Eden revisited: Geography, numerics and other tales
Prof. Emilio Spedicato
Eden, the place where Adam and Eve were created, is briefly described in Genesis, first book of the Bible, and more extensively in other ancient Mesopotamian sources. Here we consider the geographical elements identifying Eden that are found in Genesis. We show the existence of a specific location in Asia that fully satisfies such geographical data. In the context of our geographical identification we propose new interpretations of extremely ancient symbols and paradigms of human culture, including the swastika and the names of the cardinal points in Germanic related languages.
