Apologies for slightly deviating from the question asked but I was having this discussion with a friend and she mentioned how she found it strange that as we move closer to 2012, there seem to be an increase in such events e.g. tsunamis, floods, hurricanes and not just natural disasters but things like dead birds falling from the sky, LOTS of dead fish being washed up etc. 

Or maybe I'm just thinking too much about it? :\

Hmm.. its true that both - frequency & intensity - of hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunami has been increasing but I dont think its related to the doomsday prediction for 21 Dec. 2012. In fact the Mayan calendar, to which the prophecy is mainly attributed, doesn't even mention abt the end of the world. All it says is that the great cycle of the calendar wud end on this particular date and a new one shall begin. 

Perhaps these phenomenon are part of natural change or maybe an indication of the hostile or less fav. climate that shall be prevalent on the earth in the coming future.

OH! That explains the more frequent occurrence of tsunamis in the last decade ... must be due to the fact that more girls are wearing bikinis!

Actually, this is just another example of our mind playing games! With all the crazy talks of 2012 being just around the corner, people are bound to be looking for signs of the apocalypse. While its true that the number of natural disasters have been rising each year (from 78 in 1940 to 348 in 2004), its not necessarily true that more natural disasters are occurring on a yearly basis.

What's really happening is that more natural disasters are being reported for a number of reasons - number one being the advent of the modern communication and media. A hundred years ago, it would have taken us weeks to hear about this terrible natural disaster in Japan, but nowadays we hear about such events within minutes of their occurrence. And not only do we hear of them, but technology allows us to witness these events through videos and pictures that display these events as if we were there.

However, yes, you can argue that hurricanes and other natural disasters, etc. are causing more damage and more devastation in today's day and age. And that's possibly because there are more people living in coastal areas today and the world population has grown much more. With the advancement of cities, there is also more damage that is occurring because of natural disasters.

With tornadoes and earthquakes, before, when one of these occurred in the wild where there were no people, they weren't detected and therefore went unreported. But there is a higher availability of technology that exists today and it is easier to monitor seismic activity, so more natural disasters are reported.

Its all a matter of perception, really.

Its true that much of the apparent rise in disasters is explained by better monitoring and recording tech but phen. like hurricanes, earthquakes, floods have been recorded for over a century, so enuf data is available and even after normalization, rising trends can be observed for hurricanes (freq of strong storms) [1] (incidence of quakes is the same [2].)

So the climate change is definitely happening - ofcourse this ain't related to any prophecy but the risk is for real.

Yes Global warming could cause problems and the so called shifting of the Poles.
Looks like the North Pole is shifting.
With such a quake shifting the earth's axis more problems could follow later.
I recommend more prayers.

Most prophesies do get fulfilled unfortunately.
It may not be 2012 but later.
Wish the Tsunami had hit the Somali pirates.
 
 
As for country Karma the world has not forgotten the Rape of Nanking by Japan during the second world war.
I hate to dig up the past but trying to see if events are connected in some way.

I always ponder when there are mass deaths as to the reasons for it. May the departed souls rest in peace.
Many are still unaccounted for.
The Nuclear Threat is most scary now.

Karma or Natural Disaster?

This reminds of the Iranian cleric who said that girls wearing short skirts are the reason for earthquakes 


I think short skirts do encourage more stares and more sexual crimes in some countries.
The Iranian cleric could be right in that quakes are to punish the criminalsLOL
 
The tsunami should have hit Somali Pirates who currently are holding 700 Hostages.
