The book I read to research this post was From The Ashes Of Angels by Andrew Collins which is a very good book which I bought from Amazon. This book is the culmination of years of research into biblical history and in particular whether there was a race of people regarded as angels that walked among men. This time scale would have roughly coincided with the cataclysm that ended the last ice age about 9,600 years ago. This race had wings, white skin and were very tall. They mated with human women and this may have gone a long way into dissolving the bloodline. Atlantis may have coincidently existed at this time. Also modern day Kurdistan which is part of Iraq may have been where the Garden Of Eden and although nowadays is probably rather barren, at one time the weather cycles were different. Even the Sahara area was once the site of lush vegetation. Andrew tends to write books like this about what may or may not have happened with regard to ancient and biblical history. His books are interesting and I did enjoy this book.
