I'm not trying to prove something exists. The proof is in the fact that the cities were destroyed and that there is in fact a location of a DEAD Sea in an area that was once fertile.<quoted text>
False. I have no need to prove a negative. It is up to the person claiming that something exists to prove, using readily verifiable and tangible, non-ontological evidence that it does indeed exist or did exist. The Bible proves nothing.
It is you that has asked me to "prove a negative" by asking for evidence of artifacts from cities God destroyed. I'm not claiming they exist. My claim is that if God destroyed it, it wont be found. And, my claim is that you will not find writings from any time B.C. or in the first century questioning whether or not those cities existed.
