I Think This Qualifies as "Earthquakes in Diverse Places"

This poster on YouTube is making videos of recent earthquake activity, and this is today's video for March 9th, 2011. He's using a free program called "Earthquake 3D" that is downloadable off the Internet and powered by the USGS. This program allows you to turn up and down the Richter Scale, depending on what size quake you want to see, and it shows you up to the past 7 days of activity.

The sheer amount of earthquakes, *large* earthquakes, is unreal. True, they happen every day. But not. Like. This.

Matthew 24: 4-8:
"4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains."

As one who's given birth five times, I think I'm qualified to tell you that birth pains start as short and annoying twinges, building in intensity until they are hard, swift, and one right after another, taking your breath away. If this *ISN'T* the birth pangs Christ spoke about getting worse, then how bad do the "pangs" have to get before they capture our attention?
