Large earthquakes rock Indonesia, Western Australia
A massive earthquake has hit off the remote Maluku Islands in eastern Indonesia with panicked residents running into the streets.
The quake comes hours after Western Australia felt its strongest ever earthquake, which shook residents from Broome to as far south as Perth.
The Indonesian quake struck about 165 kilometres south-southwest of the town of Ternate in North Maluku province at 6:28pm local time, at a depth of 10 kilometres, according to the US Geological Survey.
Imagine simultaneous earthquakes in every country of the world, along with associated psunamis, hurricanes, severe flooding, forest fires everywhere, the heavenly bodies shaken et al. The alarm clock ought be sounding by now, "It is time to seek the Lord, today, not tomorrow, today is the day of salvation. If ye hear his voice harden not your heart, but turn to him in penitence and faith in Jesus Christ, and pray this prayer after me: "God be merciful (propitious) to me, a sinner!"
The blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, God's Son, is your only hope, and it is the only hope you need. There you find an atonement for your sins, pardon, and peace with God. Therefore "be ye reconciled to God" and become a new creature in Christ Jesus, born of his Spirit and washed in his blood, set on your way to heaven, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. Hallelujah and Amen!
QC, I certainly wouldn't deny that these were acts of God but how to interpret them, is an important question. It was pointed out then this following article that there isn't any more earthquake activity the normal anyway.

Both Mr Allen and Ms King said the timing was coincidental and the two earthquakes did not appear to have been linked in any way.
"It's highly unlikely that the event off the West Australian coast triggered the event off Indonesia," Mr Allen said.
"Anything is possible but it's highly unlikely." ....
