The ancient Bible city Sodom was not just a real place, but it was destroyed by fire from the sky as the Bible claims. However, in controversial new paper released this week, archaeologists say that there was a fire in the form of "huge asteroid explosion" in the air above this region.
Like Newsweek Reports, some historians long believed that the story of the Old Testament of Sodom and Gomorrah might be something. For familiar people, Genesis 18-19 describes how God is angry with the wickedness of the men of two cities, destroying them both by fire. And when some serious scientists believed that cities were destroyed by the wrath of the revenge goddess, some people believed that cities could be met by a meteor strike.
Now, new evidence supports the theory.
Philip Sylvia and his team of Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerx published their findings this week in an annual meeting of the American School of Oriental Research in Denver, Colorado.
The Sylvia team believes that the potential site of the city known as "Sodom" was actually Dead Sea-Area, the Bronze Age settlement, known as Tal al-Hammam, is believed to have been destroyed almost 3,700 years ago.
Using radio carbun dating, Sylvia's team gave settlement time to settle the estimated time of the settlement biblical event. The "tropical phenomenon", probably due to meteoric friction or explosion, is filled with the above atmosphere of the area, it heats the structure on the ground so that the brick is reduced in the curtain. Israel Times. Some materials were crystallized immediately, and the outer part of some pottery branches were dissolved in the glass, it also showed a sharp rise in temperature.
Silivia's team says that this phenomenon is heated to the ground so that it will release its nutrients – which explains that once the rich series of colonies will be left unexpectedly, it will be returned only after centuries.
"The most productive agricultural land in the region, which supported sustainable civilization for at least 3,000 years, should be left abruptly, then should be resistant, the human settlement has long sought a probe."
Meters do not really need to strike on land to cause unexpected disasters. One of the largest meteorological events in recorded history is a meteorite (or perhaps a comet) that explodes in mid-air instead of hitting the ground. The Tunguska event of 1908, for example, is believed to have exploded at some heights of land due to the rock of the place, which is the level of thousands of square miles in the process. Fortunately, it happened in a distant area and this writing is not believed to be attributed to any human death.
