Of Color


In previous articles we have focused on space and what is out there, but what about our own mysterious beginnings? There is so much we do not know about US, isn’t there?

What makes the Urantia Book unique is that it actually does tackle answering this information in Part 3, the Hisyory of our world.

For example, in Paper 64 on the Evolutionary Races of Color, we are told the six races, all coming from one unique family in India, produced offspring with differing skin tones, they were red, orange, yellow, blue, green and Indigo, and at the time of the appearance of this unique family, humanity was in the grips of an ensuing ice age, and this small group co ex-syed for a thousand years, landlocked, as it were along the southwest Asia Penninsula almost half a million years ago…

64:7.1 When the colored descendants of the Sangik family began to multiply, and as they sought opportunity for expansion into adjacent territory, the fifth glacier, the third of geologic count, was well advanced on its southern drift over Europe and Asia. These early colored races were extraordinarily tested by the rigors and hardships of the glacial age of their origin. This glacier was so extensive in Asia that for thousands of years migration to eastern Asia was cut off. And not until the later retreat of the Mediterranean Sea, consequent upon the elevation of Arabia, was it possible for them to reach Africa.

64:7.2 Thus it was that for almost one hundred thousand years these Sangik peoples spread out around the foothills and mingled together more or less, notwithstanding the peculiar but natural antipathy which early manifested itself between the different races.

We also learn that as the ice age retreated and with the elevation of the Arabian Pennisula, these Sangkins began to spread out and migrate to differing parts of the earth, with Blue man heading north to Eastern and Central Eruope, The Red and Yellow headed east to overtake Asia, while the Green, Orange and Indigo took a western path taking over the coastlines of the northern African Coast, and down along the Nile deep into the Heart of Africa, where the Indigo tribes settled foe the next several thousand years…

Here is how the book summarizes the migration of the colored races from India…

64:7.16 As the Sangik migrations draw to a close, the green and orange races are gone, the red man holds North America, the yellow man eastern Asia, the blue man Europe, and the indigo race has gravitated to Africa. India harbors a blend of the secondary Sangik races, and the brown man, a blend of the red and yellow, holds the islands off the Asiatic coast. An amalgamated race of rather superior potential occupies the highlands of South America. The purer Andonites live in the extreme northern regions of Europe and in Iceland, Greenland, and northeastern North America.

But what about the Neandertha, how do they fit into the genetic soup?

So about 400,000 years ago, as the glacial age ends and migration becomes possible, the Blue man, in his expansion to Europe, confronts the then existent Neanderthal…

64:7.9 In Europe they soon encountered the Neanderthal descendants of their early and common ancestor, Andon. These older European Neanderthalers had been driven south and east by the glacier and thus were in position quickly to encounter and absorb their invading cousins of the Sangik tribes.

64:7.10 In general and to start with, the Sangik tribes were more intelligent than, and in most ways far superior to, the deteriorated descendants of the early Andonic plainsmen; and the mingling of these Sangik tribes with the Neanderthal peoples led to the immediate improvement of the Neanderthals. It was this infusion of Sangik blood, more especially that of the blue man, which produced that marked improvement in the Neanderthal peoples exhibited by the successive waves of increasingly intelligent tribes that swept over Europe from the east.

64:7.11 During the following interglacial period this new Neanderthal race extended from England to India. The remnant of the blue race left in the old Persian peninsula later amalgamated with certain others, primarily the yellow; and the resultant blend, subsequently somewhat upstepped by the later violet race of Adam, has persisted as the swarthy nomadic tribes of modern Arabs.

There’s more to this story ti be sure…but you get a much appreciation of just how much history there is to our history.

By the way, if you look up ‘race’ on Wikipedia or in Encyclopedia Britannica, Science is non committal to the idea of there being races at all, they believe environment produced market differences in skin tone, and the idea of being “different races” is now considered racist…

We here at Urantia Radio believe truth about origins should always be explored, and the notion of differing races comes with a purpose, which the Urantia Book addresses head on:

64:6.30 There are many good and sufficient reasons for the plan of evolving either three or six colored races on the worlds of space. Though Urantia mortals may not be in a position fully to appreciate all of these reasons, we would call attention to the following:

1. Variety is indispensable to opportunity for the wide functioning of natural selection, differential survival of superior strains.
2. Stronger and better races are to be had from the interbreeding of diverse peoples when these different races are carriers of superior inheritance factors. And the Urantia races would have benefited by such an early amalgamation provided such a conjoint people could have been subsequently effectively upstepped by a thoroughgoing admixture with the superior Adamic stock. The attempt to execute such an experiment on Urantia under present racial conditions would be highly disastrous.
3. Competition is healthfully stimulated by diversification of races.
4. Differences in status of the races and of groups within each race are essential to the development of human tolerance and altruism.

