Ice Age Persian Gulf as Oasis the Garden of Eden Amid Desert Proposed by University of Birmingham’s Jeffrey Rose

Almost ten years ago, professor of archaeolgy Jeffrey Rose of the University of Birmingham (England) having discovered over sixty sites of well-built stone structures on the seafloor beneath the waves of the Persian Gulf posited it was the Garden of Eden, an oasis during the Ice Age amidst the surrounding desert. Ostensibly lending credence to his theory is that four rivers meet in the general vicinity of the Strait of Hormuz (the Persian Gulf’s outlet to the Indian Ocean), the Tigris and Euphrates upstream, and the Karun river from Iran and the Wadi Badin (it used to be a river) from northern Arabia, however, the Word says that the four rivers flowed outward away from one fountainhead, and the “oasis” was not that, it was merely the verdant Middle East during the Ice Age when twenty or thirty inches of rain fell per year rather than as now just a few.
