The Süleyman Paradox
Given that traditional writings about Moses tell us he was raised in a house of the Egyptian pharaoh, we must assume he was well educated, knowledgeable and conversant in Egyptian lore, including the Book of the Heavenly Cow (presumably one of the sources Solon and Sonchis translated from Egyptian to Greek that WRL argues was a basis for Plato’s Critias and Timaues dialogues). It is a simple step in logic to directly connect Moses’ youthful education with the Egyptian lore and Plato’s subsequent works. So, following this argument to its natural extension, yes, it does appear as though it is possible that Moses’ Garden of Eden is sourced from the same writings as those later used by Plato; writings for which WRL has offered a measurable hypothesis placing the gardens of Poseidon, or the Garden of Eden, on the hard steppes of the Saharan Atlas in Algeria. A cursory review of geologic, geographic and general descriptions of the Garden in Eden of Genesis, including the flora present after its abandonment, closely match the physical reality of the Saharan Atlas steppe today. There are even four major ephemeral or extinct rivers that can be seen crossing the steppe region and esparto grasses and wormwood are found growing in the harsh environment.
In the multifaceted debate between people of faith, atheists, scientists, secularists, humanists and others—with each proponent arguing their list of subjective points from a clearly apparent agenda that has included, from an intractable minority, profoundly violent acts involving mass murder —it seemed prudent to conduct an investigative analysis of this topic in search of objectivity, commonality and reason.
