Wow, that's amazing..

I miss seeing stuff like this on tombraiderchronicles.com, you know real life Tomb Raider stuff? I guess Justin's been too busy.

But the Garden of Eden? I thought it was a made up story to teach a lesson, at least that's what I've heard. I guess it could in fact be real, that would be highly awesome.

interesting.

you know... those carvings look to me to be better made than some of the other things I have seen. and MUCH better preserved for its supposed age of 13,000 years old. However, I don't know if we can call this the Garden of Eden as depicted in the Bible (where else would you get it from?). Adam and Eve were banished from the garden upon eating the forbidden fruit - and it is my assumption that the ban was held in place for all future generations. Been a while since I read Genesis, but I thought there was something said about the gates being closed forever.

anyhow... despite Biblical discrepancies - if this is a genuine find then I am truly impressed.

Thats pretty incredible considering how old it is, I mean 12,000 years is so old. Whether or not it is the site of Eden I don't know, perhaps it is. But even if it isn't it is a remarkable site all the same.

^ well... things have been "found" before by people claiming to be experts and made the news and all that good stuff. Only to be found debunked at snopes.com and many other websites. But really... did this find ever make the news back in 1994? Certainly they would have released info about even the first item dug up, before digging up 40 or 50 different blocks that are supposed to be 12 - 13,000 years old. You have to expect skepticism about something so stunning.

Well considering the stones look like sandstone, Id be impressed if they were 12 years old much less 12000.
