I'm "supposing," since our friendly little "visitor" Toutatis has left us, things should begin calming down
a bit, and return to fairly "normal seismic activites?"
In the few ensuing months before this little mountain sized peanut asteroid swung close to the earth,
earthquakes all over the Earth began to mount on a daily basis, and volcanos world wide slowly began
erupting, more and more each passing day until finally this "close encounter" with Toutatis, the "cherry"
on the cake. Seems all the major volcanos worldwide have since become active all at about the same
time with a major run of earthquakes as well.
Now that Toutatis has returned back along his merry little speedway, I would hope Earth's molten-mantle
will subside and settle down somewhat until his next "coming" visit in 2008. We'll get another visit in 2012
as well, and every four years thereafter. Maybe we should not live too close to major volcanoes or known
They say this was Toutatis' closest visit??

As the world awaits the passing-or crashing-of planetoid Toutatls
Toutatis Coming September 29..
"Toutatis is officially listed as a Potentially Hazardous Asteroid (PHA). If
an asteroid like Toutatis were to impact the earth, the resultant explosion
will be equivalent to that of one million megatons of Tri-Nitro-Toluene (TNT),
which is a well known powerful explosive agent," says Manjo Pai, General
Secretary of Confederation of Indian Amateur Astronomers .
The asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, and left a
180-kilometre wide crater in Mexico, was about eight times as big.
"So if Toutatis were to hit it might not actually wipe out all life on Earth,
but it would probably destroy several continents. It would be extremely
catastrophic," he said. from http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2004/09/24/1095961861901.html?oneclick=true

Subject: [Ancient-Mysteries] lets move on - there are many other mysteries to discuss
... mt st helen is active again. this is very worrisome, not just to those between portland and seattle, because it may signal plate movement that involves all of california as well. its a difficult thing for those who live on the west coast to relocate to another state inland. they have homes, jobs, family in the area, and love the sunsets, climate, and laid-back way of life. they hate to hear our warnings of doom. if they wait it may all be gone in a few hours, or so threatened, that nobody would pay a cent for a mansion in malibu - i wouldnt now. it would be just as hard to get the dutch to leave the lowlands...
