Has anyone kept track of how many just in the last 2 years?

Quote

April 2016 – GEOLOGY – Seismic tension continues to mount in the volatile region of the planet known as the Ring of Fire, where more than 90% of the world’s earthquakes occur, and more than 81% of the largest magnitude earthquakes occur. The extraordinary and precipitous rise in the number of large magnitude earthquakes is both astounding and alarming. On average, only about fifteen 7+ magnitude earthquakes strike the planet each year. We’ve had 2 such earthquake in less than 72 hours.

 

This has continued to baffle many of the world’s leading geologists, who still attest the rise in the number of large earthquakes is merely a random natural occurrence. For instance, the number of large earthquakes doubled in 2014. However, here’s what scientists had to say about it: “If you think there have been more earthquakes than usual this year, you’re right. A new study finds there were more than twice as many big earthquakes in the first quarter of 2014 as compared with the average since 1979.

 

“We have recently experienced a period that has had one of the highest rates of great earthquakes ever recorded,” said lead study author Tom Parsons, a research geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Menlo Park, California. But even though the global earthquake rate is on the rise, the number of quakes can still be explained by random chance, said Parsons and co-author Eric Geist, also a USGS researcher. Their findings were published online June 21 in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. 1

 

The average rate of big earthquakes — those larger than magnitude 7 — has been 10 per year since 1979, the study reports. That rate rose to 12.5 per year starting in 1992, and then jumped to 16.7 per year starting in 2010 — a 65 percent increase compared to the rate since 1979. This increase accelerated in the first three months of 2014 to more than double the average since 1979, the researchers went on to report.

Why is our planet having so many big earthquakes? It’s because big geological processes are driving the reactive seismic forces that create earthquakes along faults, trenches, and the planet’s many subduction zones. We don’t live on a perfect sphere. We live on a planet that more resembles a cracked egg. Cracked and badly fractured, partially due to its geology but mainly due to the intense heat rumbling within its interior (about 6,000 C and 10,800 F) and the geological dissipative features that try to regulate that heat and resulting kinetic energy. These geologic features include mantle plumes, faults, tectonic plates, submarine vents, and volcanic systems.  

 

In the last 24 hours, moderate earthquakes have struck regions in the far Pacific like Fiji and Tonga, while smaller earthquakes have rattled portions of Japan, Ecuador, Guatemala, El Salvador, Chile, Alaska, California, Indonesia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, the Adriatic Sea, the Strait of Gibraltar, the Hawaiian Islands, and Greece. Ecuador was struck with a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Ecuador’s antipodal point is the Sumatra region of Indonesia – which was struck with 5.0,  4.8, and 4.5 magnitude earthquakes in the last 24 hours. You might say the entire planet is now reeling from earthquakes from one end to the other. Where will the next big earthquake strike or how long will this current seismic episode last is anybody’s guess? About the only thing we can be certain of is there will be many more such events and they will increase in both severity and intensity. –Alvin Conway, TEP

2016   6.0+ quakes = 108

 

There were an even more astounding number of 6.0+ quakes in 2015:  127

2015 quakes 6.0+ = 127

 

For a grand total of:  

 

268 Major Earthquakes in just the past two years.

By comparison, 1944 experienced just 39.  

1944 quakes 6.0 and above

 

More recording stations probably accounts for better reporting.

 

During my research, I came upon something I'd never heard before.

Climate change can cause earthquakes:

Quote

 

Bill McGuire, a professor at the geophysical and climate hazards at University College London, suggests that the ever-changing climate could very will shake up the Earth more in the future. As temperatures rise—along with sea levels—more stress will be put on the crust of the Earth:

 

GPS measurements reveal that the crust beneath the Greenland ice sheet is already rebounding in response to rapid melting, providing the potential—according to researchers—for future earthquakes, as faults beneath the ice are relieved of their confining load. The possibility exists that these could trigger submarine landslides spawning tsunamis capable of threatening North Atlantic coastlines. Eastern Iceland is bouncing back too as its Vatnajökullice cap fades away. When and if it vanishes entirely, new research predicts a lively response from the volcanoes currently residing beneath. A dramatic elevation in landslide activity would be inevitable in the Andes, Himalayas, European Alps and elsewhere, as the ice and permafrost that sustains many mountain faces melts and thaws.

