Sodom and Gomorrah

    The other day on the Discovery channel (or another channel like) I saw a documentary

    trying to evidence what happened, and the conclusion was that a massive earthquake hit the area, and methane gas

    trapped under the rocks caught the place on fire. The bible account is explained as "natural disaster, explained through mithological accounting"

    No fire from the sky as it is written, and greatly exaggerated!!!!!

    I didn't even know they confirmed the location.

    It might be in the middle of the lake (dead sea)

    Just another story with no proof whatsoever.

    Didn't see the documentary, but the area around the Dead Sea is noted for lots of faulting and fractures in the crust, with lots of earthquake activity and volcanic deposits. This could explain many "miracles" which were attributed to the actions of supernatural forces, i.e. walls of cities collapsing, bodies of water changing positions, cities being destroyed. Volcanic activity a few hundred miles away completely wiped out the cities built on Thera, and led to collapse of the Minoan culture, as well as creating enormous clouds of ash which blackened the sky for days, oddly at almost exactly the time the Exodus was supposed to occur.
