A Brief History of Man


In summary, I will explain to you the history of man and what has happened in the last million years, based on what we are told in the Urantia Book.

Before I begin to explain the evolutionary timeline, let me preface this story by stating something extremely relevant to the story. Beings very much like ourselves evolve on millions of worlds; we are not an exception. Higher spirit beings, those whom we will get to know when we resurrect – and there is no better way to say it – are behind the scenes and have been guiding us along our evolutionary path since the beginning.

From Psalms 23 “what is Man that you would give mind to him?” Men, or ascending human personality has great value to God, we are a unique order of sonship because we extend the greatest range of growth, srtating out as we do with flesh and bones, but with spirit, the actual fragment of the Father, giving us soul ascension potential.

We are children of the Most High, and God really does rule in our hearts, but so to do his divine sons also minister to our personal growth and ascension, just as surely as we administer to the growth and development of our own children.

So when I tell you the timeline, bear this in mind that we are not a cosmic accident, and there is a plan; indeed the ultimate plan is for continued spiritual and intellectual growth of the Supreme;

Here is the truncated Urantia Book narrative.

About a million years ago the first two real humans were born, twins, a boy and girl. Their parents were highly evolved offshoots of a primate tribe, a mid-mammal group superior to other tribes in Afghanistan. Of this pair of humans, the offspring of this superior mid-mammal group, the twins stood completely upright and were slightly taller than their parents, had opposable thumbs, were virtually hairless; they could speak and express basic human emotions of a higher level than those of their fellows, and they had one significant talent that had never appeared before in the human experience on earth – they could worship; they could penetrate mental activity to those levels bordering on prayer, and this led to a deliberate decision to leave their tribe.

It was subsequent to this decision to flee that Andon and Fonta, woukd establish the first human tribe on earth; they would become the Andonites, as they were called by the Urantia Book revelators, Andon and Fonta, the first truly male and female humans.

Today, our scientists call them the Denisovans.

The Andonites migrated Northward ,and for about 250,000 years quickly spread over most of Asia and Eastern Europe. This rigorous and sometimes deadly climate forced invention; managing fire, cooking better food, staying warm and giving them an advantage over other beasts of the realm. The Andonites were the first cave artists and this is why we see remnants of this species in Siberia and other northern regions of Europe. The descendants of the Andonites find echo in the indigenous groups of the extreme northern region, sometimes referred to as the Eskimo.

About 250,000 years ago, in a region of Northwest India near the Sivalik Valley, arose another more advanced group of humans, the Neanderthals, a robust and slightly more gregarious group of humans who roamed far and wide over all of Asia, even down to Africa and especially in Europe, as these hunters spread and expanded for half a century, making them the more dominant strain of human than the Andonites, who had, by then, pretty much wiped out the former previous tribes of mid-mammals.

It truly was survival of the fittest during the first half million years of human existence on our world. But the Andonites and Neanderthal were not bitter enemies, which explains why there is a strong mixture of DNA between the Denisovans and the later appearing Neanderthaers.

The Neanderthalers were stagnant in intellectual and moral development. This is key to understanding the importance of evolution. Those behind the scenes can sometimes manipulate conditions, environmental or otherwise, to influence human progress. God wasn’t done trying to make a better kind of human, something more spiritual and less animalistic, something less brutal and more insughtful towards meanings and value. After 250,000 years, the Neandethalers were stagnate, and it was at this time that a new variant of the human soecies appeared: The Sangik colored race.

Born also in Northwest India, the Neanderthal had met their match. These colored races were more agile, cunning, collective and fierce. The communication skills between the Sangiks gave them the superior advantage, and weaponry use among the Sangiks vastly improved, plus the use of horses also made them better warriors than their Neanderthal cousins, and for a time, there was admixture among them even as the Neanderthal were absorbed and diminished in number.

The Sangiks come down to us as distinct colored peoples, they are the true homo-sapien. And because they bore inherited traits of skin tone, the revelators tell us there existed among the Sangiks, a red, blue, yellow, orange, Indigo and green group, and as they grew in number, animosity began to develop, which led to each tribe eventually migrating apart and developing distinct cultures in different regions of the world. This migration continue unabated from about 500,000 years ago down through that previous Ice Age, about 50,000 years ago.

This migration and expansion has been underway for 400,000 years, and this is why we have Indigo in Africa, Yellow in Asia, Red in America and what is now considered white, but was once more a blueish hue hundreds of thousands of years ago, dominant in Europe as well as in western Asia, north of the Caspian Sea region, down through Turkey and into Mesopotamia.

The various brown races of today are an admixture of some red, yellow, blue and indigo intermingling during the early periods prior to the migrations. The green and orange tribes fought incessantly along the northern Africa region until their remnants were absorbed into the Indigo race.

The significant addition of an introduced race came approximately 40,000 years ago when the “Heavens” sent to us the revelation of Adam and Eve, the violet race, and this is about the time that the very first records began to be written in th eanals of early human history. Many, if not all of those ancient alien mysteries, the fabled Atlantis, the Greek God myths, the various structures you see around the world, all are either the influence of, or a testament to, this great one-time race that came to our world with the specific purpose to advance our species, to uplift and care for us, which found its genesis 40,000 years ago when the Adamic race appeared.

It took about about 25,000 years for their biological and cultural influence to take root, but we all have a little bit of Adam in us, and a little bit of Eve, too. Some, but not much of their story is preserved in a half a dozen traditions and religions, the most well known, of course, is the story of Genesis in the Bible. Much of Hebrew early history also stems from the early fractured account of Adam’s progeny who, for thousands of years, spread across the globe mating and improving the intellectual and religious status of human beings, even as far as to South America.

We are the end result of almost a million years of human evolution – periodic variants injected along the way by nature’s guiding hand, and also the result of Humanity 2.0, when Adam and Even were given to us to upgrade our ability to think, pray and become more spiritually cognizant as evolutionary mortals of the realm.

What’s the moral of this story? That we are not alone and we are cared for by design. We are not a cosmic accident, and growth is a characteristic of a living, loving and purposeful universe.
