  • Very interesting Charles. My husband travels to the middle east and when he was in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia last fall, the local people say that it is where The garden of Eden of Eve was located.... because the tomb of Eve is located there. I wonder how that correlates with what you found. Now of course if we take Genesis literally it can't be the Garden of Eden if Eve is there as she was cast out with Adam. Jeddah is on the Red Sea however and there seems to be a mountain range between it and the eastern side of the country...Of course lots could have changed topographically since then or maybe when they were "cast out" they really had to travel to get where they finally settled...?. Wonder how many sites are claimed to be the Garden of Eden? Some even claim it's in Missouri USA! Maybe like the flood story that is known in many lands and cultural traditions, there are more than one and it is just synonymous with paradise?
