The Scare and Fun of the 6.9 Magnitude Negros-Cebu Earthquake

Earthquakes are increasing and tsunami warnings in a global scale are becoming frequent everyday. I believe there were more earthquakes in history last year and more are expected this year. The most recently devastating earthquake to hit was in Japan (March 2011) that caused the heartbreaking tsunamis.  The past two years several had hit us causing several damages in Mexico, Los Angeles, Japan, Turkey, Indonesia, Chile, Haiti and I am sure that many more are yet to come. Could this be a subtle sign of a great danger that all awaits us in the next few months?

The Scare Behind the Negros-Cebu Quake

Just today, series of quakes hit the major territories of Cebu and Negros islands. The highest magnitude recorded was a 6.9 with epicenter 005 km N 41° W of Tayasan (Negros Oriental) as per PHIVOLCS. I was in my room when it struck, and I saw the things hanging on the wall swaying back and forth.

students and employees were told to go out and go home

Deep inside I knew there was an earthquake going on but I remain calm, laid down and continued to doze off. I told myself, "This isn't the end of the world!" But honestly, I better be relieved and happy if this could be a start of the so-called "End of Days". Well' I prefer to coin it  "global cleansing" or reducing the population because I believe that the Earth will stood still as long as the sun remains shining. I just want to cleanse the Earth with evil people.

An Omen of the 2012 End of Days?

Yes, I guess it is obvious that I am a fan of "the end of the world" chronicles. I also would like to think that maybe it's the only way to renew the Earth and start a brand new world. =) Now we will be talking about the December 2012 chronicles...

  • Many folks have now believe that December 2012 is something to look forward to. Experts are predicting massive and sudden destructive events of global and even cosmic proportion that will result in the loss of billions of human lives.
  • Skeptics generally believe that nothing truly remarkable will occur on this particular date. It is merely the date of a solstice when the length of the daytime is at a minimum.
  • Finally, It is merely the center of a time interval starting years -- perhaps centuries -- in our past and continuing for centuries in our future during which a gradual transformation will be manifested.
