    Just a wild guess but, I would say that after the curse that it just deteriorated and eventually blended in with the surrounding area until it was indistinguishable.

    It sank to the center of the earth and was side by side with hell, after Jesus died and paradise (former Garden of Eden) no longer needed it was taken away.
    Just repeating what I heard. [​IMG]

    Thanks Diane. I am not an expert in archeology but I tend to agree with this article.

    Here is another perspective; Let's see what the bible says first.

    Gen 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

    Let's face it, it contained the tree of life and was protected. It does not say anywhere els that the Cherubims were taken away. it may possibly still be there, but God has made it invisible to man. Just a thought.

    That's what I had always heard Jailminister. I also have heard remarks like Gina brought up but saying that the Garden of Eden is the 'Bermuda Triangle'. Whereever it is.... it doesn't affect our salvation so I'm really not that curious. [​IMG]

    I think I saw it in the "Forbidden Zone" on Planet of the Apes. Charlton Heston was riding towards it in the last scene. :rolleyes: :eek:

    Seriously, I would opt with its destruction in the Flood. And the fabled "Tree of Life" that was there being protected by Cherubs? It is in heaven with the Lord, awaiting BOB!

    I guess that makes Mr Heston well-qualified to do a mini-series on the Bible. LOL

    I don't think I've ever seen so many different opinions and no one fighting. Good job people. Nice to see.

    I think the tree of life is in the New Jerusalem that will descend to earth one day. Reason being that after the New Jerusalem comes down, in Rev. 21, in Rev. 22 it says:

    Rev.22
    [1] And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

    [2] In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

    Just my 2 cents. ;)

    Certain Aboriginal tribes in their dreamtime stories have the Garden of Eden and the Tower of Babel as being located in Australia.

    Anything is possible. [​IMG]

    so whatever happend to...
    I think that God's will was done! :D

    No seriously....I see two possibilities:

    1. It is still in the same place, but some place that no one has been able to/or will ever be able to find or
    2. It was destroyed in the flood, however, my gut tells me that it still exists.

    That's something that I've always wondered....does the tower of babel still exist?

    The Mormons believe that it was near Independence, Missouri. Maybe because the Mormons stopped there along their journey to Utah. ;)
