3.4-magnitude quake hits Virginia

A 3.4-magnitude earthquake rattled Mineral, Virginia, early Thursday, nine days after a 5.8-magnitude temblor in the same area shook up much of the eastern United States.

Thursday's quake, which struck at 5:09 a.m., was centered four miles south-southeast of Mineral at a depth of about three miles, according to preliminary data from the U.S. Geological Survey.

    The way I see it my fellow readers is that if GOD was to come tomorrow to save you, you will crucify him again and again that is why he will come in your darkness

      Criminy. Although I know there is nothing to loose you of your delusions; I will explain that God is real, ultimately scientifically verifiable, and sane. Not only is He real–His love is beyond your comprehension. So, the Good News: You're not going to Hell, and you will be 'saved', even speaking of things for which you cannot sympathize (God's true power). The bad news: You have to figure it out for yourself.

      Those who believe in him will never crucify him, for he is our Lord and Savior. The only true redeemer.

    Good grief robert,such tea-party lingo. You must be a fan of Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann. It is obvious that you support the disgusting war in the Middle East. Shame on you!

    Joe: I agree with you. Obama has tried to do his best for the people of the United States of America, but the Republican party is so afraid of him and afraid that he will be re-elected that they are trying to stop him any way that they can, even if it means destroying this country to do it. Wow. It is amazing how people don't use good logic.

      There is more than one 'Terrance Wood', here. 😉 I'm T.J., the real T.J. *musical interlude* Anyways, no matter, it all started with me trying to mimic insanity. Not that easy, if you're really trying. Not that I claim to be all that 'sane'. 😀

      Reproof is a tool, given from God. It isn't to be used as a weapon, rather, it is to be used as a life saving device. Only God is good, if you don't remember anything else I say to you, remember that.
