Archaeologist excavating the Bronze Age city of Tall el-Hammam reported in November at the annual meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research, their discovery of evidence of a “cosmic airburst event that obliterated civilization,” wiping out Middle Bronze Age cities and towns of the plains in Middle Ghor, north of the Dead Sea, about 3700 years ago.
Some researchers identify Tall el-Hammam as the former Sodom.
Genesis 19 describes how God “rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah destroying all the plain…and what grew on the ground.”
Meanwhile, the scientific team, which includes experts from the Comet Research Group, an international society of comet impact scientists, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory, one of the largest science and technology institutions in the world, said evidence points to an instantaneous devastation of an area “approximately 500 km2” that left only the “stone foundations” of mud brick walls, and destroyed the soil with “a super-heated brine of Dead Sea” salts.
The researchers estimated 40,000 to 65,000 people were killed instantly by the catastrophe.

When Jesus Christ comes the second time to earth, everyone is going to believe the Bible is true ….but it will be too late then.
Blessed are those who order their lives according to the Holy Scriptures now.
“God is not a man, that He should lie…” Numbers 23:19
“The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul.
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart.
The commandments of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever.
The judgement of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether.
They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.
Moreover, by them, Thy servant is warned; in keeping them is great reward.
Psalms 19: 7-11
