Decoded: ‘The clay tablet that tells how an asteroid destroyed Sodom 5,000 years ago’
Researchers believe that the tablet’s symbols give a detailed account of how a mile-long asteroid hit the region, causing thousands of deaths and devastating more than one million sq km (386,000 sq miles).
The impact, equivalent to more than 1,000tons of TNT exploding, would have created one of the world’s biggest-ever landslides.
Ancient record: Scientists claim the tablet, thought to be a 700BC copy from an even earlier civilisation, describes how a mile-long asteroid hit the Earth
The Old Testament story describes how God destroyed the ‘wicked sinners’ of Sodom with fire and brimstone but allowed Lot, the city’s one good man, to flee with his family.
The theory is the work of two rocket scientists – Alan Bond and Mark Hempsell – who have spent the past eight years piecing together the archaeological puzzle.
At its heart is a clay tablet called the Planisphere, discovered by the Victorian archaeologist Henry Layard in the remains of the library of the Royal Palace at Nineveh.
Using computers to recreate the night sky thousands of years ago, they have pinpointed the sighting described on the tablet – a 700BC copy of notes of the night sky as seen by a Sumerian astrologer in one of the world’s earliest-known civilisations – to shortly before dawn on June 29 in the year 3123BC.
Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them committed and practiced both sexual immorality and perversions against our Creator’s established Way, which is the laws for an harmonious creation. As one did, so did the other, and those cities and their inhabitants serve as an example by having undergone the punishment of eternal fire. They were true decedent of Adam in that they followed his path to eternal destruction.
Hosea 6:7 “But they, like Adam, have violated the covenant; there they have betrayed Me.”
Psalm 90:3 “You return mankind to the dust, saying, “Return, descendants of Adam.”
Know this! I will come with thousands of Father’s holy ones to execute judgment on all, and to convict them of all their ungodly deeds that they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things ungodly sinners have said against our Creator, our Mother of love, Yahweh. I am Her vindicator.
