Promiscuity causes . . . Earthquakes?

News to me. While I can think of many things promiscuity might impact, never thought it was the crust of the Earth. Well that is if you pay attention to a certain Iranian cleric. So let us not forget everyone's favorite Christian religious . . . well it would be less than polite to use the words I am thinking. So let's just say Pat Robertson and forget the adjectives. Remember his remarks about the Earthquake in Haiti. We won't even remind you of his comments about Dover Pa. You can Google that one for yourself.

OK, so let's look at the facts. Since 2000 Iran, a country you might not think as a bastion of promiscuous women, has had 7 major quakes with a death toll of over 32,000 people. Let's compare that to a few other countries. How about Great Britain? The UK had 2 . . . that's it, 2 and let's see how many fatalities? None! So based on Pat Robertson and Kazem Sedighi that means Great Britain is a more moral place than Iran. Nice to know.

Let's really annoy some folks. How many earthquakes has Israel had since 2000? Believe it or now, just one, and no fatalities. So I wonder how the Sedighi and even the Iranian President, Ahmadinejad, realizes how morally superior Israel is . . . based on their own words! That's gotta hurt :-)

Of course you should realize that this whole idea is nothing but the 'night soil of a well fed bull'. A little science education might go a long way. While we might not be to the point of predicting the time and date of earthquakes, but even a basic understanding of Geology makes more sense than these . . . people. I am not even talking a high school understanding, but by the 6th grade kids have a better understanding than them. Of course most 6th graders aren't trying to use a well understood and NATURAL event stir up fear. That's these guys stock in trade, fear not education. Pretty sad commentary.


  1. We've had promiscuity and earthquakes as long as humans have been on the planet. Coincidence? I don't think so.

  2. There's an ongoing attempt to test this. See
