In the Bible, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by God because residents lived a life of sin. According to the book of Genesis, "the Lord recognizes on Sodom and ġiljun Ġorġra and fire from the Lord from heaven. And He destroyed these cities, and the whole country, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and all things that spring from the World. "
Scientists believe they have discovered in the archaeological excavation sites of cities, but offer a scientific explanation as to why the locations were eliminated.
Archaeologists claim that the cities were located at the edge of the North Dead Sea, now called Middle Ghor.
What is interesting is that the sites, scientists have discovered strange minerals that say they are the result of & # 39; super-heated asteroid exploding in the region.
The carbon radarboni vary from this explosion & # 39; the asteroid of & # 39; about 3,700 years ago – to match the biblical schedule.
The researchers called the explosion & # 39; the asteroid Event & # 39; 3.7KYrBP Kikkar and had performance & # 39; & # 39 aircraft; 10 megatons.
The archaeologist of the University & # 39; Trinity Southwest and biblical researcher Phillip Silvia says the explosion was outside the grasp f & # 39; wide circular line & # 39; 25km, and destroyed a nearby solutions.
Prof. Silvia says that he and his city were digging the Bronze city ruins & # 39; Tall el-Hammam, near Sodom and Gomorrah, and it is this place that provides the greatest evidence & # 39; explosion & # 39; altitude & # 39; low altitude.
Prof. Silvia and his team write their research website of Mining Tall el-Hammam Project: "The site was started (at least) during the 4 BCE millennium, b & # 39; robust for at least a thousand years as an open agricultural community.
"But at the beginning of the third BKE millennium, occurred dramatic disruption in the relative peace of the region, and caused the inhabitants of & # 39; Tall el-Hammam to build a formidable defensive system that included a brick wall stone and mud.
"The phenomenon has resulted in the destruction of civilization on" enhanced plain of Jordan "and the recovery of & # 39; reċokupazzjoni for many centuries now came through & # 39; analysis done by researchers & # 39 ; " impact "of seven & # 39; participating universities.
"That's the most productive farmland in the region, which was supported civilizations constantly growing for at least 3000 years, has f & # 39; suddenly abandon, then resist, the human habitation for so long a & # 39; time requested investigation.
"The physical evidence of Tall el-Hammam and neighboring sites show signs of & # 39; konkussiv and most destructive thermal event that can & # 39; expect from what is described in Genesis 19.
"The soil samples / ash collected from Tall el-Hammam contain evidence of & # 39; surface destruction & # 39; below and contamination & # 39; under the surface with & # 39; Marine salts deceased were preventing the cultivation of crops for many centuries after the event. "
