Default Garden of Eden was in Another Universe

I have a theory that the Garden of Eden wasn't on Earth where described (around the tigris and euphrates river) but was in another universe or another dimension, or something like that. Is that heretical?

Also another "theory" is that those of us who find ourselves on earth, it's because when our soul was created in this parallel universe, we chose to sin, so got sent here to be born as babies into this messed-up time-space place. Just a theory, prolly not acceptable. I like to theorize

If your basis for your "theories" is anything other than Catholic teaching, then yes, you might be bordering on heresy.

Peace,

Lightbulb Re: Garden of Eden was in Another Universe

Well I don't recall the bible saying, the day before the first day God created a parallel universe. Maybe I'm wrong

I think your theory would be compatable with mormonism, hope you don't go down that path. Stay strong stay Catholic.

When you turn away from truth you are in error. When you teach error as truth you commit heresy.

Please cite chapter and verse of the papal encyclical

(Unless... this is your own PERSONAL interpretation of scripture?)
