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."

Ancient Migration

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.

2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. 2:11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 2:12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. 2:13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. 2:14 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 2:7-11 KJV)

The Great Rivers

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.

11:2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 11:3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 11:4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

11:5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 11:6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 11:9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth." (Genesis 11:1-9 KJV)
