When even the “Esoteric Metaphysical Spiritual Database” says an earthquake prediction is nonsense, then you KNOW you should not panic.
By now, many of you have heard about the 9.8 Magnitude earthquake prediction for May 28th, 2015 in California, due to a planetary alignment of Venus and Mercury. Some people are making references to Nostradamus, who spoke of some coincidental references to this rumored event in one of his quatrains.
On April 29, 2015, this video was posted by “some random guy in the Netherlands”, Frank Hoogerbeets, who gets his info from spirits. It has over 700,000 views today and no basis in science or facts even though it sounds sciencey with claims of planetary alignments and critical “stuff”.
On May 28, 2015 towards the end of the day UTC time, and continuing on May 29, there will be a series of very critical planetary alignments whereby Venus and Mercury are really being charged up on the North-Amerca / Pacific side.
The rumor is not just circulating for California but for the Philippines too where people were warned to stop texting about it.
Here are some reasons to discard this rumor as utter nonsense:
- It’s a video from some guy. Frank leaves himself an out saying he hopes he’s wrong. Why should you listen to him? It’s not a great strategy to get your world-ending news from youtube videos from cranks or via websites that just exist to create panic about end times.
- Planetary alignments don’t cause earthquakes. Venus and Mercury are REALLY far away.
- 9.8 magnitude? Not enough energy could be stored in the fault zone of California for such a strong quake to let loose; it’s not a subduction zone. Now, Alaska and Chile, on the other hand, are. But the strongest recorded earthquake was 9.5 in Chile. Geologists are not aware of a fault anywhere in the world long enough to generate a magnitude 10 quake.
- Nostradamus predictions are not only bogus but WAY overhyped. You’d think we’d have figured that out by now.
- You can’t reliably predict earthquakes. It’s fail after fail. You can FORECAST but not predict. There is a big difference. Also, no one person has devised a scientific means to do it let alone a supernatural means.
Apocalypse claims are so frequent, they are getting BORING. But it’s not ethical to cause a panic, even a mild one, for no good reason. And this is NOT a good reason.
But, as we always recommend, you SHOULD be prepared for an earthquake and accompanying tsunami at ANY time if you live in active fault areas like California, Alaska, coastal Washington/Oregon or Hawaii. Earthquakes happen and one may even happen tomorrow, but it’s got nothing to do with Frank and his baseless prediction.
