While discussing the dating of the Great Pyramid, Marduk and I got sidetracked on a debate relating to the origination of the word "Eden."
The premise of the debate was as follows;
I had suggested the word was originally "E.DIN" and he suggested the word was always "Eden," although he believed that it was actually the word for mountain, and this particular mountain had a city on top, that he claims was called "heaven." In otherwords, the concept that the ancients were referring to the starry firmament when they said "heaven," was confused with the city of heaven, which was BY the starry firmament in that it was on a very high mountaintop.... or so he theorizes. I disagreed with that proposal, firstly because it was pretty obvious the ancients not only called the sky, "heaven," but that they knew the difference between a city on a mountaintop and the sky.

Garden of Eden Summary
A description of the location and physical characteristics of the Garden of Eden is provided in The Urantia Book. The location is said to have been on a long narrow peninsula that extended off the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea. According to The Urantia Book, Adam and Eve first lived at this location almost 38,000 years ago, and it further states that this peninsula sank into the Mediterranean Sea approximately 34,000 years ago. The topography of the seafloor in an area between Cyprus and the Syrian coast fits the description and looks to be the only area that could. Today, this area off the eastern coast of Mediterranean Sea drops down sharply, quickly reaching a depth of nearly one mile.
When The Urantia Book was published in 1955, sonar readings needed to create a detailed map of the eastern Mediterranean basin did not exist. Such maps were not created until decades after The Urantia Book's publication. (Research from the last several years, tracing a specific upgrade in the genetic history of human beings, also lends powerful support to The Urantia Book's recounting of the story of Adam and Eve. See Adam and Eve.)
