Tsunami On Camera

Story:

ome Muslims believe that the December 26th tsunami was caused by Indians, Israelis and Americans (i.e. the Hindus, Jews, and Christians).

The earthquake that struck the Indian Ocean on December 26, triggering a series of huge waves called tsunami, “was possibly” caused by an Indian nuclear experiment in which “Israeli and American nuclear experts participated,” an Egyptian weekly magazine reported Thursday.According to Al-Osboa’, India, in its heated nuclear race with Pakistan, has lately received sophisticated nuclear know-how from the United States and Israel, both of which “showed readiness to cooperate with India in experiments to exterminate humankind.”

Since 1992, the magazine argued, leading geological centers in Britain, Turkey and other countries, warned of the need “not to hold nuclear experiments in the region of the Indian Ocean known as ‘the Fire Belt,’ in which the epicenter of the earthquake lies.

Geologists labeled that region ‘The Fire Belt’ for being “a dangerous terrain that can move at anytime, without human intervention,” Al-Osboa’ wrote.

Despite warnings not to carry out nuclear experiments in and around the ‘Fire Belt’, “Israel and India continue to conduct nuclear tests in the Indian Ocean, and the United States has recently decided to carry out similar tests in the Australian deserts, which is included in the ‘Fire Belt’, the Egyptian weekly magazine wrote.

“Last year only, Arab and Islamic states have asked the United States to stop its nuclear activities in that region, and to urge Israel and India to follow suite,” Al-Osboa’ reported.

Although Al-Osboa’ does not rule out the possibility that the tsunami could have been caused by a natural earthquake it speculates however that, “while it has not been proved yet, there has been a joint Israeli-Indian secret nuclear experiment [conducted on December 26] that caused the earthquake.”

The Egyptian weekly magazine concludes in its report that “the exchange of nuclear experts between Israel and India, and US pressure on Pakistan which is exerted by supplying India with state-of-the-art nuclear technology and preventing Islamabad from cooperating with Asian and Islamic states in the nuclear field, pose a big question mark on the causes behind the violent Asian earthquake.”

Incitement against Israel and Jews in Egyptian media is usually limited to the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict yet exceptions are known to occur.

In August 2002, the Paris Supreme Court summoned Ibrahim Naafi’, editor of the Egyptian daily Al-Ahram, for having authorized the publication of a controversial article entitled ‘Jewish matza is made from Arab blood’ in the October 28, 2000 edition of the paper.

Naafi’ was charged with incitement to anti-Semitism and racist violence…

Lemuria Historical Proof.

In Tamils on May 6, 2013 at 09:31

 

References in Malaysian, Indonesian History speak of a tie with Tamils as also the Tamil Literature from as  early as The Sangam Period.

I have provided some links for one to proceed

‘The anomalies of the Mammal fauna of Madagascar can best be explained by supposing that anterior to the existence of Africa in its present shape, a large continent occupied parts of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans stretching out towards (what is now) America to the west, and to India and its islands on the east; that this continent was broken up into islands, of which some have became amalgamated with the present continent of Africa, and some, possibly, with what is now Asia; and that in Madagascar and the Mascarene Islands we have existing relics of this great continent, for which as the original focus of the “Stirps Lemurum,” I should propose the name Lemuria!”

In later works he was more cautious:

“This fact would seem to show that the ancient “Lemuria”, as the hypothetical continent which was originally the home of the Lemurs has been termed, must have extended across the Indian Ocean and the Indian Peninsula to the further side of the Bay of Bengal and over the great islands of the Indian Archipelago.” 
Page 236-237, SCLATER & SCLATER (1899): “The Geography of Mammals.”

Lemuria Map

hypothetical sketch of the monophyletic origin and extension of the twelve races of Man from Lemuria over Earth.” From Haeckel, Natürliche Schöpfungsgeschichte, Plate XV. Note the differences in the German version (1868) without Lemuria and the English version (1876) with Lemuria, after 1870 Haeckel adopted and promoted the idea of a sunken continent in the Indian Ocean.

‘”In 1868 the German biologist Ernst Haeckel published his German edition of “Natürliche Schöpfungsgeschichte“(The history of Creation), addressed to a general public where he promoted his view of evolution of life and humans. Haeckel considered the earliest humans descending from Asian primates and placed the cradle of humanity in Asia or in alternative Africa and very cautiously on the hypothetical continent between these landmasses. Lemuria played a major role as possible migration route of humans into Africa and Indonesia (Natürliche Schöpfungsgeschichte, page 515).
In later editions and the English version of the book, translated by Ray Lankester in 1876, the supposed continent is even emphasised and labelled in the map as “Paradise” and displayed as cradle of humanity.

“The primeval home, or the “Centre of Creation”, of the Malays must be looked for in the south-eastern part of the Asiatic continent, or possibly in the more extensive continent which existed at the time when further India was directly connected with the Sunda Archipelago and eastern Lemuria.”
Page 329, HAECKEL (1876): “The history of Creation.””

Where The Atlantic and Indian Ocean Meet Video

In images, nature on July 18, 2012 at 18:07

Recently I read Frederick Forsyth’s Dogs of War where there was a passing reference to L’Agulhas, Cape of Good Hope.

