Archeologists claim new location for Sodom and Gomorrah
An international excavation team of archeologists led by Dr. Steven Collins, an expert on Biblical archeology from US Trinity Southwestern University, have claimed finding new evidence proving that the Biblical sites of Sodom and Gomorrah - two cities cited in Bible as "destroyed by God for their sins"- were located in Jordan's Tall al-Hammam in north of the Dead Sea, rather than attributed location in the south of the Dead Sea.
One of the archeologists in the excavation team said, "One of the interesting things about Tall al-Hammam is what we called a MB gap, that is the period of time between the Middle Bronze Age and Iron Age, because in normal locations like this, you have occupations one right on top of the other, but here, something very unique, something very significant took place in the Middle Bronze Age.
The city was destroyed by an event that was so dramatic that it scared everybody...

Yeah (lauging and groaning). I almost called "the mountans" San Jose, since that's where Lot's daughters got him drunk and seduced him (if I remember correctly!).
Thankfully even this was all under God's control, from which we got the Moabites, Ruth, David, and the body prepared for Christ (Heb 10:5).

Thanks. San Jose being Zoar, that's funny. But, if it is anything like the biblical Zoar, it won't provide much relief. Lot wasn't there long before he realized he needed to go to where the Lord told him go to at the beginning - the mountain.
