    Folks, these earthquakes happening so close together cannot be a coincidence. Mother Earth is trying to tell us something. There are too many occurring closer and closer together. The earth is rebelling. God help us all!

    Do not forget that Mother Earth's axis was slightly tilted by the Chilean earthquake in March. Then, the gravitational pull being exerted by the planets' aligning with the Sun should not be totally discounted as a cause for tectonic plate displacement, thus the increase in earthquakes. At least, that is a plausible theory.
