I agree, the "legitimate" sites all bailed out. However, there are still a few that discuss the several forces manipulating storms, floods, and quakes. Coronal mass ejections from the sun due to alignments, supernovae, comets, and other activity, such as, http://solarstormwarning.com/

I don't see what "thermoacoustic refrigeration" or the other stuff has to do with comets.
How can it be anything like a sonic boom - we are talking about a vacuum and there is no media in which there would be such an effect. The rest is complete hand-waving. There are many variables and intricacies - show some evidence for any of them.
So, I'll ask you again, what do comets generate that would cause earthquakes and what is the mechanism by which this "thing" causes earthquakes?
Now, I'm putting on my moderator hat.
That is not how it works in science, and more particularly, that is not how it works here. I will repeat what tusenfem has already suggested to you: you really need to read our rules and guildelines for ATM.
It is not up to anyone else to disprove your idea, to prove that "these forces do not come into play". It is completely your responsibility to prove your idea, to show some actual evidence that it does a better job of describing reality than current, mainstream theory. You need to start doing that. And you need to do more than just linking to various sites; you need to explain what is significant at that site and how it helps to support your idea.
For example, right on that page it has the following:
Sure, everyone remember March 10 when all the world's communications and navigations systems were knocked out.03.09.2012 - MASSIVE 6.4 X-CLASS SOLAR STORM NOW HEADED STRAIGHT FOR EARTH ONCE AGAIN. USA TODAY SAYS IT MAY KNOCK OUT POWER, WORLD COMMUNICATIONS, NAVIGATION SYSTEMS, ETC. IMPACT IN LESS THEN EIGHT HOURS.
And, there is nothing on that site about comets, not even the mention of the word, so what does it have to do with your idea about comets and earthquakes?
At different moments there are speed alterations in relation to Earths spin, tilt, and orbit in correlation to the comets speed and trajectory. It seems this may cause objects to move up and down the sound barrier. This may send out a "sonic boom".
Didn't say comets produced cosmic rays, did say that comets disrupt cosmic rays.
There is no "empty" space and extremely small amounts of neutral space. Space is full of vacuums and pressures, coming from all forms of various forces and objects...
Personally, I can't see what's wrong with the theory. It seems, after understand the moon's effects on our planet, that it wouldn't be that difficult to understand how other NEOs would effect Earth.
I did say that I can prove my theory, that a piece of Comet C/1811 F1 impacted Northern Mississippi. All we need to do is have these rocks, that I've collected, studied.
Non-moderator comment follows:
This suggests that you haven't adequately thought your idea through. All new hypotheses and theories have problems that their proponents must deal with: lack of supporting evidence, contradictory evidence, and so forth. Frankly, based on a lack of evidence presented so far, I don't think your idea has yet risen to the level of a theory. At best, what you have is a hypothesis which is not supported by observation.Personally, I can't see what's wrong with the theory.

There is plenty of evidence to suggest that NEOs such as comets can disrupt Earth's weather patterns, that is if you consider what our ancestors had learned from experience. Comets have always been considered a bad omen.
I'm sure you all know of the correlations discussed between Comet Elenin and last years earthquakes. These are proven mathematical numbers, just coincidence?
Actually, I don't recall you explaining it (I'm sorry if I missed it). OK, what evidence is there that comets disrupt cosmic rays? Has someone measured a decrease in cosmic rays when a comet passes? And why would cosmic rays affect earthquakes?Didn't say comets produced cosmic rays, did say that comets disrupt cosmic rays.
I don't know what you are talking about. What is "neutral space"? What do you mean "Space is full of vacuums and pressures"? No it isn't. The space between the Earth and any comet in the solar system is a vacuum, with a very low particle density / pressure.There is no "empty" space and extremely small amounts of neutral space. Space is full of vacuums and pressures, coming from all forms of various forces and objects...
We had a thread about that. Yes, coincidence.I'm sure you all know of the correlations discussed between Comet Elenin and last years earthquakes. These are proven mathematical numbers, just coincidence?
Why don't we focus on this part of your argument, as it's the one with substance. I can concede that there could have been an impact in that area in the past. Let's go with that and discuss the details of timeframe, effect, and evidence. Let's start with specific location. Where exactly?I did say that I can prove my theory, that a piece of Comet C/1811 F1 impacted Northern Mississippi. All we need to do is have these rocks, that I've collected, studied.
However, once you begin to pan out, it should be obvious that all topography encircles the proposed impact site. Notice the rivers to the north, such as The Wolf and The hatchie go around. This is also the reason The Tennessee River flows back northward. The man-made lakes to the south run from east to west beneath the impact and are where the land was split apart and pulled upward. Notice all the circular lines throught Eastern Arkansas that all wrap around the crater. Notice how far the land was pushed and pulled upward by the incredible blast it must have been. Just as someone pushing their finger up on a tablecloth, the land easily rippled from such a magnificent shockwave.

Do you have exidence that this idea of yours has become accepted by anyone qualified to comment?? Ya know, such as cometary scientists?...or authorities on Earth sciences/quakes??

this thread . It was pointed out that according to the paper used to claim that there is a correlation, that there were 90 earthquakes listed in the paper of magnitude 4.9 or greater. That's about one every four days for 2010. However, according to the USGS, in 2010, there were ~2850 earthquakes of magnitude 4.9 or greater. That's about 8 per day. I can give you a correlation for just about anything, if you give me 32 examples over a four day period. That doesn't mean that there actually is a correlation.
On another note, there are these unanswered questions:
What is the same as today?The same as today.
How is level of intellegence related to the promotion of ideas unsupported by evidence?If we were all so intelligent we woildn't need this conversation.

Same type people misunderstanding and holding back technology and science.
If your/our level of intelligence was high enough we would already know the answers to all these problems.
From that site:So this rather bizarre report dates from Feb 1812 when the comet had long faded from sight. So I fail to see how it can have anything to do with the comet.Originally Posted by Rev. John Carrigan
Also, the comet's closest approach (1.2 AU) was on October 16 (from: http://cometography.com/lcomets/1811f1.html). This means that a tiny rock was 450 times as far away as the moon 3 months before the first major earthquake in December. It is difficult to see any possible connection.
