Italians were fleeing Rome yesterday over fears a giant earthquake is coming following a seismologist's 1915 prediction that "the big one" will strike today.


From www.telegraph.co.uk

I'm not sure if there is a Earthquake in Rome today, What do members think?

I think it's ridiculous. You can't predict Earthquakes.

Meanwhile in Spain: http://www.bbc.co.uk...europe-13368599

At least 10 people were killed after a magnitude-5.2 earthquake toppled several buildings in southern Spain near the town of Lorca, officials say.


Unrelated really, but an interesting coincidence. I'm wondering what the reaction from Rome is going to be, if they feel the need to speculate further on the subject.
For everyone's sake, watch this video

He predicted the Wrong Country.. :p Earthquakes are a result of underground structures breaking as a result of stress. This is due to the fact that plates shift around on the mantle. Not very predictible, i doubt we would be able to accurately predict earthquakes for a hundered years if ever. We would need to be able to analyze and map stresses in rock formations kilometers below the ground.

Not to long after the 2nd Christchurch earthquake some guy said there will be another massive one, worse than the last two big ones on I think it was the 20th of March, caused some people to flee. Naturally, it didn't happen and then he said "I only said it MAY happen", when previously he said it would. I think the internet has made fear-mongering far to easy for some, Above Top Secret is the prime example, lots of predictions without any backing almost everyday, yet the predictions always come wrong.

I did see this in the news, saddens me to think people in 2011 have such little knowledge about global tectonic forces and are generally concerned for their safety from a 1915 prediction based on the idea planetary orbits could control earthquakes.
