    Who would have thought that this blog would have tuned out to be a combat zone for atheists and Christians! Truth is trutn and that will not change no matter how much each side bashes the other. An earth quake happened and that isn't going to change anything either (unless there was some damage done.)

    @Banasy-7:53 Well, why don't the just say:It's forum day folks, talk about what ever pleases your dumpling!" Do you think it might get the same results?

    @bondo jamie: I'm pretty sure the majority of people realized there wasn't a major tsunami predicted which is the actual reason why very few people commented on your statement.
