Pretty neat little find.  I was skeptical at first because of April Fools and whatnot, but the second link assures its authenticity.

Yeah, I dunno.  I mean it makes sense to me why it would have been written in the bible the way it was.  They didn't understand such things, so to them I'm sure it did seem like god was like "EAT THIS MUTHAFUCKAS!"

Not to say it couldnt have been god, I just think science has a better track record :P

Notice how in the University article nowhere is Sodom and Gomorrah mentioned.  It places the impact to have been in Europe towards the Alps. Obviously too far north.  Fox News are famous for sensationalizing stories and connected the fact that the stone was probably made by a Sumerian astronomer off in the general time period, so that it must be the two famed Biblical cities.  But as a Christian, I'm delighted in knowing the impact of an asteroid didn't destroy those cities.  Because that would be too tiny.

Just imagine the clouds opening up in the sky and a gigantic voice for all to hear says, "I am the Lord God of Israel.  I am the Uncreated.  For your crimes you must pay ....SHOOP DA WHOOP!!!!!"

Total annihilation as fire and lazors rains down from the sky, but off in the distance Lot and his family are escaping.

Lot's wife ever unfaithful looks back at the awesome destruction: "WTF!?" She is immediately turned into a pillar of salt.

Lot: "Let's just get the $%@& outta here!"
Lot's daughters hurriedly agree with their father in an overtly sexual tone, which in no way signified the seduction and violent humping later that night.  Which was done with cheap Mexican beer.

I'm really unsure at this point.  Gross misinterpretation or not of mine, my outlandish retelling of the famous story in Genesis still stands.
