Self-proclaimed prophet says massive quake will hit Taiwan on Wednesday

A Taiwanese man is predicting that a massive earthquake will strike Taiwan on Wednesday morning, killing more than a million people, but an official with the country's National Science Council says there's no indication of any seismic movements.

The self-proclaimed prophet, a blogger who calls himself Teacher Wang, has predicted that a 14-magnitude quake will strike the island at 10:42:37 a.m. local time Wednesday. It will be followed by a massive tsunami more than 550 feet (170 meters) high on May 17, Wang has said, according to news reports from Taiwan.

"The final countdown has started," the prophet, whose real name is Wang Chao-hung, told Agence France-Presse on Tuesday, according to a report in the Straits Times.

The dual catastrophes will "rip the island in half," Wang has said, according to a report on Focus Taiwan.

Wang has been assembling hundreds of shipping containers in Puli in Nantou County to shelter himself and his followers, the China Post reported. Tons of rice along with bottled water and diesel fuel have been stockpiled, news reports said.

But National Science Council Deputy Minister Chen Cheng-hong told Focus Taiwan that checks of earthquake indicators, including groundwater levels, soil gas composition and magnetic intensity, have given no indication of an impending superquake.

"Everything looks smooth, " Chen told Focus Taiwan.

The largest earthquake ever recorded was a 9.5-magnitude temblor in Chile in 1960, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. March's earthquake off Japan measured 9.0 in magnitude and spawned a deadly tsunami.

    Remember that time in 1992 when Camping said the exact same thing? Remember all those times over the past 2000 years when every 'prophet' said the end of the world will happen on [insert date here]?

    Remember when Matthew said that 'This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled'?

    Yeah, just like that. I look forward to May 22nd, when Camping lies and says he never said anything would happen...Again.

    Hi Noah,
    Very interesting name and it fits this topic. God said as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be. Did Noah know the time of the flood(judgment)? The ansawer is yes, you can read about it in Gen 7. God gave Noah a 7 day warning. Remember, as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be. God is giving His people the same warning. Only, it will be exactly 7000 years to the day that Noah and his family got on the ark. May 21 just happens to be the 2nd month of the 17th day of the hebrew calendar!!!

    There are 10 days left to beg God for mercy, who can tell, maybe God will have mercy. Just like when God warned the Ninivites about the time of judgment, they too knew the exact time of God's judgment. They cried mightily unto God for mercy saying, who can tell , maybe God will have mercy Jonah 3:8

    For more information about May 21 2011 being the beginning of God's judgment you can go to

    We read in 1 Thes.5:1-4 That Christ is coming back as a thief. But if we read this more carefuly we find He is coming back for those in darknes(unbelievers) as a thief, they will not know the time. The believers will know that May 21 is the time of His return. The wise men knew of His first coming, the wise(believers) will know of His second coming.

    Hi Doug,
    If you read 1 Thes.5:1-4. You will find that Christ is coming as a thief for those in darknes(unsaved).
    Those in darkness will not know when Christ will be coming, They might have heard that May 21 2011 is His return but this means nothing to them. But, the believers will know both time and judgment as we read in Ecclesiastes 8:5
    Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment.

    We also read in Revalation 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

    Once again we see that those watching(through the Bible) we not be taken as a thief because they will know the hour(time).
    May 21 2011 will be that time of God's judgment.

    Children are most successful because of spontaneity, to define the game and find his place in the world. They freely enter into dialogue with the unseen and unconscious metamorphosis commit. For example, they can change the real world paradise, if we look through his eyes Nica from Humulesti or self-metamorphosis can turn into different characters: "... closing the eyes, open Danut Turbinca Ivan ... Danut or Sultan's care: he has to do it! ..] Sultan sits on a throne of gold ..] Harapii one grabbed the Olguta. Olguta crooked and kicking the Sultan. So! Welcome! ... ... Olguta Moor pick ax is scared ... I have to defend anyone but her brother-NTR Danut ... And indeed, leading an army, as Michael the Brave, Danut comes ..] and get rid of the death Olguta and Monica "(John Teodoreanu -" La Medeleni)
    By mistake, but a child may assume inappropriate roles and age. Barbu Ion's hero of the poem, "After the snails' wants to be a shaman (witch) and, therefore, utters a spell.
    The word magic manages to pull out of the shell, in the middle of winter, a snail. The cold, it dies and the child remains with the feeling of guilt. It is true that after such a child experiences any sudden mature. He understands in a moment that the game is made for those beginners that if not follow the rules, it can harm those around them and thus to himself. But it's worth, in the name of initiation, a sacrifice?. cooking games[/url
