HAARP Even before the earthquake in Chile, there’s been a lot of online chatter about HAARP and it being used as a tectonic weapon. Well, stories like this don’t help the cause: On February 26th, military scientists in Alaska tested the controversial machine, one full day before the quake in the South American country.

Does this mean the U.S. has developed a machine capable of creating disasters like earthquakes? Of course not, but it does add a whole heaping of gasoline to a conspiratorial bonfire that already seems to be burning out of control.
