic of Sin as as others may have appreciated, but A.S. should be commended for his concern of fellow human beings.

        • http://lastdayrapture.blogspot.com/ TK

          @ the optimist

          The verse you quoted is out of context. It was God almighty who said “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

          If there is no preaching against sin, there is no repentance, and without repentance, there is no salvation.

          It is because of the “hirelings” in the pulpit who do not want to ruffle an feathers by preaching against sin that we have a whole generation of sinners. Many people have a seared conscious, and can not see that they have sinned against a Holy God.

      • J Colin Vaughan

        I tell you, Jor-El, Krypton is merely shifting in its orbit!

      • O. Ryan Faust

        Your admonition is right on the money.

        The earth is the Lord’s . . . and it responds to the sinfulness of the people living upon it.

    Well it is all stated in the holy bible read it sometime

  • Suspicious

    Great article, but you should have left out

    “In addition, gigantic cracks and massive sinkholes have been appearing all over the earth. Nobody is quite sure why this is happening.”

    The several of the sinkholes were formed due to mining, others from ice ages, all have known reasons.

    The cracks are explained in the link, if you even read it.

    • http://endoftheamericandream.com Brian Dougan

      Dear Suspicious:

      Respectfully; there may be plausible explanations for the sinkholes and cracks appearing on the earth. (The Iceage??) Why now?? However; one cannot explain the appearance of all these severe physical phenomena occurring together; in such a short period. Let’s list a few of them: Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, cracks in the earth, sinkholes, droughts, floods, cold, heat, tsunamis. Also; why did so many animals, birds, and fish die en masse? Something; or Someone; is beginning to shake the earth.

      Then add the following:

      Although not mentioned in your letter; how do you explain the simultaneous increase of pathological social phenomena: The world-wide financial disaster; unprecedented in its scope. Rioting, killings, the Middle-East cauldron that’s ready to explode….The world wide increase in anti-semitism and bloody violence. Rioting. Compare all this to life five or ten years ago. This is high-pressure stuff.

      Something unprecedented is happening. It’s not just cracks and sinkholes. The whole world is beginning to convulse.

      • J.M.

        @Brian

        I agree with you, however you took one thing out of context, which is anti-semitism. That’s the least in the long list of problems we are about to face in the next month or years, believe me my friend.

        God Speed.

      • O. Ryan Faust

        Brian, you said “how do you explain the simultaneous increase of pathological social phenomena: The world-wide financial disaster; unprecedented in its scope. Rioting, killings, the Middle-East cauldron that’s ready to explode….The world wide increase in anti-semitism and bloody violence. Rioting.”

        It has been explained in an unbelievable book about Bible prophecy. Here’s the link:

    the planet is not increasingly unstable, it has always been unstable. there is nothing frightening about earthquakes.

      unless you’re in the middle of one!

  • Guido

    I thought they had been saying for years that the Ring of Fire was coming back to life.
    The joke I heard yesterday-the quake was centered on a little-known anomaly, Bush’s Fault.
    We had a quake in MD last July, so this isn’t a total surprise.
    I’m very curious to see if there are more Mid-Atlantic quakes.

  • http://www.placeofrefuge2012.com Sheila

    I was very skeptical about what I read last spring, it was a prediction that between Aug and Nov that comet Elenin was going to cause earthquakes in places not normally associated with earthquake activities.

    I’M NO LONGER SKEPTICAL !!!

    • truthseeker

      It’s not comet Elenin — it’s much worse than that! Research Nibiru and keep an open mind. People will ridicule you but you will be informed. Surround yourself with those you love, and prepare.

  • onecansay

    Due to the fact that the human condition cannot fathom time and space, has had history denied, and seems to be in a perpetual state of induced fear is it no wonder most seem to be running around as if in a madhouse.

    This planet, heck, this whole universe is dynamic and ever changing. The one thing that is constant is change.

    There are cycles, just like in electricity. We attempt to survive in an electric universe yet most do not even realize this fact due to knowledge hidden from us.

