Rising Events of Cyclones and Earthquakes

Rising events of cyclones and earthquakes, pointer to doomsday of 2012?

Many people argue that more cyclones and earthquakes are coming for last few years. The statistics do not favor these thoughts.  For example take Japan’s history of earthquakes, more or less the number remains same. These natural events have been part of the history and are random in occurrence.  There is no clear path which could lead us to predict the next such event with perfection. The pseudo-science of astrology and other such streams does not do justice to the bright people trying to make sense of vibrations of earth. Many spectacular scientists are spending their lifetimes in labs trying to gather data from the sensors which are placed all over the world. The seismic events are beyond the science to understand. We do not have technology to make better sense of the happenings which are taking place in deep earth. Where the scientists fail, the doomsday experts arrive and begin to make nonsense predictions.

What is happening these days is, Everyone has a theory.  Experts are little arrogant creatures who do not allow them to exposed to counter questions. After occurrence of  earthquake or cyclone, you will read news about the people who begin to claim that I predicted so and so will happen. If they are so smart people, they must enlighten us about the next possible dates.

Cyclones can be seen in advance and lives can be saved. But their number of events are so random that you can not make them appear in mathematical equations.  A statistical data can well present the picture if the events are rising or falling.  There is no pointer which could tell us it is all happening due to 2012 or something like that.  The speculative nature of the predictions and the way they are handed over to the people, looks like the bad attempt at marketing a book.  Anyone who is looking for intelligent thoughts on earthquakes and earthly events, must read the work of Robert Hooke.  He was a fantastic expert who made better sense of earthquakes and volcanoes.  He wrote in a very understandable manner and his style is local. He makes you understand the topics easily. Better than the choppy doomsday experts who are bent on linking everything to doomsday.
