Man in his intelligence reach to the top of the planet, but he has given a second to face the truth that he is not the sole master of the universe and that there is a power above him whom we name GOD.... Praying for the victims of earthquake.

A sequence of the acts of God that have claimed more lives than any other event in human history.

Throughout history there have been thousands of natural disasters. However, some have been even more destructive than any others.

  1. Aleppo Earthquake

    Took place in 1130 ad in northern Syria. Has been labelled as the fourth worst Earthquake of all time, causing the deaths of over 230,000 people, mainly due to the destruction of a number of citadels housing large populations. The town of Aleppo was totally levelled in the Earthquake, though casualties were reduced because the townspeople fled at the first-shocks came.

  2. The Banqiao Dam

    In 1975 over a year's worth of rainfall fell in 24 hours. The dam, in south-eastern China, collapsed, having been designed for less than half that. The ensuing flood of water, gushed down into the lowlands as a wave 10km long and 7 metres high. Over 230,000 people died due to the collapse, but over 11 million were affected.

  3. The Tangshan Earthquake

    The third deadliest Earthquake of all time, this happened in 1976 in North-eastern China. The Earthquake struck early in the morning registering 7.8 on the Richter scale. Casualty figures were originally quoted as more than 600,000, but recent evidence suggests that it may have been less than 250,000.

  4. The Antioch Earthquake

    Very little evidence survives this quake, but records suggest that upwards of 260,000 people died. Location: Antakya (Antioch), Turkey.

  5. Indian Ocean Tsunami

    Most of us will remember this. On Boxing Day 2004 a large Earthquake beneath the Indian Ocean triggered a series of devastating Tsunamis. The Earthquake itself registered 9.3 on the Richter scale, and is the second largest ever recorded on a seismograph. The Tsunamis claimed 283,000 lives, and the world responded massively, donating more than $7 billion.

  6. India Cyclone

    In 1839 a large cyclone ripped through Coringa, killing 300,000 people.

  7. Bhola Cyclone

    In what is now Bangladesh, in 1970 a cyclone tore through the country. West Bengal was struck, adding to the damage and the casualties. Winds reached a peak of 185kph and an offshore island had 45% of its population killed by the winds. 500,000 people died.

  8. Shaanxi Earthquake

    The deadliest Earthquake of all time took place in 1556, in the Shaanxi province, China. The devastation wrought by the Earthquake would now compare only to the detonation of a nuclear bomb. The tremors were so powerful new valleys were opened and cracks appeared in the ground. Upwards of 830,000 died, more than a quarter of who died in caves, as landslides trapped them.

  9. Yellow River Flood

    The yellow river in China is known to regularly flood. However, in 1887 a particularly bad flood due to a high riverbed broke through dykes and killed more than a million people.

  10. China Flood

    A drought had continued in China for 2 years, until in 1931 most major rivers flooded. The waters rose so rapidly no one had much time to reach higher ground. Overall, the series of floods killed between 2 and 4 million people however, over 100 million were affected

When a car meets an accident, we don' say that cars shud be banned ...

When a plane crashes, air travel isn't stopped ...

When a train crashes, rail travel isn't  abandoned ...

What happened in Japan is a very unfortunate accident that shows lack of preparedness and room for improvement; but in no way does it mean that nuclear tech shud be entirely abandoned; it only means that we need to fine tune it and make it safer. Lets not forget that with declining fossil fuel reserves, nuclear energy is the only reliable and efficient source of energy. 

Also technology is not invented to prove anything or to discount/disregard the existence of God but to tame the environment in an effort to make our lives more convenient. If all tech is done away with man wud be relegated to the life of hunter-gatherer  - don't know abt u but this idea doesn't sound very appealing to me.

Lastly, I don't udnerstand how this accident relates to God ? Do u mean to say that God caused the tsunami just to remind men of his presence and power ??

Yes it is as Natural Disaster and described as  an unforseen "Act of God"  in insurance documents and agreements.
We just have to pick ourselves up and move on.
Nuclear Engergy is here to stay until another source can be discovered.
 
God does not cause a Tsumani or anything thing terrible.