    The largest problem with man is that he has let himself allow others to think for him. Those OTHERS also accentuate these natural occurances to further agendas most cannot comprehend.

    This has led to the quickening of retardation of humans.

    I have found that most cannot look at themselves and SEE where the REAL(ality) problem manifests itself.

    In peace.

    Matt 24 says that in the latter days “There shall be earthquakes in diverse places.” The Greek context means increasing in number & frequency.

    It’s all happening because the biblical prophecies MUST BE FULFILLED. Things will become more intense because we have past the point of no return. God gave us the chance for repentance, but we have flipped Him off. There is nothing but the worst suffering coming upon this earth!

    • O. Ryan Faust

      techstuf:
      The world cannot possibly be at the pouring of the 4th bowl of wrath for 2 reasons:
      A. “Christians aren’t appointed unto wrath”. The 7 bowls contain the wrath of God, and Christians are still here, so it just ain’t so.
      B. The first four seals have been opened, we’re in the events of the fifth seal right now, but the sixth hasn’t happened yet. Elenin/Nibiru might fulfill it on the 28th, but the future is always speculation.

      Here’s a good book about the prophecies being fulfilled today: http://www.scribd.com/doc/58351339/THE-GATES-OF-HELL

  • Randy

    The USGS has done a little redefining over the years. I am not sure exacty how long ago they did this, but they use to define a “Major quake” as 5.0 and higher. I believe it was about 15 years or so ago when they raised that to 7.0.
    So when they say there has not been an increase in major quakes, they are actually hiding the truth….
    Anyone with a shred of common sense knows that earthquakes are increasing in severity and frequency. The birthpangs are WELL under way.

  • http://yahoo Mike from Toronto Kanada

    …the increase in earthquakes,tornados, typhoons,UFO sightings etc. has nothing to do with the second coming of Elvis or Jim Morrison! The American founding fathers, such as Thomas Jefferson,Thomas Paine and others (Napolean,Bertrand Russell,Friedriche Nietzche,Sigmund Freud,Sir Edward Gibbon et al.) all said that JESUS CHRIST never existed!!!
    Earthquakes are just tectonic plates rubbing against each other and the crust of the earth will always be unstable! Look at Krakatoa in 1884! Santorini in 1963 or SanFran in 1906!
    America was “moral” and law abiding in 1906,so why did the SanFran earthquake happen?
    God has no more to do with the rise or fall of America or the fall of Rome!!!

    • http://endoftheamericandream.com Brian Dougan

      Mike: Why do you doubt? Serious historical scholars do not question the historicity of Jesus of Nazareth. His birth, life, crucifixion, and resurrection are all well attested–by Jews, Gentiles, believers, unbelievers and skeptics. It’s part of the historical record. This link will give any interested person a starting point for research:

      http://www.christiancourier.com/articles/26-the-historicity-of-jesus-christ

      His tomb was empty on Easter Morning. Many opponents of Christianity have tried–unsuccessfully–to explain it away. General Lew Wallace; who wrote “Ben-Hur;” counts as one well known example. The anvil remains; the hammers have worn away.

      Put God to the test: Many highly educated, intelligent professionals have embarked on a “crusade” to disprove the Deity/Historicity of Christ. Their labors and painstaking research led them to an unexpected conclusion–they became believers (followers of Christ) based upon the overwhelming evidence.

      Read the thought provoking book by former atheist and lawyer/journalist Lee Strobel; “The Case for Christ.” It’s a thorough, well documented compilation of interviews with respected academics. (An investigation into the historical reliability of the evidences for Christ.) It’s not a dry read; I don’t think you will be disappointed.

      He not only existed; according to the New Testament scriptures; He lives. Don’t take my word for it. Examine the evidence, and open your heart and mind. You will be in good company, and be able to answer Jesus’ question to the apostle Peter: Who do YOU say that I am? (My emphasis.)

