Sodom and Gomorrah? Residents of the Dead sea destroyed by a meteorite
The red-hot explosion that came from heaven, destroyed houses and settlements North of the Dead sea about 3700 years ago, scientists have found out. Radiocarbon Dating and extracted minerals that crystallized instantly at high temperatures indicate that a massive air blast caused by a meteorite that exploded in the atmosphere instantly destroyed civilization in a circular plain 25 kilometers wide, says archaeologist Philip Sylvia. This event also led to the bubbling salt solution of the Dead sea covering the once fertile agricultural land.
Maybe that’s how Sodom was destroyed.
Meteorite that destroyed Jordan
Excavations on the site of modern Jordan have shown that the Average Mountain was inhabited for 2500 years until a sudden collapse by the end of the bronze age it was destroyed. Field studies have found 120 small settlements, which also, according to scientists, were exposed to extreme heat and wind. About 40-65 thousand people inhabited the Middle Mountains, when there was a cosmic cataclysm.
The most compelling evidence of the destruction caused by the meteorite explosion at low altitude came from the bronze age city of tall al-Hammam, which Sylvia’s team has been digging up for the past 13 years. Radiocarbon Dating indicates that clay brick walls of almost all structures suddenly disappeared about 3,700 years ago, leaving only the stone base. Also, zircon crystals in the vitreous layers formed in one second at an extremely high temperature.
On tall El-Hammam was struck by the tiny, spherical mineral granules.
This is not the first example of an explosion of cosmic rocks, which created chaos on Earth. The explosion of a meteorite in a sparsely populated Siberian region in 1908, a Tunguska meteorite, killed no one, but knocked down trees on an area of 2,000 square kilometers.
