The Long Walk From Eden To A Town Near You
"So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the Earth"
The map below is a scientific (a word that simply means to observe and to measure - it's only atheistic when individuals choose to make it so for themselves; see also Rescuing Charles Darwin From The Atheists and What Prophecy Do Atheists Fulfill For Themselves?) diagram of how ancient humans migrated from their place of origin to everywhere on Earth. The diagram also includes the scientific explanation of the 3 major families that composed the earliest humans.
While the map is "scientific" (i.e. based solely upon anthropology and archaeology), it nevertheless perfectly matches the Biblical account of how humanity was scattered throughout the Earth from their origin in Eden - after humans made it into "Babylon."
Many people think only of the Garden in Eden when they think of Eden, but Eden was actually a vast area that spanned the areas of the great rivers of the "fertile crescent" - the region where both science and the Holy Bible agree (even though they very rarely admit it to each other) that humanity originated.
"2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
After the Flood (see Biblical Eras: The Flood In The Time Of Noah), humanity began again, but again became corrupt. This time, the LORD didn't just drive them out of the Garden, but still in Eden (see Biblical Eras: The Rise And Fall Of The First Family) - He drove them everywhere on Earth. While many regard that scattering as a free ride, the LORD drove them away and out by force - and by foot. As the map above shows, they walked, or used primitive boats and ships, to inhabit the world of today.
"11:1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
