Jón, indicates that solar flares and 
earthquakes share very similar distributions but does not examine correlation 
between the two.

It is easy to theorise that solar flares, which have a large magnetic 
component, impacting on earth could disturb the big magnet in the middle. 
Remember that aurora happen at the poles. The deeper an earthquake the lower 
the frequencies that we see on the surface. Without doing any formal analysis, 
my own observation is that eigenmode activity often precedes large quakes, as 
it did in the case of the Japanese event. Similarly impacts of CMEs often 
precede eigenmode activity.

Dismissing scientific curiosity out of hand does you no credit, perhaps you 
could cite some references for your arguments. Some reasoning might be nice too 
especially as I seem to remember you yourself saying many similar things here 
over the years.

The position that "earthquakes can't be predicted therefore anyone who wishes 
to explore the possibility is nuts" is closer to religion than science.
