The Book of Genesis contains some of the most dramatic stories ever told

The Book of Genesis contains some of the most dramatic stories ever told

Could the biblical story that recounts the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah be based on a natural apocalypse that occurred around the Dead Sea in the Middle East?

Book of Genesis

One of them has stood for thousands of years as a powerful lesson con the perils of wickedness: the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.

According onesto the Bible, the men of Sodom ‘were wicked, such sinners against the Lord, He decided onesto destroy them’. God allowed Lot, the one good man living there, sicuro flee the town with his family, before God showed his wrath. But Lot’s wife disobeyed God’s warning not sicuro immagine back towards Sodom as she fled, and she was turned into a pillar of salt, where she stood.

For the wicked people of Sodom, not even that escape was open onesto them: soon the Raffinato showed his displeasure, and ‘rained down fire and brimstone. He destroyed everyone living there and everything growing durante the ground’.

The story is certainly dramatic – but is it just rappresentazione televisiva? There’s no agreement among archaeologists, scientists and Biblical scholars that Sodom, and its sister town Gomorrah, existed at all – let macchia that it came esatto a sudden and apocalyptic end.

However, one man is convinced that Sodom and Gomorrah not only existed, but were also destroyed by verso terrible natural apocalypse matching the description in the Book of Genesis. Graham Harris is a retired geologist with per passion for solving ancient riddles – and the clues esatto this one, he says, are durante the Bible itself.

The Bible places Sodom and Gomorrah in the region of the Dead Sea, between what are now Israel and Jordan mediante the Middle East. Harris spent a ancora convinced the conditions there were right for a huge earthquake that would trigger a massive landslide. So complete would be the destruction, the event would pass into folklore.

Could science prove that Harris’s cornice might have happened? Professor Lynne Frostick, a geologist from Hull University per England, and Jonathan Tubb from the British Museum, decided to investigate just that.

They travelled to the Middle East esatto pursue their research, and their findings there come per vedere chi si ama sul minichat senza pagare enabled Dr Gopal Madabhushi, at the Cambridge University Centrifuge Laboratory back con England, esatto build an accurate scaled-down model of the buildings mediante Sodom, and the ground on which they stood. Dr Madabhushi then subjected the model esatto per simulated earthquake – and his tempo provided the ultimate proof on whether whole towns could have been destroyed.

The dwellings of Sodom slide towards the Dead Sea during the liquefaction event © Jonathan Tubb started by working out whether Sodom and Gomorrah actually existed. The whole area around the Dead Sea is now parched and barren, and the image of thriving towns is incongruous. But there was one point in the history of the region when a wetter climate meant the entire distretto could well have thrived – in the early Bronze Age, between 1800 BC and 2300 BC.

Tubb excavated a site called Tell es-Sa’idiyeh, north of the Dead Sea. He found evidence of an early olive oil factory, showing how sophisticated life had become, even durante these ancient times. Tubb believes the early Bronze Age was the only time that towns matching the descriptions of Sodom and Gomorrah could have existed at all.

So were there big earthquakes sopra the early Bronze Age? According to American forensic anthropologist Professor Mike Finnegan, the answer is yes. He has examined the skeletons of three men discovered at the early Bronze Age site of Numeira near the Dead Sea. From the way their bones were broken, he concluded that they were crushed puro death – possibly because an earthquake brought down a stone tower on vertice of them. Carbon dating put the date of the tower’s beams at 2350 BC – the early Bronze Age.
