Mesopotamia and the Bible

The bible remained silent for a long time. There a lot conclusions made out of these bible skeptics but these  remained as unsolved mysteries over the long period of time.

The documentary weve watch caught our attention after it gives focus on our "origin accoding to faith". It emphasizes the detailed life series of the diferent ancient civilization, its life and its culture.However the there are intigruing parts that gives judgemental on our God's Existence.
I have learned a lot of things in the Documentary, Because it gives us the "Reality based of Faith" and the " Reality which is really happening. For example, there are a lot of claims about the existence of tower of Babel. But which one is really real? of course we couldnt reallydetermine because we dont have enough fact to suit up our judgement cup.
In the Book of Genesis, it is indicated that Eden is west of Assyria. Sure enough, this is where Gobekli is sited.
Likewise, biblical Eden is by four rivers, including the Tigris and Euphrates. And Gobekli lies between both of these.
In ancient Assyrian texts, there is mention of a 'Beth Eden' - a house of Eden. This minor kingdom was 50 miles from Gobekli Tepe.
Another book in the Old Testament talks of 'the children of Eden which were in Thelasar', a town in northern Syria, near Gobekli.
The very word 'Eden' comes from the Sumerian for 'plain'; Gobekli lies on the plains of Harran.
Thus, when you put it all together, the evidence is persuasive. Gobekli Tepe is, indeed, a 'temple in Eden', built by our leisured and fortunate ancestors - people who had time to cultivate art, architecture and complex ritual, before the traumas of agriculture ruined their lifestyle, and devastated their paradise.
It's a stunning and seductive idea. Yet it has a sinister epilogue. Because the loss of paradise seems to have had a strange and darkening effect on the human mind.
