Structures Under Dead Sea

It is apparent that there may exist artificial constructs beneath the waters of the Dead Sea. Many features on the anamolies are quite unusual in their placement and suggest an artificial origin that may in fact be related to the Biblical accounts of the story of the destruction of the cities Sodom and Gomorrah.

More exploration and excavation are necessary to come to any firm conclusions, but it is hoped that by revealing these features, more interest in examining these areas by professional archaeologists will be stimulated and the use of Satellite image analysis for archaeological discovery will be seriously utilized.

Deep, great finds!!

The wonders of remote imaging continues to increase at a geometric rate.

I do agree with the overall assessment, this is indicative of something artificial. The fact that features on shore match up with features under the water could possibly indicate a bridge or something, although this would likely be much to large for the technology at the time. This could be a road or something (I believe the Dead Sea area underwent subsidence, and was lowered below sea level, although there is the train of thought that the cities were destroyed by nuclear or some similar weapon and are now at the bottom of a basin shaped blast crater).

Don't say tghe tech of the time wasnt good enough, did you already forget about Stonehenge and the Pyramids?
Dragon you of all people should believe we lost knowledge.

Oh believe me, I do!

But, there is a vast difference in engineering for a solid rock object such as the Pyramids, and a suspension bridge. This structure would obviously have to be a suspension bridge, since there are no intervening stanchion points between the 2 objects in line. Granted, there is not a scale, but I would estimate that distance to be near a mile... We only recently have been able to bridge such a distance with a suspension bridge.

You’ll find a long history of speculation that Sodom and Gomorrah did indeed perish beneath the Dead Sea.
There’s little clear help from the Bible. To be sure, there are not only numerous references in Genesis; but frequent references - Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Jeremiah: just about anything bemoaning the wicked ways of the Israelites and Hebrews.
And in the New Testament, too: Gospels, Epistles right up to Revelation.
But it’s plain that all later references merely echo Genesis and the common metaphor of the Cities of the Plain as evidence that the Lord will destroy the sinful: usually a warning to a “lapsed” Jerusalem.
Typical, would be
euteronomy 29 “the whole land thereof [is] brimstone, and salt, [and] burning,”, or in Zephaniah:“the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation”
Which conveys the imagery of a wasteland with saltpits; but doesn’t really place the cities anywhere in particular.
But nothing contradicts the notion: so it can be a rewarding search.

There's an entirely unscholarly take on the whole area and its relationship to eschatology here:

And -while the site is on the frontier of loony-land, there are some nice "perhaps?" satellite piccies here.

Bear in mind cyber-chums that (a) the Dead Sea is a very important tourist area ( so the Loch Ness syndrome applies) and that almost everything is -objectively -speculation, as of now.
