      Humans did not cause this quake, despite what other commenters and conspiracy sites tell you. Earthquakes are a part of life.

    6.0-6.9 earthquakes occur on average of 120 times a year. The only reason this one is spoken of is because of the events of a few weeks ago. Hopefully there will be no new damage. I will be praying for the people of Honshu.

    The planet simply got rid of over population, happens all the time. Recycling and other efforts are not worth our time. The earth will destory the harmful effects man leaves behind and start anew.
