    Earthquakes continue to increase in frequency and intensity, just as the Bible predicts for the last days before the return of Christ. History shows that the number of killer quakes remained fairly constant until the 1950s - averaging between two to four per decade. In the 1950s, there were nine. In the 1960s, there were 13. In the 1970s, there were 51. In the 1980s, there were 86. From 1990 through 1996, there have been more than 150.

    Why do you suppose that is? You believe earthquakes are occurring more frequently and in stronger intensity over the last 6 decades? Or is that possibly a reflection of the growth in human population combined with the areas where populations are concentrated, they type of structures they build and the relative wealth and sophistication of the people who live there?

    Who knows? That's why the scriptures say watch and pray. We may be in the end times we may not be. The important thing to remember is to be prepared and live your life like it might be your last.

    It is a fact earthquakes are happening more frequently and your reasoning that these events only seem to be because of your net worth or the earth is more populated is equivalent to putting your head in a hole and hoping it goes away. We have been warned of this by the Bible and you really should take heed. Why do you think the governments of the world have decided to build a seed depository into the side a mountain up in the arctic, because everything is just hunky dory get your heads out of your holes and make your peace with G-d and his son Jesus.

    You ever thought it is due to the spread of technology, techno improvements that led to ability to record readings in remote places?

    In other words, more readings may indicate better ability to detect and measure earthquakes from around the globe.

    Which still fulfills the prophecy. Even if the number of earthquakes remains constant year-after-year, people are becoming more aware of them due to technological advances and the fact that there are more people on the planet. The net perception is that the number of earthquakes is increasing.

    It's obvious: there are too many people on Guam and Earth is trying to compensate without having Guam tip over.

    Close the thread, my word here is done

    USGS said this is nothing new. Plus they don't call it the Ring of Fire for nothing.
