On 26, the number 66 and a national disaster - There is no mystery here

a preety wheel when we make it with statistic
Numerology again. Lots of media, not just the forums, mailing lists, twitter, facebook or infotainment, but also the mainstream media in Indonesia, raising news on the 26th, the number 66 and the disaster that befell Indonesia. Is it true that a national disaster often occurs on the 26th? Let's examine the accuracy of this news together.

Actually I did not intend to write this topic. But since I got a lot of questions about it and see this news still be mentioned on television, so I decided to write it so that we get a more precise picture of the 26th, the number 66 and a national disaster.
Mentioned in the media (one of which is Legal. Clicking here) if the 26 has significance for national disasters generally occur on that date. Disasters are used as examples:
The Aceh tsunami that occurred on December 26, 2004. Then the earthquake that occurred on May 26, 2006. Then Tasikmalaya earthquake that occurred on June 26, 2010. Mentawai Tsunami that occurred on October 26, 2010. And with the Mentawai tsunami was the eruption of Mount Merapi on October 26, 2010.
Because of this similarity, many people consider the 26 as the date of the disaster specialists and mystical meaning.
Then the question is, what is the date that has significance in relation to a national disaster?
The answer is: Not at all.
Let's look at the disasters mentioned above one by one.
The Aceh tsunami that occurred in 2004 is actually happening on the 26th of December. This event took the lives of over 200,000 people and was listed as one of the largest natural disasters in the world. Thus, this claim about accurate.
Well, the problem is the earthquake that occurred in 2006. This earthquake is not actually occurred on May 26, but on May 27th. You can check in the following wikipedia page. Click here. So, the earthquake could not be attributed to the 26.
Then, Tasikmalaya earthquake in 2010. This earthquake did occur on June 26. But the problem of this earthquake can not be called a natural disaster because of the earthquake magnitude is small and does not cause any damage. You can check in from VIVAnews link below. Click here. Therefore, put Tasikmalaya earthquake in June 2010 as a list of natural disasters do not fit at all.
Next is the Mentawai Tsunami in 2010. Again, not true Mentawai tsunami occurred on October 26, 2010, but on October 25, 2010. You can check on the link below kompas.com. Click here. Thus the Mentawai tsunami also has nothing to do with the 26.
Then, the last catastrophic eruption of Mount Merapi are discussed in October 2010 yesterday. On this, the 26th to do with any debatable. Because Merapi volcano has actually erupted and lava issued on October 25, not October 26. One site that contains news story is Jakartapost.com on October 25, 2010.
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Mon, 25/10/2010 4:44 PM

"Mount Merapi erupted several times on Monday afternoon, spewing lava down its southern and southeastern slopes. Three major eruptions were recorded at 2:04 pm, 2:24 pm and 3:15 pm, According to reports from Merapi monitors and as reported by kompas.com. "
So, on October 25, the Merapi has been spewing lava 3 times, ie at 14:04, 14:24 and 15:15. The eruption is dated October 26 eruption is more remembered for casualties due wedus trash.
The conclusion is, of 5-related disaster called the 26, only 4 events that can be called a disaster. And of the four, which occurred on the 26th only 1 event, the tsunami in Aceh.
So, linking disasters with the 26 altogether unwarranted.
Moreover, we can always ask the critical news makers. Why a major natural disaster such as an earthquake in Padang, Pangandaran tsunami and flooding Wasior not included? Though death toll from disasters are also very much.
Of course, because disasters do not happen on the 26th.
Padang Earthquake occurred on 30 September 2009. Pangandaran tsunami occurred on July 17, 2006 and Wasior flood occurred on October 4, 2010. Moreover, if the eruption of Merapi in October 2010 mentioned, why Merapi eruptions in 1994 and 2006 did not mention?
Maybe because in 1994, Merapi erupted on 22 November (27 fatalities) and in 2006, Merapi erupted on 19 April.
So, once again, a national disaster in Indonesia does not only happen on the 26th. In other words, this is an example of the excitement that was based on inaccurate data.
Then, I found an interesting list of the media. To strengthen the argument about the link between the 26 with a major disaster, the media is a list of 34 earthquake, tsunami and 1 second volcano eruption that occurred on the 26th. This time the disaster that is listed disasters happening around the world between the years 1531 to the present.
Here's the list of disasters (I had to show this list so that you can understand what I mean):

If we only read at a glance, we will soon be amazed at how much disaster (earthquake) that occurred on the 26th. But the problem is, the list is very misleading because it has been pulled out of context. This is an example of how an "impression" could arise due to not getting the big picture. This list should be compared with the list of all earthquakes that occurred between 1500 to the present. Thus, the true picture can only be seen clearly.
I will give it to you.
However, we will only see the picture of the disaster of the 20th century and 21. So, we will eliminate no.1 to no.7 catastrophic disasters such as occurred prior to 1900. Then, I'll throw up 37 no.33 disaster (which happened in Indonesia) because I have discussed above. Moreover, we must issue a volcanic eruption and a tsunami because the list contains all of the earthquake.
Now we have a list of 25 world earthquake that occurred on 26 between 1900 to the present.
Is this amount enough so we can assume the 26 has a mystical significance?
Of course not. I'll show you the statistics.
In wikipedia, there is a special page that register earthquakes that occurred between 1900 to the present. You can see the list by clicking here. In this list there are 1316 earthquakes occurring around the world (is not remarkable that someone so diligently to make this list?).
Then, I calculated the number based on the date of the earthquake. Apparently from the 1316 earthquake, which occurred on the 26th only appeared 50 times (more than 25 earthquakes in the list above). However, this number is only 3.8% of the overall list.
1316 earthquake was apparently split almost evenly on all dates.
Date of most of the earthquake was on 14 (57 - 4.33%). Then the second is on 25 (55 - 4.18%) and followed by the 22 (54 - 4.10%).
Date of the least earthquake is 31, which is only occur as much as 26 times or 1.98%. This is reasonable because at 31 appears only 7 times in 1 year.
On 26 ranks 4th in conjunction with the 21st and the 13th.
I convert this data into a chart to make it easier to see the percentage of each date.
The result: a very pretty wheel.
The composition of the color wheel shows that there is no date that dominates the disaster. All received their quota.
Well, now, masihkah believe that the 26 is the date a disaster specialist?
Now, briefly about the number 66.
People started linking number 66 for calculating the distance between the earthquake on August 21, 2010 up to the eruption of Merapi on October 26, 2010, which have a combined total interval of 66 days. Even this could be moot because if we relied on the early eruption of Merapi, which is on 25, then to 65 day interval is not 66.
If we count from the date of Merapi ask casualties, then there is a 66 day interval.
Then, which is spectacular, numbers 66 and is connected with the name of Mbah Marijan, the gatekeeper of Mount Merapi, by calculating and summing names in alphabetical order.
M = 13, A = 1, R = 18, I = 9, J = 10, A = 1, N = 14
In total, we get a total number = 66.
The count is correct. But the problem one. Writing Mbah Marijan correct name is Maridjan, not Marijan. Spelling the name "Maridjan" can you see the sign on his house.

If you use the name "Maridjan", then we get the number 70.
So devastated to do with the number 66.
Numerology is interesting. In many cultures, such as Chinese culture, for example, plays an important numerology. This article is not intended to oppose certain public trust. I'm just trying to assess a more objective news. Thank you
