My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Japan.

My heart goes out to all the people effected

I'm seriously waiting for one of those dumbass doesn't-know-what-the-****-he's-talking-about preachers calling this "The Wrath Of God Brought On By The Sinners Of Mankind"

Now before I get flamed, let me explain

If you'll recall from the bible (not to offend any atheists, bear with me), God made a promise to Noah that after the 40 day flood that he wouldn't interfere with the actions of man anymore

I really get a kick out of all these people who THINK THEY KNOW THE BIBLE when they haven't even read it

No flame here nor trying to argue, but God does indeed interfere with actions of man all the time. Otherwise this world would be in worst shape than it already is. The rainbow represents God's promise that he wouldn't flood the earth anymore.

If anything, this earthquake is just a sign of the times. People do not know the day or the hour, so the 2012 conspiracies got to go.

My friend's coastal city is on fire. He is very worried. :(

Please pray for Kesennuma and all of the affected families, cities and Japan. :(

The earth's axis rotates on a angle. I.E not vertical when referenced against the horizontal "plane" upon which the planet orbits the sun.

Over the course of centuries the earth's axis naturally tends to wander around in circular pattern kinda similar to how a spinning top starts to wobble when it slows down to the point where it is no longer spin stabilised.

That is what they will mean when they say the earth's axis has moved.
The planet physically rotated slightly from the force of the quake.
It won't affect maps on the ground but it means that star charts need to be amended to take into account that we are now facing in slightly a different direction.

Prove it.

But seriously: two earthquakes, one of which spawned a tsunami, and a bunch of fires. Nature sucks when it does everything at once.
