Skip to comments.Evidence of Sodom? Meteor blast cause of biblical destruction, say scientists

A multi-disciplinary team of scientists has a new theory for why all human civilization abruptly ended on the banks of the Dead Sea some 3,700 years ago.
According to analyzed archaeological evidence, the disaster of biblical proportions can be explained by a massive explosion, similar to one recorded over 100 years ago in Russia. [ ]
As reported in Science News, at the recently concluded Denver-based ASOR Annual Meeting, director of scientific analysis at Jordans Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project Phillip J. Silvia presented a paper, The 3.7kaBP Middle Ghor Event: Catastrophic Termination of a Bronze Age Civilization during a session on Environmental Archaeology of the Ancient Near East.
According to the papers abstract, the scientists discovered evidence of a high-heat explosive event north of the Dead Sea that instantaneously devastated approximately 500 km².
The explosion would have wiped out all civilization in the affected area, including Middle Bronze Age cities and towns.
Silvia told Science News that the blast would have instantly killed the estimated 40,000 to 65,000 people who inhabited Middle Ghor, a 25-kilometer-wide circular plain in Jordan.

So God used a meteor. Super efficient.
I bet it came from Uranus. Or possibly from some Black Hole.
Doesn’t look like a meteor to me... the city walls are still standing? Also tests on the brimstone or sulphur balls found there... very unusual chemical analysis.
Well, you know how the new “science” goes: concoct a predetermined conclusion and then try and mutilate all of the evidence to fit.
So they found some brimstone residue?
Other archaeological digs in and around Jordan that lay claim to being the damned cities have absolutely no ash or sulfur. It was John Wyatt that seems to be the first that pointed out what was in plain sight for thousands of years...
Right? Probably didn’t even have to keep up off the couch...
You beat me to it!

The Physical Ashen Remains of Sodom & Gomorrah | DESTROYED BY FIRE & BRIMSTONE
Reminds me of Pompeii... people were killed by the chemical “attack’ if that’s what you want to call the volcanic gasses.
Students aren’t taught chemistry anymore, I’m sure that’s how the Elite MSM deceive the masses on things like this. I’m old enough that I remember trying to memorize periodic charts...
The Physical Ashen Remains:
DESTROYED BY FIRE & BRIMSTONE
And God spaketh...”Shove THIS where the sun don’t shine!”.
Regardless of the device used, the lesson remains. God has a point where He won’t put up with wickedness. We are rushing toward that point.
I wonder how they would explain Zoar surviving in the midst of all that?
“And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed” (Luke 17:26-30).
Gen 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
Two Yehova in on sentence.
[ all human civilization ]
While not commenting on other aspects of the article, it was only the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah.
“All human civilization” is closer to true in the Great Flood when only 8 survived.
That’s directed at the article.
Yep, that’s the tetragrammaton x 2 there.
