The Garden of Eden.


Most of us know the story in Genesis of Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden, but where was this garden?  Especially, with what we now know about modern science and the origins of mankind.

Much of this essay will be asking questions, and poking some fun.  It is just my view, and some silliness involved.  This is in no way meant to offend.

Most think the Garden of Eden was in what’s now Iraq.  Think Abraham of Ur.  We now know, though, mankind originated in East Africa.

East Africa would be a bit tougher though.  Tsetse flies etc.  Not the best place for paradise.  Then many humans wandered out of Africa and became the ancestors of the rest of us.    We were still hunter gatherers though and needed a lot of territory.

What’s the Garden of Eden?  What you make of it.

 

 

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