      Your brains will not fall out. You will live a New Life; empowered, protected, and guided by the Light of the World.

      • http://endoftheamericandream.com Brian Dougan

        You may find this additional information helpful. (The following two paragraphs were taken from an Easter article published on the website “InfoQuest.”)

        “Several people have tried to disprove the Resurrection:
        For example, Lew Wallace, a famous general and literary genius, was a
        known atheist. For two years, Mr. Wallace studied in the leading
        libraries of Europe and America, seeking information that would forever
        destroy Christianity. While writing the second chapter of a book he
        planned to write, he suddenly found himself on his knees crying out to
        Jesus, “My Lord and my God!” Because of solid indisputable evidence, he
        could no longer deny that Jesus Christ was the Son of God. Later, Lew
        Wallace wrote the book Ben Hur, one of the greatest English novels ever
        written concerning the time of Christ.

        Did Jesus really resurrect?
        Simon Greenleaf, who was head of the Harvard Law School for some 30
        years, was once challenged by his students to apply his “Laws of Legal
        Evidence” (which are still a standard reference for courts today) to an
        investigation of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. After a thorough
        study, Greenleaf concluded that Jesus’ resurrection was supported by
        better and fuller evidence than any other event of antiquity, including
        the Battle of Waterloo. He wrote a book on his investigation called “The
        Testimony of The Four Evangelists,” which is still available in most
        University legal libraries.”

      Mike:

      The Bible says that God allows the rain to fall on he wicked and the righteous.

      You are correct in saying that these earthquakes are not necessarily from God, but, you are incorrect about Jesus Christ.

      Just one Bible proves that Jesus Christ existed.
      Your conscious proves that Jesus Christ exists.
      Your dna proves that Jesus Christ exists.
      This world proves that Jesus Christ exists.

      One day, every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

      You can be willing to bow the knee now, or you will be forced to later.

  • Yohan

    Nobody mentioned the “expando planet theory”.

    Look it up. New **HUGE** cracks in the Earth (Michigan, Ethiopia), 2000 year dorment volcanoes now venting steam and ash (California), and lava (ocean floor near Oregon). And this increase in 5.0 and higher quakes (others have been doing charts on this for over 2 years and have written about it).

    The point is – BE PREPARED. The Govment might not be able to provide **ANY** help to you.

    There are other things that may happen (Solar flare kills the power for 10 years, etc.) — and preparing will get you through about 99% of anything that happens.

    Beans and bullets, water, seeds…….. etc.

    Survival of the fittest? Or, the most prepared?

    Don’t forget, KNOWLEDGE is part of preparing.

    We are due not for a 100 year event, but a 4000 year event, a true, comprehensively global awakening to a cosmic eviction.

  • Hemlock

    Yes, Earth is having more earthquakes and volcanic activity — AND what appears to be global climate change. The reason? The Earth’s rotational axis was formerly at 26 degrees. It’s now over 50 degrees and changing daily. See divulgence.net Out galaxy is merging/colliding with the Andromeda galaxy. There won’t be anything left of Earth except space dust.

    Never mind the fact that the global warming crown neglected to tell you any of this — neither did your government.

    Your scale is to smal.

    Standing in a field, one could be forgiven, to think that the earth is flat and that oneself is motionless. While the thruth of the matter is; that we are speeding along at an unknown thousands of miles an hour, with a super massive ball of rock hanging over us, below our feet.

    To measure anything as old as our planet (4,5 billion +\- years), in ten’s of years is just ridiculous.

    Let’s do the numbers:

    Longest timeline in article – 1973-2011= 38 years
    Age of subject (earth) = 4 500 000 000 years

    So to get a number we can work with: 38/4500000000 = 0,00000000844444

    To put this in human terms:

    Life expectancy (my own optimistic assumption) = 80yrs = 2 522 880 000 sec.
    Measured time interval to obtain a trend = 0, 00000000844444%

    So how long would the aouthour of this article have to determining the state of a human: 2522880000×0,00000000844444= 21,3 sec of observation.

