[ Preface: I’ve been a student of the Urantia Book for nearly 30 years and I know the papers well. I have always known the day would come when archeological evidence was discovered which would corroborate what the papers have said all along – that human civilization goes back nearly a half million years or more. This most recent 1994 discovery out of Kurdistan pushes back the official date of human settlements another 6,000 years. But there will be many more digs unearthed in the next twenty years which will reveal even more far ancient human settlements. Historians will either throw up their hands in despair, find another profession, or re-discover their own deepest integrity and continually re-dedicate themselves to the publishing of the truth. There will be no other option. ]
Urantia Book: (901.2) 81:1.7 For thousands of years the descendants of Adam had grown wheat and barley, as improved in the Garden, throughout the highlands of the upper border of Mesopotamia. The descendants of Adam and Adamson here met, traded, and socially mingled.
The video covers a broad range of topics, but what’s noteworthy is the information about a recent archeological discovery in Kurdistan of remains of a civilization more than 12,000 years old, older than any Sumerian era site in the Mideast. This discovery pushes back the official date of the advent of human civilization by another 6,000 years, corroborating certain papers presented in The Urantia Book which reveal that the very first human settlement on earth was established nearly 500,000 years ago, in the far distant past of Mesopotamia, at the headwaters of the Persian Gulf.
The archeological discovery of a 13,000 year old human settlement in Kurdistan at Gobleki Tepe proves that our present understanding of the age of human civilization is in error and needs correcting as we discover more far-ancient ancient ruins. The discovery provides more hard scientific evidence that the origins of human civilization are much older than previously determined. History authors may find that they will be re-writing the history books repeatedly in the next 20 years as more significant archeological finds push back the dating system for the ancestry of modern human civilization.
Before I set forth this next paragraph please allow me to reassure readers that I am not only a Bible student as a modern Christian, but a passionate follower of science, astronomy, anthropology, and archeology as well. I find no conflict whatsoever between the study of science and the practice of religion and faith in God.
One of the most tragic mistakes made by modern Christendom has been the erroneous dating of the history of human civilization and the age of the earth based on Old Testament accounts of a six day creation via allegory set forth in the Book of Genesis. When allegorical writing is taken as literal fact misunderstanding begins. We no longer practice medicine as they did in the middle ages, using “blood-letting” as a primary medical treatment for ailments. Neither do we build homes as they did in 300 B.C. But many modern Christians are still trying to date the age of the earth and humanity by the records of the Old Testament, specifically the KJV Book of Genesis, and this error has created havoc in modern Christian churches, driving away millions of would-be Christians among bright scientifically minded young people, who simply know better than to believe that the earth was created in 6 days and is only 6,000 years old. The failure of many modern theologians to be able to discern the difference between allegory and recitations of fact has distorted understanding of the Book of Genesis, which still holds a treasure trove of real clues about the origins of human history, the times of Adam, and the times of his immediate descendents.
Likewise when literal fact is overlooked in the study of scripture, huge clues to our collective past are missed. The Book of Genesis alludes to ancient geographic locales of ancient human settlements that corroborate to modern locations:
“In the Book of Genesis, it is indicated that Eden is west of Assyria. Sure enough, this is where Gobekli is sited.
Likewise, biblical Eden is by four rivers, including the Tigris and Euphrates. And Gobekli lies between both of these.
In ancient Assyrian texts, there is mention of a ‘Beth Eden’ – a house of Eden. This minor kingdom was 50 miles from Gobekli Tepe.
Another book in the Old Testament talks of ‘the children of Eden which were in Thelasar’, a town in northern Syria, near Gobekli.
The very word ‘Eden’ comes from the Sumerian for ‘plain'; Gobekli lies on the plains of Harran.
Thus, when you put it all together, the evidence is persuasive. Gobekli Tepe is, indeed, a ‘temple in Eden’, built by our leisured and fortunate ancestors – people who had time to cultivate art, architecture and complex ritual, before the traumas of agriculture ruined their lifestyle, and devastated their paradise.”
