Exciting New Archaeological Evidence Uncovered Could be the Site of Biblical Sodom
Breaking Christian News ^ | December 12, 2011 | Brian Nixon

"It may be too early to say, but initial evidence points towards a large-scale destruction from a catastrophic event. I say this because, in that area, the skeletal remains were traumatized by an east-to-west directional event, demonstrating that the catastrophe came from a particular compass point." –Dr. Collins

snip

Dr. Collins and his team began digging at a new site [last year], Tall el-Hammam, which corresponded to several factors. Dr. Collins summarized the end result: "To start with, the Tall el-Hammam site has twenty-five geographical indicators that align with the description in Genesis. Compare this with something well known—like Jerusalem—that has only sixteen. Other sites have only five or six. So this site has a greater number of indicators than any other Old Testament site. That is truly amazing.

snip

"It began three years ago when we found some skeletal remains. Like many archaeological sites, we didn't mention the find publicly because of the potential problems involved with such remains. However, with these recent finds, we had to say something because it was so monumental."

Very interesting, thanks for posting.

I don't know about you but I am finding more and more Freepers don't read. They want it ALL out there in front of them.

I had a professor in college try to tell us one time that God destroyed Sodom because the inhabitants treated the angelic visitors poorly. I corrected her and told her it was destroyed because of the homosexuality that was pervasive there. She was absolutely floored by my statement and vehemently tried to discount what I had said. I then said, “Where do you think the word ‘sodomy’ comes from? “ She kicked me out of the class for the rest of the day. Wasn’t the last time she kicked me out either. I had her for 2 other classes and got A’s in all of them !

Yep they wanted them for sex

What floored me was Lot offered them his daughters (which they turned down)--nice father

Pyroclastic ash flow. White hot glass moving from the eruption sight at the speed of sound.

That would explain the account of Lott's wife being turned into a pillar of salt.

My guess is she actually turned around and returned to the city and died with the rest of the inhabitants of the region.

Interesting but hardly proof that this site was Sodom.

There are probably a number of sites that would be marked as an event that people suffered horrible deaths.

Until they find something that definitively marks this site as Sodom we just don't know.

Should the suppositions of thwese archeologists prove to be accurate, there will be many who will be angry since it will be one more proff that the Bible is History.
