Another Aftershock in Haiti – 6.2

Haiti has been hit again by another earthquake aftershock measured 6.1 on the Richter scale and was centered about 59 km north-east of Port-au-Prince.  Although there was no threat of tsunami as it was far enough inland, the traumatized people of Haiti again was distress.

The aftershock was felt on around 6:00pm ET.  It again caused panic and disturbance.   As per report,  people fled on their buildings with fear that it could collapse as well.  So far no major damages was reported.

According the US Geological Survey said that the aftershock that just happened are less destructive than the major earthquake that struck a week ago.  The USGS says there are roughly 132 earthquakes a year with a magnitude between 6 and 6.9 and just 17 between 7 and 7.9 and one, on average, of 8.0 or greater. On Monday, a 6.0 quake shook Guatemala. While a 6.1 magnitude earthquake sounds almost as strong as a 7.0 earthquake, the difference of the destructive power between the two is greater than an order of magnitude.

Deal with the Devil

People are not happy with Pat Robertson’s latest pronoucement as seen on their comments over youtube.  Not a single person commented positively.  

But what exactly did he mean? 

Allow me to analyze the context of Pat’s message and its relevance to current situation.  First, let me clarify the “pact of the devil” thing.   This has not represented in the Bible nor in any Christian teachings.  Patt Robertson only utter his know how on Haiti’s historical accounts during its liberation from French colonialization (I just do not know if he got it from historical books or from an urban legend).  In America, they say it’s freedom of expression and it is Pat’s views in a different perspective.  It’s just that viewers and readers are also free to comment.  I say, it’s up to us to investigate.  It won’t hurt us if we read to know the truth.  If I may suggesst, hope National Geographic would made an investigative feature presentation on this subject as what they did to phyramids and other historical mysteries.  Hope I won’t get violent reaction on this suggestion.

Negative comments were obviosly because of the timing of Pat’s pronouncement.  I guess, people were still overwhelmed by their sympathy to what had happened to Haiti.   They may think that such comments is uncalled for, as many these days are more concerned on how to help.  Nonetheless, viewers may not noticed the context on Pat’s message as he was actually discussing the rebuilding possibilitiy.   It was not noticed  whom Pat was  interviewing…  he was interviewing the man from “Operation Blessing.”  OB is a department of 700 Club where Pat is its founder.  It is a relief giving arm of the 700 Club all over the world, especially during times of calamity and distress.  In the Philippines, Operation Blessing’s presence and sincerity are always available when people are in need of their support.  

Personal View:

This blog recorgnized the efforts and sacrifices of of the NGO and groups/org and their volunteers, especially during such time as this. 

Historically, true Christians (not the twisted ones) were the pioneers to relief giving and founder of most known NGO since time in memorial.  True Christian were seen in the forefront of service even in the middle of war.  They are the unrecognized salt and light to this world we live in.  Their efforts are unparalleled.   They are the initiator relief giving, rescue and medical mission, counter oppression, inhuman political practices, liberators of persecuted minorities (like the african american), founder of progressive education, inventions and anti war policies.  I guess I am also entitled to my freedom of expression. 🙂

FYI. Red Cross and other known NGO was founded by Christians.
