Increasing Evidence of Severe Earthquakes

By: Dr. J. P. Hubert

Apropos my suspicion that we are currently living in the era of the Great (Universal) Apostasy and that most if not all of the elements are now in place which must occur prior to the appearance of the Antichrist, I provide some additional information. Find HERE... a link to data on severe Earthquakes throughout history beginning with the August 24, 79 A.D. eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in Italy which buried the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum that is thought to have killed many thousands of people.

The fascinating albeit disconcerting thing is that prior to 1960 there were roughly 35 severe earthquakes in the period from 79 A.D. through the 1950's. Since then in a period of less than 50 years there have been 50 severe earthquakes (roughly 1 per year) and 26 in the past 10 years alone (roughly 2.5 per year). In 2007 and 2008 there were 6 earthquakes per year representing a marked increase.

These data demonstrate that the incidence of severe earthquakes is steadily increasing particularly in the past decade but markedly so in the past 2 years. There have been a total of just 85 severe earthquakes in 1930 years. Roughly 2/3 of all earthquakes in that period of time have occurred in the past 50 years. This is highly significant and would not be expected on the basis of chance alone.

For those earthquakes which were evaluated since the development of the Richter scale, the minimum value necessary for inclusion in the "severe" category seems quite consistent at greater than 7.0. One caveat which must be mentioned however is that prior to 1900 and the development of the Richter scale technology, these data were not available. However, for the pre-1900 cohort only those in which a large number of deaths resulted were included which would seem to constitute a roughly equivalent measure of severity.

Given what we know from Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition these data strongly suggest that the so-called "birth pains" of Matt. 24: 5-8 have begun especially when combined with the other signs which are now present including; "the gospel has been preached throughout the known world, wars, rumors of wars, famines, other severe climate changes, the love of many (horrendous crime and abuse even among families) has grown cold, universal Apostasy and new serious disease manifestations." Obviously, I may have misinterpreted the severity or significance of any of these "signs" which would mean that the birth pains have not yet begun. That is, since no one knows how precisely to interpret the signs a large degree of variability is possible that would result in very different conclusions with respect to the timing involved.

In any case, given the uncertainty involved it seems necessary now more than ever to end the Novus Ordo Missae, reinstitute the Tridentine Latin Mass of Pius V and to either radically correct or totally reject the Second Vatican Council and the conciliar church which has grown out of it.

What/Where is the Roman Catholic Church?

In light of Traditional Catholic dogma/doctrine, how should the Second Vatican Council be viewed ? Is it consistent with Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition and prior Magisterial teaching?

What explains the tremendous amount of "bad fruit" which has been forthcoming since the close of the Council in 1965? “By their fruits you shall know them” (Matt. 7:16)

This site explores these questions and more in an attempt to place the Second Vatican Council in proper perspective.