Many now believe that the Gobleki Tepe temple site is the original Eden. It’s not, but it may well be a worship site for the descendants of Adam from the Second Garden. The Urantia Book contains many provocative passages wherein the time period in human history between 9,000 B.C. and 15,000 B.C. are discussed. One of those psaages sounds quite similar to the Gobleki Tepe locale:
(900.3) 81:1.1 For about thirty-five thousand years after the days of Adam, the cradle of civilization was in southwestern Asia, extending from the Nile valley eastward and slightly to the north across northern Arabia, through Mesopotamia, and on into Turkestan. And climate was the decisive factor in the establishment of civilization in that area.
(900.4) 81:1.2 It was the great climatic and geologic changes in northern Africa and western Asia that terminated the early migrations of the Adamites, barring them from Europe by the expanded Mediterranean and diverting the stream of migration north and east into Turkestan. By the time of the completion of these land elevations and associated climatic changes, about 15,000 B.C., civilization had settled down to a world-wide stalemate except for the cultural ferments and biologic reserves of the Andites still confined by mountains to the east in Asia and by the expanding forests in Europe to the west.
(900.5) 81:1.3 Climatic evolution is now about to accomplish what all other efforts had failed to do, that is, to compel Eurasian man to abandon hunting for the more advanced callings of herding and farming. Evolution may be slow, but it is terribly effective.
(900.6) 81:1.4 Since slaves were so generally employed by the earlier agriculturists, the farmer was formerly looked down on by both the hunter and the herder. For ages it was considered menial to till the soil; wherefore the idea that soil toil is a curse, whereas it is the greatest of all blessings. Even in the days of Cain and Abel the sacrifices of the pastoral life were held in greater esteem than the offerings of agriculture.
(900.7) 81:1.5 Man ordinarily evolved into a farmer from a hunter by transition through the era of the herder, and this was also true among the Andites, but more often the evolutionary coercion of climatic necessity would cause whole tribes to pass directly from hunters to successful farmers. But this phenomenon of passing immediately from hunting to agriculture only occurred in those regions where there was a high degree of race mixture with the violet stock.
(901.1) 81:1.6 The evolutionary peoples (notably the Chinese) early learned to plant seeds and to cultivate crops through observation of the sprouting of seeds accidentally moistened or which had been put in graves as food for the departed. But throughout southwest Asia, along the fertile river bottoms and adjacent plains, the Andites were carrying out the improved agricultural techniques inherited from their ancestors, who had made farming and gardening the chief pursuits within the boundaries of the second garden.
(901.2) 81:1.7 For thousands of years the descendants of Adam had grown wheat and barley, as improved in the Garden, throughout the highlands of the upper border of Mesopotamia. The descendants of Adam and Adamson here met, traded, and socially mingled.
(901.3) 81:1.8 It was these enforced changes in living conditions which caused such a large proportion of the human race to become omnivorous in dietetic practice. And the combination of the wheat, rice, and vegetable diet with the flesh of the herds marked a great forward step in the health and vigor of these ancient peoples.
I have believed all my life that the Urantia Book was given to humankind in an attempt to correct the many tragic errors of the past regarding human record-keeping and the actual age of human civilization. When the Royal Library of Alexandria was burned to the ground in the first century A.D. all records of the most ancient human settlements in the world, which originated in ancient Mesopotamia, going back nearly 500,000 years, disappeared for all time. This unprecedented tragedy in human record-keeping altered humanity’s understanding of their own deep history, and changed humanity’s future forever.
A sentient species can have no possible idea of where they are going if they forget or erase the records of where they have already been. But that is exactly what has happened in human history repeatedly in the past 500,000 years as periodic re-occurring cataclysms erased entire civilizations, inducing trauma and species-wide amnesia into the stream of human history, and altering our understanding of our own far distant past. The Urantia Book was given to humankind for many reasons, and just one of them involves restoring the most ancient records of the history of human settlements, racial origins and migrations, civilizations and the history and evolution of human religion. It was intended that the Urantia Papers would be studied and cross-referenced with traditional Christian theology in order to enlighten and uplift human understanding of both the ancient origins of humankind, and the evolution of human religion itself.
