Shocking Documentary (must watch): Buried– Earth Quake, From 1976 Tangshan to 2008 Sichuan Wenchuan in China (video)

Posted by Author on May 16, 2010


Buried, a Documentary (With English and Chinese caption) produced by Wang Libo, won the prize in Chinese Documentary Exchange Week in 2009.

Director’s Statement: The 1976 Tangshan Earthquake left a lot of open questions. Before the earthquake, seismological personnel in Tangshan and quake experts in Beijing had already warned of an imminent quake. But in the end, more than 240,000 people had to pay with their lives, causing a shocking tragedy of massive proportions. Why did this happen? In the 2008 Wenchuan Earthquake about 100,000 people were killed. Faced with terrible quakes, the human race repeats tragedy time and time again. It is terrible that people can only offer money and bland tears after the disaster – when better preparation could have saved lives. A nation has to courageously face its own weakness to remain hopeful.

The film has been cut into 11 videos and posted on Youtube which you can find from following link:

China Seismologist’s Prediction of Earthquake Ignored, Says Scientist

Posted by Author on May 15, 2008


By Xinfei, Epoch Times staff, May 14, 2008-Geng Qingguo, Wang Chengmin, and Li Shihui

The same night of Sichuan’s May 12 earthquake, Chinese scientist Li Shihui revealed on his blog that Chinese seismologist Geng Qingguo accurately predicted the quake and warned authorities about the disaster in late April. According to Li, Geng’s report was ignored by Chinese authorities.

Mr. Li, a visiting fellow scientist at the Key Laboratory of Geo-mechanical Engineering at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said in the article that Geng first raised the issue as early as 2006, warning that a major quake will occur in Aba area of Sichuan Province where the 5.12 quake happened.

(Photo: [L-R] Geng Qingguo, Wang Chengmin, and Li Shihui. Picture taken at the “From Haicheng Earthquake to Qinglong Wonder Forum” , The 20th Academic Conference on Heaven, Earth and Man. Photo from Li Shihui’s blog)

According to Li, on April 26 and 27, the Committee of Natural Disaster Prediction, an organization under China Geophysical Institute, discussed Geng’s findings and further predicted that a quake measuring 6 to 7 will occur between May 2008 and April 2009 in the area south to Lanzhou City where Sichuan, Gansu and Qinghai provinces meet. The committee’s report was turned into China Seismology Bureau as a confidential document on April 30.

In addition, Geng Qingguo clearly pointed out that in Aba region a quake of 7 or higher magnitude is most likely to occur in 10 days before and after May 8, 2008. His prediction has been proved accurate in every aspect: magnitude, location, and time. But his report received no respond from the authorities.

“On hearing about Wenchuan’s 7.8-manitude earthquake, Chinese seismologist Geng Qingguo was struck with a tearless grief,” said Li in his blog. “His heart was bleeding.”

Geng Qingguo is a researcher for China Seismology Bureau and the Vice-Chair Examiner of The Committee for Natural Disaster Prediction at the China Geophysical Institute. According to Li Shihui, Geng developed the method of predicting major earthquakes with drought occurrence in 1972. With this method, Geng successfully predicted the 1975 earthquake in Haicheng City and the Tangshan quake in 1976 which killed at least 240,000 people. In the 1980s Geng published his theories in his book The Relationship Between Drought and Earthquake in China (published by Science Press).

“However,” Li said, “his scientific achievements offended authorities in the seismology field, and Geng was removed from the prediction team and transferred to a seismology newspaper.”

Li’s article has quickly drawn extensive attention. Many bloggers responded, condemning the Chinese authorities for ignoring the expert’s warning.

“I don’t understand why the authorities do not pay attention to the seismologists and let innocent people suffer!” said an angry blogger.

Another said, “If people were warned about it earlier, the quake would not have caused so many deaths.”

One blogger said, “I am one of the survivors of the Tangshan Quake. Tangshan people are extremely hostile toward the National Seismology Bureau. Because of their failure to predict such a devastating quake, over 240,000 people lost their lives. Now 32 years later, they again failed to predict the Sichuan quake. Why should we tax-payers spend money on you high officials in the National Seismology Bureau? The head of the National Seismology Bureau should resign from his position.”

Prophecy On Stones Realized In China History And The Collapsing of CCP

Posted by Author on September 9, 2007


A Special Report by The Epoch Times-

Many people have heard of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty who united China. Perhaps many don’t know that the demise of the Qin Dynasty was predicted by writings on a meteorite.

In Year 12 of the Qin Emperor’s rule, a meteorite fell from the sky. On the meteorite, there were seven characters that read, “Qin Emperor dies and the land is divided.” The next year, the emperor died. One year later, the rebellion by Chen Sheng and Wu Guang began, and the old royalties of the six states that Qin had conquered divided up China to reestablish their states. Three years after Emperor Qin died, the Qin Dynasty ended. The prophecy was realized.

