But anyways i was wandering if anyone had ideas of where the garden is


The garden of Eden disappeared after the flood in Noah's time.

About a year ago I was thinking on this same thing. I then saw a christian program that dealt with the topic and would have recorded it had I known it was going to be on, so that I could remember all the points brought up. Anyway the answer I thought of was the same that the program mentioned.

Through Bible reading and studying a person finds out that the land area of Israel is important to God. I believe Eden was the area of Israel. Jerusalem is also important to God. I believe that the garden that was in Eden was located where Jerusalem is. The program I watched expanded on this and went further than what I thought of. The host also believes that the Tree of Life that was in the garden is also the exact spot where the Ark of the Covenant stood in the temple. Just thinking about it that would seem to make sense but I guess you could also have an argument for saying that the Tree of Life could have been at the spot where Christ was crucified as He brings us life anew.

Not sure if online Enoch(Noahs grandfather) books are corrupt and he is a direct descendant of Adam, but The tree of life and Eden were on a different level than us(Dimension or such) and the third heaven is where it is. The earth probably is not located in the third heaven but if it is than theres another earth out there that we do not know about.

In my reading I found this that describes the garden.

"The city of "Eden" is located in what seems to be a beautiful valley, yet, in fact, it is on the loftiest mountain plateau of the Inner Continent, several thousand feet higher than any portion of the surrounding country. It is the most beautiful place I have ever beheld in all my travels. In this elevated garden all manner of fruits, vines, shrubs, trees, and flowers grow in riotous profusion.

In this garden four rivers have their source in a mighty artesian fountain. They divide and flow in four directions. This place is called by inhabitants the "navel of the earth," or the beginning, "the cradle of the human race." The names of the rivers are the Euphrates, the Pison, the Gihon, and the Hiddekel."

Do a key word search for " The Smoky God"

Book of Enoch(Noah's granddad) chaptrer 8
1And those men took me thence, and led me up on to the third heaven, and placed me there; and i looked downwards and saw the produce of these places, such as never been known for goodness.
2and i saw all the sweet-flowered trees and beheld their fruits, which were sweet-smelling, and all the foods borne of them bubbling with fragrent exhalation.
3And in the midst of the trees that of life, in that place whereon the Lord rests, when he goes up into paradise; and this tree is of ineffable goodness and fragrece, and adorned more than every existing thing; and on all sides it is in form gold-looking and vermilion and fire-like and covers all, and it has produce from all fruits.
------------
4 its root is at the garden at the earths end
5and paradise is between corruptibility and incorruptibility

6And two springs come out which send forth honey and milk, and their springs send forth oil and wine, and they seperate into four parts, and go round with quiet course, and go down into the PARADISE OF EDEN between corruptibility and incorruptibility

The bible was not written by any apostles of Jesus.

Sorry it does look that way and i am new here so i messed up.
And bibles are hard to understand because the people who read it in hebrew and translated werent the smartest scribes in the drawer. But king james took the time to learn hebrew or greek i think hebrew to translate but i recommend learning it yourself(lol) if you want it to make most sense.

It does to people who want to prove that the "infallible word of God" is simply a quite fallible and contradictory work of man's hand...

(5) For what did the soldiers at the Cross cast lots? His garments--Matt. 27:35 ("they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots") and Mark 15:24 ("And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take") and Luke 23:34 ("...

In my opinion, looking for any kind of history in the Bible before Exodus is pretty pointless; it's full of allegory and symbolism in Genesis, and much is borrowed from other Mesopotamian cultures. You will spend your whole life trying to find the Garden of Eden or Noah's Ark and still not prove anything... but there is much in the Bible from Exodus onward that can be proven through archaeology and scientific means. All of the digging going on in Israel today is producing more and more amazing finds!

Showing that all of those theories are still very possibly a reality...

King Jame's bible is the worst translation attempt in history.

Here is a link to a direct hebrew-english translation of the old books; bible.ort.org...

They also have Tora and other books, and other languages (think I saw russia).

The garden of Eden is in California, the DEA is doing their best to rip it, tear it down, and jail its gardeners.

IMHO, the best English language translation of the Jewish Bible ("Old Testament") is the Stone Edition (here is a place you can see a sample or buy it: www.artscroll.com...).

This has the Hebrew and English side by side, along with great footnotes and illustrations. For anyone who is serious about understanding the Bible, this is a great resource. Many nuances get lost from the original Hebrew, and unfortunately most Christian translations were translated from Hebrew to Greek and then to English; King James is the worst by far (although it is a wonderful example of English prose).

If you insist on a Christian translation, the Oxford Study Bible is decent; it uses both the Masoretic texts and the Septuagint and it has plenty of footnotes to explain why certain passages were translated in the manner that they were translated.
