    An 8.9-magnitude earthquake, centered off the west coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

    "All the planet is vibrating" from the quake, said Enzo Boschi, the head of Italy's National Geophysics Institute. Speaking on SKY TG24 TV, Boschi said the quake even disturbed the Earth's rotation.

    Look for this earthquake to effect the earth's current weather and seismic events in the next few weeks.

    Nato why do you find this event worrisome?

    All matter in the universe is neither more nor less than condensed energy. This includes all physical beings on what we assume to be planet earth including events which seem to occur in front of our 5 senses.

    The earth has been through much worse in history and yet nothing has sent the earth flying off its course around the sun and in its position in the Milky-Way.

    I was think more in terms of a large asteroid hit that could cause dangerous conditions for human life. Nature has a variety of methods to alter the course of man's existence that man can do nothing about. Fear may be a naive response but a natural one ,wouldn't you agree?

    Fear is a naive repsonse but not necessary at all.

    The mere fact that this single planet exists in the universe with every minute detail fixed for existence and consciousness leaves one more fear and awe than any natural or man made event that might end it all.

    Statistically the odds for this myriad of coinicidences of life in this existence on a dust speck is so infintesimally small (as to be impossible) that there is absolutely no reason to fear all life coming to an end by default.

    I didn't say "necessary"---I said "natural'.

    Fear is relative as to who might find it to be natural or to those who might find fear not necessary.

    IOW, fear of an earthly disaster is not natural to ALL or even MOST.
