    It started slow like a very slow whine then got more vigorous before the shaking stopped. Was beginning to panic as I was not sure when it would stop. So I cool for now until the next one…..

    The earthquake is a sign from Allah to those that live in sin and that do not honour his name and wise teaching, and a message to his redeemers to keep the faith until his most glorious return to exact his justice on the blasphemers. Have faith, Allah is near.

    Who is this person called God? Have you ever seen Him/Her? Where is She/He hiding, and why so?

    Face it people, you’re on your own, you are descendants of orphans brought here by aliens because your forefathers’ home planet was becoming uninhabitable.

    Yes, God was the name of the alien leader, his spaceship carved the ten commandments with lazer (the finger of God) on that mountain. It’s there in your bible. Read and learn of your origin..you are ppl of the skies.

    You’re on your own.

      1 John 4:12-13

      No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit.

      Funny huh! 500 years ago your ancestors had no idea who or what this god was. That same God guided the white man to your land. Raped and enslaved your kin with your lands their property to this day. Yet you praise and worship their god. A god that sat idly by while 30 million of you were killed in the slave trade is an evil bastard. Perhaps you should rethink who or what you worship. Amazing how stupid you negroes are.

    Come on people, we can count our blessings. 5.8 is a big feller. There are some parts of the world, a 5.8 will leave a toil of destruction. We are lucky for now. But not all the time our luck will run.give thank and praise to God.for he is good and continue to protect us. I believe we are entering the earthquake zone. Wait for the big one it’s coming anytime this month. To be exact.. Before month end.hope you”ll remember that email. And what I have said. When it happens please reprint this email.
