be familiar with the whole story of a topic before jumping to conclusions. Thats what leads to consipracy theory B.S. You don't think that a higher
being could use an asteroid? Wow! So unless its some giant glowing hand it wasn't god or at least a higher civilization posing as gods.
I'll jump to the conclusion that Lot was on the way to visit parents or simply going on holiday. After the destruction of S&G he was very pleased to
tell his story and some holier-than-thou-men grabbed the story - ran with it - and eventually used it to threaten whom they percieved as sinners.
A bit like the dude who keeps reserving tickets on planes and then cancel them. Just to be able to sell his story to the papers about how he neasrly
got killed and that a promonition kept him from boarding the plane.
Even without speculating we only have to go to the history books and look at the case of Galileo Galilei who was forced by the church to renounce his
idea (actually Kopernicus' idea) that the earth circled the sun.
The good pope John Paul II was forced to admit that the church was wrong in doing so. It took them 13 years of scutiny to determine GG was right.
Back to speculation: Perhaps the christian church is wrong about other things as well? Perhaps even about the existence of a God? Maybe thats why they
want us to believe without proof?
And to think that back in those days they had burning - talking - bushes, pillars of light, booming voices from the sky.
What have we got? A load of different interpretations.
Thou shalt not kill - and then we have chaplans blessing soldiers before they go on killing sprees.
EDIT: The soldiers - not the chaplans
And to add my belief in S&G.
I am also with the faction who believe it was asteroid fragments or some similar event.
