And here is the answer in the Bible

"Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished" -- 2 Peter 3:6

This explains how Garden of Eden was destroyed by the global Flood, and so its actual location under piles of sediment can never be known.

B.I.B.L.E. = [b]B[/b]asic [b]I[/b]nstructions [b]B[/b]efore [b]L[/b]eaving [b]E[/b]arth

You really intend to find the answer from a fellow man?? I think you should try and discover it yourself.

Then it's remnants should be at the bottom of the seas or oceans. . . . or simply buried beneath piles of sediments.

"In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.  And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights." -- Genesis 7:11,12

The flood was cataclysmic in the sense that it did not only rain "cats and dogs" but "all the fountains of the great deep were broken up"  With this in mind you will have an idea of the magnitude of Noah's flood and the sediments it left behind.  Verse 24 said that it took 150 days for the waters to abate.

Is this scientific? That 40 days rain and flooding can so dramatically change the terrain of earth that valleys will no longer be valleys and mountains will no longer be mountains.

Well, the answer to the question is that the Garden of Eden ceased to exist after the cataclysmic flood and is no where to be found, it perished. (See 2 Peter.3:6,1-5).

IF the river euphrates and Tigris came out of the Garden of eden then all we have to do is look for the source of these rivers.

They have their source in Turkey, so therefore the Garden of Eden is in Turkey.

Tigris and Euphrates are in mesopotamia.  The other 2 rivers don't exist any more but one was side to encircle Ethiopia which is in Africa.

If you take it to be literarily geographical then there are a lot of problems.  Where is the source of the Tigris and the Euphrates.  Do they share the same source.  Wherever the source is is where the Garden of Eden is? 

However if the entire Garden of Eden story is figurative then a whole new world of meaning opens up to us.  In fact the world of meaning actually encompasses the whole world and we find that the imagery already exists the world over and not just in the bible.  However in other cultures it is interpreted differently.  What is common is the iconography.  ie the image of a Goddess (usually in trinity form- ie triple goddess) accompanied by a Snake standing next to a tree and handing fruit from the tree to an approaching man. 

I'll repeat:  The image of a Woman/Goddess in single or triple form standing next to a tree and handing fruit from the tree to the outstretched hand of an approaching man in the presence of a Serpent is an image that has cropped up in man's artistic and mythological imagination from time immemorial. 

It seems that Man's fantasies and visual imagination has limits within which it operates and the same images keep cropping up which finds it's way into folklore, Art and religion.  However the manner in which these images are interpreted are vary from culture to culture. 

In most cultures the fruit of the tree is sought after and considered a boon.  The man is an initiate seeking eternal life from the tree.  In the Bible there are actually 2 trees rather than one whereas in most other cultures there is only one tree. 

In many other cultures the Woman handing him the fruit is not his wife but rather a Goddess who is initiating him into the mysteries of Eternal life.  She is herself the mother of all living.  The Snake is often the Goddesses consort.  Sometimes there are 2 snakes intertwined.   

The four rivers are actually the 4 elements or humours that rise from the center (quintessence) and go out into the world. 

1) the sumerian myth of Ningizzida, the Lord of the tree of Truth, consort to the goddess. He is often portrayed with a pair of serpents entwined around each other like the caduceus. and a doorway protected by cherubim (winged lions).

Oh yeah, there is also the aspect that has the tree protected by Winged Lions called Cherubim. 

2) In the story of Hercules and the Hesperides the iconography is interpreted totally differently.  The Goddess is the 3 sisters the Hesperides who are willing for Hercules to get the fruit of the tree.  However, far from encouraging hercules to take the fruit of the tree this time the serpent called Ladon is protecting the tree and is trying to stop Hercules from getting the fruit.

3)The akkadians also had a SErpent lord that bestowed the boon of immortality to initiates.

4)6) Demeter, the greek goddess of the eleusinain mysteries and her divine son Ploutos.

http://images.google.com/images?svnu, er+and+Ploutos

Check especially the third image where she is handing out the boon to ploutos and behind her is the Serpent.

http://mythologica.fr/grec/pic/ceres-ploutos.gif

5) The Buddha went seeking enlightenment at the foot of the Bodhi Tree. When the forces of desire tried to distract him, A serpent called Muchalinda rose and protected him with it's hood. Here again the serpents role is protective rather than guarding against the eating of the fruit.

6)

A very interesting twist of the interpretation of the image in the story of how the Trojan war was started.  It was said to have been caused when Paris was asked to judge a beauty contest between 3 goddess.  I think it was Hera, Aphrodite and Athena.  In this story we still have 3 goddesses standing next to Hermes who is represented by his caduceus of intertwined serpents.  We have the outstretched hand of Paris with an apple in it but it is interpreted in the opposite manner.  Rather than Paris receiving the apple from the trinity of Goddess he is actually handing it over to the winner of the beauty contest (Aphrodite) thus setting up the chain of events that leads to the Trojan war.

The garden of eden was in mesopotamia which is located in mordern day Iraq. The evidence is in the bible were the garden is said to be located were four rivers meet. The place this four rivers meet as been identified to be in mesopotamia although one of them is extinct.

Genesis 2:10-14:

10And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

11The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

12And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

13And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

14And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

Location unknown, there is more to that story than we probably know.

Garden of Eden can not be interpreted as a physical location alone, there is more to it, if not then eating of fruit, serpent talking etc will be real
