Sometimes (But very rarely) I will stand on a pressure plate, nothing will happen because I had a bad inverter, then the entire area around me will blow up. Oddly enough, it does very little damage, I seemed to only take ½-2 hearts of damage, despite the explosion being directly below me.
I highly doubt it's a Creeper, because this already happened twice to me, both times with Pressure Plates and Redstone.
On-topic: Have you downloaded any maps at any time? Occasionally parts from and maps you have/had make their way into your own map. And maps you played in MP count. Most likely explanation however- Creepers.

Wrong sir, wrong. YOU stole the fizzy lifting drinks and YOU touched the ceiling, therefor it must be washed and sterilized! So you get nothing! You lose! Good day sir!
Why do people think this is funny? "OMG minecraft does werd thing to mah stuf LAWL i didnt build that house WHO BUILT THAT HOUSE mah redstone EXPLODES FOR NO REASON WOW THIS IS WEIRD OMG i didnt put that cobblestone there and i open it AND LAWLZ THER R ZOMBIES EVERYWHERE?!?!?!." What a god **** waste of forum space. As if the guys posting this garbage weren't enough, there's the groupies that decide to hop on the fail train and bump this work of art thinking they're oh so clever by bandying words. Then there's the people with some innocence left in them that actually attempt to help the troll with his "problem".
Normally, I simply move on and ignore it. In most cases, it doesn't even bother me. Ordinarily, I might even smile at some of the silliness of it all. Except in this case. The OP barely even gets flamed for posting something as stupid as this. It's like everyone has no standards and decides to shoot the breeze. I could be reading cool stuff or a story or looking at an epic build or learning a new glitch, but no of course not. And it gets worse every day.
Maybe I just need to take a vacation from these boards.
Basically, it seemed as if I was "Forcing" something to happen that couldn't happen. The explosion did seem like a Creeper explosion. (It blew up part of my brick wall, for the wire was traveling under it. Nearly that entire side was destroyed.)
