p1: Urantia 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”
Andon etymology: The one who (A) is the first and original (an) human leader (don). Andon was the first male human being.
By Chris Halvorson: “the first (an) true human man (don).”
Fonta etymology: The specific (F) source or wellspring (font) expressed in an original and/or archetypal manner (a).
By Chris Halvorson: “the first (a) source (font) [for true human offspring]” “-a = L. noun suffix (first declension, nominative) = U.B., general noun suffix, used to indicate the additional specific meanings of the coined name”

Section 2: The Foxhall Peoples
The use of the term “Foxhall peoples” is an apparent reference to the archaeological work of Nina Frances Layard. The 2005 publication of Miss Layard excavates: the Palaeolithic site at Foxhall Road, Ipswich, 1903-1905 was written by researchers involved with the AHOB (Ancient Habitation of Britain) project. In their resurrection of the importance of this archaeological site, White and Plunkett describe how aspiring archaeologist Nina Frances Layard discovered Lower Palaeolithic hand axes and the remains of extinct mammals in a working quarry close to her home in southeastern England; arranged permission, financing, and workers to conduct an excavation; and published her findings. The site is little known today, they say, not because of any failing in the excavation work, but because the lack of supporting professional and official support in the early 20th century allowed the artifacts to be scattered and the site to be developed later.
Curiously, The Urantia Book chose to name a population of early man after this early, underappreciated archaeological work, which, over one hundred years later, is gaining respect for its contribution to this subject area.
The Scientific Symposium I in 1988 published Scott Forsythe’s “The Foxhall Peoples: An Encounter between Archaeology and The Urantia Book” His early work on this subject presents some intriguing backstory, not covered in the UBtheNEWS Early Migration to Britain Report.

Section 3: The Badonan Tribes
p2: Badonites etymology: The second phase (B) of the initial (a) leaders (don) in genetic development (ites).
Section 4: The Neanderthal Races
The UNESCO World Heritage archaeological site at Zhoukoudian, China is an especially abundant source of early humanoid artifacts–Peking Man. Accurately dating human fossils from the site has been difficult. In 2008 new and more exacting dating techniques were applied to the sediment layers where the bones were found. The results indicate that the fossils are around 200,000 years older than previous estimations of approximately 550,000 years. The new dating places these fossils in a significantly colder environment due to ice age activity that occurred 750,000 years ago.
Additionally, a recent re-evaluation of hand axes found at the site reveal a higher degree of sophistication in tool making than previously thought. This discovery indicates that these early humans were more skilled at hunting and slaughtering animals than anthropologists originally hypothesized. See UBtheNEWS Early Migration to China Report.
p2: Kary Mullis is famous as a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist for his improvement of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique and somewhat infamous for his highly unpopular and outspoken views on subjects outside of his field of expertise. On his website, he recommends books, including “The Urantia Book ostensibly by Extraterrestrials.” His Urantia Book-link goes to a page on his website that lists a few articles from Nature and Science to support a few statements in The Urantia Book that were not supported by science in 1955.

Section 5: Origin of the Colored Races
The UBtheNEWS Research on the Double Dual Origin of Modern Man and pre-Modern Man page is a collection of scientific articles related to the Andon-Sangik pre-Modern Man genetic mutations and the Nodite-Adamite Modern Man genetic introductions. This Research page can be appreciated more readily if one first becomes familiar with the UBtheNEWS Eugenics, Race, and The Urantia Book paper (especially Appendix 1: a Urantia Book-based Taxonomy), the Adam and Eve Report, and the Gobekli Tepe Report. See Topical Study: Gobekli Tepe.
Section 6: The Six Sangik Races of Urantia
The Clovis First theory, which holds that Native Americans arrived over the Bering Straight land-bridge about 12,500 years ago, was predominantly held by scholars at the time of publication. Since 1955, new discoveries have been increasingly pushing this date further back in time. Much of the “old guard” opinion on this subject is still unwilling to concede a date prior to about 25,000 years ago. Nonetheless, numerous sites in both North and South America provide strong evidence for the presence of the Native Americans 40,000 to 60,000 years ago. Part of the problem with accepting the credible archeological evidence in conflict with Clovis First is that it also conflicts with the widely held “out of Africa” theory. This topic is an excellent example of just how difficult it is for scholars who have invested their reputations in “old theories” to consider new evidence without bias. See UBtheNEWS Early Migration to the Americas Report.
p15: Caligastia etymology: The one whose (capital “C,” specific) darkness (calig-) entirely (as) turns him into a non-person (-tia, normally used for impersonal names, instead of –ia, which would normally be used for a personal name). From Latin caliginosus “misty,” from caliginem (nom. caligo) “mistiness, darkness, fog, gloom.”Caligula was a Roman Emperor who succeeded Tiberius and whose uncontrolled passions resulted in manifest insanity; noted for his cruelty and tyranny; was assassinated.
By Chris Halvorson: “the one who is (-tia) entirely (as) darkenss (calig-) and no longer personal.”
p19: metric conversion: “. . . many of their leaders being 2.4 and 2.7 m in height.”
Section 7: Dispersion of the Colored Races
Two partial archaic human skulls, from the Lingjing site, Xuchang, central China, provide a new window into the biology and populations patterns of the immediate predecessors of modern humans in eastern Eurasia. See 3/2/17 Science Daily article.
p2: antipathy: This word appears once.
p14,15: Egypt A research paper titled “Ancient Egyptian mummy genomes suggest an increase of Sub-Saharan African ancestry in post-Roman periods” was published by Nature Communications in 2017. From the abstract: “The samples recovered from Middle Egypt span around 1,300 years of ancient Egyptian history from the New Kingdom to the Roman Period. Our analyses reveal that ancient Egyptians shared more ancestry with Near Easterners than present-day Egyptians, who received additional sub-Saharan admixture in more recent times. This analysis establishes ancient Egyptian mummies as a genetic source to study ancient human history and offers the perspective of deciphering Egypt’s past at a genome-wide level.”
p15: National Center for Biotechnology Information report: Excerpt from the conclusion of a study on archaeological evidence from 70 thousand years ago in South Africa: “The data presented here thus urges caution in relying on climatic or environmental factors as theoretical drivers of cultural change. The palaeoenvironmental proxies from KDS and BBC, as well as wider bathymetric modelling for the region, indicate that there was significant variation in the terrestrial and marine resources available to humans at these sites during the periods of occupation. However, while these changes may have impacted human subsistence strategies, they did not directly influence technological or cultural innovation. Indeed, the entirety of early human material cultural florescence associated with the Still Bay and Howiesons Poort traditions in the southern Cape, or southern Africa more widely, cannot be uniformly linked to climatic and environmental forcing.”
