    Based on my previous studies I believe this is the Garden of Eden. Evidence includes the rivers described in the Bible. Also, it was destroyed by a flood.

    What on earth makes you think the garden of Edin was in the Middle east? Are the rivers named? What is so special about them that you can match them to the description in the Bible?

    The real garden of Eden was in New Zealand. Don't forget that long after Adam left the garden, Noah spend a month on the high seas and was blown all the way to the Middle east. The massive geological effects that caused the flood and the flood itself changed the face of the earth so much that you can no longer accurately identify the exact rivers in New Zealand.

    Yes, the rivers are named.

    [i]The Genesis creation narrative relates the geographical location of both Eden and the garden to four rivers (Pishon, Gihon, Tigris, Euphrates), and three regions (Havilah, Assyria, and Kush).[2] There are hypotheses that place Eden at the headwaters of the Tigris and Euphrates (northern Mesopotamia), in Iraq (Mesopotamia), Africa, and the Persian Gulf.

    "Though the forbidden fruit in the Book of Genesis is not identified, popular Christian tradition holds that a serpent coaxed Adam and Eve to eat an apple from the forbidden tree in the Eden." [wiki]

    Perhaps I had popular Christian tradition in mind.

    For clarification, I should say, I think this was Eden, not necessarily the garden itself.

    If it is there, then it is easy to find it, now when they know where to look for it.
    If they don't find it, then we can trust that it is just a myth, and nothing more.

    See what I mean?

    Every time I turn around science discovers something else that disproves it's former findings.

    Scienanarchy!

    That's my new word for today. 🙂
