The city of gold was called "Cibola." "El Dorado" means "The Guilded One," as in one who is covered with gold, and refers to a person, not a place.

El Dorado was searched for in South America by Raleigh. Reports came to Coronado that seven cities of gold were to be found in Cibola in North America. The clue did not specify which location, so either El Dorado or Cibola should be accepted. (And for that matter, Quivira, as well.)

If you mean covered in gold, the word you're looking for is "gilded", not "guilded". A guild is a group of people of similar trade, gild is like a thin layer of gold on something. If you're trying to correct other people's quizzes, I suggest checking yourself first. :)

I demand that you remove the Garden of Eden from this quiz. While there's no undeniable proof that God, Adam, Eve, or the Garden of Eden ever existed, there's also no absolute degree of certainty they never did. To a large portion of the population, the Garden of Eden is neither mythological nor fictitious, and I guarantee that I won't be the only one leaving a comment like this, should that answer remain. While I understand that JetPunk lets anyone make their own quiz (no matter how debatable it may be), if a quiz ends up being featured on the homepage, it should at least be agreeable to the religious extent. I simply don't believe a website such as this should be biased toward atheism and advertise it. I apologize if my comments in any way caused offense, but I'm only speaking what I believe to be civilly right and just. I know there are other people who feel the same way I do about these matters, and I merely wanted to get that out.

Mythology does not mean fiction, the Garden of Eden is very mythological in fact, it is from a traditional story from the Bible. Myths are simply stories, they can be true or false. The Garden of Eden is from Christian mythology. And I am a Christian. No offense was meant by this quiz and none is taken by me.

Actually, the dictionary definition of "mythology" is "a collection of myths, esp. one belonging to a religious or cultural tradition." That leads us to the definition of "myth," which means "a widely held but false belief or idea." I confirmed this before leaving my first comment here, so I didn't have to look back and regret my post due to a communication error. I still stand by my first comment, and will continue to, unless I can be proven wrong.

The Garden of Eden story is a "myth" in the sense of: "A traditional, typically ancient story dealing with supernatural beings, ancestors, or heroes that serves as a fundamental type in the worldview of a people". Many Christians view Eden as mythological in that sense (not in the sense of a false belief or a fiction), and it doesn't bear on their view of the divinity of Jesus whatsoever. You don't have to be an atheist to put Eden in this list.

I understand all your points. But we must reach a consensus. As a fellow human beings and brothers & sister of the human race, we must respect each other's personal beliefs. But in relating to the question, fiction means ' information or events that are not factual, but rather, imaginary and theoretical'. Remember that the garden of Eden is not proven by science which is currently the tool used by the world for explanations. Not saying that it completely does not exist, but it is currently merely theoretical. We do not know for sure. Therefore it is safe to assume that Eden is fictional. Respect

Just quickly, to say you don't believe in the Garden of Eden and to be a Christian doesn't make you a hypocrite. Many people follow religious doctrines understanding that many/some stories are allegorical or metaphors and aren't necessarily strict and litigious text. The very nature of the written word is subjective and susceptible to misunderstandings, that along with the evolution of language and problems in translation has led to some who follow a religion which relies on religious text to not take every word literally. There is no one way to follow religion, we often think of religion in regards to the Abrahamics but some have taken the alternative approach and follow it as a philosophy like Sikhism or Hinduism rather than as a purely faith and religious following. Thus the Quran, Torah, Bible don't 'define' all followers of the respective faiths. (Also I'm agnostic for those thinking I'm just trying to defend 'my beliefs')

Christians are really persecuted quite terribly in Muslim and Communist nations, and there is definite proof of it.

But I agree with you; the maker of this quiz doesn't need to change anything because they're not actually persecuting any person of any religion by categorising Eden as mythological. It's their choice and their belief, and I respect that.

It's common to count Cleveland twice as his terms were not consecutive. You could say that non-incumbent Christians have been elected to the office of president 44 times.

The Garden of Eden is certainly a myth. If you're asking that it be removed simply because it's logically impossible to prove a negative, then we should remove all of the questions from this quiz and just have a blank one. After all, maybe Mordor really does exist on a distant planet in some alternate universe and Tolkien wrote about it because he was being spoken to by an invisible divine force! It can't be disproven.

