Chemical Analysis

With a molecular frequency radar generator, Ron found gold salts, the product of combustion of vaporised gold.

Embedded in the ash are the remnants of brimstone.

Samples of the material were taken and tested. The samples proved to be pure ash, composed of calcium carbonate and calcium sulphate. Limestone is the main stone found in this area, and these two chemicals are the expected products of combustion of limestone after being burned with sulphur.

The ash is in very fine layers, which is consistent with materials burned at very high temperatures. Brimstone burns at 5,000 - 6,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and at this temperature there is "thermal ionization" which causes the layering effect.

This sulphur is unique

A sceptic might question why the residual ash from the cities has not completely eroded away after 3,900 years, since that is the approximate time that has elapsed since the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Research has shown that limestone burned with sulphur leaves a remaining ash that is actually heavier than the original material.

Embedded in these pure ashen remains are sulphur balls. In the Bible these are described as brimstone, in Genesis 19:24-25, "Then the LORD rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the LORD out of the heavens. So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground." NKJV

It’s WHITE colour indicates it has been COOKED

Sulphur is usually found in nature in the crystalline form, and is usually 40 - 60% sulphur. Sulphur is usually only found near volcanoes, sulfide ore mineral veins, or by sedimentary rocks associated with anhydrite, gypsum, limestone and salt domes.

The sulphur found at this site is unique. It is found as round, white balls, about the size of a golf ball. The sulphur is not in the normal crystalline form, but has the consistency of compact powder.

This Brimstone burns when you put a match to it

When analysed at the Galbraith laboratories, Knoxville, Tennessee, USA, it was found that these sulphur balls are 95-98% pure sulphur. The impurities in the sulphur are metals that would add to the heat given off. These sulphur balls burn at 5,000-6,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The Galbraith Laboratories said that a BTU test could not be done as it would damage their stainless steel testing chamber!

The brown burn ring - click to view larger image

The brown burn ring can be clearly seen around the sulphur

These sulphur balls must have been burning at some time in the past, because of the presence of brown burn rings around them. This is a sulphur compound formed when molten sulphur cools very quickly, and is evidence that these sulphur balls were once on fire.

These cities are indeed unique. Other cities that have been destroyed by fire or by volcanoes, like Pompeii, have a layer of ash on top, but under that is the original material. Here, however, we see entire cities completely turned to ash, exactly as the Bible describes.
