God took it up into Heaven.
---Betty on 8/24/10

If the Garden still existed on earth at the time of Noah's flood then it would have been destroyed, as the whole world of that time was destroyed by this cataclysm.

Consider that c75% of the earths surface is covered in sedimentary rock, in which untold billions of fossils of once living creatures are preserved. Testimony to the immense power of the world-wide flood.

If it existed on earth today it would have been found.

Jesus may have answered this blog question:

The OBEDIENT HEART of man IS the Garden of God.

The LORD is the Gardener who plants His will. Anything opposing the farmer's will is a pest/an enemy. These must be cut off from all access to the Garden.
God planted Adam in the Garden to obey. But at the same time, Adam's heart was meant to be The Garden.

After A/E disobeyed, Cherubs and "A Flaming Sword"(which I believe to have been GOD Himself/THE WORD) guarded the garden from all directions against "the enemies" of God and "the pests" of the Garden. Adam/Eve/Mankind were the enemies and the pests.

Keep thy heart with all diligence out of it flow issues of lifeProv4:23

I believe that the Garden of Eden (or at least part of it) was removed from earth and taken to heaven prior to the flood of Noah. It is the "paradise of God" mentioned in Rev 2:7 which has the tree of life in the midst of it - just as in the Garden of Eden. The river of life (Rev 22:1,2) flows from the throne of God and through this tree of life.

People who try to paint God their own color will be in for a surprise on judgement day. White people are guilty of the same thing.

To me if we all came from the middle east area and we're all descendants of either Shem, Ham or Japheth I tend to think that Adam and Eve and even Christ were fairly dark skinned. The same color as those that reside in the area right now.

So its a brown Jesus :D Not white or black lol

Well since apparently posting a URL gets your blog deleted Ill have to do it this way...

Its the same place it was 6000+ years ago. It is hidden because it contains the tree of life... something sinful man is not allowed to have access to.

When Christs kingdom is set up it will be revealed again with the Tree of Life. It hasnt moved. Its in Israel buried where men will not be able to find it, guarded by Cherubims.

Theres supposed to be another great earthquake when Christ sets foot in the earth again possibly uncovering Eden.
---JackB on 8/4/10

Genesis 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food, the TREE OF LIFE also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches, To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the TREE OF LIFE, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
---francis on 8/3/10

No doubt that the garden of eden is in the Capital & Nation of Israel. Israel Is The First Nation of the world. God being Jewish, there would have been no other place to get the order of the world going.

The Garden of Eden existed pre-flood, such flood as destroyed the earth. Surely therefore it is long gone, nowhere to be seen, as Greg has written.

By faith I believe it really existed, and by faith Mike believes it didn't. Aren't we all such faithful people. But which of these two faiths comes with a promise for now and a sure and certain hope for the future?
---Warwick on 11/20/08

Gen 2:10-14 gives a good explanation of where it was. It has probably been destroyed by now and will not be found after all these thousands of years.
---john on 11/16/08

Mike, you're kidding right?
---Gilbert on 12/11/07

The Garden of Eden exists only in the minds of the men who made it up.
---Mike on 12/10/07

Here's an idea. we know that rivers wash away minerals and such over time. We also kow that a flash flood can cause great movement of such. Why does everyone think that the rivers that exsisted before the flood could possibly still be there after the flood. I think that people tend to name things after what is familiar to them. Knowing that all things had been destroyed by the flood, maybe they renamed new rivers they happened across after the ones that they knew from before the flood. Is this possible?
---Greg on 12/10/07

The surface of the earth was obviously destroyed. One person said that when water covers something it doesn't change the earth suface underneath the water. Are you serious? The fountains of the deep burst forward. They didn't slowly seep. Take your water hose and point it at your flower bed. It doesn't take long before you have a hole. Imagine hundreds of feet of water. High enough to cover all the mountains by at least twenty feet. This will definately change the land underneeth it.
---Greg on 12/10/07

Ashley! Wouldn't it be cool if you were right about plate techtonics. No one has seen plate techtonics. Yes there are cracks that run all around the earth that ooze lava. But there is no way to say that this is plate techtonics. Scientist so often see a piece of evidence and so often they get transported back in time millions of years and take pictures of these things happening. Then they return and write books and every body accepts their great finding. The Bible doesn't talk in theory. Men do.
---Greg on 12/10/07

Despite modern technology God has the power to keep us from finding it. The story of Adam and Eve is traced back to the writings of Greeks, Syrians, Egyptions, Abyssinians, Hebrews and other ancient peoples. If Eve didn't bite the forbidden fruit we would have two kinds of people. One living with sin and one running around naked. The evil would have killed off the pure if they could reach them. In a sense it's a good thing it started off with Eve-but I don't appreciate the labor pains.