    Me, I prefer that my doctor spend a wee bit longer in my precense, before making such bold statements, as in the article above.

    Yes, the numebr of earthquakes is increasing globally. There have been more then 2000 earthquake globally in the last few days alone. For more information visit dutchsinse on YouTube. Dutch is a geologist who has been keeping track of earthquakes and then some.

    Well said. Change IS the only constant…..an yet we constantly try to control and suppress the ever changing world around us. I’d have to say “THEY” have done a pretty good job too.

    So, I believe these things that are happening at ever increasing rates are here to help us change. Unpleasantly, sad to say.

    We are about to experience true terror. The Earth is changing, and unfortunately humans do not bode well during these times of growth and expansion.

    But then again what else would it take to wake from our folly?

    Prepare the best you can. Make peace with your spirit and love those important to you deeply.
    As it has been said, “Be the change you want to see in the world”.

    I personally want to be on the other side of all of this chaos….when the dust begins to settle and we are trying to figure out how to do things differnetly. It’s why I am here on this planet. For this time right now.

    I will be courageous and just. I will provide comfort to those in need, and strong for those weak. I will act with morality and think with common sense, for the whole of us, not just MEself. I will love all (as I do now and always have)with the same fervor as my kin. Promise.

    Me thinks the the joke is……this IS heaven.

    And they have led us to believe it gets better after you die…hmmmmmmmm. I dunno, I think being here on this big blue marble is pretty amazing and awesome!

    Seriously… a whole article on the increasing number of earthquakes and no mention of HAARP?

    Technology that was developed by inventor Nikola Tesla was applied to build a prototype for the Star Wars Defense System under Reagan. But our leaders have put it to use to affect the weather, including causing earthquakes.

    You can watch Jesse Ventura’s HAARP report from Dec, 2010. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62ZtPqfvpu8

    The frequency of an earthquake is 2.5Hz. Here’s a picture of HAARP in Alaska beaming a Billion Watt 2.5Hz signal out in the hours before the Japan earthquake. The signal stopped shortly after the earthquake happened in the morning.
    http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-L_wgMETIAkc/TXnafg7fDzI/AAAAAAAACEc/Sp–VtEN1Zo/s1600/latest-Bx.gif

    When you beam that much energy directly into a known fault, the 2.5 Hz harmonic frequency can cause the plates to move and generate an earthquake.

  • Magdiel

    I think it’s not coincidence the fact that natural disasters are in the increase in this nation and around the world as at the same time morality and fear of God is lacking.Let us repent from all of our iniquities and transgressions and return to God and beg Him have mercy on us!!

    Wow, We had an earthquake earlier this week, we are in the middle of a hurricane as I write this. It’s a great friday night though, I am watching the Packers/colts, Nascar, and the weather channel. I just hope the power stays on.

  • Robert Walker

    In Arkansas we measure many more earthquakes now because we finally installed sensor stations. Our Oil and Gas Commission has banned deep injection into wells near a fault. It was probably causing small earthquakes. Companies in our state have been exploiting the Fayetteville Shale by fracking. Fracking is being used to exploit oil and gas reserves all over the country.

  • Dave

    Here’s some more food for thought. Look up ‘Hydrofracturing’ or ‘Fracking’. I would also highly recommend watching the movie ‘Gasland’. Excellent expose’ on the criminal activity of Halliburton and the oil & gas industry.

    In a nut shell, Oil & gas companies have been messing with major shale formations deep under ground, injecting literally hundreds of poisonous chemicals along with seismic charges to fracture these formations and extract natural gas. Not that natural gas is bad, but the problem is that this activity destabilizes the fault lines and also destroys the environment. There are thousands of reports throught the nation of water, air and ground contamination due to this process. Arkansas is just one example of many states where these companies have been doing massive drilling and they have seen major earthquake increases and mysterious wildlife deaths as well, but this is going on coast to coast.

