The biblical account of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah 5,000 years ago was unexpectedly validated by an ancient Sumerian clay tablet called the Sumerian planisphere.
According to a study conducted by two scientists over the course of eight years, the tablet, which has confounded scientists for 150 years, is actually a description of an actual eyewitness to the fall of an ancient asteroid that destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, killing thousands of people and wreaking havoc on an area larger than 600,000 square kilometers.
The event has been dubbed the Kofels Impact Event by scientists, and they believe it will have severe disastrous implications. The impact alone is equivalent to a TNT explosion weighing over 1000 tons.
The Old Testament story of Sodom and Gomorrah describes how the inhabitants of these cities engaged in debauchery offended Abraham, who personally chose to live elsewhere but pleaded with two angels who had come to warn of the cities’ impending destruction – to spare them for the sake of his nephew Lot, who, despite Abraham’s departure, chose to live in Sodom.
Lot and his family were eventually saved before the towns were destroyed, but Lot’s wife, after being told not to, turned into a pillar of salt as she gazed back at the blazing fire in their stead.
Salt conversion, scientists say, is a plausible depiction of what can happen to someone who comes too close to the extreme heat of a nuclear explosion.
Two historians, Alan Bond and Mark Hempsell, discovered a Sumerian astrologer’s description of the events of June 29, 3123 BC. immediately before dawn on a tablet recovered by Victorian archaeologist Henry Layard in the ruins of a royal palace in Nineveh.
They were able to recreate the night sky thousands of years ago using computers, allowing them to identify the eyewitness account on the plaque. According to Bond and Hempsell, this Sumerian tablet is a duplicate of a much older tablet created in 700 BC.
The first half of the table depicts the planets and clouds, while the second half depicts the movement of an item resembling a “stone bowl” traveling at fast speed across the sky.
According to astronomers, this rapidly moving object is the remnant of an asteroid that orbited the Sun rather near to the Earth. Its journey may bring it into contact with the valley where the biblical cities were located.
“He came at a very low angle – approximately six degrees – and then sliced off a mountain called Gaskogel about 11 kilometers from Kefels,” Hempsell explains. Hempsell continued by describing how the item detonated as it descended the valley, resulting in an event of biblical proportions.
Bond and Hempsell do assert that the explosion produced a massive mushroom cloud and that the surrounding air was densely packed with dust for hundreds of kilometers. This is referred to as the “Kefels incident” in science.
However, geologists estimate that the Kefels catastrophe occurred approximately nine thousand years ago, significantly earlier than the Sumerian record’s date of 3123 BC. Bond and Hempsell believe that the dating inaccuracy was caused by contaminated materials used in a previous examination.
Other researchers take a contrary position, claiming that Bond and Hempsell’s claims are self-contradictory. According to John Taylor, a retired archaeologist from the British Museum, there is no proof that the ancient Sumerians were capable of accurately describing such astronomical events.
However, scientists generally deny anything that contradicts their invented “true picture of human history,” and there is no doubt that when it comes to recognizing the true progress of the ancients, they immediately begin refuting any evidence that mankind’s history and level of development prior to civilization were much higher than they desired.
