Unbelievable:

I'm a little tired of the fight and I just don't recognise this world any longer.
Maybe I'm just old and used to live in simpler times.
Is the earth just going through a phase or transition, or is this stuff man made?
If it is man made, I'm not so sure I want to be here any more.

Believable, if you know who to trust

"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

All these are the beginning of sorrows." Matthew 24:6-8

I believe it is natural

6-6.9 mag quakes occur on average 120 a year.

I blame the internet for keeping everyone up to date world wide. That and the plates keep moving so if we go through a period of time with no quakes eventually that energy needs to be shaken out.

precisely

If the quake in Japan hadn't occurred, this post wouldn't exist.