It was never intended that The Urantia Book would become an object of ridicule, fear, loathing and hatred by most modern Christian ministers, but, adding train wreck to tragedy, that is exactly what has happened. This must change or humanity will never make the transition from ignorance to intelligent understanding in time to stay abreast of the great swing of the Cosmos into the next era of Light and Life upon this world.
Discoveries continue to be made which corroborate facts presented in the Urantia papers. I believe that the hand of God is in many of these discoveries. Christian ministers make a fatal mistake when they demonize the historical material presented in the Urantia Papers and refuse to reconcile their study of the Christian Holy Bible with the Urantia Book. I have been cross-referencing my own KJV Holy Bible with the Urantia Book for more than 30 years now, It has been illuminating and exciting for me, to say the least.
I will continue to post scientific, astronomical, archeological, and anthropological material which both confirms and illuminates our understanding of traditional biblical scripture, and corroborates new facts about human history which are presented in the Urantia Book papers.

I always wondered why I held back from providing Ron Paul with any sort of news space on this blog… it was something deep in my gut. Now I know why. In the 21st century, with an overwhelming mountain of evidence from science, anthropology, human genetics, history, geology, the earth sciences, astronomy, and the like, there is really no room in the realm of politics for a President who still believes the world was created in 6 days. I am a Christian and have been all my life, but I knew when I was still a child that the erroneous fundamentalist Christian theology of a world which was literally created in “6 days of 24 hours each” was preposterous. [ I was eight years old at that time. They had not tested my IQ yet but I was reading 5th and 6th grade history in the second grade. ] My pastor could not or would not reply to my questions about this passage in Genesis, and so my journey for deeper truth began then and there. I already knew that my gut instinct was right – and that the ‘creation of the earth in 6 days” story which my pastor insisted I accept, was not to be taken as a literal statement, but as an allegorical one instead.
One must understand the concept of “allegorical and poetic references” in order to make an effort at understanding the text of the Holy Bible. Mike Huccabee had some intelligent things to say about this back in 2007:
So in looking at Genesis, a “day” to our Creator may be not only as “a thousand years” – it may also be as a literal eon of time, spanning millions or even billions of years as we reckon time on earth. Our reckoning of time out here on the southeast fringes of the Milky Way galaxy may be completely different from how the passage of time is reckoned at other locations in God‘s vast universe.
I accept with no problem the current scientific dating of our earth as being approximately 4.5 billion years old, and I have studied the account of the progressive epochs of earth’s development in The Urantia Book and find no conflict at all with my belief in a loving and all encompassing Creator whom I call the Heavenly Father. The “creation” of this world took place over long eons of time and the fossil and geology record clearly demonstrate this. How long will the stupidity of so called modern men keep this world lagging a half million years behind the spiritual progress of it’s sister spheres who are inhabited?
The present domain of our Creator Son [ who was known on this world as the Lord Jesus Christ ] presently includes more than 3 million inhabited planets. On not one of them do the sentient creatures harbor the childish belief that their own worlds were created in several days. Planet earth is sitting at the bottom of the class. Our world bears the dismal distinction of being one of the most intellectually and spiritually backward and retrograde worlds in the local creation. If this status does not change within the next one thousand years, it might be plowed under. It’s time for mortal men and women to “get with the program” and understand that the cultivation of life on an inhabited world is a high art of Divine antiquity, taking billions of years to complete and perfect. That’s one of the many hundreds of reasons why life is sacred and murder is an abomination to God.
I’m heart-broken to learn that Ron Paul questions the fundamental tenets of science and geology. I can’t support his candidacy and he won’t ever make it to the White House while harboring such backward and erroneous beliefs which are so false. Fundamentalism in all forms is destroying the spiritual and intellectual progress of this world. I hated that I even had to type this post. This question should have been settled one hundred years ago. The fact that it is still being debated at this late date in human history is an indication of how mythology rules over reason and sanity on planet earth. What a sad day for me to have to post this.
Here’s a good starting place for men and women like Ron, who are still confused about the ancient orgins of our world:
5.7.2010 By CK Hunter
There is a popular trend in pop TV shows to create some sort of “buzz” ascribing the ancient Sumerian Annunaki with all kinds of miraculous genetic science and human – animal cloning wizardry in deep prehistory. The producers of the History Channel should have consulted with the documents in the The Urantia Book before they produced this TV show, shown below in the youtube video clip. had they done so, they could have actually produced a truthful examination of earth’s deep spiritual and genetic past, rather than a “pop culture theory” only half examined before it was produced and broadcast.