In the late Yuan Dynasty, a folk rhyme said, “A stone man with one eye can turn the Yellow River and the world will revolt.” Later, the prime minister was leading a project to manage the flow of the Yellow River when a stone man with just one eye was found. The rhyme was carved on the back of the stone man. Very shortly, many peasant revolts broke out, and the Yuan Dynasty ended.

The two above examples were recorded in “Records of the Historian” and “Yuan History.”

They remind us of the prophecy that recently appeared on a huge rock in China: “The Chinese Communist Party collapses.”

This rock was found in a National Park in Zhangbu, Pingtang County, Guizhou Province in 2002. A crack that formed 500 years ago in the 270-million year old megalith reveals six characters in the manner of neatly brush-written Chinese; the characters say “The Chinese Communist Party Collapses” [Zhong Guo Gong Chan Dang Wang].

The Will of Heaven270-million year old megalith

The appearance of the megalith shows that the fate of the Chinese nation is closely related to the will of heaven at an historic moment in time.

(Photo of the rock printed on the ticket to the national park. The six characters read, “Chinese Communist Party Collapses.” /The Epoch Times)

The two sections of the stone are each seven meters in length, nearly three meters tall and weigh 100 tons. The stone is extremely hard— in fact, too hard to carve on. The characters are each about one foot across. The characters were written in a square style and were very clear. They are slightly raised in relief. The last character, “Collapses,” was bigger than the other characters, showing that the demise of the Chinese Communist Party is not just the collapse of an ordinary political party.

This supernormal site has been reported by over 100 newspapers, TV stations, and websites in China, although nobody has dared to mention the last character, “Collapses.” They only dare say that the stone bears the characters for “Chinese Communist Party.”

Although the photo of the stone was on the ticket to the national park in which the stone was found, visitors to the site are directed to not talk about it. Sources say that many high-ranking CCP officials have visited the site in person. They were shocked inside and understood what it meant. Like Emperor Qin Shi Huang, they are only trying to postpone the collapse of their power…… ( more details from the Epochtimes’ report: Withdrawals Accelerate the CCP’s Disintegration)

To date of today, 25,847,721 Chinese people have announced quit the Chinese Communist Party by posting their statements on the Quit CCP Website (in Chinese) ]

Video: Geology Wonder- 270 Million-Year-Old Stone Says “Chinese Communist Party Collapses”

Posted by Author on September 9, 2007


The Epoch Times-270 million-year-old “hidden words stone”

In June 2002, a 270 million-year-old “hidden words stone” was discovered in Guizhou (province, in southwest China).

A crack that formed 500 years ago in a megalith reveals six characters neatly brush-written in Chinese; the characters represent “The Chinese Communist Party Collapses [Zhong Guo Gong Chan Dang Wang].” The character “collapse” (亡) is especially large.

The official media in Mainland China have all reported this news, but they have hidden the word “collapse” and only mention the written words “The Chinese Communist Party”. However, the word “collapse” can be clearly seen in photos posted on the People’s Daily Online and Xinhua.Net.

(photo above: Stone clearly showing the characters, from China official Xinua.Net)

(Video below: An advertisement TV video made by local government to promote the “hidden words stone” to attract tourists, certainly, the word “collapse” is not reported, thought its clearly shows there. Video was made in Chinese. )

According to an overseas edition of the People’s Daily, Pingtang is a high mountain valley in Guizhou province, a southwestern part of China. Zhangbu village in Pingtang County is a very scenic spot spanning over six kilometers. The natural and beautiful scenes can be viewed with many mystical mountains, rivers, rocks, caves, bamboos, trees, and fish. The area is very isolated, and has remained untouched by humans for a long time.

In June 2002, the Duyun international photography exposition recommended this area as a scenic spot for taking photographs. During routine cleaning of the area, this “hidden words stone” was accidentally discovered.

The “hidden words stone” is split in half due to having fallen from a cliff, and the gap is wide enough to accommodate two people. The two sections are each seven meters in length, nearly three meters tall and weigh 100 tons. The neatly written words “The Chinese Communist Party Collapses” can be clearly seen on the right stone, and every character is nearly a square foot in size. The characters are so clearly written that they appear as if carved.

After going to the scenic area in Zhangbu village in October 2003, the vice-editor of the People’s Daily, Liang Heng wrote, “While on cliffs people may often discover that white clouds may appear to look like dogs, or something looks like a person or a beast, a picture or a chart, however, all such things are restricted by the appearance of the picture. If today a megalith suddenly can write, speak, carve, develop writing technique, or use political terminology, how are people able to believe that? Do they even dare to believe that? However, facing these two pieces of the split “hidden words stone”, we have no alternative but to believe.”

Tourists who come to search for unusual phenomena do not actually dare to believe it. Though the craftsmanship is heavenly and Godly, how could it possibly be that skillful? There has been “the book from heaven”, “the solar stone”, “the God stone” etc. and now there is the “hidden words stone”, which has become Zhangbu valley’s main wonder of the “seven wonders,” and has received admiration from many people.

