And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
( Genesis 2:10-14 )
Applying practical knowledge and simple logic to Genesis 2:10-14
- IF a river from Eden watered the whole surface of the earth,
- AND water flows downhill,
- THEN Eden was the highest point on the surface of the earth.
