    Earthquakes and hurricanes, oh my

    Many Americans are scratching their heads today wondering what in the world is going on with a rare earthquake hitting the East Coast to be followed ** a hurricane a few days later.

    It reminds us that our world can change very quickly.

    Things don't always stay the same.

    Occasionally God really does shake things up as a sign to us of the consequences of disobedience and indifference to our Creator.

    Yes, I really believe that.

    I welcome the ridicule that will inevitably come from a statement like that.

    It sounds like foolishness to anyone whose life is not centered around the Creator of the universe.

    There will always be mockers and scoffers, the Bible tells us.

    But there's an old saying that applies, "There are no atheists in foxholes."

    It's amazing what trials and tribulations can do for the soul.

    We need them. They are for our own good.

    No, God doesn't want to ruin our day or take our life. He wants to give us every opportunity to take advantage of eternal life and fellowship with Him.

    Yes, I really believe that we are all accountable to a sovereign God, maker of heaven and Earth. If we ignore His laws and disobey His commandments, there is a price to pay. If we keep doing it, we pay with our lives.

    I don't mind the wisecracks a column like this always provokes. I don't mind the darts and the brickbats. I really don't mind at all.

    It's my job – as a follower of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – to proclaim the truth.

    Silly, huh?

    Look, this earthquake turned out to be a warning only, without loss of life or serious property damage. But there will be a bigger one coming, as everyone should understand.

    Your life can change dramatically in the blink of an eye.

    I don't know what to expect from this hurricane on its way toward the East Coast. It could be devastating for some or nothing at all.

    Nevertheless, it's always a good time to get right with God.

    Your life can be snatched away at any time without warning. So, when we get them, we should take heed.

    Listen to God. Read His book. Obey the commandments. Listen to His voice. Seek forgiveness for your sins. Pray for the redemption of your loved ones. Pray for the redemption of your country.

    I say this in love to everyone reading.

    You can laugh about it. You can cry about it. But take the message seriously.

    It is offered earnestly in love.

    Washington, D.C., deserves more than the wallop it got today. It needs a much bigger shaking up than it got. And I have no doubts that it is coming – unless there is a real change of heart in the leadership of this country.

    After all, if America doesn't face judgment soon, God will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. And God doesn't offer apologies.

    He does, however, offer second chances, third chances, fourth chances …

    He's trying to get your attention. Are you paying heed? What will it take? Will your world have to be turned upside down before you recognize what's happening? Would even that be enough?

    I know. I know. It was just a little earthquake – and just another hurricane. They happen all the time. What are you making such a big deal about, Farah?

    You're right. We escaped this time. No big deal. But when your world is shaking, you tend to think about the things that really matter.

    And what really matters is our relationship with our heavenly Father, our Creator, the Lord of the universe.

    He is trying to tell us something. His message is very clear. Don't say you weren't warned.

    Re: Queue the godbots....it was only a matter of t

    So... if every single person in the USA suddely decided to start praying to Jesus then there wouldn't be any more natural disasters and the tectonic plates and weather cycle would suddenly stop in place?

    And of course this totally ignores that all life on earth is completely dependant on the after effects of earthquakes and hurricanes.

    This is from the U.S. Geological Survey site:
    Earthquake Facts and Statistics

    Frequency of Occurrence of Earthquakes

    Magnitude Average Annually
    8 and higher 1 ¹
    7 - 7.9 15 ¹
    6 - 6.9 134 ²
    5 - 5.9 1319 ²
    4 - 4.9 13,000
    (estimated)
    3 - 3.9 130,000
    (estimated)
    2 - 2.9 1,300,000
    (estimated)


    ¹ Based on observations since 1900.
    These numbers have been recently updated, based on data from the Centennial catalog (from 1900 to 1999) and the PDE (since 2000).
    ² Based on observations since 1990.

    Magnitude vs. Ground Motion and ******

    Magnitude Change Ground Motion Change
    (Displacement)
    ****** Change
    1.010.0 timesabout 32 times
    0.53.2 timesabout 5.5 times
    0.32.0 timesabout 3 times
    0.11.3 timesabout 1.4 times
    This table shows that a magnitude 7.2 earthquake produces 10 times more ground motion than a magnitude 6.2 earthquake, but it releases about 32 times more ******. The ****** release best indicates the destructive power of an earthquake. See: How much bigger is a magnitude 8.7 earthquake than a magnitude 5.8 earthquake?

    The USGS estimates that several million earthquakes occur in the world each year. Many go undetected because they hit remote areas or have very small magnitudes. The NEIC now locates about 50 earthquakes each day, or about 20,000 a year.
    As more and more seismographs are installed in the world, more earthquakes can be and have been located. However, the number of large earthquakes (magnitude 6.0 and greater) has stayed relatively constant. See: Are Earthquakes Really on the Increase?

    Earthquake Information for the 1990s
    Graphs of Earthquake Statistics
    We detect, but generally do not locate, about 50 mine blasts (explosions) throughout the United States on any given business day. These blasts typically occur between noon and 6 PM local time Monday through Saturday. Of these, about one event every two days is large enough that we compute a location for the blast and post it to a separate explosions listing.http://www.usgs.gov/

    Just as long as folks keep themselves locked up in their tiny little emotional "boxes" they won't ever discover the reality a bit of free-thinking can deliver. Children will think as children, IMHO.

    Most people can't think, most of the remainder won't think, the small fraction who do think mostly can't do it very well. The extremely tiny fraction who think regularly, accurately, creatively, and without self-delusion- in the long run these are the only people who count... Robert Heinlein

    Yes there are. Fail. No point reading any further. (I'm surprised I got that far, actually)

    Yeah....another popular misconception and justification for being superstitious. I was one....in a rice paddy....(deist anyway...)