If there was a deluge as described in Genesis, it wiped out the Garden of Eden.
---John1944 on 11/2/07

Cont. One River watered the garden. Cush/Ethiopia is mentioned so in the Tigris & Euphrates in Iraq. The names or these rivers are actually in question. If you want to go with Africa you've got a good case but more north Sudan or Egypt posibly even the botteom the Mediteranian Sea.
---Gilbert on 11/2/07

Ashley, "A river watering the garden flowed from Eden, from there it was separated into four headwaters. The name of the first is the Pishon, it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. The name of the second river is the Gihon, it winds through the entire land of Cush. The name of the third river is the Tigris, it runs along the east side of Asshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates."
---Gilbert on 11/2/07

Sue: another example of the bible saying one thing and men thinking they know more than God saying something else. Ethiopia is a desert where nothing can grow. why because the garden is guarded by cheribim from God, forever keeping it from the eyes of man. It is also surrounded by the four rivers mentioned in the bible. Gen 2:13 states the garden is in Ethiopia. why corrupt men choose to argue that with God and say it is elsewhere like Iraq defies logic. who gave men the authority to call God a liar.

When my son was stationed in Iraq I remember telling him that God made the Garden of Eden where he was ..... he told me, 'ma, nothing could grow in this dreadful dessert!".
On another note: I wonder why God didn't want Adam and Eve to be knowledgeable?
---sue on 11/1/07

Having majored-geography and vulcanology, your argument about the flood does not hold water. when water covers something, it doesn't altar the earth beneath it. You may see shifting of sand, rocks, pebbles etc, but nothing else shifts unless tectonic plates shift. as someone said here, continental drift takes millions of years, not six thousand. get the facts and then voice an opinion. Jesus was born in Nazareth north of Jerusalem. has Jerusalem moved thousands of miles through storms. of course not.
---ashley on 10/31/07

You're assuming that the earth geographys wasn't altered by the Flood. Also, Eden had one river with four head waters. You've also identified one river, maybe. What about the other four?
---Gilbert on 10/31/07


"Continental drift" is a process that takes millions of years - it's currently measured in inches per year. According to Biblical chronology, Noah's Flood was only around 4-5000 years ago, so the continents wouldn't even have drifted a mile from their current positions.

Besides, two of the borders of the Garden of Eden are actual rivers that exist today - the Tigris and Euphrates.

Amen Whisper!! Good point about the snake roast. So, when are we leaving, guys? LOL and God Bless..
---Cynthia on 10/30/07

Noah's flood combined with the continental drift make it virtually impossible to determine where the Garden is (or was) based on what we currently know through biblical and archaeology clues.
---AG on 10/29/07

So many don't see what they read. I quote Genesis chapter 2 verse 13. there are four rivers. The Pison, the Euphrates, the Hiddekah and the Gihon. "13- And the second river is Gihon, the same is it that conpasseth the whole land of 'ETHIOPIA' There is only one place where all four rivers meet in four corners. Africa, not Iraq as so many love to say here. Where the garden once stood, it is now desert guarded by Cheribim. If you are going to preach the bible, read the bible.

Andrea and Cynthia, I think a trip to Iraq is in order to cut down that tree, and have a snake roast.
---Whisper on 10/29/07

Maggie:: The ARK built by Noah was also built in Iraq.Rebkka, Issacs wife also came from Iraq.Plus a few more interesting details.
---Emcee on 10/29/07

maggie: ummm wouldn't have the garden of eden been destroyed in the flood (Ark of Noah story)and then the earth wouldv'e moved the soil so most probably would've covered it.... and so on..
---magga4386 on 10/28/07

Amen Andrea, I will help you cut that tree down! We will do it together.. God Bless!

I saw a TV show about this issue a few years ago. They compared the descriptions of the rivers with descriptions in many other ancient documents and traced it to a certain valley surrounded by mountains, somewhere a bit east of the Middle East, which seemed to fit the geographical description. This appeared to have once been a fertile plain, and there was an unremarkable city there now. I can't remember the name of it.

(Of course, this is not proof, just a plausible hypothesis).
---StrongAxe on 10/27/07

Few of us have already found the garden of delight.
---Eloy on 10/27/07

It is hidden. Only God knows where it is. Andrea: From the knowledge you now know, why would you want to cut the tree down? It isn't the tree's fault. It was just the tree of knowledge of good and evil. You already know what is good and evil. If Satan can trick Eve, then he can others and without using a use a tree.

Andrea::FYI the garden of Eden called Paradise is located in also are many Biblical places.
---Emcee on 10/26/07

I don't know where it is but if you find it there's a tree I'd like to cut down.
---Andrea on 10/26/07

Two of the rivers boundaries are in modern Iraq, Hiddekel is the Tigris river. The Euphrates is still known by the original name. There was some thing in the new recently about using satellite photography to locate the other two rivers which are now dried up but river beds still show up. I don't remember if the details indicated if it was wholly contained in Iraq or include parts of Turkey or Sierra.
---notlaw99 on 10/26/07

I don't think anyone wants to find it. Angel, flaming sword, certain death. Not the safest hunt. It may have been distroyed in the flood. Revelations seems to imply that it may be in the New Jerusalem. Genesis gives some idea of location but we don't maps or geological records prior to the flood.