Although you do make an excellent point, there are no confirmed writings that claim Neverland, Middle Earth, and Narnia were actual places. All of those were written specifically because they were intended to be fictional places. Not only that, but the writers freely admit to making those locations up. However, the Bible was written by several different authors from different standpoints, all proposing that God was real; therefore, they also must've had reason to believe the Garden of Eden existed as well. Out of all the answers listed, the Garden of Eden was the only one to be regarded as a true place (as far as I know). Not only that, but Jesus was indeed a true person; there's no other way He could've accomplished what He'd done if God didn't grant Him the necessary ability to do so. In the end, we know if God existed, so did the Garden of Eden. No one ever intended to use the Garden of Eden as a location in a novel.

Technically, Middle Earth existed before the continent shift on Planet Earth (Atlantis is actually the lost city of Numenor) according to Tolkien, so Mordor wouldn't actually be located in "Some other universe". And he wasn't being spoken to any invisible divine force other than his own imagination. Maybe if you took the time to understand a little bit more about this completely unimportant thing that I get really frustrated about when other people don't understand it as much as I do, you'd actually be a person worth talking to. *sarcasm alert*

There are many people who believed in the existence of Atlantis, Elysium, El Dorado, Asgard, and Valhalla.

If reality is a matter of a belief's popularity when exactly did Christianity start becoming true? I assume by your logic it was false when it was Jesus and his disciples. And probably still false for the next couple hundred years while Christians actually were a persecuted minority. (and at the time, of course, by your popularity = truth paradigm, the gods of Roman pantheism were all real) I guess after Emperor Constantine converted and forced the empire to follow suit in the 4th Century... was that when Christianity finally became true? I'm not trying to pander to or insult anyone I only care about what's true and what's not. I couldn't care less how many people believe in something; if it's not true I'll still say it. Penn Gilette has it right, I think. To NOT tell someone they are wrong when they are... THAT is disrespectful and condescending. It means you think they need to be sheltered from the truth.

"Atheism" and "reality" are not synonymous. The fact that a perfect garden ever existed in which the first two Human beings lived has been conclusively disporoven by paleontology and genetics.

We have a right to not have the world of reality and science altered to reflect your mythology. Most of it is completely absurd to us--but we don't demand you alter your beliefs to reflect ours. Go make ten websites about the Garden of Eden and snakes and apples if YOU wish. It's called freedom. Learn about it. I find your religion's attempts to limit OUR knowledge and beliefs with pressure tactics and extortion highly offensive. Btw, the theme of the Garden of Eden is a God that demands we live in ignorance. That alone should make anyone pause. Christianity was not even the first religion to come up with a snake who brings knowledge against the god's orders. It was copied from older faiths along with the virgin birth etc.

Aethus: Christianity is not even close to being the 2nd-oldest religion in the world. Even if you include Judaism as part of Christianity, and it probably shouldn't be, but even if we allow that it is and the birth of Christianity stretches back to the almost-assuredly-mythical Abraham and his covenant with "yahweh"... EVEN THEN Christianity is FAR from the 2nd-oldest religion in the world. It's not even close. If you're going to base your argument on the obviously absurd creation story of Eden and then state that Adam was the first Christian... well then you have to come up with a valid reason to discount the creation myths of every other religion past and present because almost all of them have one. You believing in something is neither evidence nor an argument.

Christianity is the oldest or second-oldest religion? That's... quite simply a bizarre statement.

If I may, Christianity can be compared to all past mythologies and other religions today. Not in terms of belief, but in terms of faith.

Oddly enough, I was expecting a comment like this to be posted within a day of this debate. I'd just like to say I'm not "upset" about the fact that the Garden of Eden was listed, nor about anything else pertaining to this quiz. I just believe it's civilly wrong to go right out and say (on a fully-public website, nonetheless) that Christianity is a hoax without any evidence to back up that claim. I wouldn't be concerned if the Garden of Eden fell under the "supposedly mythical" category, or if someone explained that it was fictional according to atheism; the problem here is that it's specifically called an unreal place. Overall, I'm not upset; I just have a strong viewpoint on this issue.

