Evidence suggests 'atomic bomb' destroyed biblical Sodom

The biblical account of the city of Sodom is not as well known as some other accounts, and certainly provides evidence for the belief that the Bible documents violence in that day.

It’s when the city was “destroyed by fire from heaven” during the time of Abraham.

Located in the plain of Jordan, it was destroyed for “the sin of sodomy,” an online report confirms.

It was that city that, condemned for destruction by God, would be spared, God promised Abraham, if 10 righteous people could be found. However, the fiery bombardment ended life there.

Now a report from Relevant Magazine reveals that experts have found “compelling evidence” that Sodom was destroyed by an “atomic bomb.”

It is John Bergsma, a professor of theology at Franciscan University in Ohio, that said evidence now links the ruins of Tall el-Hammam in the Jordan Valley to the story of Sodom’s destruction.

The event “may have been caused by an asteroid impact,” the report explains.

Tall el-Hammam reportedly was a thriving city 3,600 years ago that suddenly vanished.

Scientists have found no signs of a military siege, leaving the door open for the answer to be a “cataclysmic event,” the report said.

“One of the key revelations that piqued Bergsma’s interest was the discovery of extreme heating on skeletal remains and pottery fragments at the site. This heat damage could potentially be attributed to an asteroid impact, similar to what is described in Genesis 19 when God ‘rained down burning sulfur’ on Sodom and Gomorrah, completely annihilating them,” Relevant reported.

Further, Bergsma said pottery found at the site was covered with Trinitite, that “glass layer that you get when you set off an atomic bomb in the desert and it melts the sand.”

There’s more, Bergsma said. “Human skeletons are complete up until about halfway up the backbone, and then there’s just a scorch mark, and there’s nothing on the top of the body. They found massive evidence that a huge heat blast from the sky…”

The report also explained that the principal archaeologist at Tall el-Hammam, Steven Collins, compared the damage to the Tunguska Event of 1908, where an asteroid explosion over Siberia left destruction, only he suggested the Tall el-Hammam event might have had more explosive power than the Hiroshima atomic bomb.

The Tunguska event, NASA has reported, happened when an asteroid hit the earth’s atmosphere and exploded, triggering a fireball, forest fires and trees blown over for miles.

Because of the remoteness of the location, scientists didn’t arrive there until 1927, when they still found evidence of the shock wave and heat blast.

A report from CBN noted that the Smithsonian Magazine confirmed pottery was melted on the outside, but untouched on the inside.

CBN noted, “Genesis 19:27-28 describes the aftermath in the valley. ‘Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the Lord. He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace.'”

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Believe it or not, today’s high priests of climate-change apocalypse are correct in predicting that in just a few short years, the earth will become miserable, wretched and almost uninhabitable by human beings. But the grim future they envision won’t come about because of “catastrophic climate change,” but rather, because of the implementation of their completely insane and truly catastrophic agenda.

As Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore recently admitted, “If they actually achieve Net Zero, at least 50% of the population would die of hunger and disease.” Likewise, writes energy expert and author Alex Epstein: “Today’s proposed policies to rapidly eliminate fossil fuel use would, if fully implemented, have truly apocalyptic consequences – making the world an impoverished, dangerous, and miserable place for most people.”

Question: When the scientific case for global warming apocalypse consists primarily of a 1-degree Celsius rise in temperature over more than 130 years, what explains the obsession with an imminent, climate-caused end of the world?

Although many groups have been drawn into the Climate Change Cult – from the news media (which has warned of climate catastrophe, either global warming or a “new ice age,” for over a century!), to innocent school kids indoctrinated by hysterical leftist teachers, to liberal Democrats who claim “climate change” will destroy the earth in a few years – the REAL villains are the national and global elites who KNOW the apocalyptic global warming religion is just a cruel hoax, but promote and exploit it as a means of accomplishing their ultimate goal: Transforming and ruling the world.

The heart and soul of today’s bizarre, pagan climate-change religion, and the global elites’ strategies for using it to rule all of mankind, is powerfully exposed and illuminated in the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, an issue titled “CULT OF THE CLIMATE APOCALYPSE: The elites’ breathtaking strategy for ruling the world.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
