Just out of interest, can you tell me which century has NOT had these?

The key point for you is that there seems to be MORE of these nowadays. But is that really the case? Or is it simply that, in these days of CNN and t'Internet and 7 billion people inhabiting the planet, we get to see these things LIVE, as they happen... and when things like the latest Tsunami kick off, they affect more people?

I really don't know the answer, but besides this, I really think seeing "nation against nation", "food shortages" and "earthquakes" as SIGNS is missing the point.

I think Jesus is saying the exact OPPOSITE. These things are common, and are not "signs". He gave a specific UNIQUE sign in Matthew 24, completely unrelated to earthquakes etc that EVERYBODY keeping watch in Judea would recognize.