I didn't make the quiz, but I do not believe that considering the Garden of Eden to be mythical means one is repudiating ALL of Judeo-Christian theology (remember, the Garden of Eden is in the Old Testament, and therefore a part of Judaism and not just Christianity). I for instance know very religious people who do not look on all parts of the Bible with the same intensity (as do most, as very few Christians and Jews are OK with human slavery, which is everywhere in the Bible) and consider things, like the Tower of Babel for instance, go be sort of folklore. They try to find the spirit of the Bible, and not to take each part litterally.

The bible was written hundreds of years after christ was alive, and thousands of years if you're talking about the garden of eden, so surely the people writing it would have been guessing and would have got a lot of the information wrong. Taking everything in the bible as fact is like reading Homer and taking everything in that for fact. The bible isn't supposed to be taken literally, especially in modern time when so much has changed in the past 2000 years, it is supposed to be used as a moral compass and guideline for you to act like a good person in your life. Not blindly follow some 2000 year old writing. All of this and the fact that the myth of the garden of eden came from a time around 70,000 years ago when the Toba eruption killed 90% of humans. This allows us to trace our ancestry to around 1000 humans which survived, which is much more likely than 2 humans, and this also means we're not all inbred.

You are suggesting a "prior restraint" all be it voluntary. That is unconstitutionmal in the U.S. Unless you can prove that extreme violence or damage to the country's safety will result, no one here ever must limit their speech before having to prove what they say is factual. The burden of proof would be on you, my dear, to prove they are wrong. You'd have to prove the Garden of Eden is real, not vice versa. That is the significance of the freedom of speech our forefathers gave to us! Other countries do not limit prior restraints. Don't suggest that an internet game be the first place to dissolve that freedom (with the exception of "clear and present danger" to the country and its people excepted by the Supreme Court for the last century).

Unless you believe in bebn123's narrow, fundamentalist, completely scientifically discredited version of christianity, you're not a christian at all, apparently. Seriously, have you ever left your little backwards community? I have hundreds of christian friends, none of whom think the world was created 6.000 years ago. In fact, the vast majority of christians don't believe that, or that the garden of Eden was a real place, or that the bible is meant to be taken literally, or that it is actually the word of god (which the bible never claims). You should first sort out your story with actual, smart christians (aka. the majority of christians), and when you're done with that, I'm volunteering to be the first Atheist to explain to you why I still don't care.

They can't all be right at the same time because some popular beliefs contradict one another. Even if you concede this point and want to say that what matters is how many people believe, and that truth is purely democratic... well... 1800 years ago Christians were a tiny minority. So.... at that time... would you say Christianity was false? It only became true after Constantine co-opted it, perverted it, basically made it a Roman religion and forced it upon the whole empire? In the future, should the number of Muslims grow more numerous than the number of Christians in the world as they are likely to given birth rates... is that going to make Islam more correct than Christianity?

Kal: Why is Eden on this quiz? Public opinion doesn't agree with it anywhere close to the other answers, and the actual truth is not as clear as anyone thinks. It would be shockingly arrogant for someone to claim that Eden should be on the quiz just because they're atheistic, or that it shouldn't because they're Christian. From what I see in the comments, about half of people here are Christian and about half are atheistic. Sure, maybe it's a bit off, but better to annoy no one than a third of earth's population, right? In the end, I'm not defining the correctness of a religion (or lack of religion) by public opinion.

@bebn: The people who I know who are religious might take offense at your way of looking at them. You are not the final arbiter of religion. They do not believe the Bible is the work of God, but of men, and therefore they find it imperfect, as man is imperfect. They are devoted Christians and Jews, but don't follow everything in the Bible, as I'm sure you don't. There are passages that speak of killing those who don't honor the Sabbath, and I have a feeling (or at least I HOPE) that you're not doing that.

