What Really Happened
At Sodom And
By James Donahue
In the Bible story, Abraham
left Chaldea for the Promised Land and his nephew Lot went with him. On their way both men
became so encumbered with livestock that the land would not support them both. So they parted ways. Abraham went to Canaan
and Lot went into the Jordan Valley and
settled in the City of Sodom along the Dead Sea.
According to the Bible
account, this was a mistake on Lot’s part, since Sodom
was a wicked place where the people practiced sexual perversion. The name sodomy is derived from the name of that place, although
there is no historical proof that this sexual act was practiced any more heavily there than anywhere else in the world.
The angel that declared
itself Yahweh, or god of the Hebrews, declared that it was abhorred by the fact that men were having sex with men, unmarried
women were having sexual relations with each other and with men, and that Sodom
was therefore a wicked place that must be destroyed.
This story has remained
to this day a root of the twisted and perverted thought processes of Christians about sex. There is a programmed fear against
free sensual expression that forces people of that faith into a form of insanity. Release is sometimes found through such
perversions as pedophilia, rape and serial killings of homosexuals, prostitutes and often just young men and women selected
As the Bible story is
told, two angels are sent to Lot’s house in Sodom to persuade Lot
and his family to flee, because the city is about to be destroyed by hail and brimstone from heaven. To emphasize the wicked
ways of the people even further, the story continues to report that the men of the city overwhelmed Lot’s
house in their frenzy to have sexual relations with the angels. The angels use magic powers to blind their assailants and
everybody escapes this terrible fate of sexual contact with a frenzied mob.
As they make their flight
to the small community of Zoar, the judgment falls upon the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Lot’s wife paused and
looked back, supposedly remembering the good sex she had there, and was blasted into a pillar of salt.
“And Abraham gat
up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord: And he looked toward Sodom
and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld,
and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.”
When it was over, Lot didn’t feel safe even in Zoar, so he moved his family into a cave in the highlands. Or so
the story is told.
Was this really a judgment
from some almighty force on high, or was something else going on here?
Remember in our examination
of Abram, the first name Abraham used, when he left Ur? We
examined the Crowley Troth card that depicts Abram dressed in armor and carrying a strange bright object in his hands as he
rides a chariot from Ur.
Aaron C. Donahue said
that object in Abram’s arms was the real Ark of the Covenant, a container holding the secret to nuclear power. It was
probably raw plutonium, and so radioactive that the container was encased in lead and iron. Abram was wearing a protective
covering to shield himself against radioactive poisoning.
Note to that there was
a war going on in the area of Sodom and Gomorrah at the time
Lot and his family settled there. Lot arrives in Sodom
in Chapter 14, and the destruction of the cities is described in Chapter 19. In between is found the story of Abram’s
frustration with a fertile wife, his infidelity with Hagar that resulted in the birth of Ishmael, then Sari’s pregnancy
that results in the birth of Isaac. Thus the two warring bloodlines of the Hebrew and Palestinian people are established.
While all of this is
going on in Abraham’s life, the tribes of the Jordan Valley are fighting. This war continues for years. Then in Chapter 14 we read that the
kings of Sodom and Gomorrah,
plus the kings of Admah, Zeboiim and Bela joined in battle against the other forces at Siddim. The battle apparently did not
go well for the armies of the valley because they ended up fleeing to a hideout in a mountain and Lot
was captured and held prisoner by the enemy as a Sodomite.
There followed a campaign
by Abraham to rescue Lot. He swooped down upon the camp with his own army and brought Lot and his entire family out to safety.
Lot was living back in
Sodom when the final attack came that left the city and all
of the territory a nuclear waste from that time on. Notice that Lot’s wife didn’t
get away and was consumed by the blast. She was not turned to salt, but to ash. Abraham, from a safe distance away, gazed
upon the area of Sodom and Gomorrah
and saw that “smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.” Remember that pictures of nuclear explosions
look like this. The blast shot straight upward in a pillar, then mushroomed out in a vast cloud overhead.
The Bible story states
that Lot and his family survived the attack in the small community of Zoar. But he quickly
left there and moved into a cave. From the archaeological evidence uncovered, Zoar did not escape the destruction. Thus if
Lot survived, he went directly to the care and did not stop in Zoar.
This story was centered
at the southern end of the barren Dead Sea, by a mountain known as Mount. Sodom. Archaeologists, with the help of satellite mapping, located geometric square and rectangular
shapes not only at Sodom and Gomorrah, but at three other cities in the area that were destroyed by the same blast.
They were identified as Admah, Zeboim and Zoar (also known as Bela). All were located along the edge of the Dead
Sea. All were the places involved in the battle described in Genesis, Chapter 14.
Digs in each of these
areas has produced the telltale signs of ash and sulfur balls. The foundations of the houses and buildings show that they
were once substantial in size. This indicates that the people were advanced in culture. Historian Laurence Gardner notes
that based on writings from the Nag Hammadi, or copies of much older Greek works, there can be found evidence that the cities
of Sodom and Gomorrah were
not only advanced, but known as places of great wisdom and learning.
These were not primitive
warfaring cultures, but rather people of learning and the arts. So how did such a terrible thing happen to them? One writer
suggested that they simply got on the wrong side of a much larger conflict between two regions. They were caught in the middle
and were bombed into oblivion.
The destruction in these
cities went beyond even the damage a volcano might cause. While volcanic ash will burn and bury a city, it can leave stone
structures intact as with the City of Pompeii, under Mt.
Everything in Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zeboim and Zoar
was turned to ash. Only the foundations of the buildings remain. In one of the cities was found the shape of a mound which
may have been a ziggurat, common among the cities of ancient Sumer.
According to research
by writer Zecharia Sitchin, the written record indicates that the war was between
Enki and Enlil, sons of the Sumerian god, Anu, who battled for supremacy in about 2000 BC. Enlil’s son Marduk was apparently the one that
used a nuclear weapon to destroy the five cities as well as the Sumerian Civilization, which was downwind of the radioactive
If you recall, Marduk
was the name of the king of Babylon and the bastard son of
the first world emperor, identified in the Bible as Nimrod. Can it be that Nimrod's offspring and Enlil are the same
What tangled webs we
weave as we dig through the corrupted records of ancient history.
