Earthquakes are increasing in number and severity - a sign of end times?

Many Christians believe that we are living in the end times, as delineated in the book of Revelation. One of the signs that mark the end of earthly life and the beginning of the new age of heaven and earth is that of earthquakes.

Not only in Revelation, but in the book of Matthew, Chapter 24, Jesus was asked by His disciples about signs of His second coming. In verse seven, Jesus said, "Nation will rise against nations, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places." Then, skipping to verse 25, He said "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away." Finally, verse 45 quotes Jesus as saying "So you also must be ready because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Examiner.com does not speculate on the end times, but a recent graph from the USGS Worldwide and Destructive Earthquakes with magnitudes between 6.0 - 8.0, does show a startling increase in seismic activity. Please follow this link to view a graph of the earthquakes. Note the steep slope increase. Add a comment to this article, giving us your opinion. Is this one of the signs of the end times?

    I think it is, but not because God is "causing" earthquakes. I believe when he set the world in motion he built in a "planned obsolence". I'm not worried about the world exploding or anything like that, since I believe a new heaven and earth will come after.
