Magnitude-6.4 quake hits Japan hours after 6.6 temblor

A magnitude-6.4 earthquake struck Japan Tuesday morning, after a similar quake rattled the northeastern part of the country Monday evening.

The latest quake struck at about 8:08 a.m. Tuesday (7:08 p.m. Monday ET), according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It had a depth of about 13 kilometers (8 miles) and was centered about 77 kilometers (47 miles) east-southeast of Tokyo.

Earlier, a 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck Monday night, on the one-month anniversary of the country's devastating 9.0-magnitude quake and tsunami.

    12  and because lawlessness will increase so much, the love of many will grow cold. 21  For then there will be great suffering unlike anything that has happened from the beginning of the world until now, or ever will happen. 27  For just like the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. (Matthew 24:12,21,27 NET)

      There has been lawlessness since the beginning of man: Cain and Able. What is new under this sun? Nothing! The world goes on, and it's just the way of the world.

    Since January 1, 2011, there have been at least 1 Magnitude 6 or above earthquake every 2 days. More than at any time since history been recording them. 2011 has more Mag 6+ earthquakes than any year since 1900 and we just in the 4th month. http://www.thehorizonproject.com/earthquakes.cfm

    If you take a look at the website USGS which maps all earthquakes you might get a sense of proportion about events.
    Also the Earth is a tiny part of the Omnisphere for want of a better word. The entropy of billions of galaxies will create everchanging cycles. The sun has a more direct effect. See Spaceweather.com. Some pootling writings by mostly jumped up introspective men have nothing to do with it.

    Poor Japan. They continue to endure sooooo much!

    Going to church doesn't make you a good Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car. Remember that, people.

    12  None of us know when we might fall victim to a sudden disaster and find ourselves like fish in a net or birds in a trap.(Ecclesiates 9:12 CEV)

    3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” 5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.(2 Peter 3:3-7 NKJV)

    9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9 NKJV)
