    Everytime there is a major disaster, some DUmmy claims that it is the fault of humans. With no further ado, I give you:

    The earth is keeps sending loud messages to change course. It is just a matter of time before the
    Peninsula here in California gets hit with a sunami. I think we are too late and the planet will do whatever she can to heal herself.
    And some of the replies in the thread:

    56. the shape of our planet is determined by the ice caps
    and what happens when we melt 10 million years worth of ice in 200 years?

    15. I loved the line in the Matrix that talks about humans being a virus
    destroying as we move across the planet.

    We are doing damage to the planet. Cause and effect.

    19. No one thinks drilling multiple miles into the earth could
    cause plates to shift, because I do.

    If you believe that earthquakes and tsunamis are caused by an angry God wrecking vengenance upon humanity for our sins, then I guess then earthquakes could ultimately be considered caused by humans.

    But most of them over there are not very religious, so I guess they have to come up with some theory outside of science to explain things that have scientifically documented causes.

    Everyone get ready to e-mail a picture of your hand, OK?
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    For the lurkers...take this back and educate your stupid friends on this thread:

    What caused the earthquake?

    The massive earthquake near the east coast of Honshu, Japan, occurred as a result of faults on or near the subduction zone -- the interface plate boundary between the Pacific and North America plates, the USGS said.

    The Pacific plate thrusts underneath Japan at the Japan Trench, and dips to the west beneath Eurasia; these rocky plates cover the planet like a giant jigsaw puzzle and creep past one another at a very slow rate. The Pacific plate moves approximately westwards with respect to the North America plate at a velocity of 3.2 inches per year. The release of energy as the the two plates move past each other is what causes the earthquakes.

    The Japan Trench subduction zone is relatively volatile, experiencing 9 earthquakes of magnitude 7 or greater since 1973. The largest of these was a 7.8 magnitude earthquake approximately 162 miles (260 km) to the north of the March 11 event, in December 1994, which caused 3 fatalities and almost 700 injuries, the USGS said. In June of 1978, a 7.7 magnitude earthquake in the area caused 22 fatalities and over 400 injuries.

    An oil drill caused a tectonic plate to shift?

    That's like saying my house fell down because I poked it with a toothpick.
