New York Earthquake!

AteoAteo Non est Deus. Fac cum eo. PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
New York was hit by an earthquake today, 8/23/11.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/23/east-coast-earthquake-the_n_934826.html

The quake hitting the East Coast of the US was felt as far north as Canada and as far south as Georgia. Its epicenter was Maryland (named after the Virgin) and shook the population centers of New York (same-sex marriage) and Washington DC (also same sex marriage).

The quake registered a mere 5.9 in the Richter Scale, something that Californians would just sneer about. But the East Coast is not used to earthquakes. This has been the strongest one we had since 1944.

While skyscrapers in Manhattan were evacuated, partly because of the paranoid nature of this city, the only damage reported so far is the only the central tower of the National Cathedral, hehehehe.

What could have caused this earthquake? Gay marriage? But New York City Hall, which is the marriage licensing center of the city is barely scratched by the quake. It could be that God is pissed off with religion itself. How else could it be that the only damaged building is the largest and most prominent religious building of the country?

What do you think?

    Corruption at Wall Street and gay marriage. They forgot Jeezas.

    Hmmm, you could be right, Ton2x. But remember that the only building that was damaged is the NATIONAL CATHEDRAL. And the epicenter is in MARYland.

    Is there a message there?

    Mary is sending the message of God's wrath.

    Nakatawa naman mga atheist hehe

    eh bakit yung pinagtitiwalaan niyong science CANNOT PREDICT WHEN WHERE THIS EARTHQUAKE will strike at kung gaano kalakas ANO PROBLEMA? NYAHAHA

    pati kidlat walang exact science ang makasagot kung kelan tatams at kung saan hihi

    may kahinaan pala si superscience

    I'm pretty sure Maryland was named after Mary, the Queen of Scots (who was named after Mary). But yeah, the connection is still there :P.

    If this was all based on the country's sexual orientation and religion, and not because of some movement below the earth that occurs naturally, then maybe, the Philippines should be ready for one massive earthquake in the near future. That should leave out the straight ones and those who has a strong faith in whatever they believe in.

    so, can theists using religion predict when and where earthquakes will happen? :confused:

    actuarial science studies events and can predict them with statistical probability. it has been successfuly employed in the insurance industry, market research, population research, meteorology, and various other fields employing the use of probability and the law of large numbers. what has religion contributed in this area aside from saying that it's all part of god's plan?

    yan din sabi ng tao noon eh na di daw tayo makakalipad at di mararating ang buwan.

    but im sure darating din panahon na mapagaaralan ng tao paano mapredict mga sinasabi mo.

    si God lang nakakaalam, hindi ko sinabing theist can predict merun ba sa post ko?

    statistical probablity? therefore not exact?

    mod ikaw napagaralan mo ba yang mga yan?

    Is the reliable prediction of individual earthquakes a realistic scientific goal?

    The idea that science cannot predict everything is not new; it dates back to the 1755 Great Lisbon earthquake, which shattered contemporary European belief in a benign, predictable Universe1. In the eighteenth century 'Age of Reason', the picture of a predictable Universe1 was based on the spectacular success of linear mathematics, such as Newton's theory of gravitation. The history of science during this century has to some extent echoed this earlier debate. Theories from the earlier part of the century, such as Einstein's relativity, and the development of quantum mechanics, were found to be spectacularly, even terrifyingly, successful when tested against experiment and observation. Such success was mirrored in the increasing faith that the general public placed in science. However, the century is closing with the gradual realization by both practitioners and the general public that we should not expect scientific predictions to be infallible. Even simple nonlinear systems can exhibit 'chaotic' behaviour, whereas more 'complex' nonlinear systems, with lots of interacting elements, can produce remarkable statistical stability while retaining an inherently random (if not completely chaotic) component2. The null hypothesis to be disproved is not that earthquakes are predictable, but that they are not.

    Why can't we predict earthquakes?


    So far, scientists haven't been able to find a signal for earthquakes - there is no obvious sign to say that an earthquake is coming very soon. Vibrations can be detected just before an earthquake occurs, but this doesn't give enough time for people to escape.

    what they have is a probablity but they cannot predict

    as per religion the bible is clear thay they have predicted the earthquakes, that there will be earthquakes

    siguro naman agree ka sa akin na may earthquake talaga diba

    what has religion has contributed on this area? it has warn the people that this will occur and that is a fact

    pero kung tatanungin mo sa akin ano ang natulong nila sa pagaaral dito hindi ko alam

    the fact that earthquakes happen is not new. can religion predict when and where earthquakes will happen, and how strong and how long they would be? assuming that religion was able to do this in the past, ngayon ba kelan, saan, at gaano kalakas ang next prediction ng religion?

    besides, i think you ought to read into the passages you quoted:
    Even simple nonlinear systems can exhibit 'chaotic' behaviour, whereas more 'complex' nonlinear systems, with lots of interacting elements, can produce remarkable statistical stability while retaining an inherently random (if not completely chaotic) component2.
