I’ve been saying that Turkey has become a Islamic fundamentalist hell hole for some time now, how appropriate the recent news.
Pluto’s Gate Has Been Found In Turkey
The archeologist who once claimed to have found the tomb of one of Jesus’ 12 disciples is now saying he has discovered what many once considered the Gates of Hell in southwestern Turkey.
This place was once known as “Pluto’s Gate,” a shrine to the gods of the underworld. In addition to being associated with the underworld, Pluto’s Gate was also known for spewing out toxic fumes that could kill animals and cause humans to hallucinate and see visions.
Greek geographer Strabo once said of this place: “This space is full of a vapor so misty and dense that one can scarcely see the ground. Any animal that passes inside meets instant death. I threw in sparrows and they immediately breathed their last and fell.”
This finding was announced last month in an Italian archeology conference held in Istanbul, Turkey.
Francesco D’Andria, professor of classic archaeology at the University of Salento, led this team.
According to Discovery News, this site was suspected to be near the historic Phrygian City of Hierapolis, near what is now known as Pamukkale. The city was known for its thermal springs, which many believed had healing powers. It was these springs that led D’Andria to find Pluto’s Gate.
