I wonder what the astronomical set up was for the eruption of Krakatoa. From Wikipedia:

While seismic activity around the volcano was intense in the years preceding the cataclysmic 1883 eruption, a series of lesser eruptions began on May 20, 1883. The volcano released huge plumes of steam and ash lasting until late August.

On August 27 a series of four huge explosions almost entirely destroyed the island.

Interpretation belongs to Jehovah. I dare say that you can call him Allah or Lord if you like. Without the response from him it is obvious that he isn’t interested in most enquiries.

As for me I can’t help thinking that the positions of the planets, although having a certain indecipherable regularity, are not crucial per se.

They occur with enough regularity to disappoint all enquiry. However their combined effect is very targeted on the “three body problem” and the position of the moon is the mate for the entire solar system at any particular time. So the positions of the planets can be disregarded except for how they have effected the positions of the moon in all the above. The differences in its position and the computational position is the reason for the destruction evolved. That and the state of the planet at the times. (Someone having cut all the trees down.)

If you worked out the Newtonian computations and then compared the Einsteinium ones I am pretty sure you would have a number for the potency of these things.
