On 29 June. 3123 B.C. dawned like any other day in the fertile plain of the Jordan River. The people of Sodom and the neighboring cities Gomorrah, Admah, Zoar and Zeboyim, initiated its activities on that summer day than anticipated splendid, despite the constant earthquakes that were happening for weeks.
Sodomites and their neighbors, but did not know the reason, were accustomed to little earthquakes, produced by a fault line that passes over the Jordan River. Under the porous ground on which settled the cities, result of the flora and fauna existent thousand years ago, had been stored a large quantity of explosive materials such as natural gas, asphalt and sulfur. Suddenly the birds began to fly, the flocks to show restless and little earthquakes gave way to an earthquake measuring over 6 on the Richter scale.The land sank and surfaced explosive materials and set fire to contact the household and, some say, with the fall of fragments of a meteorite that crashed into the Alps. Sodom and the other cities were completely destroyed and covered with a heavy residue of ash which can still find 5000 years later.
Lack of geologists at the time made him seek the causes of that destructive event in a divine punishment for the customs of the sodomites and so began the legend. The punishment of god to the people of Sodom, as was the universal deluge to humanity, was part of the compendium of exemplary legends which subsequently led to the scriptures.
The Sodomites and their neighbors from Gomorrah, in addition to suffering combustion and spray themselves and their cities, have been stigmatized by the simplistic interpretations and consecutive poor translations of the Bible. Currently the reading could be, god killed sodomites by faggots, as some think of divine punishment of HIV or tsunami by the nude beaches, but in reality the relationship of the Sodomites with homosexuality is only the fruit of the interpretations that the translators have made of the biblical texts. In fact not until the 11th century appears the word "sodomy" in the Liber Gommorrhianus Damianus of benedictine monk Petrus Damianus, for which the word included all those sexual activities that were not used for reproduction not only sexual contact between men.
Sodom was not what they say, nor us the sodomites. Change our minds.
I Y Sodom. Do you?