While I understand that this comment was meant to be a joke, what you say is true: there is no evidence that the Greco-Roman pantheon of gods and goddesses does not exist. For all we know, the ancient Greeks and Romans could have had it right all along. Now, while I choose to stick to my Christian faith, I would never tell anyone else that their ideas were wrong or stupid. How can we know until after we're dead? And on that note, why do we fight about religion and belittle each other over it, since there is no way to prove who is right or wrong in this life?

The Bible wasn't written at Nicaea. It was basically a meeting of the various early Christian community leaders to try and come up with some sort of consensus about the faith.

One thing the early church leaders wanted to do at Nicaea was choose which books should and should not be considered canon. The books were already all written before the meeting took place.

The Hobbiton site in Matamata is the actual filming site from all six of the LOTR/Hobbit movies. It wasn't created as a tourist destination. In fact, the contract that Peter Jackson signed w/the owner of the land (a sheep farmer) specified that after the LOTR movies were complete, the property was to be restored. Most of the set was bulldozed except for the hilly end, as it had rained heavily that year & the earth was too unstable for the dozer to go in. By the time the ground had dried out, a company called Red Carpet Tours had convinced the owner to let LOTR fans visit what remained of the set. It was restored to how it looked for the LOTR movies when the Hobbit movies were green lighted. I visited the Hobbiton set in 2006, before restoration for the Hobbit movies, w/Red Carpet Tours, & have a picture of my daughter (8 at the time & our own "hobbit" for the tour) looking out of the foyer window of Bag End.

The Garden of Eden can not be compared to Asgard or Valhalla. The Bible gives us the pre-flood location of Eden, whereas Asgard is just over the rainbow. The Bible tells exactly which rivers Eden flowed between prior to a worldwide flood. It mentions the Tigris, and Euphrates.

By your logic then we should remove Olympus too, because that's an actual mountain in Greece. The tallest, in fact. Just because some ancient scribes wrote that Eden was a garden between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers doesn't mean it was actually there or ever actually existed. Paper doesn't refuse ink if it spells out lies. If you want Eden off this list then by all means, go and prove, beyond reasonable doubt via scientifically verifiable evidence, that Eden existed. Because that's how the burden of proof works. And before you say it, the Bible is a claim of events, not evidence for said events. Like testimony in a court of law, it means nothing if the evidence doesn't support it. If nothing else, the story of the whole human race spawning from the incestuous relationship between a man and his morphed rib, has been proven false by genetics.

And, by the way, even if everything else in the bible had been proven absolutely true (which is laughable, but I've seen so many people make that argument), you would STILL have to prove the garden of Eden story with actual specific arguments and evidence, and also deal with the scientific evidence (mainly genetics, but lots of others) that proves that there have never been just two Human beings, no matter when, no matter where.

All human beings on Earth share a common descent from a single male ancestor and single female ancestor... this actually has been demonstrated through science. Those two ancestors just happened to live thousands of years apart. So.. even though they've been named Adam and Eve, probably not the same couple of hominids you may be thinking of...

Going back further than that, the most popular theory of abiogenesis is that it happened only once in Earth history (or happened many times but the other times it didn't take root in the same way), and that every living organism on the planet is descended from the same self-replicating organic molecule, billions of years ago. So, if that's right (there are competing theories), then... after that molecule self-replicated once by splitting off some of its own matter (let's call it a rib?).. then there would have been precisely two "living" things on Earth. Though not exactly human. And we would have descended from those two things.

"The Bible tells exactly which rivers Eden flowed between prior to a worldwide flood. It mentions the Tigris, and Euphrates." The Greek gods lived on Mt. Olympus. Mt.

"Did you even consider when writing your comment that maybe, just maybe, they could have named the new rivers after rivers which previously existed?"

Everyone knows the religion of a country is defined by its current, temporary, everyone-will-forget-about-them-in-a-century-or-two leader. Right?

Aesthus: now... *that's* a strawman argument. Though we could have an argument about the religion of the United States and you would lose... that's not what I was saying and you've missed the point.

