Tenney: Don't know brother, refuse to watch Ventura. He has had a lot of truthful things appear on his show but the main message behind his show is fear. The Earth (and human consciousness) is undergoing a big shift and at the heart of it is a frequency war. The "old world order" powers that be (but are completely bankrupt now) are on their last legs trying to spread as much fear and panic amongst the world that they can...fear promotes a very slow frequency whereas love/understanding promotes a faster/healthier frequency.

I'm not religious by any means sir, but this is what is spoken of in the bible when they say "Jesus will return and god will bring heaven down to Earth after Satan is defeated." It's not the literal return of Christ, it's the return of the Christ consciousness within humanity. The "mark of the beast" is the dollar sign...and we're currently in the "end times" when we wake up from our greedy/hateful tendencies (or "god defeats Satan") and "brings heaven down to Earth". Like everything in the bible this is another metaphor. There is no heaven or hell. Heaven is just a word for the concept of peaceful nirvana.

They said all that at the turn of the millenium, the turn of the century before, the end of the World Wars, just about ever major world event since the time of "jesus". All horsesh**. The world will keep on turning, and science will keep improving until we understand as much of the world as possible. We 'might' be able to cause earthquakes, but using them in this fashion is beyond retarded.

Yea because inevitable nuclear meltdown of the Chernobyl status is really god bringing heaven down to earth or trying to give us a sign to turn back to him. I wouldn't turn to god if something like this happened. It's just humanity being stupid and not being prepared for something like this fully. God has nothing to do with this. Don't get me wrong. I hope everyone in Japan will be ok and it really sucks that all that stuff happened.
I agree with IrishMetal

R Ten. Yea possibly High On Fire. I'm not really into them but either way. Could've been the combo of the two. Or just the epic metal that Japan has in general heh heh.

Don't know if HAARP has something they can cast electronic radio waves to create earthquakes or not. If they do N Teslas rolling in his grave. Interesting to read about anyway.

Why is it beyond retarded Irish? The bloodlines who rule this planet are not strictly American and certainly don't have America's best interest in mind. Japan had been threatened multiple times by the global cabal...last year when Japan refused to hand over their financial system they were hit with two 6.8 earthquakes with the exact same epicenter and the epicenter just happened to be the biggest nuclear site Japan has. Magnetometer readings confirm a giant spike in activity right before the latest 8.9 quake.The point is the "NWO" or whatever you want to call them are bankrupt and are not receiving anymore loans. Japan still hasn't given in and the rest of the world isn't giving in either. Their fear campaign is failing. All patriotic American's should call for an end to the HAARP program or "geo-engineering" program. Bomb the generators in Iceland and Alaska. All the bird and fish deaths are a result of this technology in use. It's NOT good. You don't have to buy into the whole spiritual side of the debate to see the facts that HAARP is a very real and tangible program and America was the ONLY country at the latest UN to not sign on to the banning of said "geo-engineering" projects.

It's retarded because Japan is a country renowned for not giving in. It took not one but two atomic bombs to get them to surrender back in the War days.

They're the top in earthquake preparedness worldwide, their own economy hasn't been the strongest in the past few years either. They're notorious for not wanting foreign aid, or giving it. If HAARP was responsible, do you honestly think that the common American conspiracy theorist would know before the Japanese government? And if the government is involved, how would it in any way benefit them to cause a possible nuclear meltdown and mass panic in their populace - the japanese people already revere their leaders.

The "banning" of geo-engineering projects seems to be almost solely restricted to the planting of forests and anything that affects biodiversity.

The fact that Japan lies on a very active fault line, and earthquakes are therefore expected should give a hint why earthquakes happen. So many happen every year that it's expected some will affect nuclear reactors - I can't find anything on these concurrent 2010 quakes except for one small one that happened offshore and caused no damage at all. I

You want to believe the government is out to get you/everyone else? Fine. But it's in more everyday ways than "lol we cause earthquakes with our sooper doomsday weapon". Anyone can make a conspiracy theory out of the unknown.

As for HAARP - those readings were about for 2 and a bit days before the quake happened, and were also on a month before, when, shock horror, nothing happened.

I took a look at that link that took a while to be posted.

