The claim wasn't that Nineveh was Babylon. The claim is mistranslation has led people to believe the gardens werein Babylon and they weren't.

Gosh, I can't even imagine how amazing that would have been to see.
Too often people think of people back then and think they must have had it 'rough.' Not at all. Seeing the hanging gardens would have been absolutely wonderous. Let alone just the aqueduct used to transport the water. Engineering, surveying, excavating, building on a grand scale. Far more impressive than anything on Earth today, in my opinion.
Great find! I love it when dates are pushed backwards!
