“Radiocarbon dating and unearthed minerals that instantly crystallized at high temperatures indicate that a massive airburst caused by a meteor that exploded in the atmosphere instantaneously destroyed civilization,” says archaeologist Phillip Silvia.
This new evidence lends even greater credibility to the Biblical account where these cities of sin were destroyed by God.
Archeologists have found evidence of Bronze Age settlements in the region north of the Dead Sea that were destroyed approximately 3,700 years ago.
The area, a 25-kilometer-wide circular plain believed to be the site of Sodom and Gomorrah, was so desolated that people did not return to resettle the region for 600-700 years.