HAARP 'could' be used to charge storms, and weather to some degree. I accept that - super-charging water droplets is valid. Why anyone would do that is a different question altogether and you have to believe in complete psychos being in charge. However most of the disaster weather has been completely natural, and there have been worse ones in history before.

As for earthquakes? No. Magnetic field is not what causes earthquakes, it's just tension build up over years of tectonic activity, the magnetic field has nothing to do with it, any high school student can tell you that. Also, on the day of and the days preceding the earthquake, solar flares on the sun had been very prevalent. The sun naturally alters the Earth's magnetic field on a normal day, so imagine the difference when a flare hits it - ie, the increased readings on all the magnetic field measuring devices.

When a scientist turns conspiracy theorist, they leave out just about every bit of knowledge they have to the contrary and go with the small bits that do support them.

If you guys want to believe mainstream explanations then be my guest. I'm really not offended in the least if you believe I'm crazy and take too many drugs. To each his own. :)

For the record though, the people who are in control of America are complete psycho's and are in control of more than just America. The Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations, The Masonic Order, Skull and Bones...just to name a few. The Rockefellers and The Rothschilds are the two biggest bloodlines controlling North America (Canada too...Paul Martin, Jean Cretien, and of course Mr. Harper have all been reported at Bilderberg Group meetings) and Europe. I mean hell, there's even blatant evidence of a controlling regime behind the scenes printed right on the American currency. Do a little research into "the illuminati" and figure out what the all seeing eye on the capstone of the pyramid means. Translate what "Novus Ordo Seclorum" means in latin.

As Dimmu Borgir says in the song Gateways (not that Dimmu is proof in any way but I figured it's relelvant because we're on a metal website):

"It is all there for the eyes that can see...the blind ones will always suffer in secrecy. For it is the omen of what lies submerged...untouched within us"

I'm out...going to take more of my drugs and insanity juice. ;)

Sorry for the triple post but I had to clear this one up. I said in my above post that Japan DID NOT and STILL has NOT given in. Not sure what you're saying there...because I agree with you there. They don't give up. hence why they were attacked when they wouldn't hand over the Japanese financial system to the bankers ("NWO" "Illuminati" etc". The Japanese government knows...MANY nations are now allied in the fight to stop this cabal. The entire Asiatic league, most of South America, Russia, Pakistan, Iran, Venezuela just to name a few. Why cause a metldown and panic amongst Japan???? To invoke fear so they hand over their finances!? :S

Mainstream explanations for earthquakes make sense since they've been happening a lot longer than HAARP has been about. The Solar flares which caused the magnetic field changes are also old knowledge which pre-dates HAARP. You can go down the route that they've infiltrated every level of everything throughout history and have set up all our science to divert attention from what's really happening, but guess what - unlikely, improbably, stupid, and if true our lives are completely pointless in every way shape and form, and any info that leaks out is controlled.

As for all the imagery on bills, not american but I know of the base stuff on the bills, and it's not overly impressive - "we da super sekrit society, lets put our stuff for everyone to see" meanin got lost over the years, then rediscovered, no mystery.

And "I said in my above post that Japan DID NOT and STILL has NOT given in. Not sure what you're saying there...because I agree with you there. They don't give up. hence why they were attacked when they wouldn't hand over the Japanese financial system to the bankers ("NWO" "Illuminati" etc".

That is specifically why it's retarded. Japan would not give in to such tactics - ever. I know you said they're standing strong, but my statement just covered why that kind of attack would be retarded in the first place it wouldn't have as much of an effect, or even close to the desired effect.

If you give conspiracy theorists an inch, they turn on the warp drive and go inter-stellar. Hell, Hitlers still alive, he's chillin with Elvis in the south of France.

If you honestly think that a government like Japan wouldn't know that HAARP caused an earthquake (they are the premier on earthquakes tech for good reason), and that if it, would do nothing about it, I can't see anything other than a touch of the crazy there, no real offense meant.

R Tenny - I haven't done a lot of research (read, any more than the basic) into HAARP, but from what I gather it charges the ionosphere, which 'could' be used to make large storms slightly larger, more lightning. It can't just create them out of nothing though, that kinda of weather f***ery is solely due to oceans, prevailing winds and the sun. I do however know how earthquakes happen, and magnetic field changes do not cause them, hell the poles completely flip every couple of hundred thousand years.
