This is NOT what the Bible says. The Tigris and Euphrates rivers were not
erased by the Flood (Gen. 2:14). Moses undertook to geographically locate
the Garden of Eden for his readers, mentioning geographical features of
his day (and even minerals occurring in certain areas), a project that
would have been an exercise in futility if the Flood had completely
altered the surface of the globe.
