    To which country did Adam and Eve belong?

    None. Countries did not exist when they were. Countries are artificial constructs created by culture and language.

    Depends how indepth you want to get into it. Keep in mind Eden was supposed to be somewhere near the tigris and euprates rivers so in Iraq. But I wouldn't say they are necessarily iraqi. If you follow the bible through the flood of Noah's time the entire face of the planet died and civilization had to restart with Noah and his family in Ararat in Turkey which would seem to indicate we all were one race. Further during the time of the tower of Babel when god confounded the languages of man thus separating us into different races and peoples seems to be the defining moment of seperation. But nations didn't really exist in the beginning.

    Assuming that they existed, I would say that the Garden of Eden was most likely in present-day Iraq at the convergence of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. However, I would be more inclined to believe that every story in the Bible prior to the Great Flood (Noah's time) took place on a spiritual plane and not on planet Earth. Thereafter, Adam's race (Noah's lineage) and the Hu'man race (meaning "creature or animal with the potential to become divine) interbred to become the single species we have today. I recommend reading "The Ark of Millions of Years."

    Iraq is the one being quoted in the Bible where Adam and Eve started their relationship as partners in life.

    They are belonged to the mind of the creator, the one who invented and told the story.
    And they are too belonged to the minds of the believers.

    The story of Adam, Eve and the Garden is an Eastern creation myth carried forward into Jewish oral history, written down following the Babylonian Captivity. The same story with variations is found in other traditions of what we in the West now call the Middle East. Its origin is probably the prehistoric Euphrates region.

    Even the language of Genesis reflects the mythological nature of the story. Adam, for instance, is Adama, "Earth man" or "man of the dust." The text says he was created both male and female, i.e. he is a symbolic figure of the creation of the human race, not a person who ever in fact lived. In the story, Eve came later, made from Adam's rib, a literary theme also found in other Eastern traditions.

    The Garden of Eden is likewise a symbolic representation of a mythologic time and place. It is a romanticized tribal memory of a preagrarian hunter/gatherer society. The Hebrews, or people who later became them, were surely somewhere at the time they lived off the fruits of the land without having to farm to have food or to be crowded into cities to survive, but as such societies in historical times show it could hardly have been paradise. Mythologies tend to weed out the bad and highlight the good of those generational memories, and so by the time the stories of Genesis were told in the way later written down so that we today can read them they had forgotten the disease, violence, periodic hunger, short lives, and brutality characteristic of such societies.

    None of this is intended to belittle the faiths of Jews, Christians (such as I), Muslims, or any others incorporating the Eden myth. It can be taken as a counter to a superficial reading of the Bible, which can be taken literally to no greater an extent than the similar records of other cultures. Adam, Eve, and the Garden of Eden never existed in fact. There is probably a germ of truth in the stories. There usually is in mythology. Exactly where that germ lies, however, is something we will never know.

    Since no country existed at the time of creation, that's a pretty dumb question to ask, but the answer is no country.

    As it is a scientific fact that we all walked out of Africa about 70,000 years ago, you have to say it was there. if you wonder why 70,000 years ago, it coincided with one of the great ice ages when a great deal of the earth's water was turned to ice, the sea levels fell and the red sea was dry so that they could slowly move towards the Indus valley. The middle east was not colonised until much later.