THESE IDEAS MIGHT BE COUNTER TO POPULAR CONSIDERATIONS, PRIMARiLY BECAUSE WE ARE JUST NOW EXITING A LONG PERIOD OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION BETWEEN THE RACES, BUT NO DOUBT FUTURE READERS MAY COME TO UNDERSTAND THE DIVINE WISDOM IN HAVING VARIETY WITHIN THE HUMAN SPECIES…

SO WHAT ABOUT OTHER IDEAS ABOUT THINGS LIKE A UNIVERSAL FLOOD THAT DESTROYED HUMANITY BECAUSE OF HIS WICKEDNESS, DID IT REALLY HAPPEN?

78:7.4 The traditions of a time when water covered the whole of the earth’s surface are universal. Many races harbor the story of a world-wide flood some time during past ages. The Biblical story of Noah, the ark, and the flood is an invention of the Hebrew priesthood during the Babylonian captivity. There has never been a universal flood since life was established on Urantia. The only time the surface of the earth was completely covered by water was during those Archeozoic ages before the land had begun to appear.

HOWEVER, THERE IS THIS PASSAGE THAT DESCRIBES A FLOOD THAT DID TAKE PLACE LONG BEFORE RECORDED HISTORY THAT EVEN TODAY’S GEOLOGISTS ARE STILL DEBATING…

With the retreat of the northern ice fields the water-laden winds from the west shifted to the north, gradually turning the great open pasture regions of Sahara into a barren desert. This drought dispersed the smaller-statured brunets, dark-eyed but long-headed dwellers of the great Sahara plateau.

80:2.2 The purer indigo elements moved southward to the forests of central Africa, where they have ever since remained. The more mixed groups spread out in three directions: The superior tribes to the west migrated to Spain and thence to adjacent parts of Europe, forming the nucleus of the later Mediterranean long-headed brunet races. The least progressive division to the east of the Sahara plateau migrated to Arabia and thence through northern Mesopotamia and India to faraway Ceylon. The central group moved north and east to the Nile valley and into Palestine.

80:2.3 It is this secondary Sangik substratum that suggests a certain degree of kinship among the modern peoples scattered from the Deccan through Iran, Mesopotamia, and along both shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

80:2.4 About the time of these climatic changes in Africa, England separated from the continent, and Denmark arose from the sea, while the isthmus of Gibraltar, protecting the western basin of the Mediterranean, gave way as the result of an earthquake, quickly raising this inland lake to the level of the Atlantic Ocean. Presently the Sicilian land bridge submerged, creating one sea of the Mediterranean and connecting it with the Atlantic Ocean. This cataclysm of nature flooded scores of human settlements and occasioned the greatest loss of life by flood in all the world’s history. *

SO THERE WAS A GREAT FLOOD, BUT IT WAS DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGES, AND THE END OF THE LAST ICE AGE, AROUND 15,000 YEARS AFTER THE ADAM AND EVE AND THEIR PROGENY HAD STARTED TO MIGRATE FROM THE AREA WE KNOW TODAY AS IRAQ…

SO THERE IS A LOT WE HAVE UNPACKED, ABOUT RACE, OUR EARLY MIGRATION, HOW CHINA BECOME MOSTLY YELLOW, AND HOW THE RED MAN WAS PUSHED OUT INTO THE NORTH AMERICA SOME 80,00 YEARS AGO…AND IT STITCHES A HUMAN PICTURE TOGETHER THAT MAKES US MUCH MORE DIVERSE AND ACTIVE THAN WE CAN EVEN IMAGINE…

AND THIS IS WHY THE URANTIA BOOK IS CONSIDERED A REVELATION…A LITERAL TIME CAPSULE OF OUR EARLY BEGINNINGS NOW REVEALED…

THNK ABOUT THAT TH ENEXT TIME SOMEONE SHAKES YOUR HAND OR GOIVES YOU A KISS. IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE THAT CUSTOM GOES BACK A HALF A MILLION YEARS AND MAY HAVE BEEN TAIGHT TO US BY ANCIENT ALIENS…
