Evidence of Nuclear War in the distant Past: The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah

The story that speaks about Sodom and Gomorrah is very interesting, not only by tales of destruction but also of the peculiar personalities involved as the angels who warned Lot to leave the doomed cities. Lot was actually warned that these cities would suffer a catastrophic fate, something that ancient astronaut theorists have interpreted as a warning before the cities were bombarded by extraterrestrial beings with high-tech weapons.

Sodom and Gomorrah are probably two of the most infamous cities that has existed on planet Earth. These cities have been lost for millennium, and only in recent years the sites have been tentatively identified by researchers who have proposed dozens of different theories about the historical cities.


The Dead Sea is contained within a sunken block confined by two parallel geological faults, a configuration that according to researchers, indicates a catastrophic origin. This strange depression was not caused by water, and the Dead Sea isn’t actually a sea but is rather a lake that doesn’t have any exits. According to mainstream science, during the Miocene period (from 7 million to 26 million years ago) the natural processes caused fractures which consequently formed the depression of the Dead sea. The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah is not believed to have been an isolated event.

Some researchers have come forward suggesting that Sodom and Gomorrah, are the Hiroshima and Nagasaki of the distant past, over 4000 years ago.

Here is what the Bible says:
(Genesis 18:20; 19: 24-26.28)
24 Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 Thus, he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. 26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

27 Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 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.

We know that the Dead Sea’s surface and shores are 429 meters (1,407 ft) below sea level, Earth’s lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 304 m (997 ft) deep, the deepest hyper-saline lake in the world. With 34.2% salinity (in 2011), it is also one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water, though Lake Vanda in Antarctica (35%), Lake Assal in Djibouti (34.8%) Jordan and many smaller rivers flow into the Dead Sea. The Jordan river has a major significance in Judaism and Christianity and, to a more moderate degree, Islam, as the site where the Israelites crossed into the Promised Land and where Jesus of Nazareth was baptized by John the Baptist. Evaporation under the scorching sun takes place on the surface of the Dead sea at a speed of more than 230 million cubic feet per day. According to the Arab tradition, there are many poisonous gasses evaporating from the lake that are so hazardous that birds cannot fly over it.

The standard historical theory about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, as written in “The Bible as History in The Pictures” by Werner Keller, sustains that the cities of the Valley of Sidim were destroyed when a tectonic plate movement caused the Great Rift Valley – of which the Dead sea is a port of, to move and the area at the southern end of the Dead Sea sank. However, Keller admits that there is a serious problem with this theory of a cataclysm in the Valley of Siddim, According to Keller:

In particular, we must remember there can be no question that the Jordan fissure was formed before about 4000 B.C. Indeed, according to the most recent presentation of the facts, the origin of the fissure dates back to the Oligocene, the third oldest stage of the Tertiary Period. We thus have to think in terms not of thousands, but of millions of years. Violent volcanic activity connected with the Jordan fissure has been shown to have occurred since then, but even so we do not get any further than the Pleistocene which came to an end approximately ten thousand years ago. Certainly we do not come anywhere near to the third, still less the second millennium before Christ, the period that is to say, in which the Patriarchs are traditionally placed.

In addition, it is precise to the south of the Lisan peninsula, where Sodom and Gomorrah are reported to have been annihilated that the traces of former volcanic activity cease. In short, the proof in this area of a quite recent catastrophe which wiped out towns and was accompanied by violent volcanic activity is not provided by the findings of the geologists.

In late 1999, a new theory was proposed by Michael Sanders and an international team of researchers who, after several tense weeks of diving in a mini-submarine, discovered what appeared to be salt embedded in the remains of ancient settlements on the seabed.

Interestingly, Sanders had discovered a peculiar map that dated back to 1650 which helped reinforce his belief that these two cities could have been located in the northern basin and not the southern end of the Dead Sea. He received the help of Richard Slater, an American geologist and expert on deep-sea diving who took him to the depths of the Dead Sea in the Delta mini-submarine with a capacity of two men. The location of Sodom and Gomorrah, in the deep end in the northern Dead Sea, according to Sanders is, even more, contradictory to history that postulated by Keller.

Now, what if these cities were not destroyed in a geological cataclysm, but rather by an apocalypse caused by the intervention of divine beings, or as some suggest, extraterrestrial beings. Were Sodom and Gomorrah attacked with atomic weapons, just as Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

Researcher LM Lewis, in his book Footprints on the Sands of Time, claims: When Hiroshima was being rebuilt, stretches of sandy soil were found to have been atomically changed into a substance resembling a glazed silicon-permeated by a saline crystalloid. Little blocks of this were cut from the mass and sold to tourists as souvenirs of the town – and of an atomic action.

Had an even larger explosion pulverized every stone of every building – and had the complete city disappeared into thin air – there would still have been tell-tale indications of what had occurred on the outskirts of the area of devastation. At some points, there would surely be a marked difference in the soil or an atomic change in some object of note.

