INTRODUCTORY REMARKSTHE ABDUCTION PHENOMENON
In several letters and documents over the past years I espoused the view that the children of Adam and Eve would return to this planet from Edentia, where they are now held, to continue the genetic uplift program interrupted at the time of the default of Adam and Eve.
This view was based on the curious statement from I Enoch 39:1:
And it shall come to pass in those days that elect and holy children will descend from the high heaven, and their seed will become one with the children of men.
I held this view in spite of the remark on page 844 of The Urantia Papers concerning the children of Adam and Eve that "we do not know what disposition is to be made of them." I also held this view in direct contradiction of the statement on page 632:
When such an era is attained on your world, no doubt Machiventa Melchizedek, now the vicegerent Planetary Prince of Urantia, will occupy the seat of the Planetary Sovereign; and it has long been conjectured on Jerusem that he will be accompanied by a son and daughter of the Urantia Adam and Eve who are now held on Edentia as wards of the Most Highs of Norlatiadek. These children of Adam might so serve on Urantia in association with the Melchizedek-Sovereign since they were deprived of procreative powers almost 37,000 years ago at the time they gave up their material bodies on Urantia in preparation for transit to Edentia.
Obviously, if those children were deprived of procreative powers they cannot continue the program of biologic uplift. Furthermore, only one son and one daughter would return, and then apparently to serve only in an advisory capacity.
I held my view because I could conceive no other plan which would explain this remark from I Enoch.
Another remark exists in our historical record which bears on this question.
Deut 30:3-4 Then Yahweh your God will restore your fortunes, and have compassion upon you, and he will gather you again from all the peoples where Yahweh your God has scattered you. If your outcasts are in the uttermost parts of heaven, from there Yahweh your God will gather you, and from there he will fetch you.
Is the last sentence a rhetorical comment, used merely as emphasis, that no matter where the children of Israel (not only Jews) are scattered, they will be gathered? Or does it speak of earth people who, somehow or other, have been indeed scattered to the uttermost parts of heaven?
We have no evidence of any kind, either in our historical records, nor
in The Urantia Papers, that groups of earth people were removed
from this planet in prior ages, except for the children of Adam and Eve,
and the isolated report on Elijah, who was taken away, II Kings 2:11.
However, we do have a promise that certain people will be taken away
after the coming nuclear holocaust.
Rev 14:1-3 Then I looked, and lo, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. . . . and they sing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been redeemed from the earth.
This Mount Zion is not an earthly mount; from The Urantia Papers
we know it as Salvington, (or perhaps Edentia) (or perhaps Jerusem).
In the Book of Revelation the 144,000 is a symbolic number representing
a special group selected from all the genetic remnants of the people of
Israel, not merely Jews. (I shall discuss this difference in depth in a
future paper, with planetary evidence to support such assertion.)
The timing of their removal was specified by Jesus, and is recorded
in our historical documents in Matt 24:29-31 and 39-42. If will be "after
the tribulation of those days."
The purpose of this wait before lift-off is to ensure that all planetary
residents have an opportunity to make decisions and to take action to preserve
themselves against the coming great earth changes, for the future benefit
of this world. Their choices will demonstrate their devotion to God. They
will not be candidates for lift-off unless they make those decisions and
take those crucial actions.
Several questions loom before us. What is the purpose of the lift-off?
Do the 144,000 make up those who are scattered into the uttermost parts
of heaven? If so, can we gain additional insight into this highly unusual
In previous papers and letters I took the view that, indeed, these two
groups are the same. I did so because it seems incredible there would be
two different groups with such unique experience. In other words, the statement
in Deuteronomy is a precursor to the remarks in the Book of Revelation.
I concluded that the pure-blood children of Adam and Eve were not a part
of Israel, and hence could not be the part which was scattered.
(Given these unusual remarks I am led to believe that other information
might exist for our enlightenment if it had not been expunged from the
historical record by Jewish editors at the time of the Babylonian captivity.
These minute remnants of evidence may be part of the Melchizedek "truths
of Salem" which were lost.)
The statement in I Enoch "that elect and holy children will descend
from the high heaven, and their seed will become one with the children
of men" must mean that they have special genetic potentials, similar to
those of the children of Adam and Eve. Functionally, they must be replacements
for the children of Adam and Eve, providing substitute genetic uplift.
If we follow this line of reasoning it must also mean that a different
group will be prepared, not descended from the original Adam and Eve. How
could this be?
Will the Urantia Adam and Eve begin another genetic uplift program,
this time on some other world, with other children? This does not seem
possible. They lived a full earth life, died, were resurrected, and now
serve as members of the four-and-twenty counselors. It does not seem reasonable
they will be returned to material embodiment after such profound alteration
in their personal histories.
