Oh, BTW,  heavy duty earthquake around Mt. Etna today.
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

There was a story a while back that Pliny may have gotten the date wrong by a few months.

True.  They found some graffiti that said it was October 79, not August 79.  Well Pliny Jr was writing 25 years after the event.

While there is no specific connection between far-flung volcanoes erupting, it woukldn't surprise me greatly if many volcanoes did.  Tectonics are slow to change, but there have been times of greater volcanic activity than others. 
In 1987 there were eleven major earthquakes, each seven days after the prior one. The plot went right around the world. I was intrigued.

My cousins predict the end of the world every year. Then they pray real hard and the Lord relents. For one more year.

Reminds me of this old joke

A cop walks down 5th Avenue in New York and sees a guy standing there snapping his fingers.

"What's up, my friend?" he asks jovially.

"I'm keeping the rhinos away," the man answers.

"This is New York.  There are no rhinos," he replies.

"Ya see?"  the guys says truimphantly.

Not a critical mass of gays yet ... for G-d to destroy some other location unrelated to gays.

When the citizens of Dover Pa threw the creatard morons off the school board Pat Robertson said they better get ready for god to send them a disaster.  Shortly thereafter Kansas was ravaged by tornadoes demonstrating once again that god has a shitty aim.

Well, God is so old that his eyesight is probably not as good as it used to be.

Japanese are un-ironic, when they display the "kami" was being deaf (due to old age).

The 1908 Messina earthquake occurred on 28 December in Sicily and Calabria, southern Italy with a moment magnitude of 7.1 and a maximum Mercalli intensity of XI. The cities of Messina and Reggio Calabria were almost completely destroyed and between 75,000 and 200,000 lives were lost.

When you say "a while back" do you mean last year or a few centuries ago?  I mean, are you saying the eruption date was wrong or that he wasn't there?

Not trying to start an argument, just asking for clarification of your post.
