I’m sure this passage in Genesis could have been further clarified, but perhaps it doesn’t need to be. God must have created out of nothing because there was nothing before he created (otherwise he would not be God).

Was Eden really near the Tigris and Euphrates as Genesis describes and the whole place was “moved” after the fall?
Our small group is going through the Heaven Study Guide and I have a question concerning the tree of life being in the current Intermediate Heaven. It was originally in Eden, which has been said to be in Iraq...now nothing like Paradise. Was Eden really there, near the Tigris and Euphrates as Genesis describes and the whole place was “moved” after the fall? Just trying to reconcile that it was originally a physical identifiable place here in our current dimension on this Earth, that is not at all like we picture the walled garden of Paradise where the tree is now located.
