Anyone else feel it? Like nothing I've ever experienced. I'm in a large heavily-built Victorian house and it was being shaken about something terrible. Can't help but think that there's going to be a lot of cracked new builds about the place.

Bubble, bubble, oil and trouble.

Countrywide, the UK's biggest chain of estate agents, plans to shut some of its branches after being hit by a spate of cancelled sales, the Financial Times newspaper reported on Saturday, quoting Harry Hill, Countrywide's chairman. Forbes. 18.11.07

There were 18,000+ UK Estate Agents (sales offices) according to Home.co.uk in Sept 07, a year later in Sept 08 there are just under 16,000 (and falling).

Given we're about to sign away our country, supposedly a monarchy under God, to a secular anti-Bible EU secular superstate, who will persecute orthodox Christians for not accept false creeds or immoral lifestyles, then is it surprising that we've had an earthquake? We deserve a far bigger one, I guess that's a measure of His Grace. It's not too late to repent, yet.
Don't forget: we live in a fallen world.
"Therefore do not worry, saying, ; What will we eat?' or 'What will we wear? For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Yes, this earthquake was certainly God's vengence. Such a powerful act was the wrath of heckfire being unleashed on the UK

Upon seeing the immorality of the people God told them thus:

"You have turned away from me and so I shall wreak havoc upon your garden walls and roof tiles".

And so it was that the earth trembled with a mediocre 5.3 and garden gnomes fell over. Upon seeing this the people wailed and repented but it was too late. God's might vengence had been delivered.

Shame Sodom and Gomorrah didn't get a smattering of that "grace".

Personally I'd like to see a little more margin for error but there you go.

Does that mean God will register with HPC and start mocking me in various highly witty ways?

Can I just make clear for the record, and once and for all, that god is an emotional crutch, for which most of us can and do manage well without.

You will find that this simple fact does away with the necessity to believe in heaven, hell, miracles, the devil, Santa Claus and, a new one on me, earthquake seeds.

Cheers.

PS that Galaxians score whilst showing progress, is nothing to shout about.

ignorance in bliss, doesn't make it reality
wishing away something does not make it so
