Every day there are earthquakes around the globe. Most range under 5.5 magnitude causing little disturbances.

Recently, there has been a wave of earthquakes over the 6.0 magnitude. Many Journalists are question if there is something sinister occurring.

Yesterday another Earthquake hit Eastern Turkey with the magnitude of 6.0, killing up to 60 people from what is being reported. People are beginning to panic in fear of the stability of the earth. The emitting of fear around the world feeds the power of delusion.

Major panic is occurring in Japan stemming from superstition of a omen belief of folklore.

A bad omen—according to the Japanese perception and belief—surfaced on the shores of Japan in the recent days.

The huge dragon-like fish called “Oarfish”, believed to be the genesis of sea monster legends, are a traditional earthquake omen. They normally remain in the dark depths below 600 feet where they can grow to be 50 feet long. Japanese folklore has long held that whenever a giant oarfish shows up in a fishing net, a major tremor is nigh.

In recent weeks, more than two dozen of the mysterious giant oarfish have washed ashore or been found dead in fishing nets off Japan’s northern coast. The are different reports on the actual numbers of the fish surfacing.

Experts are baffled. “I don’t know why so many were found almost simultaneously, an aquarium official told the Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun.

This fish that is known traditionally as the Messenger from the Sea God’s Palace. In ancient times Japanese people believed that fish warned of coming earthquakes, particularly catfish.

The U.S. Geological Survey says there are about 17 major earthquakes – of a magnitude between 7.0 and 7.9 – and at least one even bigger earthquake – 8.0 or above – every year somewhere in the world.

However, this year these major earthquakes are hitting populated areas that are killing people, causing homelessness, and creating emotional fear driven panic.

The earthquakes 6.0 and above in the last two months.

The short list:

Eastern Turkey: 6.0, March 8
Southern East Pacific Rise: 6.3, March 7
Off Shore Bio Bio Chile: 6.6, March 5
Southwest of Sumatra, Indonesia: 6.5, March 5
Antofagasta, Chile: 6.3, March 4
Vanuatu (island of New Zealand): 6.5, March 4
Taiwan: 6.2, March 4 2010

    Utter nonsense. You say every year there are 17 major earthquakes over 7.0(let’s say i won’t research this statement and believe you). Then you give me a list of earthquakes 6.0 and above, of which only 3 are 7.0+. How do you expect people to believe you when you make such mistakes.

    I am not saying, How would I know? The 17 major earthquakes idea is from a U.S. Geological Survey. Maybe you should do some research.

    And, I only posted the earthquakes for two months at the beginning of this year, from my understanding there are 12 months in the year.

    People grasp the truth of the article when they read correctly.
