For those of you who are Urantia book readers this is a very interesting report for it partially
confirms from the scientific community what the Urantia book has stated over 60 years ago. It is
condensed as follows:

NEW LINK TO HUMAN EVOLUTIONARY CHAIN DISCOVERED: REPORTS 60 MINUTES
Monday, August 02

An American paleo-anthropologist Professor Lee Berger at the University of Witwatersrand, was
walking by the Malapa Nature Reserve. He was accompanied by his colleague Job Kibii, his
nine-year-old son Matthew and his dog Tau. On the way, they found a cave and a series of
astonishing events began.

They found the remains of a nine-year old boy in South Africa, which was almost two million years
old. Berger gave him the name of Australopitihecus Sediba. The surprising thing about this fossil is
its skull, which was very well preserved even after almost two million years. In fact, the teeth of the
boy could be counted which looked very much like us, the human beings of today.

The word 'Sediba' means source and the fossil found, belongs to the time of apes and humans. He
was of the time when our ancestors started to live on the ground after coming down from the trees.
It will be studied by the anthropologists for the next few decades as he belongs to an unidentified
species of previous times.

Sediba was brought to a press conference in Johannesburg, which lived in the hills just 50 minutes
from here. The place is called 'the Cradle of Human Kind' as it is believed that all humans actually
came from Africa. (End of article)

THE URANTIA BOOK HAS CONSISTENTLY MAINTAINED THAT THE HUMAN ORDER EVOLVED
FROM THE PRIMATES JUST UNDER A MILLION YEARS AGO, 993,419 FROM THE YEAR 1934
TO BE MORE PRECISE. AND THE CRADLE OF HUMAN KIND WAS NO WHERE NEAR AFRICA
WHICH IS WHERE THE ACTIVITY BEGAN WITH DR. LOUIS LEAKY IN THE LATE '60'S WHO
FOUND EITHER A PRIMATE OR PRE-EXISTING APE WHOSE ANCESTORS HAVE BEEN EXTINCT
FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. THE FIRST TWO HUMANS WERE VERY CLOSE IN PHYSICAL
STATURE TO THEIR PRIMATE COUSINS AND APART FROM THEIR DEVELOPMENT IN
EMOTIONS, CURIOSITY, AND MENTAL CAPABILITIES, CLOSELY RESEMBLED THE PRIMATES.
"THE PRIMATES WERE MORE HUMAN AND LESS ANIMAL THAN THEIR MID-MAMMAL
PREDECESSORS. THE SKELETAL PROPORTIONS OF THIS NEW SPECIES WERE VERY
SIMILAR TO THOSE OF THE PRIMITIVE HUMAN RACES. THE HUMAN TYPE OF HAND AND
FOOT HAD FULLY DEVELOPED, AND THESE CREATURES COULD WALK AND EVEN RUN AS
WELL AS ANYONE OF THEIR LATER-DAY HUMAN DESCENDANTS." (URANTIA BOOK PG. 707-3)

                                                        THE DAWN RACES OF EARLY MAN (PAPER 62 -- PG. 703
                                                         THE ORIGIN OF THE HUMAN SPECIES

THE EARLY LEMURS CONCERNED IN THE HISTORY OF THE HUMAN SPECIES WERE NOT
DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE PRE-EXISTENT TRIBES OF GIBBONS AND APES THEN LIVING IN
EURASIA AND NORTHERN AFRICA, WHOSE PROGENY HAVE SURVIVED TO THE PRESENT
TIME. NEITHER WERE THEY THE OFFSPRING OF THE MODERN TYPE OF LEMUR, THOUGH
SPRINGING FROM AN ANCESTOR COMMON TO BOTH BUT LONG SINCE EXTINCT.

WHILE THESE EARLY LEMURS EVOLVED IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE, THE
ESTABLISHMENT OF THE DIRECT MAMMALIAN ANCESTRY OF MANKIND TOOK PLACE IN
SOUTHWESTERN ASIA, IN THE ORIGINAL AREA OF THE CENTRAL LIFE IMPLANTATION BUT
ON THE BORDERS OF EASTERN REGIONS. SEVERAL MILLION YEARS AGO THE NORTH
AMERICAN TYPE OF LEMURS HAD MIGRATED WESTWARD OVER THE BERING LAND BRIDGE
AND HAD SLOWLY MADE THEIR WAY SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE ASIATIC COAST.
THESE MIGRATING TRIBES FINALLY REACHED THE SALUBRIOUS REGION LYING BETWEEN
THE THEN EXPANDED MEDITERRANEAN SEA AND THE ELEVATING MOUNTAINOUS REGIONS
OF THE INDIAN PENINSULA. IN THESE LANDS TO THE WEST OF INDIA THEY UNITED WITH
OTHER AND FAVORABLE STRAINS THUS ESTABLISHING THE ANCESTRY OF THE HUMAN
RACE.

WITH THE PASSING OF TIME THE SEACOAST OF INDIA SOUTHWEST OF THE MOUNTAINS
GRADUALLY SUBMERGED, COMPLETELY ISOLATING THE LIFE OF THIS REGION. THERE WAS
NO AVENUE OF APPROACH TO, OR ESCAPE FROM, THIS MESOPOTAMIAN OR PERSIAN
INVASION OF THE GLACIERS. AND IT WAS IN THIS THEN ALMOST PARADISIACAL AREA, AND
FROM THE SUPERIOR DESCENDANTS OT THIS LEMUR TYPE OF MAMMAL, THAT THERE
SPRANG TWO GREAT GROUPS, THE SIMIAN TRIBES OF MODERN TIMES AND THE
PRESENT-DAY HUMAN SPECIES.

The book goes on to mention several other links to the first two human beings, namely the Dawn
Mammals, the Mid-mammals, and the Primates. All were carefully chronicled by the life carriers
who arrived on the planet five hundred million years ago. This paper was presented by a Life
Carrier still resident on the planet. Scientist can continue to grope around in the regions of south
Africa where it is assumed that the origins of mankind will someday emerge, but such will never
yield the true origins of the first human settlements, and to determine who the first real humans
were can only come from revelation. It is all in the Urantia book.
