Most stories of human origin have been drawn from the imagination and surmise. These stories have been based on projections of the ancient inhabitants from Egypt and the Arab world. They gave differing versions of the origin of man or Adam, and referred to as Adam and Eve, who was also addressed as Amma Hauwa by a great form that sometimes has been spoken of as having a human form and sometimes is revered as being formless.
The name of this ultimate creative force is taken with great awe and respect. Episodes are drawn from the Epic of Gilgamesh, the Mesopotamian stories of the Enuma Elish and also parts of the mythical creatures like the Leviathan in the old Hebrew texts. God has been referred to as Elohim and even Yahweh to express the great feelings of worship that the ancient Hebrew texts according to the Lord of creation. Therefore, while the stories of creation can be traced to some small references in the ancient Hebrew and Mesopotamian, and tales the real story of creation that has been largely accepted is the one detailed in the Genesis.
Thus, while the versions of the origins have been interpreted over the centuries to have differing meanings, the roots of the stories have always arisen from the spatial land area that is called the Middle East in the current maps. It has been noted in history as the seat of great Mesopotamian civilization. The mention of the two rives Tigris and Euphrates as having emanated from Eden gives the linkage of the stories of the origins to the place where they have originated in the first place. The fertile land between the two rivers was a coveted place of settlement from those belonging to the ancient Mesopotamian civilization.
Even the scientific theories propounded by biologists, anthropologists and ancient historians have set the location of the origins of man to be this central part of the world. According to anthropologists the parts of Africa bordering on the Middle Eastern side were the birthplace of all humanity. It is from here that the great migrations took place and mankind went on to inhabit the entire world as we know it today.
