March 19 Supermoon : Wake up and smell the variables

The is a scientist cat fight going on right now. Astrologer Richard Nolle, who coined the terms “Supermoon”, claims that on March 19th, the Earth should be on alert. He claims that we are in greater danger of seismic activity, volcanic activity and other natural phenomenon.

Supermoon means that the moon, which does NOT travel in a perfect circle around the earth, will be in the 90th percentile of closeness to the earth. On March 19th, it will be the closest. Less than 357,000 miles. You can read more about the Supermoon on Mr. Nolle’ website Astropro.

The scientific community begs to differ. They say that his claim of 72.7% of all major events happen during the Supermoon window is baseless and incorrect. They say that their studies do not show a correlation. They have measured the difference in force and claim that it is too small to effect the earth in any significant way. They also site the fact that the difference in distance between the moon and earth is only a 1/4000th of a change.

All I have to say to these scientists’ rebuttal of Mr.Nolle’s claim is “Wake up and smell the variables”

One of the classic mistakes of science is to measure stress in a linear fashion. To take a force and simply consider that force as a “one time event” or constant force without accumulative effect.

Two of the best examples of this are water droplets on a rock and a bridge called Galloping Gertie.

A drop of water is an extremely small force. Given time however, constant drops of water are the force that have carved our planet into the form it is in today. Most of our national parks have some type of erosion history that has created something of beauty.

The bridge nicknamed Galloping Gertie was the Tacoma Narrows bridge in Washington State. This bridge was a steele suspension bridge that was taken down by a constant wind of 50 miles per hour. What happened was that the extremely small and insignificant force reached a harmonic perfection that started a cavitation in the bridge. The cavitation increased as time went on because the force remained in place. Eventually the cavitation increased until the bridge collapsed. You can watch the video of this 1940 bridge collapse. You can also read about the event on the Washington State Department of Transportation website.

The key about both of these scenarios is that the force, when analyzed linearly seems insignificant against the mass and strength of the object being effected. That is why this type of statement is invalid. Amazingly, in their condemnation of the Supermoon Theory on seismic activity, the scientists playfully note that they have measured seismic activity on the moon when Supermoon event happens! DUH! Cavitation from the force on the smaller object is measurable but cavitation on the larger object is not so you assume it is not happening? That is bad science.

The moon is in constant orbit. The force on the earth, although slight is constantly changing and changing with a harmonic type of repetition. The force is definitely enough to cause all types of increasing forces within the earth itself. These forces would be unmeasurable until they show some type of physical manifestation. JUST LIKE THE GALLOPING GERDIE BRIDGE.

The tides are known to be their highest during these times. Now while we measure the height of the water on the shorelines, very little research is done to to calculate the increase of mass over subduction zones and other stress points of the earth’s crust. Again this is a cyclical event that could have a frequency that could trigger an earthquake. While the mass of water seems insignificantly small compared to the mass of the earth’s crust, the effect over time could definitely trigger an event at a stress point.

I personally think that the Supermoon theory on seismic activity could DEFINITELY have some truth. In cases where we are unable to measure the real time stress considering the harmonic effect over time, we have to rely solely on statistical analysis of our history. Mr. Nolle’s findings of 72.7% are significant enough to warrant further study. After all, this is not the last Supermoon we will experience. Even the 100% Supermoon that we are experiencing now happened only 18 years ago.
