Keywords: Reading Into Beliefs Article Body: A provocative, new book by author a nd scholar Marc Mourier reveals hid den secrets of the Bible. In "The Garden of Eden: What Really Happened?" (Index Publishing, $14. 95), Mourier cites Biblical evidenc e that he believes proves that Eve was cloned from Adam. Mourier feels that Noah's flood was one way that God cleansed the Earth when the "A dam Experiment" went wrong. He also believes that Adam and Eve came af ter many civilizations, including D arwin's apes. Mourier says that more than 4,000 y ears of translations have changed t he original meaning of the Bible an d that people should be inquisitive and cautious about how the Bible h as been relayed. He claims that man y religious thinkers and theologian s have purposely created a power gr id to "cover up" ideas they do not want to openly disclose but "know a re true," such as the mission to cr eate Adam and Eve. Mourier also paints a picture of th e Garden of Eden that is very diffe rent from what is traditionally tau ght. He believes that the original Hebrew Bible shows that the Garden of Eden isn't a typical flowery gar den that one might picture. Instead , the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, the snake, and the apple are symbolic. For example, when Eve is described eating the fruit, Mourie r interprets this as acquiring scie ntific laboratory knowledge on how she was created. The book also gives Mourier's explan ations on: • "The secret, shocking and h idden revelations" of the Bible • Where the Bible shows "proo f of visitors from outside" • Religious "cover-ups" • Who specifically visited th e Garden of Eden and created Adam. "The Garden of Eden: What Really Ha ppened?" has drawn positive reviews from readers who fall on different sides of Mourier's research on Int elligent Design. It comes fully ill ustrated with what Mourier calls "e vidence that the ideas expressed in this book have secretly been known for centuries."
