    I thought the Garden of Eden was in Iraq!


  2. For whatever it’s worth, I just finished a class on Mesopotamian mythology, and many of the flood-related stories referred to an Edenic-type location that is a subject of some dispute. In some legends it is unknamed, and in others it is callen Dilmun. It is generally vaguely identified with Bahrain which, you guessed it, in the Persian gulf. Perhaps the Dilmun story has some overlap in origin with the Garden of Eden as described by these folk.
