    Earthquake prediction is a popular pastime for physics and pseudo-scientists and extravagant claims of past success are ( common ). 地震預測是相當受物理學家及偽科學家們歡迎的休閒活動而預測的準確度總是被過度渲染。Predictions claimed as “success” may ( rely on) a restatement of well-understood long-term geologic earthquake hazard,or be so broad and ( vague ) that they are fulfilled by typical background seismic activity. 預測要能宣稱為「準」有賴於將長期熟知的地震災害重新詮釋或者將其定義訂得很廣、很模糊以至於連一般傳統典型的地震活動也都列入災害之列。Neither tidal forces nor unusual animal behavior have been useful for predicting earthquakes. 不論是潮汐的力量還是動物之不尋常行為對預測地震都不太管用。If a(n) ( unscientific ) prediction is made, scientists cannot state that the predicted earthquake will not occur, because an event could possibly occur ( by chance ) on the predicted date, though there is no reason to think that the predicted date is more likely than any other day. 如果有人提出不合科學的地震預測,科學象並無法事先指證該預測不會發生因為即使沒有理由相信所預測地震之發生日會有較高的地震發生率但是當日卻有可能恰巧發生地震。
