Quote from: ziznak on September 02, 2012, 09:32:14 PMWhat's your take on possible earthquakes caused by the activities of man? Could the draining of lake Mead lead to some sort of earth shift due to the relief of pressure? Sort of like the opposite of the Chinese quake I have no source information for...
Quote from: UFO Fill on September 03, 2012, 04:01:57 AMYeah, but do you explain why dogs and cats run away before the earthquake?
Quote from: expat on September 03, 2012, 02:59:39 PMI thought it was radon gas.
Quote from: Harmness on September 03, 2012, 09:45:15 PMOh, you and your data. You'll never get that guest spot on Coast to Coast if you don't start making shit up.
Quote from: ziznak on September 03, 2012, 03:05:42 PMHaven't read/heard of the radon gas theory whats that about?
Quote from: Mind Flayer Monk on September 04, 2012, 06:59:47 AMDid you consider pulling earthquake data that is easily available from other countries (especially Japan)?Also instead of focusing on Southern California/USGS data, did you consider doing a random sampling of available global earthquake data?Sorry not trying to bog you down from an interesting post, but is there any chance a hidden Markov model would have any worth?
Quote from: astroguy on September 03, 2012, 03:22:29 PMI have no actual data regarding missing animals. I know that's a claim by Berkland and Cal Orey among others, but that's much less astronomy and not something I looked into. It's also not something that's easily available as an easy, downloadable database.
Quote"The whole idea that earthquake prediction is impossible, that's gotta be ditched right now. It's absurd on the face of it. We've measured the background radiation of the Big Bang from 14 years -- 14 billion years ago, that's possible but lonely little earthquake prediction isn't?! We've cataloged the whole genome of the human race, 3.5 billion combinations. That wasn't impossible. Well, who said earthquake prediction was impossible by the way? Albert Einstein? Isaac Newton? I've looked, I can't find it. A few goofy people at USGS have said it, and then they've latched onto it from 100 years ago and that's been the orthodoxy, the Byzantine orthodoxy that we're sluggishly dragging along into the 21st century."
