Yes, I've heard of HAARP, but I'm also familiar with critical thinking.

what amazes me is how they are not prepared for this stuff. Electricity gone, and they can't cool down the cores of nuclear plant ? They built them on the most active seismic zone, and they didn't think about plan b,c and d ?

I'm sure they prepared for it. There's footage of Tokyo buildings swaying BUT not falling down. The engineers there have prepared for earthquakes like this, but there's only so much you can do. We can't predict what kind of earthquakes are going to happen and what tsunamis will occur. Plus the epicenter of the quake was really close to the country. My thoughts and prayers to the people of Japan, I hope they can recover from this.

Oh and there was this article I saw saying how the earthquake has increased the rate at which the Earth is spinning :S But its only increased by 1.8 milliseconds.

Hilarious. Did you do any more research than just watching the videos?


Actually, before we get much further, we should agree on one thing (since you have already gone against this a couple times):

Do you agree that the truth of this matter will be inferred by the use of valid, sound reasoning combined with scientific evidence?

Quake moved Japan coast 8 feet, shifted Earth's axis

(CNN) -- The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis.

"At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass," said Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Reports from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy estimated the 8.9-magnitude quake shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 4 inches (10 centimeters).

The temblor, which struck Friday afternoon near the east coast of Japan, killed hundreds of people, caused the formation of 30-foot walls of water that swept across rice fields, engulfed entire towns, dragged houses onto highways, and tossed cars and boats like toys. Some waves reached six miles (10 kilometers) inland in Miyagi Prefecture on Japan's east coast.


The quake was the most powerful to hit the island nation in recorded history and the tsunami it unleashed traveled across the Pacific Ocean, triggering tsunami warnings and alerts for 50 countries and territories as far away as the western coasts of Canada, the U.S. and Chile. The quake triggered more than 160 aftershocks in the first 24 hours -- 141 measuring 5.0-magnitude or more.

The quake occurred as the Earth's crust ruptured along an area about 250 miles (400 kilometers) long by 100 miles (160 kilometers) wide, as tectonic plates slipped more than 18 meters, said Shengzao Chen, a USGS geophysicist.

Japan is located along the Pacific "ring of fire," an area of high seismic and volcanic activity stretching from New Zealand in the South Pacific up through Japan, across to Alaska and down the west coasts of North and South America. The quake was "hundreds of times larger" than the 2010 quake that ravaged Haiti, said Jim Gaherty of the LaMont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University.

The Japanese quake was of similar strength to the 2004 earthquake in Indonesia that triggered a tsunami that killed over 200,000 people in more than a dozen countries around the Indian Ocean. "The tsunami that it sent out was roughly comparable in terms of size," Gaherty said. "[The 2004 tsunami] happened to hit some regions that were not very prepared for tsunamis ... we didn't really have a very sophisticated tsunami warning system in the Indian Ocean basin at the time so the damage was significantly worse."

Thought I'd share this video.


I've been subscribing Phil for a while now, and this is easily one of his best videos. Gave me chills.

I'm not judging you. As much as I love things like basketball n video games, I believe in the freakiness of things like what you wrote.

However, it happend on 03/11/11, Japan time. Even in Eastern Standard Time (Toronto time), the first earthquake happend at 1am. Granted, that's juss one damn hour after 3/10/11.

Nostradamus predicted crazy things like this, but he's also predicted good things to happen in our timeframe. So here's hoping the true chosen's of the planet (mortal judges, if you will) are on the ball w/what they're supposed to do, so shit like what Japan is goin through don't fuckin happen anywhere else on our mud-rock planet.
