"This was a natural disaster," said Dr Bart Bautisda, chief science research specialist at Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, debunking the idea that an "eco-weapon" could be used to cause an earthquake or such large-scale tsunamis.
"You would need a very huge amount of energy. It's impossible. A billion tonnes could not do it," Dr Bautisda said.
He said wave activity might be able to be triggered very close to the scene of a giant explosion, but the effect would be a tiny fraction of the tsunamis which travelled thousands of kilometres at the speed of a jet after tectonic plates shifted off Sumatra.
"It's possible to cause vibration, but not sufficient to cause disruption," he said.
"We can tell the difference between an artificial explosion and an earthquake. The mechanisms are different."
Scientific evidence, however, cuts little ice with many conspiracy theorists.
Im sure that Dr Bautisda is in on this conspiracy as well :-P
