earthquake are made by the movement of tetonic plates or continental and oceanic crust. warping of the crust is due to tension and that can be predicted. geologist and geografist spend there life studying this kinda thing.

there are even instruments built hundred of miles underground to detect the slightest movement in the earth crust. this is useless but useful because they can see if there is stressing.

you can't make a government to be under lockdown for years because it might happen. and thats where its unpredictable. but they know if it will happen in the future r not, but there is no time length that they can predict when it may occur. any area that have mountain ranges, valley, volcano have high chances for crust activity. mount everest is growing higher and higher. just saying

u do know japan population is shrinking. chances that japan will die from lack of population. all these stuff just increase the population loss.
a country so advanced, caring more about jobs then relationship. its japans own fault really, such things like host clubs ect really have killed there need of relationships, where people just pay for fake ones. dont know if japan is doing anything to save its population but it was predicted it be 1/3 100 years from the year 2000. stuff like earthquakes will only speed it up.

(note i not insulting japan i am just dont agree with stuff like host clubs an many other thing that really kill japans population.
also i wrote this at 2:35am so my spelling grammar might be horrible)

Dude, properly source these articles.

Your being really rude to the original authors. Not to mention blatant plagiarism.


Technically, he would need to be claiming original authorship of the article(s) for it to be proper plagerism... also there are ways in writing a paper or article without needing to cite an author... BUT to avoid the "pics of it didnt happen" type responses, its best to back up your stuff with links (that arent from wikipedia). ;)

Just saying.

I know you didn't want an argument, but in the Christian faith, Jesus IS God, but in human form, so what you said is kinda...Redundant

I agree with the fact that some of the Japanese moral, and ideas are messed up, but if this country goes down, I will cry It has such an appealing nature and produces awesome stories, and from my point of view, if Japan goes down, we just lost millions of people that didn't know Jesus and will be sent to hell

I'm trying to wrap my brain around this part because I'm pretty sure they know about Jesus and Christianity since they were introduced to him via foreigners about a couple hundred years ago. It's just that it goes against what the majority believe in (Shintoism, IIRC)

And really? You're saying that if a person doesn't know about Jesus, he/she will go to hell? ...

Just saying.



1. He did not write that article.
2. He copied that article from a different source 100% word for word.
3. I provided links to the original article in a follow up post.
5. I also provided the links that original article cited.

He did not in anyway give credit to the original authors. He claimed a person translated it for him. He also claimed that the person sent it to him. Which is a lie. From the beginning, the article is sourced from a website. And is an English website. And that article is sourced to more English websites.
[He provided a false source]

Now tell me that isn't rude to the original authors. And tell me that isn't plagiarism.


I did not know there is a way to copy an entire paper or article without citing, and be able to claim it is your work. [And without changing a single word] Please explain.

Not every branch of Christianity believes that. The one that comes to mind immediately is Mormonism, although there's been a large number of historical denominations that only died off due to violent suppression.

Pretty sure most anyone that's seen the old Godzilla movie knows Tokyo is doomed anyway. More seriously though, they just had a huge earthquake a short time ago, then tsunami, and nuclear disaster, and economic disaster. From what I understood from geology class many years ago, is that with earthquakes you tend to get smaller ones as the tension in the plates gradually build up, then eventually they break loose and you get a huge earthquake, then back to smaller ones. So I would expect the recent one to have been pretty much the peak of that cycle, lest an even bigger one comes, but that seems unlikely to me anyways.
