Garden of Eden, where exactly is it..?

Do you know where this garden really is? I have an interesting idea or something. This Garden mentioned in the Bible was surrounded by various monsters and those flying swords. That means, it really can not be discovered because God do not want it to be discovered. Many scientist believed that they found it somewhere in the middle east particularly in Iraq. I am little bit confused by that one because, "How come they did discovered that place? Did they passed those flying swords and all those stuff...?" I do not even think that it can be discovered because God hid it in our eyes. It may be in different dimension. What can you say about this one?

Yes, it is the book of Genesis in the Bible, where a talking serpent tricks Eve into eating fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil...in the Garden of Eden. This story is known as the fall of man. I don't believe in the story either, although I do believe in an intelligent, conscious Creator. I am a theistic evolutionist.

Oh, yeah, I forgot about the sword. Genesis says that, after God supposedly cursed Adam and Eve for having eaten from the tree he had forbidden them, and the talking serpent for his deceit, God banished them from the Garden of Eden. It is written that He posted cherubim (angels), and a flaming sword that moved on its own to guard the tree of life, lest Adam and Eve eat of this tree, and regain immortality. There is debate over the location of the Garden of Eden, had it been a real place: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garden_of_Eden#Suspected_locations As far as the fossil record is concerned, Chiang_Mai_boy is right. Scientists seem to be in agreement that Africa is the cradle of human life. The oldest human skeleton I am aware of, Lucy, came from Ethiopia, in north-east Africa.