During August 2003, Pingtang County invited a geology expert from Guizhou province to investigate Zhangbu, who later wrote a detailed report about the inspection. It was determined that the “hidden words stone” fell from a high mountain cliff by the Zhangbu river valley. On the steep mountain cliff, one can see a corresponding dent from where the rock must have fallen. After the megalith fell, it split into two, and the large brush-written characters of “The Chinese Communist Party Collapses” can be clearly seen on the right hand side behind the fracture.

Three months later, the famous Chinese scientific culture inspection group for Guizhou Pingtang geological anomalies had been formed to investigate the “hidden words stone” during December 5th through 8th, 2003.

The fifteen-person team included Li Tingdong, who is an academician from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, assistant director of the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences and an expert on Aerial Geology and Geographic Charts; Liu Baojun, academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences and renowned geologists, Li Fenglin, professor at China University of Geosciences and committee member of National Geoparks in the National Land Resources Department.

Experts believed that the “hidden words stone” in Zhangbu river valley was from roughly 270 million years ago, the Permian period. The even arrangement of the characters on the “hidden words stone” may be explained from a geological perspective that there are no traces of having been man made, though the probability is small. This “hidden words stone” not only is a world-class marvelous sight, but also has great geological research value.

During this investigation, People’s Daily, CCTV, Guanming Daily, Technical Daily, Travel Satellite, China International Broadcasting station, and 20 other media reporters including People’s Daily.Net, Sina.Net, Eastern Net, Sohu.Net, Yahoo, and New China ally reported on the finding. More than 100 other newspapers, television stations, and websites have retransmitted the news about the scientific investigation.

Even though no one dares to mention the sixth character, “collapses”, and only report the first five characters, everyone who can see it understands its meaning.

In an infinite universe which allows infinite possibilities, anything might occur. In our infinite space-time, nature can always create the most ideal design; while this coincidence could only happen once in a billion years, unexpectedly it has occurred in Buyi Village, Pingtang County.

Most of Chinese communist party’s current 9 members of Standing Polibureau have gone to see the stone from 2002 to 2005. The date they went there can be found in the above Youtube video’s description.

Mystery: Ancient Chinese Yin Yang Fish Bowl Can’t be Replicated

Posted by Author on August 20, 2007


By Xin Guo, Epoch Times Staff, Aug 16, 2007 –

Ancient Chinese science and technology were very advanced. The Ancient Chinese knew more about science and technology than any other culture. For instance, the yin-yang fish bowl that is part of the collection of the Hangzhou Museum in China’s Zhejiang Province cannot be explained by modern science nor replicated by modern technology. It remains a mystery to the world.

Among the collections of the Hangzhou Museum, there is a bronze spouting bowl named the “Yin-Yang Fish Bowl.” The bowl, which is about the size of a washbasin, has two handles and a decoration of four fish at the bottom. There are four clear parabolas drawn between the fish, just as those described in the Yi Jing (The Book of Changes).

If you fill the bowl half-full of water and rub the handles with your palms, instantly the water in the bowl will tumble and the vibration will cause water to spout four two-foot-tall fountains from the mouth of each fish on the wall of the bowl.

Moreover, the bowl will make the same sound as chanting the ancient divination words in the Yi Jing.

Bowl Cannot be Replicated by Any Modern Technology

Physicists from the U.S. and Japan have used all kinds of modern scientific instruments to examine and investigate the bowl trying to find out its construction principles of heat conductivity, sensoring, self-propelling, and spraying and making sound, but have not succeeded.

In October 1986, a replica bronze spouting bowl was made in the U.S. It looked identical to the yin-yang fish bowl but was a failure, as it could not function properly: It could not spout water, and the sound it made was very dull.

Modern science can only lament its insignificance before the miracles created by ancient Chinese technology and treat it as an unsolved mystery.

What were the principles upon which ancient people made the bronze fish bowl? As developed as it is today, why can’t modern science and technology make a replica of a bronze ware bowl made by people in ancient times?

According to experts’ analysis, modern science is analytical science. Characterized by high accuracy and strict quantification, it has reached the level of micro quantum technology. The so-called “Nami Technology” may very well represent the achievements of today’s high-tech. Yet modern science has a fatal weakness: linearism. Linear science still dominates today’s modern science and continues to apply a simplified approach to natural phenomena as always.

The real world and Mother Nature do not conform to linear principles, but in most cases non-linear theory instead. Modern science and technology are nothing but man-made simplification against the truth of Mother Nature.

Fountains of water that are similar to those in the bronze spouting fish bowl are called “solitary wave” or soliton phenomena. Different from ordinary waves, solitary waves do not disperse when occurring, and therefore can last a long time. The existence of solitary waves is a non-linear phenomenon.

Thus the construction principles of the yin-yang fish bowl are far beyond the scope of modern science, and it is therefore impossible for modern technology to replicate.