    Hallibuton and these other drilling companies where made exempt from all environmental protection laws during the Cheney/Bush era. Funny how that worked since Cheney used to be the CEO of Halliburton and made his fortune there.

    Perhaps the answer to the increasing numbers of natural disasters simply lies in the constant shifting of of the magnetic poles as well as the constant flux or change in the earth’s magnetic field.

    Like its inhabitants planet earth is constantly changing. That is the nature of things although unlike humans the earth doesn’t try to resist change. Rather it simply accepts it and keeps spinning along. We will and have had to adapt to these changes but I am certain that the human spirit can and will prevail.

    On a side note, while I enjoy reading alternative media sites for their more obvious truths, I believe it would be more encouraging to most people if more evidence was provided in support of any stories that can be interpreted as potential doomsday scenarios.

    Our way of life as We know it can end but its demise has been predicted many times in the past decades and yet We still remain and for the most part thrive. This is our birthright and will continue to be so as long as We believe in the essential goodness of mankind.

    Yes, it appears evident that these earthquakes are increasing in frequency and intensity..sort of like contractions for the birth pangs of a woman in labor…

    I live here in Southern MD and we have the occasional hurricane and tornado however the EQ the other day was my first. Many on the west coast may scoff at us for our reactions, but I found it very unnerving to see my floor and ceiling twisting in opposite directions…I guess I’ll just chalk it up to another of my “normalcy biases” to go by the wayside.

  • T A Cooper

    Great article. The USGS do a great job: But I think their jobs are at stake to deviate by upsetting the public. Want a look at something they are avoiding? Check out the youtube article titled – New Principal Earthquake Forcasting Tool. It shows four segments operating on a cycle. There are a total of ten. They all are on the San Andreas fault system. The next time one is possible for a 6.5> is 2013. This “tool” is 100% accurate for 95% of a cycle showing when they don’t go off. The remainder is when the big ones can go off.

    Well…. when looking at the data, a skeptic like myself may have to reconsider his views on the idea of earthquakes increasing.

    Great report.

  • Jim Agnew

    I am an earthquake scientist. I look at lists of earthquakes for a living. I can assure you that the number of damaging earthquakes is not increasing in frequency. The number of seismic instruments deployed has been increasing rapidly, which explains the apparent increase in detectable seismicity. Damaging quakes have been occurring on our planet for billions of years and will likely continue for billions more. There are no more now than there ever were, but we know about more of them now because we have more instruments measuring them. There is a natural variability in the number of annual quakes, but you would need to look at thousands of years’ worth of them to detect any pattern of increasing or decreasing frequency, and we don’t have that history to check, because the science of seismology is only slightly more than 125 years old. Before about 1887, there were no reliable seismic monitoring instruments, so all we have to rely on is anecdotal stories of quakes from populated areas, not the best way to determine the earth’s seismicity level. Any reputable seismologist will tell you the same thing.

      James:

      I know that this is the politically correct thing for seismologists to say.

      I am just not buying it.

      Perhaps if you had addressed the hard data in the article you may have had a chance of convincing some people.

      • Jim Agnew

        It’s not the “politically correct” thing to say, it’s the truth as far as we can discern it. You are, of course, welcome to believe any foolish thing you want to, but that doesn’t make it so. The “hard data” you refer to is too short in time period to be meaningful, like determining the health of a person by listening to one heart beat.

    Proof earthquakes are increasing !!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSzyZHNjQpk

  • Bill S

    Magnitude 5.0-5.9 earthquakes are VERY common and they do very little damage. You have to look at 7.0 or higher to see quakes that do a lot of damage. Yes, there’s been 1769 quakes of 5.0-5.9 but they don’t matter much. To keep it simple, as you go down the earthquake scale the number of earthquakes increases by a factor of 10. So quakes of 8.0 or higher still average only 1 per year. 7.0-7.9 about 14, 6.0-6.9 about 150. And so on.

    http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqarchives/year/eqstats.php

  • Ellen Draper

    Bill S is absolutely correct! This article focuses on 5.0+ earthquakes and the USGS statistics focus on 7.0 and above. No, seismic technology probably hasn’t leaped in advancement over the last 20 years but the worldwide distribution of seismic technology HAS! This means that even third world countries are contributing data to the complete understanding of earthquakes around the globe and our data is no longer just limited to wealthier countries. So the presence of seismic activity is much larger than what we had 20 years ago and thus, fearmongering websites such as this are able to weave fear among the faint of heart.