I'm curious. How does one question on one quiz make this website an advertiser of Atheism? I've seen no ads on this site at all, let alone any for Atheism. And the numerous quizzes about the Bible and Christianity don't make this a Christian website either. Do you take offense to the Harry Potter quizzes "promoting witchcraft" as well?

As one of those who believes every word of the Bible, I think the initial comment is out of line. That kind of attitude is what gives Christians a bad name. The self-righteousness was palpable. I believe the Garden of Eden existed. I am not at all surprised or offended that a huge portion of the world's population doesn't agree with me. kalbahamut, you always seem to have the best comments on this site. :)

Second time around. Got GOT. I nearly created a new sitcom by misspelling the mythical land of gold as Ed Lorado, whom I think of as an incompetent Sam Spade, possibly played by Andy Richter.

Love this quiz! But I would argue that panem isn't exactly the same as the other places on the quiz since its an alternate version of america in the future. just a throught. also i wouldn't describe the elysian fields as heaven. it was considered the ideal afterlife but you could only get there my dying honorably in battle.

I loved the first comment, "I demand", lol. Most people in the world don't believe in Christianity. So the majority would agree that Eden is a myth.

There are 2.2 billion Christians and 1.8 billion Muslims in the world. 4 billion is more than half of 7.3 billion. So the majority would agree that Eden is a real place, since both of these are Abrahamic religions.

Maybe you are right and those 4 billion people do believe in the Biblical garden of Eden. If so then that majority would be wrong.

The majority used to believe that the Solar system is geocentric. They were wrong.

The majority is not always wrong. The majority now think the earth is round. They are right. The point is that the majority of people do not believe that Eden is a myth, which was what @noodles seemed to be saying.

There are very few things, outside of religion and opinion, that more than half of earth's population believe that are false. And your original comment was talking about how the majority's opinion should be used, so...yeah, I think the word hypocritical would be appropriate under the circumstances.

Really, kal? I mean that no religion is proven, and if you weren't trying to read idiocy into my words, you wouldn't see that. But returning to the point, no religion is believed by a majority of the world, so it's impossible for any one religion to be both true and believed by a majority of earth's population.

I love the audacity that the ancient Greeks had in naming Olympus as the dwelling place of the gods. As a real place, they were just daring people to not even try to go up there. "Mommy, where does Zeus live?" "Oh, honey, he lives over there. Do NOT go over there. Sweet dreams."

Yikes... the cringe-worthy things you see about yourself five years later. Look. I understand (now, anyway) mythological is not the same as fictional, so yeah, I admit I majorly jumped the gun assuming this quiz was implying "Christianity is a hoax." And yes, I also admit that back then I was way more close-minded and defensive about the issue than I am now, and my response to Hdny42 was overall unnecessary and may have come off as kind of ignorant or just kind of dumb. But holy crap, people. Nowhere in there did I say anything about denying Christianity guaranteeing you a one-way trip to Hell, or if you don't 100% agree with my religious beliefs, you're not really Christian. If your religious beliefs vary? That's fine. If you disagree with me that calling the Garden of Eden completely fictional is objectionable (even though I already said I realize that's not what this quiz is doing)? That's fine. But nothing in my comment is worth getting all up in arms about. Calm. Down.

It took several years for me to admit I was wrong about my faith-based ideas as well and looking back at some of the things I wrote then it sometimes seems as though they were written by a different person. Be glad that you are capable of feeling that cringe. It's not something to be embarrassed about it means you are capable of self-reflection.

You hit the nail on the head there. Even in regards to topics outside of religion, I used to be pretty close-minded as a kid, and had a really tough time understanding how other people could possibly believe opinion X or view Y. Thankfully, time and experience eventually helped me break out of that mindset, so I'm so glad I actually have a reasonable amount of common sense and critical thinking ability now to keep me levelheaded.

All of us react when we feel our core beliefs are being challenged. As we acquire wisdom, hopefully we begin to realize we cannot change what others do or think, we can only change how we respond to them. I applaud your willingness to share your wiser self with us today.

All this religious commentary aside, Mount Olympus is an actual, factual place, so I question its inclusion here. There are those who may argue the residents were mythological, but as the quiz is about the land or location, it should be removed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Olympus
