In a moment, those living in the old towns and farm buildings north of the Dead Sea were condemned by a superheated cosmic blast from heaven that left the destruction of nearly 200 square kilometers, according to new archaeological evidence. 19659002] During last month’s annual US Schools for Oriental Research Meeting, Phillip J. Silvia presented a documentary showing that the earth’s evidence and analysis suggest that a meteor was responsible for the destruction of both the land and all human settlements in the region almost 3 700 years ago .

According to the newspaper, archaeological data collected collected a pattern for an explosive event with high heat.

This astronaut photo taken from the International Space Station while it is located across China (about 400 kilometers northwest of Beijing) gives the unusual perspective of watching a meteor as it passes through the atmosphere. The picture was taken August 13, 2011 during Perseid Meteor Shower, which occurs every August.

According to the scientists, a cosmic air burst due to a low altitude meteor is the only natural force that could have caused the unique destructive properties found in both the earth’s, the melting stone and many of the ceramic samples collected at the site.

The event in the Middle East was so powerful that “not only [wiped] constituted 100 percent of [cities] and cities,” but also removed the land of fertile farmland and crushed the landscape with the superhered saline from the Dead Sea in subsequent shockwave, according to the paper abstract.

Silvia is director of scientific analysis at Jordan’s major electric hammam excavation project.

“The physical evidence of Tall el-Hammam and neighboring places shows signs of a very destructive brain-shaking and thermal event,” according to the authors.

“Ash samples collected from Tall el-Hammam contain evidence of soil destruction and underground impurities with Dead Sea Salt which would have prevented crop cultivation for many centuries after the event.” [19659002] The settlements did not return to agriculture for nearly 600-700 years after the destructive event, the paper reported.

In addition to field evidence, there were other archaeological indicators of a destructive thermal event, including zirconium crystals found within touchscreens that had turned to glass.

The researchers found “bubbles inside melting zirconium crystals in the glass indicating the boiling of the crystal” at over 4000 degrees Celsius or 7.232 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the paper, allowing the intense heat lasting only a short while and leaving ceramic pieces underneath the unaffected by the heat.

But no craters have been found near the site, but the chance of meteor exploding across the ground is possible. According to the paper, the air burst occurred above the ground about 1 kilometer in height.

Incidents such as the Siberian Tunguska event 1908, which remain mysterious for this day, have also been attributed to a meteoric airburst. The event in Siberia, which planted a large forest area in an explosive, thermal and brainwashing event, has stirred speculation for an entire century.

“Explosion near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River on June 30, 1908 plated about 500,000 hectares (2,000 square kilometers) Siberian forest,” according to Space.com.

“Scientists estimated that the Tunguska explosion could have been approximately as strong as 10 megatons to 20 megatons TNT – 1000 times more powerful than the atomic bomb released at Hiroshima,” reported Space.com.

“Signature markers for an air burst incident include high levels of platinum, typically 600 percent above normal background levels and a high platinum palladium ratio,” reported Silvia and the research team, adding similar evidence to Tall el Hammam.
