Where Is Garden Of Eden Located In The Present Day?

Nursery of Eden, in the OT of the Holy Book from Genesis, scriptural natural heaven possessed by the previously made man and lady. 

Adam and Eve, preceding their ejection for resisting the precepts of God. It is likewise brought in beginning as 'Garden of Yahweh'. 

Nursery of Eden 

Recommendations for the area of the Garden of Eden are: at its wellspring of the waterways, while others, including Juris Zarins have taken a gander at the top of the Persian Gulf, in south of Mesopotamia (presently Iraq) a point the Euphrates and Tigris streams run into the ocean; and in the Armenian Highlands or Plateau. 

David Rohlof of Britain and an archaeologist finds it in Iran, and nearby Tabriz, however this recommendation has not gotten on with academic sources.

Most Bible discourses express that the site of the Garden of Eden was around Middle East, arranged some place close to where the Euphrates and Tigris streams are presently. This depends on the portrayal said in the first book of the bible 2:8–14: 

"A stream streamed out of Eden to water the nursery, and there it isolated and became four waterways. The first of these waterways is Pishon which streamed around the entire place known for Havilah, where gold is located. Furthermore, the gold of that land is acceptable; there are Onyx and bdellium stones. The subsequent waterway is Gihon. The one streamed around the entire place where there is Cush. Tigris is the third waterway, which streams east of Assyria. Furthermore, Euphrates is the next waterway. (Genesis 2:10-14) 

To begin with, how about we look at the Biblical data. While the Tigris and Euphrates both have their top-waters in the zone encompassing Mt. Ararat, there is no streaming of them from a source compared to spokes on a wheel, occupying the land as referenced. There are no two other streams that has it way to Ethiopia. Besides, the mineral stores referenced bear no similarity to those around there. To put it plainly, the geology and portrayals don't coordinate. 

The key is in perceiving that on Noah's day of the flooding, "the world that at that point was, being flooded with water, was gone" (II Peter 3:6). As depicted in Genesis 6-9, the Flood would have completely made a restructurisation of the globe. It would have done what significant floods mostly do — disintegrate the land surface in one territory and redeposit those residue somewhere else. Scripturally, the Flood covered the planet with measures working at paces, scales, and forces a long ways past those conceivable today. No put on Earth might have endured this flood. 

These dregs would have been loaded with natural flotsam and jetsam, which after some time would either fossilize or transform into oil and gas. The dregs would solidify into sedimentary stone, in places twisting into mountains or breaking along issue frameworks. 

Today, the Tigris-Euphrates River Valley contains a composition of dregs (sediments) greater than two miles thick, from which are siphoned colossal amounts of oil and gas. The dregs, presently rock, are drastically twisted into current mountains just as subsurface mountains, and ruthlessly broken by significant flaw frameworks. They profoundly cover and dark any conceivable pre-flood areas. Moreover, the storm cellar rock, if to be sure it was available before the Flood, would have likely gone through disintegration too. No current geography or underground surface might actually bear any likeness to the pre-flood world.

Noah and his family would have experienced the present-day Tigris and Euphrates Rivers not long after leaving the Ark. As their relatives moved, they would give natural names to the new streams and places. 

Eden isn't about the area, it's about the significance of life 

It appears to be that the specific area of the nursery isn't that imperative to us. Or maybe, we should zero in on the significance of the nursery of Eden for our lives, as the Bible depicts it. In Eden, man was great. He strolled gladly and purely with God. The name Eden most likely alludes to an existence of extravagance or delight. This would be a striking portrayal of the everyday routine experienced by Adam and Eve before they trespassed against God. This carries us to the "clouded side" of Eden. Man trespassed, man was sent out.