The Urantia Book examines in depth the early events of actual human prehistory and the dawn of human civilization, including the arrival on earth some 500,000 years ago of the original Planetary Prince [Prince Caligastia] and his staff of 100 spiritual aids and assistants, who were, in fact, super mortal spiritual beings of non-human origin. Some of those beings were later spliced with human genetics, and this ancient science needs to be thoroughly investigated by modern day geneticists and studied.
If there was an ancient “Annunaki” arrival on earth, [the Watchers: "those who from heaven to earth came"] then this event was most likely that documented real arrival. It is the documents in the Urantia Book which need urgently to be compared to Sitchin’s research, as the documents in the book are pre-historic, archangelic documents recorded from heavenly archives, and have not been tampered with in order to gain more book sales, more fame and human notoriety.
Zecharia Stitchin has ignored the proverbial “elephant in the living room” by ignoring the revelatory contents of the epochal Urantia Papers in his historical research into the origins of the Annunaki, thus his research is intrinsically flawed, and must not be taken as fact and gospel. Caligastia and his staff created the first human settlement in the [then tropical] Mesopotamian basin, close the the headwaters of the Persian Gulf 500,000 years ago.
Then [200,000 years ago] he seceded from the government of God, and joined the Lucifer Insurrection, rebelling against the Local government creation of the Universal Paradise Trinity Government of God, and His ruling Creator Son, [known by Christians as the Lord Jesus Christ, who incarnated on earth as Jesus of Nazareth], thus plunging the nascent earth and her primitive populations into abject darkness and chaos.
This is the real record of earth’s secret spiritual past which must be studied in order to understand the legends of the Annunaki and their modern day descendants, the illuminati – the hidden secret world government, who even to this day still worship Lucifer in secret, conspire against human populations for their harm and soul enslavement, and advocate for a one world government in Lucifer’s name. This is all detailed in the Book of Revelations, which should be studied hand in hand with the Urantia Papers to understand the deep origins of the modern day struggle for who will rule and control the earth and her people. I would suggest that all serious Bible scholars and students of the true spiritual history of the earth to visit the links below and read the account recorded by angels of the arrival 500,000 years ago of Prince Caligastia.
The account of the Caligastia rebellion as a local planetary event is one of the most important scriptural and biblical records which is available for people to study in modern times. It may not be available forever, and I would encourage all serious students of the Bible to acquire a copy of the Urantia Book to add to their Christian libraries. You can also read the Urantia Book in it’s entirety online. Cross referencing the Urantia Book with your Christian Bible will prove invaluable to your study of deep and ancient spiritual events on earth which have affected her evolution and all life up to these urgently important end times.
The “pop TV” shows being produced by the History Channel are not necessarily accurate, nor do they necessarily reflect actual spiritual history. Take these shows with an “entertainment” grain of salt at best. Note also that there is a concerted effort now underway in “popular TV” to “sell” the idea that these Annunaki ancestors who arrived from somewhere else are our “genetic Gods” and should be venerated as such. Beware of the implicit “illuminati programming” being broadcast in these popular TV shows, and do not buy the lie that we are literally the modern offspring of ancient Annunaki overlords.
That’s what the illuminati, their modern day descendents, co-conspirators for a Godless one world government, want you to believe. It’s a fallacy, and those that perpetrate such “ancient Annunaki overlord stories” are actually the blind leading the blind, leaving out the next great story in the most important genetic fact of human biological and spiritual development in the history of the earth, which is the real and actual story of the advent of Adam and Eve, our actual and real ancestral biologic uplifters and true genetic parents, which were alive on earth some 38,000 years ago.
Those records, the records of the actual real advent of Adam and Eve, are also recorded in the Urantia Book, and the links below will help Christians and Bible scholars greatly in understanding the complicated spiritual events of our deep secret spiritual past, and the complex ancient genetic soup from which the modern earth races have been formed.
