New Trigger for Powerful Earthquakes

New Trigger for Powerful Earthquakes

Scientists have long debated whether the movements of the Moon and the tidal stresses it generates play a role in triggering earthquakes, and now it looks like we might have an answer. A new study by researchers in Japan suggests that large earthquakes are more likely to occur at times of a full or new Moon. Nine of the 12 largest earthquakes – those with a magnitude of 8.2 or above – happened around a new or full Moon. At the time of a New and full Moon during the monthly lunar cycle, the Sun, Moon, and Earth all align, and the gravitational tug of the Moon on Earth is at its most intense. To really understand the effect that the Moon has on earthquakes, read the new evidences and discoveries found in the Magma Pseudotheory and the Hyrdoplanet Model in UM.

    Scientists should have been experimenting and observing instead of only debating and theorizing. At age eleven I became friends with a well-known (at that time) science reporter at what was then a major newspaper. At one point he suddenly cut ties for no apparent reason at the time. Years later the thought occurred to me that I must have made a direct or indirect reference to Scripture during one or more of our conversations. I had learned to read very early and had challenged myself to read and understand the Bible, having numerous copies (several versions) around the house while I was growing up. It started with a book called Children’s Bible Story Book. I quickly noticed the fine print beneath each chapter heading and asked my parents about them. They showed me how to look up the references in the Bible itself. After that I never picked up that Children’s book again except to check out more fine print.

    Modern scientists have been reading each others Children’s Science Books for generations while all along ignoring all the “fine print”. After learning a bit about tides in school I often wondered about whether or not the earth’s crust experienced tides, but never found anything on the subject until very recently. But I did begin a personal project of attempting to discover the reasons behind the existence of the universe and of life and the human race. But by that time the theory of evolution had been so drummed into my ears that I pursued everything on that basis. A school principal learned about my interests and wrote a letter to the local librarian to allow me to exceed the normal maximum of borrowed volumes.

    Meanwhile, experts were visiting schools in order to inform students that we would be wasting our time to ask ourselves basic questions, because we would never find any meaningful or useful answers to them. This sparked my interest even more to find those answers anyway. I was in high school when I finally came full circle back to the Bible, where I began to find those answers, because years of being fed meaninglessness had prepared me to appreciate the full impact.

    Since then, I have been the only hindrance standing in the way of my pursuit of all the answers.

    (Note: “Hyrdoplanet” should be “Hydroplanet”. I work as an editor so I couldn’t help noticing. The science reporter I mentioned earlier had later headed the investigation into the explosion that killed the original three Apollo astronauts.)
