Why do earthquakes occur?.

In ancient times earthquakes were characterized by strange traditions and stories. As we heard in our childhood, a very large bull raised the earth on one of its horns. When he changes the horn, there is an earthquake.

The Greek Diwmalai stories tell that the earthquake occurred when Poseidon, the god of the sea, touched the ground with his spear.

Ancient Greek philosophers believed that underground gases were full.  An earthquake occurs when the gases try to exit.

By the eighteenth century, Western scientists, including Newton, had been supportive of this theory. Earthquakes are triggered by the explosion of volcanic material in the earth’s crust.
