Unsettling archaeology:

 

According to the theory, the meteor exploded at low altitude with the force of a ten megaton atomic bomb at an altitude of about one kilometer over the northeast corner of the Dead Sea, and obliterated all of civilization in the 25-kilometer-wide circular plain that constitutes the “Middle Ghor.”

The researchers presented preliminary findings on the subject at this year’s annual meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research in November, and have been developing the theory since at least 2015. They state that the evidence from radiocarbon dating indicates that a group of civilizations flourished in the area for over two millennia, until approximately 1700 BC, when the mud-brick walls of the buildings in the region simultaneously disappeared and only the stone foundations remained.

At the same time, the pottery in the settlements was heated into glass in the space of milliseconds, according to the results of an analysis of the Zircon crystals formed in the process, indicating that they were briefly exposed to temperatures of approximately 4000 to 12000 degrees Celsius, comparable to the temperature of the surface of the sun.

The explosion rained down platinum as well as molten lava on the region, according to two of the archeologists, and this further confirms that a meteor was the source, given that platinum is found in higher concentrations in meteors than on earth.

Approximately 40,000 to 60,000 people living in the region were killed, and a 500-square kilometer area was rendered uninhabitable for 600 to 700 years, the researchers estimate. They believe that the area was stripped of its topsoil, and that salts from the nearby Dead Sea were spread over the land, destroying its fertility.

The settlements that were annihilated in the event include the principal excavation site, “Tall el-Hammam,” which the archeologists believe is the city of Sodom, whose destruction is recounted in the Book of Genesis, chapter 19. The approximate date of the annihilation also matches the time period corresponding to the event in Genesis, according to archeologists.

Go here to read the rest.  Unsettling when we consider these words of Christ:

 

[14] And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words: going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet. [15] Amen I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Matthew 10: 14-15

Would that the Pope were concerned with this as much as he is with the mythical problem of man made climate change.

  1. It is a good thing to find scientific support for Biblical history as it helps to restore credibility in the Bible and belief in God.

    Flashing to the present, we see the Abrahamic Archbishop Vigano attempting to convince the Vatican change its ways about the presence of homosexuality and sodomy among the clergy, with perhaps the same outcome as Sodom.. I would not be surprised to see Bible history repeated in this case to show that God will take executive action when needed to his might and concern for His Church.

  2. This is especially interesting because it matches with theories that have been going since I was in high school– theories based off of the description of the destruction, which means that they took the (very limited) information, made a theory, and then went out to see if it had predictive power….which is a GOOD thing!

  3. The chronologies I have seen put Abraham at least a couple of hundred years before this explosion. Either the dating of the impact is wrong, or the estimates of Abraham’s sojourn are wrong, or these cannot be literal accounts of the same event.
