Where is the Garden of Eden?

Where is it most commonly believed to be?
According to scripture, history or geography.

Really close to the Tigris and Euphrates, if not in between them. Alot of the native wildlife over here is really hard to kill. One of the boards we used to build a shelter was made out of native purple heart wood. Extremely hard to cut and really heavy.

the commonly accepted location area is at those river locations, because they are mentioned in the description. however those river names may not be the same as the modern ones, especially in the case of a massive flood of the area.

my answer is: the planet earth.

Wouldn't "between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers" be, roughly, modern day Iraq?

The point of human origins is likely in Central Africa or Mesopotamia. If this is what you believe the Garden of Eden was, then I supposed it'd be one of those two.

I've always had a feeling that the Biblical Garden of Eden wasn't actually on Earth, but possibly in a pocket dimension, lower level of Heaven, parallel universe (with a separate time line), or some other place not of this plane of existence.

the only reason you are disagreeing with it being in Missouri is for the pure reason that Mormons believe that.

EDIT: I more or less believe the Genesis creation story is more of a metaphor.

IE: There is no literal Eden.