    • Teamonger

      Ellen, your comment appears right on the money.

      The figure of 1361 of 5.0 or greater earthquakes in 2001 appears to be the same data that USGS has, so that’s a good start.

      In the article, it says “This year, we are on pace to have over 2800″. Have to take issue with that, because USGS data shows 2233 such quakes thru Nov 8, which calculates to about a 2600 pace. Admittedly, that may just mean the pace has slowed since the article was published in August…

      The article reads, “the number of magnitude-6.0 earthquakes for this year is “off the charts” because we are on pace for well over 200″. But their blue-line chart appears to be off for the 1990s; the USGS data shows 203 mag-6.0 quakes in 1995, also “off the chart”. Their 1990s numbers are lower across the board than what the USGS tables show.

      The article reads, “there has not been a quantum leap in earthquake detection technology during this past decade.” Well no, but the worldwide distribution of seismic detection technology has grown steadily, especially in third-world countries. There has not been a “quantum leap” in earthquakes detected either. The charts and tables basically show a gradual upward drift, which would seem consistent with gradual improvement in the reporting of earthquakes.

  • Asad

    Well if you are bound to derive a result from 50 years data, it is quite reasonable to believe that the trend in on an increase. But my question is that what about the trends of unrecorded era??? or when man was living in caves or even before that.

    Just look at the history of this earth, its age, all the cosmic pressures it sustained since its birth one can very well imagine that it has a capability to sustain these pressures because it is built that way.

    Yes if it was not built in the way it is, there could be a strong chance that there had no life on it. it was structured in a way to nurture life on it.

    Elenin/ Niburu is scheduled to pass through our solar system by the end of this year and beginning of 2012. it is expected, as many scientists say, that this earth will experience strange phenomenons during this journey. some also say that it is already exhibiting signs in the shape of increasing earthquakes, tsunamis, thunderstorms and a lot more may come. But eventually this will end and life come to on a normal course as ever but for human beings a lot could be changed till it is over. so don’t be disappointed and keep your fingers cross and think about humanity and its betterment. May GOD be with us all the time. Ameen.

  • Rebel

    Bill S and Ellen Draper, it doesn’t matter, that magnitude 5,0-5,9 do minor damage. More important is that number of earthquakes from that range is absolutely soaring. And look at the increasing number of sinkholes and earth cracks showing up all over the world. Clearly something is very wrong with our planet.

    They don’t want to admit earthquakes are increasing because that would be admitting the Christians are right and that Matthew 24 is coming true for our time. The end is near, do you know Jesus? Read Matthew 24.

    I strongly believed that major earthquakes is increasing in this decade. It has been predicted by Jesus Christ himself in Mathew 24 that earthquakes will increase its intensity and frequency as His returns is coming soon. So be alert and prepare yourself by accepting Him as your personal Lord and Savior so that you will have peace of heart, mind and soul. Read the gospel narratives.

  • Ris

    The author and some of you folks have got to be kidding. You think things are so dire right now. Are you so puffed up that you can rate the “horrific” happenings at the moment as truth that we’re doomed? Have you ever studied the history of the earth as we know it? It’s been “doomed” many times, whether humans were around or not. The earth has never stopped moving. We live on a thin piece of crust on top of an humongous ball of fire. Think about what will happen if it decides to really tourque up like it has in the past. We’d be dead, so why would you care? Jesus and the bible are “so last year”. John was on opium when he wrote his little story. We are but fleeting molecules over the earth, if that. God is punishing no one.
