Atheists ‘in a panic’ over Sodom evidence
The Conservative Tribune (Motto: In Defense of Western Civilisation) gleefully reports on new ‘evidence’ regarding the destruction of the city of Sodom, and that non-believers are now in a ‘panic’.
The ‘evidence’ was reportedly uncovered by an archaeological team led by Steve Collins, above, from New Mexico’s Trinity Southwest University.
The Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project, which has been operating for years, found ruins of a city in southern Jordon that came to “a sudden end” during the Middle Bronze Age, from 2000-1540 BCE.
Initial tests show that no life existed in that area for about 700 years after it ended.
Reporting on the discovery by the team, The Conservative Tribune said:
The discovery seems to supports the biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah, which the Book of Genesis describes as having been destroyed because of their sinfulness, including homosexuality.
Collins and his team have been working in this area for 10 years and have made major advancements in their understanding of the civilizations that existed during this age.
Because Collins and his team are so familiar with the area and other sites in the area, he is reasonably certain the area his team recently discovered is Sodom.
Collins has studied accounts of Sodom extensively and said, ‘Tall el-Hammam seemed to match every Sodom criterion demanded by the text’.
While Christians believe the story of Sodom and Gomorrah to be true, others – namely atheists – see this and other Bible stories as nothing but myths. This discovery and others like it are creating a panic among atheists, who will no doubt work tirelessly to dispute this story.
But at the end of the day, the evidence is difficult to dispute.
Writing for Haaretz back in 2014 Judd Yadid said that perhaps the only way to ever confirm the citizens of Sodom were destroyed in a fiery cataclysm for their alleged homosexuality, and by extension, that God really does hate gays, is to unearth a “smoking gun” in the form of:
Homoerotic stone inscriptions or carvings depicting man-on-man action that survived the cities’ apocalyptical end and millennia of decay.
But unlike recovered artifacts affirming the proclivities of the ancient Greeks, no smoking gun has been found in the Dead Sea region – and likely not through the Bible-and-spade brigade’s lack of trying.
