7.0 earthquake strikes near Vanuatu in South Pacific

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 struck Sunday morning off the southern tip of the South Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The quake struck about 75 miles (122 km) southeast of Isangel, the administrative capital of the island of Tanna, and 134 miles (217 km) northeast of New Caledonia's Loyalty Islands.

A tsunami alert has not been issued for the South Pacific or the U.S. western coast.

    I believe that there will be an end of the possibility of life on earth.
    It is extremely unlikely that anyone living now wiLl live until that time.
    The Bible is a successful literary venture, and it has sold extremely well. It has comforted many people, and it has caused many people to live miserable lives and even to die.
    It contains some beautiful passages, but it is fiction.
