Say WHAT!??!

OBviously the deity was offended. Mightily.

After all, he/she/it went to the trouble of arranging the
earthquakes as punishment for things he/she/it knew you
were going to say...

It would be interesting devising the experiment to determine
whether the temblor was started by a deity that is offended
more by what believers say, or by what non-believers say.

Or, he/she/it was bowling, and wasn't even aware of any
upstairs neighbors. Yeah. That's it. Bowling. Big balls.

That's what you get for putting Alaska over a bowling alley.

7.9? Ouch.
