Quote# 83091

Next time you see an earthquake, watch how the crucifix on the wall does not shake. The reason is because the devil will not touch it.

This has been documented. Scientists can not explain it. Everything else will shake except the crucifix on the wall.

Huh?
My Parents had a crucifix on the wall when we lived in Montreal.
It shook right off the wall in the earthquake of 1968, and feel down and broke.

@ D Laurier

That's because God caused that earthquake, not the Devil. If God causes the earthquake, pentagrams don't shake. I mean, it's only logical...

Have you ever actually SEEN an earthquake? The results of the earth quaking, yes, but SEEN an earthquake?

P.S. Living in California, I can tell you that when the earth quakes, all the stuff in contact with the earth, directly or indirectly, quakes.

Wow!
How wrong can this idiot be? Entire churches filled with crucifixes have been leveled in earthquakes.
What is he on?

Move to California sometime. Keep a bunch of crucifixes. When the next earthquake hits, please do report back.

Are you honestly that fucking stupid?

The reason is because the devil will not touch it

What's your scriptural justification for the devil causing earthquakes, or that said devil can't touch a crucifix?

This has been documented. Scientists can not explain it.

No, it hasn't. It's about as much a scientific fact as geocentrism and flat earth theories. It's not the job of science to explain your idiotic claims.

Everything else will shake except the crucifix on the wall.

What about the wall the crucifix is on? Does that wall shake? Because if the wall shake then so does the crucifix. If it doesn't shake, and this is a "documented fact" then why doesn't every single buillding in every single earthquake prone area have their walls decorated with crucifixes?

Erm, no, the Koran will not fall off the shelf because the devil will not touch it, but Allahs earthquakes will prove he is stronger that indiel religions and their crosses.

Also spaghetti does not fall off the plate during an earthquke.

If your nonsense is true we could have earthquake-proof cities by builing entire buildings out of crosses.

It is also a miracle that with all of the videos we haev of earthquakes that not once have we been able to catch the non-shaking crucifix. This too is proof of god!

Now a serious question. Does the cross not move relative to the earth or the wall, which is presumably shaking. I can't quite picture in my mind what you mean. I wish you had some video so it would be clearer.

Even if we humor you and agree that that the devil does cause earthquakes this still makes no sense. Earthquakes are caused by the movement of the ground which means the devil wouldn't have to touch the crucifix. And if Jesus is keeping it afloat (somehow), then why isn't he doing something more important like, oh, I don't know, HELPING THE CHRISTIANS INSIDE.

Ah, that explains why Hurricane Katrina destroyed those Baptist churches - they had plain old crosses without the Jesus figure on them. Of course it doesn't explain why the Catholic churches in Lisbon, which undoubtedly had crucifixes in them, were destroyed, crucifix and all, by the earthquake of 1755 ...

I thought God caused earthquakes to punish bad people. But it turns out the devil does it and God does nothing to prevent him. What a nice chap.

So, earthquakes are caused by the devil? How is life going back there in the 11th century?

A pic from the Christchurch, NZ earthquake



You're telling me no crucifix moved?

(I suppose it could have been an ultra-protestant church that didn't have any crucifixes, but there must be a few crosses and bibles at least buried under that rubble).

What'd I Do

Well. Guess I'll be living in a house made of crucifixes, then.

From USA Today, October 13, 1992:
"A passer-by inspects a hole created when a cross *fell* from atop a Christian church in Cairo and smashed through the floor below. Monday's *earthquake* killed at least 340."