Page 826 And now must all flesh on Urantia take the natural course of life and death. Adam, Eve, their children, and their children's children, together with their associates, all perished in the course of time, thus becoming subject to the ascension scheme of the local universe wherein mansion world resurrection follows material death.
On the other hand The Urantia Papers invite us to engage in further creative speculation. These matters have been mentioned, but plenty of room is left to suggest other possibilities.
Page 1025 We well understand how, by his triumph on Urantia, Michael became the successor of both Caligastia and Adam; how he became the planetary Prince of Peace and the second Adam. And now we behold the conferring upon this Melchizedek of the title Vicegerent Planetary Prince of Urantia. Will he also be constituted Vicegerent Material Son of Urantia? Or is there a possibility that an unexpected and unprecedented event is to take place, the sometime return to the planet of Adam and Eve or certain of their progeny as representatives of Michael with the titles vicegerents of the second Adam of Urantia?
At first glance, and from the remarks on page 632, we might think we
have a partial answer to one of these questions. "Certain of their progeny"
would be one son and one daughter. But such suggestion seems to beg the
statement. If "they were deprived of procreative powers" how could they
serve as replacement biological uplifters? How could they be Vicegerent
It is also difficult to understand how Melchizedek would serve in such
role if he will be our Planetary Sovereign. Would not the respective roles
of spiritual Planetary Ruler and biologic uplifters both be maintained,
yet both be kept separate?
Answers to these questions depend upon two important factors concerning the current status of our world. The first is the problem of deficiencies in the present Urantia human biologic stock.
Page 592: And it is the failure of your early peoples . . . that accounts for the presence of so many defective and degenerate individuals among the present-day Urantia races. . . . It is the false sentiment of your partially perfected civilizations that fosters, protects, and perpetuates the hopelessly defective strains of evolutionary human stocks.
Page 585: The difficulty of executing such a radical program on Urantia consists in the absence of competent judges to pass upon the biologic fitness or unfitness of the individuals of your world races. Notwithstanding this obstacle, it seems that you ought to be able to agree upon the biologic disfellowshiping of your more markedly unfit, defective, degenerate, and antisocial stocks.
Page 839: Under normal conditions the first work of a Planetary Adam and Eve would be the co-ordination and blending of the races. But on Urantia such a project seemed just about hopeless, for the races, while biologically fit, had never been purged of their retarded and defective strains.
Page 920: As long as present-day races are so overloaded with inferior and degenerate strains, race intermingling on a large scale would be most detrimental . . .
The second difficulty is the lack of sufficient Adamic blood in the
current Urantia races.
Page 752: The Prince . . . contributed something to the miscarriage of the plan to uplift the mortal races through the infusion of the lifeblood of the new violet race the descendants of Adam and Eve.
Page 836: . . . And what a different world Urantia would have become if this great plan of uplifting the races had been carried out!
Page 851: So much of fear persists in the present-day races of Urantia because your ancestors received so little of Adam's life plasm, owing to the early miscarriage of the plans for racial physical uplift.
Thus we are faced with two problems:
1. The human races were never purged of their inferior and degenerate
2. We did not receive sufficient Adamic blood to effect proper biologic
If the pure-blood children of Adam and Eve now on Edentia were deprived
of their procreative powers, and if the Urantia Adam and Eve were removed
from further contribution to biologic uplift, how will the Urantia races
It may be helpful to note that we are the sentimental shrine of all
Nebadon, page 1319. The regular scheme of planetary epochs has been thrown
into disarray, page 227.
But the regular sequence of Paradise Sons on your planet was wholly deranged by the appearance of your Creator Son on his terminal bestowal nineteen hundred years ago.
Thus we should not base our speculations on ordinary schedules. Anything
can happen on a world used by the Creator for his bestowal; it becomes
his special world.
". . . for a Michael-bestowal world becomes the individual and personal ward of a Master Son and, as such, is wholly subject to his own plans and rulings.
In this same context we find the remark about Michael that, in addition to all his other titles from his several bestowal experiences, he is an "Adamic Redeemer." While that remark may reflect his Adamic bestowal, page 1312, it also may reflect his personal concern for the Adamic regime of any world gone astray. He personally experienced the trials of a Material Son on a rebellion-torn world, all the while effecting the rehabilitation of its Prince and the world.
From these several factors it seems necessary that Michael has devised
an alternate biologic improvement program to substitute for the miscarriage
of the original. Reconsider that earlier question:
Or is there a possibility that an unexpected and unprecedented event is to take place, the sometime return to the planet of Adam and Eve or certain of their progeny as representatives of Michael with the titles vicegerents of the second Adam of Urantia?
While the return of the original Adam and Eve certainly would be unexpected
and unprecedented, there are other factors which must be considered in
our attempt to understand such extraordinary transactions.
