Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah - God, Aliens, Natural Causes?

The infamous region of Sodom and Gomorrah, often referred to as the "sin cities," is quite popular amid the holy folks, myth and storytellers, and moral seekers of divine justice.
However, some people doubt that this place even existed, even though the location of this area can be found and proven to exist, but that's not the point or the question here...

First of all, I'm not a biblical scholar by no means; in fact, when I do bring religion up, I'm usually ranting about some 'holier than thou' aspect that I dislike or perhaps my disdain for organized religions in general. I'm not an atheist nor do I cohere to a certain code of conduct or a particular set of dogma dung. But when it comes to Sodom and Gomorrah, these supposed sin cities sound like the way our civilization is becoming in America and throughout the globe. Ya know, traits such as: decadent, lazy gluts, deceitful, disrespectful, irresponsible, spoiled, sexually unchaste, and overall just a bunch of wasteful bipeds who are callous, brainless pieces of trash without a care in the world. Now, I know, this doesn't apply to a lot of people, but just generalizing the momentum that seems to be moving forward in the world today, but hey, maybe things will change for the better - as time marches on (boom!).

Anyway, assuming it did happen, the primary question here is: Who is responsible for the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah? Was it the almighty God? Was it Aliens from another planet or world? Was the destruction of these cities simply due to the impact of a big asteroid or other natural causes that stem from rational thinking?

Hell, I don't know, I wasn't there... But I will leave this post open for comments, and I will provide a couple resources below.
The Bible mentions that it was God casting wrath upon Sodom and Gomorrah... English Version; Genesis, Chapter 19, Verse 23 - 29: "The sun was rising when Lot reached Zoar. Suddenly the Lord rained burning sulfur on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and destroyed them and the whole valley, along with all the people there and everything that grew on the land. But Lot's wife looked back and was turned into a pillar of salt. Early the next morning Abraham hurried to the place where he had stood in the presence of the Lord. He looked down at Sodom and Gomorrah and the whole valley and saw smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a huge furnace. But when God destroyed the cities of the valley where Lot was living, he kept Abraham in mind and allowed Lot to escape to safety." That was the Bible's version of the destruction.

If you'd like to read more about this subject in a biblical sense, you can start with a page called "Is there any evidence for the Biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah's destruction by fire and brimstone (sulfur)?" You can find it here: http://christiananswers.net/q-abr/abr-a007.html

Now, what about those pesky little aliens, often referred to as "angels" and/or "demons" by many religious people? Well, one can speculate that the destruction of those cities was not from God, but from a nuclear attack, which some will still call "the work of god." If that is the case, maybe the destruction was from aliens acting as violent angels or playful demons, or maybe it was just some fed up extraterrestrials that felt like testing their weapons of mass destruction. Ha-ha! Either way, if you'd like to read about the Sin Cities of Sodom and Gomorrah in an alien sense, visit: www.perpendicularity.org/sodom-gomorrah.html

If you're more inclined to finding a rational explanation via natural causes, you probably won't need any resource links to find possible causes for the destruction of these cities, and you will gladly do your own cyber searches. But for anyone who wants to drop down their 2 cents worth about this subject, whether it is about God, aliens, asteroids, sin cities, and so on, feel free.

Personally, I don't have a clue. We've been destroying and blowing each other up for so long now, who in the hell knows?

Okay, it is time to confess! Who destroyed these damn cities???

  1. My main problem is the biblical account were Lot's wife is turned to salt. As far as I know only Got, or maybe some highly evolved being is capable of this. Is there some misinterpretation of the word salt here? Is there some chemical reaction that could have done this similar to the bodies, or ashes that ware once bodies, in Pompeii?

  2. Hi, Doogy! Thanks for commenting...
    Lot's wife was petrified, just as the victims of intense radiation in Hiroshima & Nagasaki became petrified. If you'd like to read more about it, follow the link I provided in the post, here: http://www.perpendicularity.org/sodom-gomorrah.html
