Increased earthquake activity, whats going on?
Hey everyone im new here and i want to ask my first question and hopefully i can get a answer. As an atheist my religious mom is going absolutely nuts about all these earthquakes happening, and i myself am worried, why is there so many earthquakes happening within this short amount of time? is something happening that we should worry about? is the bible prophecy real and are we doomed? these are all questions that have been on my mind lately, but i am an atheist and i try to think logic first but this stuff has me kinda scared. so can someone at least give me a legit reason why were seeing so much increased earthquake activity??

Religious nuts are always on the lookout for anything to support their delusions.

There are over a million earthquakes per year. Most are minor. On average, there are 15 big ones per year.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

You can make the Bible say anything you want it to say. Many of the passages (especially the ones involving prophecy) are ambiguous enough to do just that. There are websites out there that say the Bible predicted the Holocaust, 9/11, AIDS, and many other things currently impacting the world today. However, this is not an accurate reading of the Bible.

In terms of prophecy--prophets in the Bible were discussing events that were going on during their own time via "prophecies" and not events that were going to take place many years in the future. Many of the prophecies in the Bible that were "predicted" did not come true and the ones that did "come true" were written vaticinium ex eventu (prophecy from the event), i.e. written in after the fact.

Like Minimalist said, there are many earthquakes every year--it's just when the big ones hit, people take notice. And *some* religious people like to say it was god-related.

I personally think the monsters from the movie 'Tremors' are responsible.
It's just as valid as anything from the bible.

This is directed at no one here. I just think it's funny.