My original thought of the children of Adam and Eve returning to this
world was the most simple and, perhaps, simple-minded solution. If the
blood-line of the original Adam and Eve is to be continued for uplift why
resort to a new set of children to accomplish that end?
If we examine the history of Adam and Eve we discover that they were
a pair reproduced by an original created pair, that such original pair
was unique to biological functioning in the system of Satania, and that
they were the offspring of the Creator Son alone, without participation
by the Universe Mother Spirit, page 580. Therefore, if the Urantia Adam
and Eve were to return, it would be necessary for Michael to create another
set of unique bodies for them.
There may be important reasons for depriving the children of the original
Urantia Adam and Eve of procreative powers. Eve exhibited an inability
to cope with the extreme circumstances of our world; she was impatient,
used poor judgment, and engaged in an immoral act. Because genetic endowment
is so profoundly important to the future spiritual condition, moral stamina,
mental capacity, and physical health of the human races the factors of
spirituality, morality, and intellect are as important as the physical
condition. Perhaps impatience, poor judgment, and immorality reflect defects
in that genetic line which necessitated that it be cut off. Since moral
and spiritual endowments do not center in physical bodies perhaps new bodies
would not solve the problems of those defects.
(How much of the moral, spiritual, and intellectual problems of the
Urantia races were preconditioned by the little Adamic blood we did receive?)
This line of reasoning forces us to the conclusion that a different
Adam and Eve will contribute to the future of this world. If this is the
sentimental shrine of all Nebadon, and Michael's special world, it seems
that he would choose a pair who would provide spiritual, moral, and intellectual
traits to compensate for that loss.
The question then arises if another Adam and Eve will be chosen from
among the original Satania group? Can he find a pair who would meet such
needs? Would another genetic pair be compatible with the Adamic seed which
is now resident within the Urantia races, no matter how small an amount?
Or would it be necessary that he create an original pair to address compatibility
conflicts? Although we can raise such questions we are far too ignorant
to be able to speculate on answers.
Still another factor should be considered. If new bodies were created
for the original Urantia Adam and Eve there would be nothing to prevent
the creation of bodies for any pair of personalties. There are now no limitations
on the creation of a unique Adamic line. Such event would truly be unexpected
If a substitute Adam and Eve, or certain of their progeny, would return
to this planet, not the original Urantia Adam and Eve, they would more
neatly satisfy the title of Vicegerents of the second Adam of Urantia.
If the original Adam and Eve returned it does not seem sensible they would
receive the title of Vicegerents.
As this discussion shows, more thorough examination of these genetic
problems certainly has profound ramifications.
Some may feel that the scraps of information in I Enoch, the
of Deuteronomy, and the Book of Revelation are too tenuous a
base for such fascinating speculations. However we cannot neglect the context
of The Urantia Papers. The genetic deficiencies in the present-day
Urantia races, and the concerns expressed by our planetary supervisors,
certainly make genetics a primary element in any program for improvement
of this world, just as the preceding quotations demonstrate.
At this point it may be helpful to consider other elements of information which may give us deeper insight.
THE ABDUCTION PHENOMENON
Within the context of these human genetic problems startling and inexplicable
reports are coming from all parts of the globe which suggest that a huge
human genetic research program is now underway by celestial agencies.
Several important features characterize that activity. Refer to the
reports by Budd Hopkins, Missing Time, 1981 and Intruders,
1987, David Jacobs, Secret Life, 1992, and Abduction, John
1. Human mortals are abducted against their will and carried on board
craft now hovering mysteriously in our skies.
2. The activity is clandestine. We do not observe objects in the sky
commensurate with such widespread activity; they are hidden from our view.
Also, the human subjects are placed under memory suppression which usually
prevents their clear recall of events.
3. Occasionally some individuals will have memory flashes which make
them highly uncomfortable, or they will develop psychological or biological
disorders as a result of traumatic experiences.
4. Subsequent treatment under hypnosis by medical professionals or psychological
counselors reveals the causes of these disorders. Many details are recovered
about their abduction experiences.
5. The human mortals are examined under clinical conditions by celestial
agents. The examinations are comprehensive on biological and mental characteristics.
There also appears to be a heavy concentration on sexual organs and reproductive
6. Egg and sperm samples are taken. Some women experience the first
trimester of pregnancy, but the embryos are removed on subsequent abduction
episodes. Some women report being given their babies to hold and love.
Reports exist where mothers or fathers are shown the children created as
part of this program, sometimes as toddlers or even teenagers.
7. Although the traumatic experiences may affect the attitudes and mental
expectations of the human mortals, the patterns of their days continue.
There is not sufficient impact to cause dramatic alterations in world secular
or religious organization for political or social decisions.
