In this new story over at WND and the first two videos below, we learn that mysterious booms being heard not only across America but around the world are increasing in intensity, shaking buildings and rattling nerves, with earthquakes being ruled out as the cause of most of these with no official explanation yet forthcoming.
Leaving experts baffled and conspiracy theorists talking about alien invasions and top secret military experiments, we find it interesting that this latest round of mysterious booms and blasts comes at the same time that scientists are warning there could be a big increase in numbers of devastating earthquakes around the world in 2018 as our planet Earth's rotation slows according to this new story from The Guardian which the Drudge Report linked to on Sunday.
From the east coast to the west, from Idaho to Alabama to Texas to Maryland to South Carolina to Florida and many states in between, the loud and mysterious booms that experts still can't explain are expanding and as we see in the next graphic below from VolcanoDiscovery.com, much of the 'Ring of Fire' is ablaze with volcanoes either going through major eruptions or still going through minor volcanic activity everywhere we look.
According to this recent story over at Strange Sounds, some of the other possible explanations for the return of the mysterious booms are 'frost quakes', military exercises, a large fireworks display, the testing of avalanche equipment and of course, UFO's. When no better explanations are given, we turn our eyes to the skies for answers.
While according to a Russian Orthodox Patriarch, what we're now witnessing all across the world is evidence that we are approaching 'end times' as shared in this story over at RT that the Drudge Report linked to on Monday, claiming that we're witnessing events straight from the Book of Revelation, we find the explanation that the rotation of our planet is slowing down quite interesting. First, from the RT story and more on that in our conclusion below.
In a public speech in the main Moscow cathedral, Patriarch Kirill said the signs from the Book of Revelation are now apparent. He also called on politicians and ordinary citizens to unite and stop the movement towards the abyss.
“All people who love the Motherland must be together because we are entering a critical period in the course of human civilization. This can already be seen with the naked eye. You have to be blind not to notice the approaching awe-inspiring moments in history that the apostle and evangelist John was talking about in the Book of Revelation,” the patriarch was quoted as saying by Interfax.
According to this new story over at Quartz, scientists will be testing out a new theory in 2018 and if they are correct, our planet Earth could be suffering from a lot of big earthquakes next year and in fact, most of us are completely unprepared for what might be coming.
Sharing with us their theory that while the rotation of the Earth is slowing down but the average human is unable to detect the slowing, we have to ask if the slowing is due to the still officially unfound 'planet 9'? We hear more about this 'slowing down' of our planet Earth's rotation in the final video below. To close, from the Quartz story.: Every so often, the Earth’s rotation slows by a few milliseconds per day. This is inconsequential to the average human, and causes only mild annoyance to the people whose job it is to measure Earth’s rotation with great precision.
That may be about to change, if the hypothesis set out by two geologists proves true. In a study published in Geophysical Research Letters earlier this year, Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado and Rebecca Bendick of the University of Montana predict that, because of Earth’s slowing rotation, the world will see a significant spike in large earthquakes in 2018.
To make this prediction, Bilham and Bendick studied every earthquake since 1900 that recorded more than 7.0 on the moment magnitude scale. They found that approximately every 32 years, there is an uptick in these large quakes. The only factor that strongly correlates is a slight slowing of the Earth’s rotation in a five-year period before the uptick.
“The inference is clear,” Bilham told the Guardian. “Next year we should see a significant increase in numbers of severe earthquakes.” Instead of an average of about 15-20 large earthquakes, we might see 25 or 30 in 2018. Bilham can’t tell with any certainty where these might take place. Many large earthquakes occur in places where they don’t affect human life, but in the wrong spot they can wreak havoc.
