Japan hit with a magnitude 8.9 earthquake

Post by Demon Lord Ghirahim on Fri Mar 11, 2011 12:24 pm

You may or may not have already heard, but just a few hours ago, Japan was devastated by a magnitude 8.9 earthquake, that was about 231 miles off the coast of Tokyo. The earthquake spawned a giant tsunami that not only destroyed Japan's crops and caused oil refineries to explode, but reports say that the west coast of America could be impacted. Along with the damage done to the island, world markets are crashing because of Japan's position in the global economy. There have been reports from the Japanese government that at least 200-300 bodies have been found in the coastal city of Sendai, but they don't know the official death toll as more impacted areas have not started sending in their reports. Even after the earthquake and tsunamis hit Japan, they also were hit with 30 aftershocks, the strongest of which was a magnitude 7.0.

I'm just so sad that this happened. Japan will be in my prayers for a while. And the moment I find a charity dedicated to raise funds for Japan, I'm going to post the link here. This news is worse than devastating.

Well there are a few things to explain that:
1. The Earth slowly changes it's axis over the years. By now, the earth has changed it's axis so much, that the wheather patterns are changing with the local area climate.
2. Very Very slwoly, the moon actually gets father and father away from the earth. Back in ancient eygpt, the moon was probalbly twice the size it is now. The moon controls much of earth's wheather patterns and tides, so as it moves away, the patterns change.

And just a reasuring fact for all the Christians out there:

Spoiler:
Matthew 24:36-37:

36 No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.


2 Peter 3:1-18:

1 Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking.

2 I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles.

3 First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.

4 They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation."

5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water.

6 By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.

7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.

11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives

12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat.

13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.

14 So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.

15 Bear in mind that our Lord's patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him.

16 He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.

17 Therefore, dear friends, since you already know this, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of lawless men and fall from your secure position.

18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-9:

1 Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you,

2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.

3 While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

4 But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

5 You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.

6 So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.

7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night.

8 But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.

9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

I'm just...devestated. Things like this just keep happening. Last year's Haiti earthquake, now this. I pray for the lives lost, and those grieving them and having to rebuild.

Haha I'm not alone! I KNEW there were other people out there with zombie plans! See, there're two kinds of people in this world; those who have plans for a zombie invasion, and those who don't. We call the second group, dinner.

Nope! But it involves Wal-Mart, a chainsaw, some tape, and a hockey stick.
