Scientists are researching the Dead Sea


The national religious site ARUTZ 7 brings an interesting article: Israeli scientists are drilling a 1200 meter deep hole into the Dead Sea in order to find out about the history of the lake. When we look at the Torah, we should already know about the history, as it tells us in the Parashot Lech Lecha and Vayera. 

In the days when Avraham fought the Kings who had kidnapped his nephew Lot, the Dead Sea didn't even exist. On the contrary, in the days of the war against the Kings and the wealth of Sodom and Gomorrha, the Dead Sea used to be a fruitful valley. Only after the destruction of Sodom, the valley turned into a salty sea as we know it today. 

I am excited to see whether the Torah will be proven true once again.
