What was once the Garden of Eden is now under a portion of the Persian Gulf
Various sites have been proposed as locations for the Garden of Eden, but none are in any way verifiable.
In the program a scientist using satellite imaging found the channels of all four of the rivers mentioned in Genesis 2:10-14 which Genesis says
pinpoints the location of the Garden of Eden!
The location of two of the rivers is entirely speculative, and the 'discovery' relies on distorting details of the story. But even if Eden were 'found', it would lend no more credence to the story in the Bible than finding New York would 'prove' Spider-Man is real.
Jeffro, you are thus correct in saying the flood story based on a local flood in Mesopotamia, but it was an emense flood.
It is only 'correct' to the extent that floods are a relatively common thing that happen to people who live near water. It isn't some kind of notable discovery that 'there was a flood' in a place where flooding could reasonably be expected to happen. Nor is it remarkable that flood stories around the world would include consistent themes of people surviving a flood in order to write about it, and the borrowed flood myth in Genesis is typical of such stories.
