True revelations of what led to the formation of the dead sea

What led to its formation?

Ages ago, a saltwater lagoon was connected to the Mediterranean Sea. The movement of the African and Arabian tectonic plates shifted the land between the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean rose. This cut-off the ocean water supply for sea.

You can expect not to find birds, fish or plants in and around the Dead Sea due to its inhospitable cobalt-blue waters, 1412 ft below sea level.

However researchers like Taylor Stoop oppose the whole concept of calling it dead sea, he states that it is wrong because there is microorganisms in that water so no it cannot be considered a “Dead Sea” anymore. It’s more like “Alive Sea” unless the microorganisms somehow left the water and went somewhere else.

no, quite the opposite! the water is very healing. it’s incredible for your skin, hair, and joints. it’s really fun to float in & swimming is effortless bc the water is so dense from the salt that you just float. the mud near its shores is also incredibly healing.

He says According to Islamic and biblical traditions, the Dead Sea is the site of the ancient city of Sodom, home of the Prophet Lut (Lot). The Quran describes the people of Sodom as ignorant, wicked evildoers who rejected God's call to righteousness.
