What is happening to this world? After a series of high magnitute earthquakes now comes land slides and floods. People in China, India and Pak are having worst situation now.
It seems natural calamities are increasing day by day.
pakistan is having worst flood since last 80 years...that is true..India only few parts are effected and is not as bad as pakistan..china too is facing worst situation is some parts...it is not that natural calamities are increasing day by day..it has always been like that..only since new media has came into being..flow of information is faster...
Natural calamities have occured every day since time began - just because the news did not arrive via Fux News or some other distortion of the truth tv fiction dows not mean it did not happen.
Nothing is ay different, relax and chill out and keep back from the edge
You see powerful earth Quake again - Now in other part of the work -New Zealand (7.2)
Number of earth quakes in the world is really increasing.
No they are not - look a the stats not at the reporting on the sensationlist news.
In fact I doubt that the NZ quake will even make the US news - I mean no one died - and only 2 seriously injuried. What's to report about that? Property damage? Boring! What about the fact that the quake as was as shallow and as strong as Haiti - but caused minimal injries and no loss of life - why? Because a) it happened in the middle of the night b) lower pop density and c) and most important - good building standards
There are billions and billions of people existing now, whereas in the past there were only a few millions...
More people living in more places (especially those artificially manipulated by people themselves) with greater connectivity globally means that the perception of "times of calamity such as never before on the face of the earth" can be created.....
But this earth has faced far worse, more catastrophic events....
So many people, especially those peddling apocalyptic principles, are so human-centric that they have become blinded to larger reality...
The end is near! All ye non-believers repent...I'm serious.
..even if all humans end..world wont end..it is we humans who give too much importance to ourselves...life would continue...it began well before humans and it wont end with humans...till sun does last and earth is conducive..some or other species would live...
Only 70 years ago, if something happened outside your own country you would not even hear about it. Now any time anything happens it's in your face.
Allow me to update you on what will happen in the next week worldwide:
1. There will be bombings and other violent acts
2. Storms will rip apart homes
3. Earthquakes will shake parts of the word
4. Volcano's will rumble, maybe even blow
5. Floods will get people wet
6. Other parts of the world will be very dry
7. I will still not get any,,,,
So another words, the world will have another normal week,,,,
You won't get any? Perhaps you should try living in greeks world.
@pisean - you may find the the extent of the flooding in Pakistan has a lot more to do with deforestation than the amount of rain - not natural at all - just man's stupiditiy. I don't agree with environmenatlists much but I think they are right on that one.
How do you explain the wild fires in Russia and now today I read about floods in Australia....
The floods in Australia is because there has been a long drought - now that its rained there is way too much run off because the land is farmed and very, very hard. The natural bush would have absorbed the water better. Its a natrual cycle of drought and flood that occurs in all semi-arid areas. The fact is that floods are a whole lot better than drought for that area of Victoria.
Forest fires have always happened - in fact the Australian bush can't germinate without fire! The problem with humans is that a) we live in fire prone areas and b) we plant forests of the same species so when it burns its more distructive because we stopped the small fires which happen naturally.
@catering101 - really? Do we create volcanoes and earthquakes too?
Clearly it's all man's doing. What we do affects the environment...the result of our actions starts to be evident through this calamities. We never do learn, to be honest...

What do you think of natural calamities?Natural calamities do occur, what do you think? Is it God's punishment? How do you justify for the sufferings of innocents? Are there any lessons? Do you think sometimes human becomes the initiater for such calamities?

What is the cause of frequent natural calamities all over the world?

Do you consider the devastation from the tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, etc., 'Acts of God' ?If the Bible teaches that God is love, how do you reconcile causing death and destruction with being a loving God? What about Satan? He is called the ruler of this earth? What part does he play in the...

In December of 2012, what do you think will truly happen to the earth as we know it? Let's deeply debate this for a moment, because in all honesty, no one truly knows. Could it be a meteor, an enlightenment, tsunamis, earthquakes, a second coming? What is the true meaning behind...

Why do natural calamities take place?I do not want to know about the scientific reason. I want to know from those who believe in God and state that even a single leaf can not move without His permission. Whether it is His desire to destroy universe.
