Tell el Hammeh, West Bank | Two 5,000-year old male skeletons unearthed near the city of Tell el Hammeh, in the southern Jordan river valley, could possibly be the world’s oldest known homosexuals in human history.
The ruins that are under excavation by a team of researchers of the University of Tel Aviv believe the ruins are the remnants of the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, two cities allegedly destroyed by God’s Divine wrath because of the “wickedness and obscure practices” of its population.
The discovery was greeted with much enthusiasm by the team of researchers that hope other similar finds could prove “once and for all” that the ruins are in fact those of the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
The professor of archeology was clearly enthused by the discovery.
“I have made my life’s work to discover the location of Sodom and Gomorrah and this could ultimately be the proof I have been looking for all this time” explained the scientist, visibly emotional.
“Sodom and Gomorrah who are reputed for their homosexual sexual practices, and the reason the Bible claims the cities were destroyed, are an important window to understand the culture of the region at that time” he told local reporters.
“Extremely high levels of radioactivity found at the site also denote a major catastrophic event occurred in the region, at levels we cannot explain for the moment, but which are consistent with the biblical account of the destruction of the cities” he admitted.
In the Bible, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed with brimstone and fire from the LORD because “the men of Sodom [were] wicked and sinners” and “because their sin is very grievous”, a behavior often attributed to the practice of homosexuality by a majority of biblical scholars.