 

“The bottom line is that through our climate-changing activities we are loading the dice in favour of escalating geological havoc at a time when we can most do without it,” he concludes. We best speed up those tests on infrastructure that can resist quake damage—especially in cities.

That was fascinating data and it's interesting to read the opinions regarding why it's happening. I'm sure there are lots of scientists or geologists that have heard the scripture about increased earthquakes but still don't give it the least bit credibility.

Seeing so many in the ring of fire is equally disturbing. Hope it doesn't build up for a 'big one'.

When there's earthquakes, people in general talk about how awful it is, but nobody seems to talk about the spiritual significance of it.

times are really getting difficult - anyone keeping track of earthquake threads vs Trump (political) threads - at least one or two per week (or more)

literally, symbolically and/or spiritually, things have really been shaking up dramatically lately

I agree with this, not very many are credible, but the one I think is credible is still happy to take the praise for himself, not one iaota of acknowledgement of Jehovah - makes one wary of their agenda. I expect more ... just hope they hit where there is no people.

While researching, I did come across one website that mentioned the Bible's prophecies:

Quote

Trends since 1986

For example, between 1986 and 1996 (incl), a period of 11 years, there were "just" 15 earthquakes listed by USGS of magnitude 7.0 or greater. This is not markedly different (albeit a slight decrease) from previous (similar periods) of 20th century, where an average of about 18 might be expected.

 

But between 1997 and 2007 (incl), a period of only 11 years, there were 99 earthquakes with magnitude 7.0 or greater : This is more than a six-fold increase on the previous similar period - and is a stark increase on any earlier decades in 20th century too.

 

The trends in nature here, particularly from 1997 support the wider realisation of prophesy about the "End Times", namely that an increase in earthquake activity is a pre-requisite for the "second coming of Jesus Christ" foretold in the bible. It does not indicate how close we are to this event, but suggests it is not too far away.

 

About the "End Times"

Speaking of the signs that will happen, leading to his return to judge the peoples of earth (at the end of the age), Jesus is quoted as saying ‘in various places there will be famines and earthquakes - these things are the beginning of birth pangs’ (ref: Matthew 24).  Now, because birth pains begin small and then increase in intensity and frequency, this passage can be interpreted to mean that earthquakes (and famines - caused primarily through lack of rainfall in certain areas) will increase both in frequency and impact/strength prior to Jesus’ second coming. Although Jesus is clear that no one will know the day or the hour, and his return will indeed happen “when you do not expect”, he does give us broad pointers, one of these being natural events – like earthquakes.

 

Future Trends

Past performance cannot necessarily be taken as a clear indication of future trends (unfortunately many scientists tend to assume too often that it is, by simply projecting forward on an existing trend, without considering other factors) so we must be careful how past events are interpreted. However, it is clear we are currently living in a time when earthquake frequency has increased, it will be interesting to see if the immediate future maintains this trend.

 

Other Notes

When there are multiple earthquakes (over 7.0) occuring within 5 days of each other in the same geographic area, only one has been counted. This may result in slightly different (lower) numbers for earthquakes than might otherwise be listed, although consistancy in this approach makes historical comparisons more reliable, as large after-shocks were not always recorded (in addition to the "main" quake) in previous decades.

People of the world are not as asleep as one might think.  I'm privileged to witness on various sites, including FB, and there are a great number that quote the scriptures on Earthquakes.  Also, quite a few talk about the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation being fulfilled right now...quoting many scriptures from them.

An underground earthquake left at least two miners dead and six missing at the Rudna mine in Polkowice, south-western Poland, according to state media.

The earthquake of magnitude 4.4 struck just after 9pm Tuesday local time, according to the US Geological Survey.

The quake was centred a shallow 10km (6.2 miles) underground, the USGS said, which would have magnified its effect at the mine belonging to state-run copper producer KGHM.

Thank you brother, I should have wrote something about what it was about.

nice that you did it since I missed it:)
