A bit off topic, but there is an interesting idea that the site of "Eden" is under the water of the Persian Gulf.

Floated by a guy named Dr, Zarins.
A key point is an alterative meaning of the "headwaters" of the 5 rivers from their highland sources to their lowland mouths.
And the fact that one of the rivers descriptions matches a Landstat discovered dry river across the northern area of Saudi Arabia.

Hi kb -

There was a special on TV about Dilmum which discussed that dry river.

One "problem" with Collins' book was with SLO's.

It was a comet which hit, and they do not contain much silica.

While a nuclear airburst can produce SLO's, not so for cometary airbursts - the energy released is too low and the release occurs too high too high.
If you have SLO's, most likely they are from ground impact.

Either that, or you have tangential impact, or multiple air impacts with intense fire, and I'm not real sure about the last as an SLO production mechanism.

We'll see- the distribution of impactites will lead to localization.

I will take your word for that.
I do not watch much T V
It is too scripted, with a lot of hidden axes to grind.

I am pretty much a sports only watcher.

The excavators of this site in Cyprus believe they have another PPN:

We'll have to see if its PPN-B.
