Where Is The Garden of Eden?

There has always been speculation the real physical Garden of Eden existed (past tense) somewhere within the Fertile Crescent, or perhaps elsewhere. I prefer an allegorical interpretation of God's message because it is very relevant to the 21st century. My reasoning is thus: We have the means and intelligence to make our earth a paradise. We also have the unfortunate potential of moral failure. If we yield to the temptation of excess and ignore the spiritual rules of the Cosmos, we risk bringing about our own demise through disease, conflict and famine.

Thus we may ponder: Is this unique planet meant to be our garden of Eden? Will moral failure lead to eviction? Will we be the cause of our own demise?
