Hello Walter,

After reading your last post regarding the location of the garden of Eden
and then this latest one I thought it good if I let you know about yet
another place that many people believe to be the location of the garden of
Eden.  In fact, many Asiatic people take this information for granted as

It is interesting to read Sargon's Chronicle which, although authored in
Mesopotamia, spoke of Eden as being in yet a different place.  The Pamir
Plateau is considered by some to be the Garden of Eden and the Tarim Basin
is the location of the flood of Noah's time that brought an end to the
influx of the hybrid offspring of men and fallen angels, the giants.

There was such a flood noted as taking place in the Tarim Basin in Chinese
history (the Shu-King), in which an individual named Fu-hi built an ark and
loaded it up with animals and went through exactly the same things that Noah
did at exactly the same time frame, as the Chinese history places this
deluge in the reign of Emporer Yaou.  In case you take a look at a map, the
Tamir Basin is in Eastern Turkistan.  This also opens one's eyes a bit when
you take into account that Cain was driven out and went to Nod, which was
even more eastward of the Pamir Plateau and Tamir Basin area.  By the way,
there are four rivers in this area and keep in mind that "Euphrates" comes
from the word PERATH, which implies "a river of the east", so it just may be
that people are looking for the wrong Euphrates. While you are looking at
the map, note that the CUSH mountains are in this area and the Gihon flows
there.  The Pison has been attributed to the Ganges for centuries.

I hope that you find this information interesting and useful.  I have more
on this topic if you are interested.
