A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers. The name of the first is the Pishon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. And the gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there. The name of the second river is the Gihon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Cush. And the name of the third river is the Tigris, which flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.(Genesis 2:10-14) ESV
At the end of the third day the Earth is a hollow sphere covered with lush vegetation. The land mass covers the majority of it’s surface. The the dry ground is described as having four major geographic areas.
- East of Assyria.
Each geographic area is dominated by a mountain chain which carries one of four major rivers along its crest. The Rivers are:
- Pishon – Havilah,
- Gihon – Ethiopia,
- Hiddekel – East of Assyria,
- Euphrates – Assyria.
The four rivers and their mountain systems are fed from a source: Eden. Eden is the highest point of a mountain that fills the whole earth, from which all water flows, and at which water up-wells from the deep within the Earth. The Earth is mostly hollow. The vast chamber inside is filled with water and is now referred to as the great deep. There’s a central solid core, the foundation of the earth, from which radiate pillars, like spokes, which maintain stability between the core and mantle. This seems oddly familiar.
