The experts are saying that the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti and the 8.8 quake in Chile are not related, since faults are not connected.
Call me backwater, but I wonder if they are connected in a deeper way. The ancients interpreted the shaking of the earth’s foundations as ominous signs of untold spiritual activity. What makes us imagine that our cosmovision is more accurate than others?
The main point is not a spiritual or scientific making of myths but a curiosity if the earth is not simply angry. These crises must push us to asking radical questions so that we can either learn to cope with an angry earth that just extinguished life in massive proportions or make appropriate changes to the load on which we burden the earth.
