The Biblical Garden of Eden

It was interesting to read about the possible locations of the Biblical Garden of Eden. Actually much of what I read in the article ties in with what my own research pointed out when reading about Ancient trade routes. (I'm researching to write a novel about Abraham).
I've heard the theory about the Southern location before, but not the Northern one. I tend to think it will be the Southern location because there is a Cherub guarding the approach (meaning that man won't be allowed in until God says so!) and that one is under water at the present time.
Also reading up on some stuff I found that around eight thousand years ago the climate of the Earth was much more temperate and much of the Desert in come places was savannah (this would support the idea of a Garden).
As for the Northern one, that is in a place that people can travel over (I've been through that way on many occasions)and man can access the area, but those are my thoughts.
Tim La Haye wrote a series of books (not the left behind series but Babylon rising) where an Archaeologist discovers various things that show the truth of the scripture in the lead up to the rapture, kind of as a proof. wouldn't it be amazing if one of those is that we find the real and 100% sure location of the birthplace of Mankind!
