Scientists have found evidence that proves the truth of the story of God’s wrath against the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Bible. 

The only explanation for this discovery is that burning debris fell on the buildings of that time from the air. But how could such a thing happen? 

The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah is the story of God’s judgment on the sinful city, “Here is the wickedness of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters lived in an abundance of bread and without care, and they did not help the poor and the wretched. 

The abominations became proud before the eyes of my chinjah, and that’s why I wiped them out, as he saw!” (Ezekiel 16:49-50). Behind this discovery stood hundreds of researchers who excavated an ancient Middle Eastern city now called Tall el-Hammam. 

Interest in the town’s history began about 15 years ago when it was covered with about five feet of charcoal, ash and molten material. 

The destruction of the city was not caused by the usual natural disaster According to the researchers, the “destruction layer,” was not caused by a volcano, earthquake or war, because none of these events could have melted the metal or ceramics found in the layer. 

They used the Online Impact Calculator, which accurately estimates the details of a cosmic impact event, based on known impact events and nuclear detonations. 

It was concluded that a small asteroid could have been behind the destruction, but it did not reach the ground as researchers believe it exploded into a fireball about 3 kilometers above the city. In the event of such an explosion, clothing and wood immediately caught fire, and ceramics and metal weapons began to melt as temperatures soared past 1,982 degrees Celsius. 

Isn’t this what God’s word says in Genesis 19:24-25: “Jehovah rained sulfurous fire from heaven on Sodom and Gomorrah and destroyed those cities and all that plain, all the inhabitants of the city and all the vegetation on the earth.” 

The researchers also found significant physical evidence to support their claims. At Tall el-Hammam, grains of sand known as impact quartz were discovered, which only form at a pressure of 328,000 kg per square inch. 

They also found microscopic diamonoids that were smaller than flu viruses. The scientists wrote that the wood and plants in the area immediately turned into a diamond-like material under the influence of high pressure and temperature. 

They supported their claims by conducting experiments in laboratory furnaces, which proved that the pottery and mud bricks found at Tall el-Hammam melted at more than 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Small traces of dissolved metals on ceramics The researchers found small traces of dissolved metals on the ceramic, including iridium, which has a melting point of 2,446 degrees Celsius. T

hey concluded that temperatures in the city rose more than those from volcanoes, wars and city fires, and the only logical explanation could be a cosmic impact. 

The location of Tall el-Hamman near the Dead Sea is very similar to the description of Sodom in Genesis. Researchers believe that the story of the city’s destruction may have been passed down through the generations until it found a place in the Bible. 

It is no coincidence that scientists and researchers prove the truth of the events recorded in the Bible. The God of the Bible confirms that He is true and gives each of us the opportunity to be reconciled with Him.
