Matthew Block suggests that the following authors were influential in writing of this Paper and has prepared a parallel chart:

Ernest William Barnes, Scientific Theory and Religion: The World Described by Science and Its Spiritual Interpretation (New York: The Macmillan Company, 1933) Wikipedia: Barnes.

William S. Sadler, M.D., F.A.C.S., How You Can Keep Happy (Chicago: American Health Book Concern, 1926) Wikipedia: Sadler.

[Note: “Human Emotions, Instincts, and Sentiments” is the source text. It first appeared as an appendix in How You Can Happy. A lightly revised version appeared in Sadler’s 1929 book, The Mind at Mischief, as Chapter V. The full texts of both versions can be downloaded by clicking here.

Section 1: The Early Lemur Types

Studies increasingly place lemurs in the direct line of human ancestry. See the UBtheNEWS Lemurs to Humans Research page.


61:1.2,4 Lemur origins.

61:2.10 First true lemur.

Section 2: The Dawn Mammals

p1: suddenly From Wikipedia: Stephan Wolfram: “From 1992 to 2002, Stephen Wolfram worked on his controversial book A New Kind of Science, which presents an empirical study of very simple computational systems. Additionally, it argues that for fundamental reasons these types of systems, rather than traditional mathematics, are needed to model and understand complexity in nature. Wolfram’s conclusion is that the universe is digital in its nature, and runs on fundamental laws which can be described as simple programs. He predicts that a realization of this within the scientific communities will have a major and revolutionary influence on physics, chemistry and biology and the majority of the scientific areas in general, which is the reason for the book’s title.”

See “Is There Design in Nature,” Section 7 of Neal Kendall’s Scientific Symposium presentation at Urantia Foundation in 2016.

metric conversion: “They were active little creatures, almost 91 cm tall . . .”

p6Urantia etymology by Chris Halvorson: “specific: Urantia = (y)our heavenly place (i.e., in the cosmos)” “-tia = noun-forming suffix < -t- of L. past participle stem + -ia (cf., -tion and -ion)” “U.B.: “-tia” is indicative of impersonal, while “-ia” is more personal”


Section 3: The Mid-Mammals

p2metric conversion: “These children grew to be a little over 1.2 m in height.”

p3metric conversion: “. . . all more than 1.2 m tall and in every . . .”

p9metric conversion: “Had the ancestral frog of all humanity jumped 5 cm less on a certain occasion, the whole course of evolution would have been markedly changed. . . . moved about 3 km away from this locality . . .”


p6: disgust is used in three paragraphs in three distinct yet progressively related context:
1) 62:3.6 prehuman (disgust towards “repulsive situations”),
2) 72:5.12 civilized man (neighboring planet’s attitude toward idleness and unearned wealth), and
3) 177:4.7 sinful man (Caiaphas toward Judas).

disgusted is used twice: Job’s attitude towards is misguided friends (177:4.7) and Judas attitude towards Mary’s anointing of Jesus’ feet, which got rebuked (172:5.12).

Section 4: The Primates

p1metric conversion: “They attained a height of over 1.5 m, and their heads grew larger in comparison with others among the tribe.”


Section 5: The First Human Beings

p1,2: See Chuck Thurston’s study of when personality is bestowed. This is a subtopic of Abortion and resurrection of the unborn.


Section 6: Evolution of the Human Mind

p5: See Abortion and resurrection of the unborn. See Chuck Thurston’s study of when personality is bestowed.


Section 7: Recognition as an Inhabited World

p1Nebadon etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the first (a) nebular (neb-) upland (don) (The local universe level is the local upland relative to the lowlands where mortals begin their ascension careers in the Milky Way spiral nebula.).” “don < O.E., dun = n., down = upland”

p3See Topical Study page: Abortion and resurrection for the unborn.

Edentia etymology:  The specific, original and/or archetypal (E) edenic (eden) place (-tia).
By Chris Halvorson: “the (eden)ic place (-tia)”

Jerusem etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the “new Jerusalem” (Rev:21.2).
