I have a cousin living there and it makes me nervous. I get worried about him.

San Andreas Fault is so dangerous and Cali is way overdue for an earthquake.

I am in NYC and we don’t get earthquakes here. I have been in an earthquake once in my life and this was in Azerbaijan. (google it)

Aren’t you guys afraid? How can you live in Cali?

For example, I want to get pictures of the earthquake in Haiti to use for fliers for a fundraiser. Should I get permission from the site owner first, or can I use pictures from Google images? Are there any websites that offer free images for anyone to use?

Google came up with three: Rictor, Richter, or Rector scale. Which is the one that is correct or most commonly spelled?

Religions are based upon belief systems of our ancestors who had no scientific understanding of natural phenomenon & thus attributed them to gods. But now , when we know , it is better to stick to science as it is based upon truths found by experimentation. see more below :

I will reproduce from the blog :

(1) MANKIND LIVED NEAR VOLCANOES IN AFRICA

It is known scientifically from genetic research that mankind (homosepians) originated from a very few (about 1000) people in AFRICA .

This means that our ancestors are from Africa. And we all belong to one race/species. Genetically we are all equal.

One of the oldest human fossils ( about 1 million year old) were found in northern Ethiopia near active volcanoes ( the fossil is named as Lucy). This place is called "Danakil depression". Here we have volcanoes in the shape of large lava pools. (See it in google earth).

Just imagine the life of man living near volcanoes. Volcanoes mean fire , earthquakes , thunder , rain , lightening & lava flow all happening simultaneously . The lava of volcanoes probably killed many primitive humans and animals living nearby. The primitive man with primitive thinking might have imagined the natural calamities as the wrath of spirits. It is possible that mankind started worshiping the fire god (actually volcanoes). And, in order to make them calm , he might have thought that the gods/spirits wanted killings of humans & animals. And he started sacrificing animals in fire as a ritual , as a pre-emptive measure, in order to please the fire god as a matter of reverse logic to keep the imaginary gods satisfied and not to create any further trouble.

(2) Religion WAS BORN IN Africa BUT MIGRATED TO ENTIRE WORLD AS FIRE WORSHIP

And it is estimated that mankind lived in Africa for about a million years and only in last 80000 years he has moved out of Africa and colonized the earth. So the rituals & traditions of primitive mankind were carried away with him too. From Africa, mankind spread to Egypt , Israel, Europe , Iran, India, Indonesia, fareast etc. We see many of these same rituals of pleasing gods in many religions such as old Egyptian religion, Judaism(of Israel), Parsi (Zoroastrianism) religion of Iran, old religion of Greeks and Hinduism of India.

Bibile (Old testament) says that the Jews used to worship in their temple with fire and many animals & birds used to be sacrificed to please their God (Yahweh).

more below :
The Parsis (Zoroastrians) have fire temple where they worship their God with Fire. The Parsi religion of Iran (Zoroastrianism) was subdued , probably they were converted to Islam later. In islam sacrifice of animals is continued even today (on bakrid) to please their God (Allah).

In old Hinduism (vedic times prior to Buddha) , all the rituals were centered around fire worship called Yagna. In the process of Yagna an alter was built in which wood , incense etc were burnt in clarified butter, chanting of mantras from Vedas was done , every chanting was specific for the purpose for which the yagna was meant for. An intoxicant was also drunk , prepared from ephedra & marijuana , it was called soma. The soma drink is mentioned extensively in Vedas, the earliest scriptures of hindus. In the process of yagna , sacrifice of animals was also done and the meat was used for feasting in olden times.
Please see the blog as it has photographs of the volcanoes near the million year old human fossil found .
Nuge – I appreciate your thoughts . All I am trying to say that (1) human being originated in Africa near volcanoes (2) They had some rituals (fire worship) (3) They migrated to the entire world & their style of worship became the foundation of most old religions.

I am only trying to trace the ORIGIN of Religion & its relevance today.

my home town, is 100 Km away from the center of the earthquake. so many dead, over12000 bodies, still counting, and there are still over 30000 are buried under the ruins. if we can’t get them out within 72 hours, the chance of their survival is very slim. I feel so sad… and angry!! look at those pictures! they are still child!! (picasaweb.google.com/Everselect/ChinaEarthquake)
