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.
