The Alaskan Earthquake claim this morning by USGS is facing serious doubt by Earthquake Deniers ...

“You can’t believe numbers provided by the so-called Richter scale. These numbers are provided by a government agency that’s not in the constitution.The Richter scale is unconstitutional and earthquakes don’t exist.”


Last year the group, Earthquake Deniers held a symposium where it was proved that the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake was a Hoax:

"If an earthquake of that size really did strike downtown San Francisco, then where is all the rubble?" read one pamphlet, entitled "AfterShocks: Truth, Lies, And The Business Of Earthquakes," "Where are these alleged 3,000 dead? And why does the mayor refuse to answer questions about the fires that mysteriously started moments after the supposed 'earthquake' occurred? Ask yourself: Who is he protecting?"

Self-acknowledged 1906 Earthquake Denier and radical seismologist Dr. William Pletcher rebuffed angered historians by stating that the goal of the conference was neither to prove nor deny the earthquake of 1906. Rather, said Pletcher, it was held to "facilitate an appropriate atmosphere in which the hidden and unhidden angles of the most important geological issue of the 20th century could become more transparent."
