    Jesus said that an increase of Earthquakes would be one sign of the last days of this system at Matt 24:7.

    I didn't see any statistics on that site during my brief visit, but nevertheless, an increase in awareness and reporting isn't the same as an increase. If you had accurate data concerning the earthquake pattern worldwide over the past 2000 + years, I'd be interested in seeing it. Otherwise, instant global news can make many things we were previously unaware of seem more common.

    edit: Geez, Louise! Did you read the passage you quoted? It just says that there will be earthquakes and famine, not an increase thereof. There is no known time in history that doesn't include earthquakes and famine. That's like saying "babies will be born and old men will die."

    I believe that other parts of the Bible mention an increase in wars too.
    However, neither earthquakes nor wars are increasing, so your desire for the end times will not be fulfilled any time soon.

    Of course all this rather contradicts the other claim that I believe is somewhere in the Bible ie that you will not be able to predict the end of the world.

    It is a great site, and if you look hard enough there is a page explaining that earthquakes aren't increasing.

    Earthquake History
    There have been a lot of posts recently that imply a sudden
    increase in earthquake activity. Here are some statistics going back to 1970. With each passing decade (over the last 30 years), the number of earthquakes
    worldwide has been increasing progressively.

    For example, in 1970 there were only 4,139; but last year there
    were 23,575. -- Pretty scary stuff! Below are the actual numbers:

    Read left to right -- lowest year to highest year.

    1970-1979
    Total 4139 4507 4548 5175 4996 5318 6308 5775 6428 7161

    1980-1989
    Total 7348 6829 7747 9842 10493 13115 12718 11290 12711 14585

    1990-1999
    Total 16612 16516 19548 21476 19371 21007 19938 19872 21688 20832 22256 (2000) 23575 (2001)

    24:7 nation will rise against nation , kingdom against kingdom there will be famines and earthquakes in places. 24:8 all these are the beginning of birth pains.
    So in efect not the end but the start of the end, tho some would say the beginning of the end started when jesus left the world. but it will come like a thief in the night, so be ready at all times

    are you seriously claiming that since the utterance of the prophecy that neither war nor seismic activity has increased the casualties incurred, for if you are dear whitey, your in for a severe thrashing!

    Rob, we've been through this before.

    It's not that there are more earthquakes, we can locate them better.

    is it that earthquake activity is increasing or possibly that earthquake detection is getting better and more detailed?

    That's it Trev.

    In the 1930's there were around 350 earthquake detection stations, today there are over 8,000. This isn't rocket science, merely common sense.

    So Christ might return when the number of detection stations reach 12,000 .... .😀

    ummm i dont know if you Noobs noticed, but the data i posted from 1970s to year 2000 was intended for the very reason that someone may try to circumvent the facts with this very line of reasoning that you mention Trev, the question remains, has reporting then got significantly better since the 1970s, not in correlation to the increase of seismic activity i dont think.

    I am claiming that since the utterance of the prophecy neither the frequency of wars nor seismic activity has increased. The causalities have almost certainly increased simply due to the greater population.
    I am also making a similar claim for the last 100 years or so. I am not sure how you would measure wars, but I am fairly certain that the world is more peaceful now than it has ever been in the past.

    However, galveston75 is probably thinking mostly about what he has seen in the news this year, which is certainly not statistically significant.
