I'm pretty confident that scientific means for understanding our planet will come along nicely as well.

    Well, okay, I'll still eat them, but I'm definitely going to feel a little bad about it.

    there is a thing called google that allows you to do a ton of research on multiple subjects. it is very educational or can be. you could have taken 5 seconds to look it up.

    It is the statement that this sort of thing was "proven." If so I would like to see the research that proved it.

    I do not have to bother searching research that supports other people's statements. That is their job if they wish to promote their position.

    I'm pretty sure the main problem people have with using animals' behavior as a form of disaster prediction is that it doesn't give a very good (or consistent) idea of what the disaster is going to be. For example, take the bison being spooked by an earthquake. As Jmotivator pointed out, bison are spooked by earthquakes. Problem is that there are up to 3000 earthquakes in Yellowstone per year. So at that point bison running around suddenly doesn't really narrow anything down.

    LOL...Natives saw them as sacred but, they ate them.

    that is a totally different argument and discussion. i don't think anyone said to actually use that as an indication.

    the fact is though that animals can and have picked up on natural disasters before they occur and sometimes before human technology can see it.
    the tsunami's in south asia they all fled for the hills. some people saw it and got out of there before they hit.

    no one said to use them as an indicator of something but that they are able to sense and or pickup that something is wrong before it happens.

    Yup and if you wish to look into it further, the relevent studies are listed below the article.
