Then -- the great Christmas disaster of December 26th, 2004 -- as now we report that these are man made tragedies.
HAARP and experimentation with new physics equipment that is not well understood draws on massive amounts of energy (as explained by Stuart Swerdlow) that gets released in uncontrolled ways.
What is behind the string of massive quakes that come out of nowhere, slip along new faults, and promote the nonexplanation of there being a "rim of fire"?
This was the worst slip-strike quake in history by far. They have never been known to get this big. Such geological events are very useful as tools to inspire fear and control populations. David Icke pointed out in his "rap" song: Set up a problem to implement a desired solution. It is no real response, but a planned way of instituting new draconian policies without resistance or people even being aware that they are being enslaved.
When was the great tsunami that killed so many people in traditionally Buddhist (now increasingly Muslim and Christian) parts of the world such as (Aceh) Indonesia, the island of Sri Lanka, India (Tamil Nadu), and Thailand?
We turn to the all-knowing book for answers. The 2004 quake hit on Dec. 26th, 2004 at 0:58:53 (UTC). It had a 9.1-9.3 magnitude, which represents an enormous range concealed by the odd exponential way we measure earthquakes. It went to a depth, or originated there, of 19 miles (30 km), originating under the sea in the subduction zone. It caused an estimated 230,210-280,000 deaths making it the sixth deadliest earthquake in history.
The 2004 Indian Ocean quake that led to the Asian tsunami was an undersea megathrust earthquake that occurred on Sunday, Dec. 26, 2004 with an epicenter off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The quake itself is known by the scientific community as the Sumatra-Andaman earthquake.
The resulting tsunami with three giant waves is given various names, including the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, South Asian tsunami, Indonesian tsunami, and Boxing Day tsunami, but somehow not the Christmas Disaster or, as Wisdom Quarterly prefers, just the Asian tsunami.
The earthquake was caused by subduction and triggered a series of devastating tsunamis along the coasts of most landmasses bordering the Indian Ocean, killing over 230,000 people in 14countries, and inundating coastal communities with waves up to 98 feet (30 m) high. It was one of the deadliest disasters ever recorded. Indonesia was the hardest-hit country, followed by Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand, making it the third largest earthquake ever recorded on a seismograph.
The earthquake had the longest duration of faulting ever observed, between 8.3 and 10 minutes. It caused the entire planet to vibrate as much as 0.4 inches (1 cm) and triggered other earthquakes as far away as Alaska. Its epicenter was between Simeulue and mainland Indonesia. The plight of the affected people and countries prompted a worldwide humanitarian response. In all, the worldwide community donated more than US $14 billion in humanitarian aid. More
