From what source did you think Eden was in Turkey? Just by following the outline of The Book of Genesis, it appears the Tigris and Euphrates would be linked to Eden. Southern Iraq is the real location of Eden. The Elysian Fields and Eden are two seperate places. The Elysian Fields are nowhere to be found in Mesopotamia. Besides, in the Garden of Eden, the Dead do not dwell, but only immortals, while the Elysian Fields hold the shadows of Mortals. It seems the opposite polarity of metaphysics. Even if they were real place names of geography, the Elysian Fields are more spread names Northwest of Eden. Also, these two terms are from two different cultures.
