Fallacy of Sinful Sodom

Nowhere in biblical tales is there ever any mention as to what was happening across the rest of planet Earth or in other civilizations during the timeframe-settings used in the priest-composed stories.  The tale of the “sinful” city of Sodom (and Gomorrah, etc) is found in the scriptural book of Genesis, a title meaning beginnings, i.e. Creation.  So the tale of Sodom is another disguised account of the Creation process.  That ancient “city” in the region of Palestine is traditionally accepted as having been located just south of the Dead Sea and was destroyed by “brimstone and fire from the Lord (Genesis 19:24-25), allegedly due to its occupants’ incorrigible wickedness.

That some actual worldwide traumatic event(s) occurred in past eras and were later recounted from the limited perspective of one group of people in one limited locality should always be taken into account.  Those prehistory events, passed down through oral legends and drawn upon for plotlines to serve as a history for the nomadic Hebrew people, were not perfectly reworked.  Whatever the legends origins may have been, the Genesis tale of Sodom and Gomorrah has been presented through millennia as the ultimate symbols of human wickedness and divine retribution.  The peculiar aspect of this biblical tale is that the city’s implied “sinfulness” is never specified; it all hangs on insinuation.  The titillating suggestion that the men of Sodom were primarily same-sex oriented was an interpretation of a later interpreter of holy word, injected no doubt to spice up a monologue to get people’s attention—or perhaps to express some repressed desire.

To repeat, the priest-written book of Genesis is about beginnings, the process of Creation, particularly the buildup of energies that manifest as matter.  (This is encoded in Einstein’s formula E=MC2.)  Each developmental stage, or what ancient teachings referred to as a patriarchal principle of Creation, is thus disguised as some Hebrew/Israelite “patriarch” throughout the book of Genesis.  Each of the claimed “patriarchs” actually represent some developmental stage of energy involvement; and each level of energy has certain inherent limitations, thus each subsequent level of creative energy supersedes the previous one.  This is the meaning behind all the “begats” of unknown characters that are listed.  And this brings us to the disguised meaning behind the destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim (Genesis 18-19), each of which represent a pre-physical energy level.  In the subplot of Lot, the nephew of the “patriarch” Abraham, Lot is the focus on the transitional phase of energy into the next level of creative energy which is accounted for by the “Lord” allowing Lot to flee to the fifth “little” city of Zoar, which is stressed as being “nearby.” (Genesis 19:20)

So what traumatic period of real planetary history was used to give this story its apparent background legitimacy?  There are two general timeframes that have been used in attempts to find confirmation of Sodom’s existence and destruction: Those dates are 29 June 3123 BCE, and the other is a timeframe between c. 2800 and 2300 BCE.  In more recent times researchers have concentrated more on the earlier 3123 BCE timeframe.  Interestingly, the first year of the Jewish calendar is placed in the year 3760 BCE, which allows a mere 637 years for serious accounting of alleged Israelite events leading to Sodom being obliterated by god’s wrath.

There is proof that throughout the narrow timeframe of 3200-3100 BCE a very serious planetary trauma was being played out.  On the opposite side of planet Earth, for example, a precise date was recorded in a Mayan account: It records a terrifying period of long darkness that began in the night of 4 Ahau 8 Cumku, which corresponds to modern reckoning as the 13th of August 3114 BCE.  And curiously the earliest “omen tablets” of the Sumerian/Babylonian cuneiform tablets have also been dated from this general timeframe!  Something of worldwide importance alarmed all world cultures.  Scientific investigation has detected that a large meteorite was  involved earlier on the date 29 June 3123 BCE.  Whatever occurred nine years later in 3114 BCE was likely a secondary event set off by that earlier heavenly disturbance.  Strangely, in this timeframe the celestial body we know as the planet Venus suddenly gained holy importance to many world cultures.

Was that celestial object we call Venus the cause, or did it act as a deflecting influence?  Venus does have some strange characteristics that do not match with the rest of the solar family lineup.  For example, Venus is the only planet to revolve on its axis in an opposite direction from any of the other planets.  Furthermore, Venus is unique in that it has the most sluggish rotation in the solar system: it is some 250 times slower than the rotation of Earth.  But for whatever the reason for Venus’ difference, the timeframe of 3123 BCE is a highly unlikely time for the Sodom saga in relation to all the other Israelite tales.

Most likely the five “sinful” cities of Genesis fame met their destruction in a later time period.  Using the traditional dating set for the Noah flood, archeological science has determined that the so-called “Cities of the Plain” in the Valley of Siddim could have existed only in a five hundred year span between 2800 to 2300 BCE.  It is verifiable that there were towns along the shore of the Dead Sea in this timeframe, and they were established for the collection of and trade in quantities of asphalt that was abundant in these surroundings.  Asphalt was highly prized in many ancient cultures as waterproofing material for boats, roofing and mortaring stone works.

Global disruptions and unusual celestial activities were still occurring and being recorded in this 500-year timeframe.  It should be noted that the Dead Sea region where the five “cities” were situated was, and still is, prone to earthquake activity.  The “wickedness” of these towns actually lay beneath the sandy soil upon which they had been built.  The sandy soil would weaken in what is called liquefaction when subjected to severe earthquake pressure.  In an earthquake of magnitude six or more, the buildings in the city would have sunk into the ooze by at least three feet, and a considerable expanse could have flowed into the sea.

The locale of this biblical tale was, throughout the 2000s BCE, an active asphalt production area, and pockets of methane gas trapped beneath the surface would have burst into devastating firestorms when flying sparks ignited them.  Thus the holy account  says, “…and lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.” (Genesis 19:28)  Within twenty minutes the stricken cities could have vanished from the face of the Earth.  It was too ripe of a legend not to use when the priests were fabricating their Israelite history.

With this dramatic backdrop the character of Lot personifies the Life Principle which moves in transitional stages of manifestation toward matter development.  This meaning is also supported in Genesis 19:29 where it says that Lot was “…sent out of the midst of the overthrow, when he (god) overthrew the cities in which Lot dwelt.”  To dwell in five cities would mean constant movement.  In this subplot of the Abraham character, the five cities therefore represent nuclear involvement which gives rise to chemical elements—the catalyst for all life force and mental activity.  It is from these elements that there is generated a vast horde of different compounds which are necessary for life.  And so the story continues with Lot fleeing to a cave situated above Zoar; in myths caves traditionally represent pre-physical conditions (the virginal void), and there, ardent for life, Lot is made drunk (just as was Noah when he attained matter).  Abraham’s nephew then has an incestuous relationship with his two daughters (representing energy substance), who subsequently bore sons, one named Moab and the other named Benammi.  Thus an extended plotline is provided to build upon later, and Lot, his daughters and their claim to legitimate history abruptly disappear from the stage.

    I’m sorry, but Venus does orbit in the same direction as the rest of the planets. Go to a planetarium or do a Google search on it. Statements like this cast doubts about the quality and accuracy of the research you did in preparing this entire article.

    I am not disputing the fact that there have been many near extinction level events in the Earth’s past, but you need to be careful to review your data and facts.

    An interesting read and there are several incidents, in the time frames of interest, here that indicate that there were several periods where the climate and weather of vast areas of the earth were outside of normal range. Climate is what we expect, but meteorite strikes, volcanism and several other factor are always with us and undoubtedly explain many of the variations in normal climate throughout the Bible.

      Sorry, but you better go look again. Most of the planets, the Earth included, spin on their axes in the same direction—counterclockwise as viewed from the north. But Venus spins CLOCKwise.
