Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah

As I am not extremely well versed in Old Testament Scripture, I post this with no opinions. I just think it sounds interesting! (Especially as its an example of science not conflicting with scripture, but rather providing a different angle of the same event.) Heck, the article even contains a scriptural quote :thumbsup:,2933,343674,00.html

Well, just proves that something powerful destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, and God’s timing seems to be perfectly aligned to this destruction. All things are possible with God.


Probably was not an intact asteroid. If it was, there would be a very large impact crater (craters do not disappear in a couple of millenium).

Probably the asteroid fragmented in the atmosphere and showered down. Something like the Tunguska event in Siberia. Thus the rain of fire and brimstone.
