To those of you reading this, I just wanted to post this because it gave better details than the other Topics that I have read, and related more to the United States. This Earthquake did some crazy s**t! image



Japanís earthquake shifted balance of the planet


Last week's devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan has actually moved the island closer to the United States and shifted the planet's axis.

The quake caused a rift 15 miles below the sea floor that stretched 186 miles long and 93 miles wide, according to the AP. The areas closest to the epicenter of the quake jumped a full 13 feet closer to the United States, geophysicist Ross Stein at the United States Geological Survey told The New York Times.

The world's fifth-largest, 8.9 magnitude quake was caused when the Pacific tectonic plate dove under the North American plate, which shifted Eastern Japan towards North America by about 13 feet (see NASA's before and after photos at right). The quake also shifted the earth's axis by 6.5 inches, shortened the day by 1.6 microseconds, and sank Japan downward by about two feet. As Japan's eastern coastline sunk, the tsunami's waves rolled in.

Why did the quake shorten the day? The earth's mass shifted towards the center, spurring the planet to spin a bit faster. Last year's massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake in Chile also shortened the day, but by an even smaller fraction of a second. The 2004 Sumatra quake knocked a whopping 6.8 micro-seconds off the day.

After the country's 1995 earthquake, Japan placed high-tech sensors around the country to observe even the slightest movements, which is why scientists are able to calculate the quake's impact down to the inch. "This is overwhelmingly the best-recorded great earthquake ever," Lucy Jones, chief scientist for the Multi-Hazards project at the U.S. Geological Survey, told The Los Angeles Times.

The tsunami's waves necessitated life-saving evacuations as far away as Chile. Fisherman off the coast of Mexico reported a banner fishing day Friday, and speculated that the tsunami knocked sealife in their direction.

I just read about this today. It is hard to imagine that something can move a land mass that large. That's crazy. My prayers really go out to the Japanese.

No, it's biblical related, and people only have an expiration in the flesh, if your with Christ you don't have an "expiration date".

Its nature related, earthquakes happen all the time, if your around long enough something is bound to happen, the earth is a living breathing thing, so us being here, we are going to have some casualties every now and then.......dont believe the hype........JESUS IS NEVER COMING BACK......hate to tell you......but all that end of the world Revelations garbage was not even introduced into the bible until late 1800 early 1900's.......we will be here until the Big One happens which it will......or we k!ll ourselves off doing something dumb and unimportant

Jesus is real, but on a side note, this has been happening since the beginning of Earth. All this 2012 talk is crazy. The continents were all connected at one point. We are just in an active cycle.

Who told you that?

The book was written between 1AD and 100AD.
The Bible as a whole was put together by our early church fathers during the times of the early church.

1800? 1900?

Man, you don't know a thing
