Garden of Eden
And from what 9jacutie posted, the whole surrounding is now in the hand of Islam. Why that is my observation, in reality there is no Garden of Eden anywhere. It never was on the earth that Adam was created, his mate was created from his rib (cloning), and the disobedience to commandment of God about not even coming near the tree.
It was not on this earth that Satan in Islam, deceived them, since he had became there enemy, anyway to the tree. All of the above were in heaven, where thery were created, then told to enter paradise. It was in Paradise the deceiving took place. Then they were sent out of the garden, made to descended, body and soul to earth. They might have landed in different places. One in around Iran/Iraq, the other somewhere else. But they were inspired to long for each other, as mates. So they looked, searched and they met at a place called Arafat in Makka. Arafat means we found, or meet, or see.
based on biblical geographica discription ; River Tigris and River Uphrates. It suggests the location is somewhere arround Iraq. But The garden surely would no longer be there now . Firstly if you know how much God protected the content in the garden especially the tree of life.
So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
If man could not re enter the garden that time, definately if it still exists ,it would be hidden from man's reach. secondly , over the years, many things have taken place. Like the flood of noah that covered the entire earth , wars etc .
The only valuable thing in the garden left was the Tree of life, which is no longer necessary any longer. Jesus has brought us life, and we no longer need the tree. All a man needs now is to be saved and recieve eternal life.
The possible location of the Garden of Eden has been traced to one suburb in Iran. I watched the whole unfolding footage on Discovery channel a few years ago.