    Turns out that there were many of them.

    As I've said, Jesus was not the son of God. Jesus was God.

    Whatever happens is the consequence of humans actions, not God. Since His brutal murder (Rev. 11), God has assumed a policy of nonintervention.

    Shortly, I believe the world will self-destruct.

    I call BS. Prove it. Using your logic, "until you can prove how God was created then b.y default, science will explain it"

    Not according to the article. All these disasters are God scaring us to follow him. Perhaps you should read the article.

    What makes your prediction any less BS than Joseph Farah's? Oh right... you had a dream.... We he didn't claim he didn't...

    Sure. Crazy old men with signboards have been screaming "The end is near" for at least thousands of years. All of them were sure of it too.

    Or would you care to put a date on your prediction? (crickets)

    lord jag said:Not according to the article. All these disasters are God scaring us to follow him. Perhaps you should read the article.
    If there is a personal god then this is proof of his manipulation of human beings. Not a very good roll model, I'm afraid...
    Of course the average Christian wouldn't recognize manipulation, or the negative aspect of being "used," as it is commonplace within the realm of religions.
    Sure. Crazy old men with signboards have been screaming "The end is near" for at least thousands of years. All of them were sure of it too.
    If the planet really ends in our lifetime imagine the vindication that a lot of Christians will feel. Thinking that they were right......funny thought. It brings to mind the old story about a broken clock being right at least twice a day.....Naturally they will feel that its their "god" doing the destruction.....

    The Argument from
    Hasty Generalization
    In logic, the hasty generalization is a form of improper induction. in life, it is called prejudice. In either case, conclusions are drawn before the facts warrant it. Perhaps because our brains E-volved to be constantly on the lookout for connections between events and causes, this fallacy is one of the most common of all. Examples: A couple of bad teachers mean a bad school. A few bad cars mean that brand of automobile is unreliable. A handful of members of a group are used to judge the entire group. A substantial earthquake in a place on the planet that almost never gets one, and a hurricane coming to the same general place doesn't necessarily mean that the world will end within the next 200 centuries.

    We detect, but generally do not locate, about 50 mine blasts (explosions) throughout the United States on any given business day. These blasts typically occur between noon and 6 PM local time Monday through Saturday. Of these, about one event every two days is large enough that we compute a location for the blast and post it to a separate explosions listing.

    Just as long as folks keep themselves locked up in their tiny little emotional "boxes" they won't ever discover the reality a bit of free-thinking can deliver. Children will think as children, IMHO.

    7 - 7.9 15 ¹
    6 - 6.9 134 ²
    5 - 5.9 1319 ²

    2 - 2.9 1,300,000
    (estimated)


    ¹ Based on observations since 1900.
    These numbers have been recently updated, based on data from the Centennial catalog (from 1900 to 1999) and the PDE (since 2000).
    ² Based on observations since 1990.

    Magnitude vs. Ground Motion and ******

    Magnitude Change Ground Motion Change
    (Displacement)
    ****** Change
    1.010.0 timesabout 32 times
    0.53.2 timesabout 5.5 times
    0.32.0 timesabout 3 times
    0.11.3 timesabout 1.4 times
    This table shows that a magnitude 7.2 earthquake produces 10 times more ground motion than a magnitude 6.2 earthquake, but it releases about 32 times more ******. The ****** release best indicates the destructive power of an earthquake. See: How much bigger is a magnitude 8.7 earthquake than a magnitude 5.8 earthquake?

    The USGS estimates that several million earthquakes occur in the world each year. Many go undetected because they hit remote areas or have very small magnitudes. The NEIC now locates about 50 earthquakes each day, or about 20,000 a year.
    As more and more seismographs are installed in the world, more earthquakes can be and have been located. However, the number of large earthquakes (magnitude 6.0 and greater) has stayed relatively constant. See: Are Earthquakes Really on the Increase?

    Starting in January 2009, the USGS National Earthquake Information Center no longer locates earthquakes smaller than magnitude 4.5 outside the United States, unless we receive specific information that the earthquake was felt or caused damage.
    The values in the tables for the most recent years may fluctuate due to magnitude updates during the review process.

    LOL!!!! You know, some people actually go out and get an extremely good education and then envelope themselves in doing the work required for these numbers to actually have meaning!

    They then give the findings to their peers in their respective fields and allow them to critique the data to verify it....or to reject it.
    Naw, it isn't quite up to being called a "religion" yet!
    Most people can't think, most of the remainder won't think, the small fraction who do think mostly can't do it very well. The extremely tiny fraction who think regularly, accurately, creatively, and without self-delusion- in the long run these are the only people who count... Robert Heinlein

    all you are pointing out is the difference between amateurs and professionals and dont forget the peanut gallery!? the peanut gallery has FAITH in science since they have no way of understanding how science has led to the creation of marvelous devices!? i mean to them TV is MAGICAL!? :cwm2: :spin2: :freak3: :

    Not according to the article. All these disasters are God scaring us to follow him. Perhaps you should read the article.

    What makes your prediction any less BS than Joseph Farah's? Oh right... you had a dream.... We he didn't claim he didn't...

    Sure. Crazy old men with signboards have been screaming "The end is near" for at least thousands of years. All of them were sure of it too.

    Or would you care to put a date on your prediction? (crickets)
    I believe there will be a nuclear war in October of this year.

    REALLY!?!?!?

    OH GOODIE! Finally a falsifiable claim made ** the great Cnance, seer of dreams!

    Hey wait. You're not the first one. Some moron already claimed the apocalypse would happen in May this year and when it didn't happen, he changed it to October.

    So.. All we have to do is wait and see. Is Cnance actually having visions of God and receiving "holy" information? Or is he just full of shit like every other Christian?

    Stay tuned and find out!
