The Garden of Eden is in New Jersey:

Why else do you think it is called the Garden State? In an attempt to stop the area from being overrun with tourists, the US created Jersey Shore and spread rumors that the state was a place worse than death. Everything we think we have seen of the state is actually an elaborate Hollywood set filled with actors.

Did you really think such an awful place could exist in real life?

On a similar note, the Fountain of Youth is in Cleveland and Detroit was built to hide the Ark of the Covenant.

Well, they did decide to hide the ark in a warehouse... And how do you hide a warehouse?
It's easy, mmkay?

If the Garden of Eden is in New Jersey, they burned it.

And built a night club on the ashes.

I design worlds. Or, I hope to.
Why are all the biblical things hidden in a place that didn't exist during biblical times?

If one believes that God created the world, wouldn't all of it have existed in Biblical times? It makes sense. And if that's the case, the garden could have been anywhere. The geographic location that would become New Jersey existed, it just didn't go by that name at the time.

[up] I didn't mean the landmass existing, I meant America.

EDIT: Never mind. I get what you're saying.

No! Lies! There is no Garden of Eden here!

Now go watch Jersey Shore and stay far away.
And if I claim to be a wise man, well, it surely means that I don't know.

I dunno where the perception of "such an awful place" comes from, the New Jersey I live in is beautifully diverse. By that I mean, for every shit-hole, there's acres of undisturbed forest.

Wouldn't be surprised though, if the Garden of Eden was deep in the Pine Barrens somewhere. Then showed up in Weird NJ

My mom grew up in Jersy in the 70's.Don't think Eden is there. Although there was that one park in Sandy Hook...

Sandy hook's nice. I doubt the garden of eden's here though.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
