  1. Cracks in the Ataturk Dam after earthquakes

    ‘ The Atatürk Dam in southeast Turkey appears to be in critical condition after two devastating earthquakes of 7.5 and 7.8 on the Richter scale occurred relatively close to it.

    Reports are coming from Turkey saying that “there are many cracks in the dam after strong earthquakes.” The surrounding areas have already been evacuated.

    Experts warned that the dam could break at any moment, and the resulting devastation could affect an area of ​​30 square kilometers near the dam. …

    The Atatürk Dam is the main structure of the GAP South East Anatolia Project (Güneydou Anadolu Project), which aims to use the water resources of the Tigris and Euphrates springs.

    Currently, the GAP project consists of 13 dams, 7 of which control the waters of the Euphrates River, and 6 of which control the waters of the Tigris River. Another dam is expected to be completed, bringing the total number of dams to 14, up from 22 originally envisaged. The Atatürk Dam is part of the Euphrates Environment, forming the lake of the same name, the third largest in Turkey. The area of ​​the reservoir is 817 square kilometers, and the estimated volume of water is 48.7 cubic kilometers.

    The water level in the lake reached its maximum in 1994 at 546 m above sea level, but since then has fluctuated between 526 m above sea level and 537 m above sea level. The maximum allowable height for the safety of the dam is 546 m above sea level, and the minimum for the operation of the hydroelectric power plant is 526 m above sea level. ‘

    I wonder if the weight of water in these dams,
    in an area of known seismic activity, may have
    at least partially contributed to the devastation.

  4. Matthew Ehret: Will the Turkish Earthquake Unleash
    Science from the Shackles of the Statisticians?


    United States Geology Survey website:
    “Can we forecast earthquakes? No. Neither the United States Geology Survey (USGS) nor any other scientists have ever predicted a major earthquake. We do not know how, and we do not expect to know how any time in the foreseeable future.”

    ‘ On the morning of February 6, 2023 the people of Turkey and Syria were struck by a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake, followed by a 6.7 aftershock and then a final (we hope) 7.5 M quake in the late afternoon. The effects of the three-fold quake struck deep into Syria and as of this writing, over 20,000 deaths have been counted in Turkey and Syria, along with tens of thousands of injuries and incredible destruction to infrastructure.

    Were it not for the political obfuscation that has derailed all fields of science over the past decades, then this tragic loss of life would have been entirely preventable.


    Because despite the clamorings of the priests of standard model geology managing the US Geological Survey, the fact is that earthquakes are completely forecastable.

    Take the singular case of Dutch scientist Frank Hoogerbeets, representing the self-funded Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS) who published the following tweet a full three days prior to the February 6th disaster:
    “Sooner or later there will be a ~M 7.5 #earthquake in this region (South-Central Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon). #deprem”

    Reflecting on the method he and other like-minded scientists use within the international forecasting community, Hoogerbeets explained:

    “As I stated earlier…this would happen in this region, similar to the years 115 and 526. These earthquakes are always preceded by critical planetary geometry, as we had on the fourth-fifth of February”

    What sort of “planetary geometries” is Hoogerbeets talking about?

    It isn’t that Hoogerbeets uses a crystal ball, believes in astrology or has better data than the scientists of the US Geographical Survey, but rather that he is simply a real scientist who doesn’t believe in dogmatic procedures masquerading as “science” if they don’t actually work. His method of looking at “planetary geometries” as an important component to his success was laid out in a three minute introductory video:
    Earthquakes and Electro Magnetic Waves:

    It should also be noted that this was not Hoogerbeets’ first successful forecast.

    On February 2, 2023, the SSGEOS published that there was “potential for stronger seismic
    activity in or near the purple band (indicating the east side of South America) in 1-6 days.”
    This warning was followed by a February 5, 2023 5.6 magnitude earthquake that struck Cuiquimbo Chile.

