The massive 8.8 earthquake that struck Chile may have changed the entire Earth's rotation and shortened the length of days on our planet, a NASA scientist said Monday.
The quake, the seventh strongest earthquake in recorded history, hit Chile Saturday and should have shortened the length of an Earth day by 1.26 milliseconds, according to research scientist Richard Gross at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.
"Perhaps more impressive is how much the quake shifted Earth's axis," NASA officials said in a Monday update.
What sort of affect do you think this will have on us?
What do you think the shift of the earth's axis will do?
The axis shift will change weather patterns. Al Gore will use the changes to promote his agenda. The ignorant will believe him.

A shift in the earth's axis is one of the theories out there for the end times. I also heard this morning that the quake in Chili may be a precursor for another massive quake in northern California and Washington state.
