Crises and Changes in the Earth Lead Us to a “New Geological Age”

One of the most powerful earthquakes in modern times, with a magnitude of 7.8, hit on February 6, 2023 the city of Kahraman Maraş and extended towards the southern states of Turkey, cities of northern Syria and most of its provinces. The quake killed more than 42,000 people and injured more than 170,000, with major damage to the towns and villages it hit. It is the strongest of its kind since 1999. Turkey is located in an active earthquake zone within the Alpine Belt, an area of more than 15,000 kilometers, starting from Java, Sumatra and India through the Himalayas, then the mountains of Iran, the Caucasus and Anatolia to the Mediterranean Sea. Seventeen percent of the world’s largest earthquakes occur in this belt, which is a major catastrophic crisis for the world, leading to major changes to the Earth and ushering in a new geological age. Some geologists believe that the planet has gone through another period of transition in the scale of geological time began seventy years ago, and that we have entered a new geological era, called the Anthropocene or “human age”, in reference to the increasing impact of human activities on ecosystems and weather on the planet Fractures are fractures that occur in the rocks of the earth’s crust that lead to slides that scramble the rock slabs along the fault lines, increasing pressure, sliding one of the rock slabs, and the release of tremendous energy in the form of an earthquake. The earthquake was not surprising to geologists, as they issued several warnings of possible earthquakes that they expected to be devastating, but the warnings targeted the city of Istanbul for its population density. Some predictions also emerged a few days before the earthquake, warning of its occurrence in the area of Kahramanmaraş. In Syria, the earthquake hit the northern region of Syria and the provinces of Aleppo, Idlib, Hama, Latakia and Tartus, and some earthquakes reached the capital Damascus and a number of other provinces, and the effects of the earthquake reached Lebanon, Palestine and Iraq. We appeal here to governments and the Committee of Geological Organizations to increase media awareness about earthquakes and their consequences and this great event and take the necessary precautions and fast earthquakes come only suddenly, here we are ready! We ask the Almighty God to protect all mankind and protect you from all affliction.
