  1. Many cultures and religions have a paradise that is a sacred place. Often it is for those who have died, or it was once inhabited by man, who lost the right to be there. The Christian version of this paradise is described in Genesis:

    Genesis 2:8-15:

    “And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
    The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
    And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
    And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria.
    And the fourth river is Euphrates.
    And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden.”
