  1. My deep thought of the week: But if the Garden of Eden was located somewhere in present-day Iraq and we call creating Adam out of mud or whatever a virgin birth, Iraq has seen such a thing. Of course, if the “which” is referring to democracy, this theory won’t work – that’s really the only possible problem I can see with this theory.