I wanted to find out more.

Here it is.

Two Oceans, Atlantic and Indian meet

Atlantic and Indian Ocean Meet

From the coast of the Antarctic continent northwards, along the meridian of 20°E to Cape Agulhas (34°50’S – 20°00’E), the southern extremity of the Republic of South Africa, in Africa (the common limit with the South Atlantic Ocean).

So those who travel to Cape Point, or the Cape of Good Hope, in the hope of seeing the confluence of two oceans… you need to travel a little further south. And for those who still try to pursue the debate for commercial reasons, the Hydrographic Office of the South African Navy accepts the findings of the IHO regarding the common boundary of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans and that they apply these findings in full in their products.  The Department of Oceanography at the University of Cape Town also accepts and applies the 20°E dividing line.

The most common misunderstanding behind the controversy is the erroneous assumption that oceans and currents are synonymous.

The Agulhas Current brings warm water from the subtropics down the East Coast of South Africa.  From the region of East London, because of the widening of the continental shelf, the current flows further offshore and the coastal waters become cooler.  On the West Coast, the water is chilled by the north-drifting, cold Benguela Current.  When the wind blows the surface waters offshore, deep water, which is rich in nutrients, swells up to replace it.

The changes in temperature along the coast bring about changes in marine life.  One obvious example, which is there for all to see, is the prolific kelp (Ecklonia maxima) forests which prefer the colder, nutrient rich waters of the West Coast.  It is significant to note that the kelp grows all the way from the West Coast, past Cape Point in an easterly direction, only as far as Cape Agulhas.  It can therefore be safely assumed, and can be borne out by physical tests, that the water to the west of Cape Agulhas is predominantly colder than to the east.  This fact supports the argument that the dividing line between the warm and cold waters is more often at Cape Agulhas than anywhere else.

KFC ‘Get A Bucket of Chicken’ During Indonesia Earthquake.

In Business on April 13, 2012 at 22:12

How insensitive can one get in the pursuit of money!

 

Ad of KFC Thailand

KFC Ad.

While millions of people evacuated the coastline along the Indian Ocean following the 8.6 magnitude earthquake that shook northern Indonesia Wednesday, KFC Thailand insisted that they rush home and order a bucket of chicken.

Local authorities along the Indian Ocean rim braced for a disastrous tsunami, people fled for higher ground. According to the Associated Press, in an inopportune moment KFC posted on its Facebook page: “Let’s hurry home and follow the earthquake news. And don’t forget to order your favorite KFC menu.”

By the time tsunami warnings subsided, hundreds of people began lambasting the company on Thai web pages, prompting the immediate removal of the message. An apology replaced the post, asking for forgiveness for the error.

For many, Wednesday’s earthquakes served as a painful reminder of the devastating outcome of the Asian tsunami in 2004 that claimed 230,000 lives in the same region.

Why No Tsunami , Less Damage Now

The Earthquake in 2004 triggered Tsunami of great proportions which caused immense damage to property and people was a lighter one than the one that occurred on 11 April 2012.

Though it was feared initially that this will cause Tsunami of great proportions which made the ptwc issue Tsunami alert for as many as 28 countries,the alert was withdrawn.

Barring a small Tsunami in Thailand(see by blog on this), no major Tsunami has been reported nor very serious damage done to properties.

Why?

Location of the earthquake.

 

“The first temblor, a magnitude 8.6 quake, struck at 2:38 p.m. local time, along a segment of a fault on the sea floor some 269 miles southwest of the coastal city of Banda Aceh, capital of Aceh province. A second, 8.2 magnitude quake struck two hours later roughly 120 miles south of the first quake’s epicenter.

Both quakes occurred at relatively shallow depths – 14 miles and 10 miles – beneath the sea floor, according to data gathered by the US Geological Survey‘s National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo.

So far, the quakes appear to have done little damage and caused no fatalities, although people felt the shaking as far away as the east coast of India. In Banda Aceh, many residents streamed into the streets when the shaking began, according to press reports from the city.

Memories of the disastrous December 2004 earthquake and tsunami remain fresh. The event left 230,000 dead throughout the Indian Ocean basin as the tsunami in some locations reached heights of up to 90 feet.

Though both of Wednesday’s large quakes join the magnitude 9.1 event in 2004 event as “great” earthquakes – the strongest of six categories – the initial temblor Wednesday reportedly pushed only a 30-inch-high surge of water onto Indonesia‘s west coast.

In addition, the 2004 event released nearly six times as much energy as the first quake that struck on Wednesday and some 22 times more energy than the second.

The difference? Location, suggests Amy Vaughan, a geophysicist with the National Earthquake Information Center.

The 2004 rupture occurred along the northern reaches of a subduction zone that hugs the west coast of Indonesia and defines the arc of Indonesia’s islands.

The quake occurred in a section of the zone where a vast patch of crust known as the Indian plate is sliding beneath the much smaller Burma plate. Quakes along such subduction zones tend to generate the planet’s most violent temblors because the surface areas sliding past each other are large.

Researchers estimate that the patch of the subduction zone affected in the 2004 quake covered an area roughly the size of California. The amount of slip along the length of this patch was 50 feet.