  1. I also read that after the Hiroshima bombs went off that they noticed white piles when tested turned out to be piles of salt from humans that had been vaporised and the salt content of the bodies left on the ground, hence the pilar of salt that was of Lottie she too was turned into salt another bible story come true

  2. (Genesis 18:20; 19: 24-26.28)
    24 Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 Thus, he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. 26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

    27 Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 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.

    If you go by this verse then you should realize that it was not an nuclear explosion. If Abraham was close enough to look down toward Sodom and Gomorrah the day after and the explosions were nuclear then I don’t think Abraham would have survived. Nuclear blasts carry their effects for thousand and thousands of miles outward killing and destroying everything in sight, not to mention the radiation levels would have been to extreme for anyone to be that close and survive and according to scripture Abraham lived a very long life without any suffering (sickness) mentioned.
    The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was intentional and meant only for those cities and those who dwelt there. Abraham was able to witness the destruction the day after and the passage above references burning sulfur so whatever caused the destruction was done only to those cities and not the surrounding areas. Maybe a meteor type storm of great magnitude that contained burning sulfur designed to hit only those cities, a storm of which the likes has not been seen since.

    1. With all due respect, it says right there in your own quote that the whole plain was destroyed, not just the two cities.

    2. Not thousands of miles. Depends on the yield…but thousands of miles is one bomb…whole continent.

    3. You are assuming based upon our current level of nuclear technology. God, or any other extraterrestial being would have to have far more advanced technology… including nuclear technology.

    1. or looked at Scottish Castles and Forts with “Glassified” Walls

  3. Sodom was a green grass location. That gave the impression of production of wealth. The city had been looted by a king from a another location. The city had itself its own king. That likely also confiscated some wealth as the city was known for its stealing. Regardless the condition of it stated was also “Pride, fullness of bread”. The city also had a liberal progressive judge. In the book of Josher it states that the judge ordered beds in the streets for the homosexual public rape of any passer by. Clearly Lot got there before this law. Such conditions can be cult like such as obey them that rule over you under crony justice and corruption for law. With a good share of mental illness, suicide, murder, delusion, violence. As you look at what is really going on and the effects of it. This picture is becoming more clear. It was destroyed for far more reasons than just being homosexual. The city also had idols.

    When the two angels came Lots family with relatives were total ten. So six did not believe Lot and were left behind to die. Lot and his wife and two daughters left interestingly with much of nothing. Keep in mind this is not a type of the rapture.

    Remember Lots wife.

    Lots wife turned around to look back at Sodom after seeing what she saw and being told not to. Some claim the reason was do to her to be lost relatives. However it is used in the new testament to remind converted 144,000 Jews to not gather their belongings when they leave. The conclusion is that she looked back for her lost wealth if not more reasons.

    She became a pillar of salt. Likely quickly over time. The word used in Hebrew for pillar is to set up an memorial. That would imply it was to be seen. The contrast to this is used for the church age Philadelphia that pillar in Greek means a column.

    Salt means salary in Latin. It was traded for slaves. Used for payment. It was worshiped by the Greeks. It was used to seal an agreement. Used for both gifts and a means for respect for the dead in Egypt. Also in purifying rituals. It was used in war to defeat a city by preventing plant growth. As Scripture states the wages of sin is death. Proverbs 11:3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them… Integrity means unreserved loving submission. Basically Adam and Eves curse on nature was a mirror reflection of Adam, Eve and Satan’s evil desires. You reap what you sow.

    I wonder of Lots wife was a set up situation. Was it in this way to be a test of her faith. Also odd is this is a volcano explosive type eruption. Often such would freeze and cover the person with ash. Too close would blow a person backward and cover them. Yet she had to be rather close to Lot at that point of time. Yet no effect of harm on him.

    1. Divine blessings to you. Are you Jewish? The book of Josher you speak about isn’t in my Bible and the paragraph speaking of the homosexual rape beds I can’t find. The best I can find is in Genesis 19:4&5 “But before they retired for the night, all the men of Sodom, young and old, came from all over the city and surrounded the house. They shouted to Lot “where are the men who came to spend the night with you? Bring them out to us so we can have se with them!”
      Am I looking in the wrong place?

    2. Do you mean ‘The Book Of Jasher’? I have a copy of that book.

  4. We must remember that the Bible’s translation into English is not always correct as the Hebrew language has more than one meaning for a word so take the wrong meaning of the word and you have changed the context of the scripture. Im currently learning Hebrew so I can read the Bible in its original format. The front pages of my Bible explain how they’ve ‘modernised’ and ‘simplified’ phrases and verses to match modern living. This is obscuring the word of God!

  5. genesis 19 .11 They struck the men who were at the entrance of the house, both young
    and old, with a blinding light so that they were unable to find the
    entrance. ( the angels have lazer gun or advance weapon 🙂 )
