The five cities of the plain have been located and the evidence is staggering. For the first time in modern
history we have found round balls of brimstone, or nearly pure sulfur, embedded in an ashen area near the Dead Sea, which show clear signs
of having once been ancient building structures!

Josephus Saw the Cities -- Why Can't We?
The cities were located in the plain, so they should not be
located in the low area now covered by the Dead Sea. These cities were
well known in the first century, as Josephus said, "The traces or
shadows of the five cities are still to be seen." If Josephus
could see them, then we should be able to see them also. The water level of
the Dead Sea has fallen since the time of Josephus, so the areas Josephus saw
in his day are still visible today.
Biblical Warning For All
The cities of the plain were destroyed as a warning for all that
this same event will happen again one day to the wicked. One would think
God is capable of preserving this ancient lesson for us to see and to learn from.
"Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and
Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens" Genesis 19:24.
"Turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to
destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live
ungodly" II Peter 2:6. (The word for "example"
means an exhibit for warning.)
Analysis of the Brimstone
These sulfur balls are mostly golf ball sized,
and some have burn marks all around them! Webster's Dictionary says that
"brimstone" = sulfur. Accordingly, we have found the absolute proof that
we have finally located Sodom and Gomorrah, the cities of the plain!
Above at left is brimstone with a burned, hardened shell that
has the unburned sulfur inside, and next to it is brimstone without a burned
shell. The photo at right is a shell or capsule with unburned sulfur
inside. Tiny crystals are on its surface which were formed when the sulfur
was burning and was in a liquid state, then it burned out.
Above: Located on the side of a ziggurat, this brimstone in a shell is opened to reveal the unburned sulfur
Each of the cities of the plain contain evidence
of brimstone which God rained down upon the cities to destroy them. The
brimstone is composed of 96-98 percent sulfur, with trace amounts of magnesium
which create an extremely high temperature burn.
This is the only place on earth where you can find 96 percent pure monoclinic sulfur in a round ball.
This brimstone is NOT from any type of geo-thermal activity as there is no
evidence of such in the area, and geo-thermal sulfur nodules are only 40 percent pure sulfur
and are of the rhombic type.

Analysis of the Ash
God rained down upon these cities was so hot that
it burned the limestone blocks that were used in the construction of the cities.
The ash there today is composed of Calcium
Sulfate and Calcium Carbonate which are by-products of the limestone and
Everything in these cities burned and turned into
ash, including the buildings themselves as the Bible says that the cities were
to be destroyed also. The Bible told us that God rained down "fire
and brimstone" When God rains down fire, it is a consuming fire, just like
the time of Elijah when God sent down fire to destroy the stone altar, the
limestone buildings here were totally destroyed and turned into ash.
Above: The extremely high burning temperatures created a multi-shaded
layering of ash that was formed by thermal ionization, caused by electrons
repelling and attracting, creating a swirling effect in the remains.

Cities Visible in Satellite Photos
The cities are almost entirely turned into white
ash, and can be seen in the satellite photographs below.
Notice each of the cities stand out from the
surrounding terrain because of the white ash contained within them. The city
of Zoar was a "little one" or a newly built city that was
square. As cities grew or expanded they quickly lost this square shape.
indicates the five cities formed the Canaanite border, thus the could not have
been grouped together at the south end of the Dead Sea as popularly
believed. They form a north-south line along the Jordan/Dead Sea
area. Gomorrah is located at the base of Masada, and in 1998, additional
formations were found in Jordan on the opposite of the Dead Sea from Gomorrah in
the Lisan Peninsula,
including a large cemetery area containing 1,000,000 graves.
The same structures as found on the Israeli side were also found on the
Jordanian side - ash, brimstone and even ceramic tile.

Man-made formations are found in the cities, including
ziggurats, sphinxes, windows, arched doorways and walls resembling double
Canaanite city walls.

Unique shapes are visible in the cities that are not found in
nature, including sphinx shapes like the ones below.
Above: This sphinx formation on a raised platform is about 40 feet long and was
made of a different whiter material than the surrounding platform. It may
have been a worship figure or god and was made of a special material. Masada
Above: Another sphinx shape sits at the edge of the
city. They thought it would protect them, but it too
was consumed in the destruction of fire and brimstone.
The extreme heat caused unusual specimens that can be found in the
cities, including the creation of sulfur crystals. Below are photos of a
large slab of crystals found by our Ark Discovery Team.
Above: The top layer is a solid slab of sulfur crystals
created by a complete layer of
brimstone underneath that was burning, then turned to a liquid, then cooled down
leaving this layer of crystals. Approximately six feet long.
Above: Here we can see the brimstone underneath the
crystals that are on top.
Above: another shot of the brimstone underneath and the
crystals on top
Above: In another area, we found sulfur crystals which
are a remnant of the consumed brimstone.
Above: two feet in diameter clump of crystals.
Another group was found later when I
broke open a large clump "live" on video.
Above: more crystals resulting from the sulphur burning,
turning to liquid, and cooling into crystals
More evidence of the extreme heat was found.
Above: this specimen shows signs of having been melted,
with the upper portion
bubbling and the lower section pooled into a solid.

bone, with the marrow in the middle. This looks similar to the specimens found
by Dr. Lennart Moller, author of The Exodus Case
A spear head and a cache of burned gold which is now gold salts,
burned bones, jars, and tile have also been found by others who have visited the
