Still got preps: Earthquakes forecast July 1, 16, 31 : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

Jim Berkland, on Coast to Coast AM with Mike Siegel (formerly Art Bell's show) recently forecast earthquakes, including some in the U.S. on the West Coast. Dates on or near Jul 1, 16, and 31. These dates are New, Full, and New moons, respectively. While full and new moons come on a 28-day cycle, the reason for the forecast is that the moon will be especially close to the earth this time in its orbit, causing higher tides. Higher tides means much more water weight stressing the earth's crust, increasing the potential for earthquakes.

I have only heard the broadcast, there may be a link to Berkland on the web site

Gee A, thats a pretty logical post.

Here in SoCal we have many earthquakes every day of the year, year in and year out. Some are felt, most are not. These Art Bell replacements should be congratulated for alerting the general public to this new impending doom. Get them preps before its too late!

Say there Mr. A is An Asshole, should we drain our pools?

Perhaps you can explain to the rest of us, A, what happened on May 5th??? Or is this "the new" doom forcast to make up for that embarrassment (sp?)?

Rob, FYI, 2000-05-05 was going to be (and was) a non-event. The so-called planetary alignment was NOT an alignment. Planets were MANY degrees from each other (as viewed from Earth). (You can check if you have an ephemeris.) I don't know what the rationale was supposed to be. Just some clown writing a book catering to a generation of new-age scientific illiterates

The Sun and the Moon are the major influences on Earth. All the other planets combined, Jupiter included, have negligible influence. The variation of the distance of the moon in its orbit has much more influence on earth than any so-called alignment of any and all other planets.

If you are interested, you could read about "planetary spheres of influence" and "tidal influences" in Tom van Flandern's "Dark Matter, Missing Planets and New Comets -- Paradoxes Resolved, Origins Illuminated."

California has hundreds of earthquakes weekly.

There is an earthquake map at

which is updated frequently (within 1-5 minutes of an earthquake, or once an hour).

Rrrrrrrock my world, baby...

Talk about "Rock your World", check out the high gas prices, then really look at some food prices. It is a reality check, for those who can see, and feel compassion for those who make less. It is incredible.

Andyboy: Thanks for reminding me to turn off my Javascript -- you asshole. Talk about getting a life -- do you type with just your left hand, weenie boy?

Got water? Here's link to geologist Berkland's earthquake site.

You know...if you need a good laugh, check out that link above and then go to the message board titled: Earthquake Sensitive. These anxiety ridden people are blaming every thing from nausea to just plaining "icky" on impending earthquakes. Ridiculous!

oops i meant...just plain "icky" feelings.

Score one for Berkland on the new moon today...

A 6.1? That's just a little evening's excitement by California standards. Wasn't the Loma Prieta one around 7.1? Does anyone know how big the Northridge one was?

-- Observer (Lots@to.observe), July 01, 2000.

Northridge quake was measured at 6.7

Thanks, Ra!
