- Wonders of Creation - 15/15 -


Jordan, described as having been "well-watered everywhere, as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt." One part of it, called the Vale of Siddim, was full of slime-pits--the only indications of volcanic action. When the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, which stood in the plain, were destroyed, the Lord, it is said, rained upon them fire and brimstone from heaven; but while these fell upon the cities from the atmosphere, it appears that they must have primarily been discharged from the earth; for "the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace." The phenomena, therefore, most likely resembled, in the first instance, those of Jorullo; but the catastrophe seems to have ended like the last great eruption of the volcano in Timor--the whole of the plain having been ingulfed and replaced by the salt lake, whose depressed level so clearly indicates the nature of its origin.
