Why do Earthquakes Occur?
Do we actually have a clue why Nepal’s and other devastating earthquakes did happen?
Ahem… what about tectonic plates?
Here are modern 21 century answers by remarkable representatives of the most important organized cults of our rational world.
Finally we get informed! Pick your favourite!
1. Hindu explanation: „Earthquake was a punishment for eating beef!“
2. Muslim explanation: „Loose women cause earthquakes!“
3. Buddhist explanation: „A bodhisattva came out of his mother’s womb!“
4. Christian explanation: „Praying to the wrong gods and idols causes earthquakes.“
5. Jewish explanation: „Recognising gay rights in the Holy Land causes earthquakes.“
6. Shinto explanation: „The Jews did it!“
7. Thai royalist explanation: „Thaksin Chinnawat and Tropico 5 players caused all eruptions!“ – Or was it „corruption“? ;-))
I apologize for not knowing exactly if Richard Koshimizu was indeed a Shintoist Jew hater. There is a 20 % chance that he might actually be a Buddhist, a Christian or even an Atheist Jew hater.
Anyway it is sure that he must be an idiot, a holocaust denier and a 9 11 truther.
Apart from all the above, this article is bloody serious.
