[Various] Quake misses Rome, hits Spain instead. - Page 3

post #21 of 53
Also don't get me started on people cashing in and conning and scaring people by being 'earthquake predictors'...we had our very own clown (literally) here. Nothing like death threats to shut him up

As opposed to news about Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber or Lindsay Lohan on drugs?

Who said there was any correlation? I just pointed out that Rome was in a frenzy over a prophecy that stated that on May 11, 2011, it would be hit by a massive quake.

Now, on the same very day (today), Spain is hit by a medium intensity, that happened to cause significant destruction and 10 deaths.

Just pointing out the coincidence, nothing else.

Read the articles next time.

It's 900km (560 miles) away. Far from a 'prediction'.

It's called earthquake strengthening. but that takes time and money to do. Many of the older buildings survived here while others without any / much earthquake strengthening were significantly more damaged. Also dependent on the type of earthquake strengthening and how strong it is.

2012 is a farce. If you study the newagey concepts one of their biggys is 11:11.Like it's some digital binary awakening. I constantly see it and I just had a freaking aneurism I got so mad at it. The computer industry is so full of lies and false numbers. IBM invents the arithmentic tabulation machine and it starts social security which turns into a ponzi scheme. As we progress into computer age society degenerates as far as accounting and accountability. We constantly try to model things wrong. Our money system doesn't even work out mathematically as it distorts underlying assets.
We have science and it's wonderful because it gets its proof from individual unconnected verification. IE someone does an experiment and then some other people continue verifying it or denying it. There are very few firm solid foundations in the universe but science has allowed us to ingrain this thought. Then electronics turns into a distorted version of this basic underlying scientific methodology. People present numbers and then other people parrot them over and over through all sorts of channels. People pop out numbers that other people can't possibly verify and they get repeated over and over as facts and statistics like it's following the scientific methodology of independant verification. Until it's so prescient that people just assume it's been fact checked by so many people that it's passed the logical tests.

It's a ground work for the big lie. A lie so big that it becomes unbelievable that it isn't true. Don't copy that floppy but be sure and copy that lie. It's kid tested and mother approved. Get on the internet and download a wrong fact today the really wrong ones will go viral through digital copying technology.

Back on topic. Great post OP. Neat that you found that bizarre prophecy and weird that it happened someplace else.