    On January 29, 2023, SSGEOS predicted stronger seismic activity in an area which he outlined on a map as southern China and northern India.
    This was followed within a day by a 5.8 magnitude earthquake that hit southern Xinjiang.

    Since setting up the SSGEOS in 2014, Hoogerbeets and his team have made hundreds of successful forecasts which stand in loud contrast to their mainstream rivals whose commitment to statistical probability theory, and linear computer modeling have resulted in dismal failure consistently for decades.

    What sets Hoogerbeets apart from the statisticians who have come to dominate the field of seismology is simply his emphasis upon the electro-magnetic, chemical, and galactic properties of earth’s dynamics.

    Unlike the modern “seismologists” who assert that everyone must adhere to the absurd “elastic rebound theory”, which presupposes the sole cause of earthquakes is located within tectonic plates and gravitational forces, those scientists who make successful predictions in this contentious field choose instead to focus on the electromagnetic properties of the earth and broader solar system (and galaxy) shaping the earth’s environment.

    As Hoogerbeets states:

    “Based on our research, it appears that gravity is not responsible for larger earthquakes at the time of critical planetary and lunar geometry. The most likely force acting on Earth’s crust at the time of critical geometry is electromagnetic. This could also explain the lightning in Earth’s atmosphere prior to larger earthquakes which could be the result of atmospheric forcing induced by electrogmagnetic charge from critical geometry between celestial bodies in the solar system.”

    Throughout Hoogerbeets’ writings and educational videos, the Dutch forecaster explains that space between planets and between stars is not empty but permeated by subtle but efficient magnetic fields, and electric currents which feed into each of the planets, moons, and sun. The analogue used for this process is not a computer model with abstract notions of “gravitational forces pulling on objects within empty space” as is so often the case, but rather an electrical process with the sun acting as a form of dynamo and the planets acting as both antennas that simultaneously receive, transform, and emit signals according to certain specific wavelengths.

    Quoting RCA Radio Engineer John Nelson https://www.astrologic.ru/library/review/No6/CaseStudy.htm whose 1500 atmospheric condition forecasts in the 1960s were made with a 95.2% accuracy, Hoogerbeets wrote:

    “The similarity between an electrical generator with its carefully placed magnets and the sun with its ever-changing planets is intriguing. In the generator, the magnets are fixed and produce a constant electrical current. If we consider that the planets are magnets and the sun is the armature, we have a considerable similarity to the generator”

    This property of the planets and moons within the solar system was confirmed by the Voyager and Cassini satellites which recorded specific EM waves emitted from all planets ranging from radio wave, microwave, infrared, and even smaller wavelengths.

    It was also outlined beautifully by Safire project lead scientist Dr. Michael Clarage in his recent 16 minute video, “Function in the Cosmos”:

    Admittedly, what causes the EM emissions/absorption between planets is not understood. Also not fully understood is how these emissions influence activity both within the atmosphere, ionosphere of the earth — not to mention the deep crust, mantle, and core of the earth. Humans have, after all only pierced 16 km through the 60 km crust and have no direct knowledge of the mantle or lower.

    Despite our ignorance of so much, we do know some things about the magnetic fields and resonances within our solar system, and simply acknowledging this reality and its influence on the affairs of earth is itself the first step to making a discovery… which is more than can be said of the standard theory gatekeepers attempting to keep new discoveries from emerging.
    Core Precursors to a Science of Earthquake Forecasting

    One of the factors which appear to be playing a much larger role within the science of earthquakes involves the chemical secretions of elements like radon from ground water near earthquake epicenters days and hours before and after an event.

    What causes the release of radon is still unknown but this was what technician Gianpalo Giuliani was looking at when he predicted a 2009 earthquake that would strike l’Aqila Italy days later.

Here, when you’re agreeing with someone, wholeheartedly, as I was agreeing with you, you phrase things that way. It’s an idiom of sorts. I have never called anyone “silly” because I thought they were silly, because it would be name-calling. It’s derogatory and insulting which is not how I meant it.
