To quote Sailhamer on page 32:
"The work of God recounted in Genesis 1:2-2:4a falls within a time
period of just one week."
Later in that paragraph he says:
"The "land" which the author has in mind is the land promised to
Israel (Genesis 15:18). It is there that God prepared the garden
of Eden ..."
In Israel? Sorry, the Tigris and Euphrates don't flow in the land of Canaan.
On the next page he says:
"Clear traces of human beings date back only about thirty thousand
years ago, appearing without any discernible antecedents, as if
they came from nowhere."
He may have made some points later in the book, but I didn't bother to read
much further after this faux pas.