8. We have no evidence that human mortals are not returned to continue
their private lives. The abductors do not abscond with human mortals who
are the subjects of their research. All are returned to this world. Only
the offspring of the genetic program are taken to other places in the heavens.
9. The abductors are humanoid forms, but with features which disturb
many of the subjects.
10. The abductors apparently have superhuman capacities. They can probe
minds and read thoughts.
11. Two types of humanoid abductors are described, one shorter and one
taller, with the latter serving as "commanders" or "leaders." (This does
not include other reports of "regular" human-type beings.)
12. George Adamski, the most notorious of the "contactees," also observed
and mentioned two types of humanoid forms which he called "robots." He
was told not to discuss them. A more appropriate word for Adamski to use
would have been "androids." It is far more likely that the abductors- examiners
are androids, and not sentient beings in the human sense.
13. The combination of abductor power and sexual reproduction, together with the inherent limitations of recall methods, led investigators to the conclusion that hybrid forms are being created between humans and the abductors. The fears of the investigators led to conditioning, and suggestive questioning, of their hypnotized subjects, thus to bias the details of the reports.
Other factors enter into our evaluation of these reports.
14. The Urantia Papers cast light on genetic possibilities which
are in sharp contrast to the wild theories and gross speculations of the
15. No activity goes on within the universe without the approval and
consent of our universe supervisors. This is not an uncontrolled creation,
wandering randomly and lost; it has guidance and direction from our Creator.
16. The citizens of the evolutionary worlds of space are not permitted
free travel and exchange with other planets. A major purpose behind universe
design is to keep the worlds isolated from one another.
17. There is no "galactic empire" out there fulfilling the desires of
immature creatures who inhabit the planets.
18. Consequently, any activity which now goes on about our planet has
the full approval and control of our planetary supervisors. The abduction
program is subject to their rulings and direction.
19. A further consequence of these universe conditions is that any genetic experimentation or breeding must be coordinated with our planetary needs.
20. As a still further consequence of the revelation of The Urantia
Papers, we are now in a position to understand the purpose behind the
abduction phenomenon. We have no need to blindly and wildly speculate as
so many investigators and students of the phenomenon now do.
21. Even more, and significantly, without The Urantia Papers
we would have no basis of understanding. We would be in the same shoes
as all other earth mortals, with no recourse except to blind and wild speculation.
Thus we find a practical use for The Urantia Papers which has no
Because of the fear which fills the minds of the investigators, and
so many others, they cannot get their heads straight to realize that they
have no grounds for such fear.
22. If a "civilization" of sentient beings had the capacity to traverse
space at will, with transit from one location to another far beyond the
limitations suggested by our relativity theories, their grasp of "technology"
would permit them to take us over at will.
23. Again, their abilities to probe human mental function through telepathic
techniques are so profound they could induce controlled response in human
mortals. They show no such desire. They respect human life, human existence,
and human choice.
24. Given such "technological" power they would be able to control their
genetic lines with supreme manipulation. They would have no need for human
genetic materials to balance out their own deficiencies. This factor is
the great flaw in the theories of the investigators. The activity is not
centered in the genetic deficiencies of the abductors; it is centered in
Obviously, some element of supreme importance centers around the current
human genetic status. The depth of the activity shows genetic research
and reproduction which far exceeds our ability to comprehend when considered
from the perspective of "normal" twentieth-century mind orientations.
(We would have had earlier clues to this activity, as far back as John
Fuller's report on Betty and Barney Hill, Interrupted Journey, 1966,
if Fuller had not censored the facts of the genetic probing of that couple.
He reported the appearance of warts around Barney's scrotum but was unwilling
to stick his neck out beyond that, simply because the evidence went so
far beyond our social norms.)
Still other factors affect our understanding:
For me personally an impressive aspect of the abduction phenomenon is
the replete exercise which seems aimed at making sure we take notice. With
the power and "technological" abilities displayed by the abductors they
could effectively have erased all memory from human recall. On the contrary,
their conduct appears aimed at bringing notice to the world, but without
This same technique is currently being employed in the amazing crop
circles of England and in animal mutilations.
While the phenomenon has been perverted by many false claims, the essential
evidence still shows an abundance of experiences, for a purpose which eludes
us, unless we are willing to accept interference into human biological
developments from superior powers in the universe. If the genetic program
is that widespread and profound it would mean that a new uplift exercise
has begun in earnest, concentrated on the current biological generation.
Another aspect should be considered. The coming nuclear devastations
may produce permanent alterations in the biologic stock of the human races.
Part of the genetic program may be to preserve current genetic qualities
against permanent damage caused by such global trauma. In one report by
Budd Hopkins a woman was shown her children who had loss of hair, similar
to those losses which take place with chemotherapy treatments for cancer,
or nuclear radiation exposure. The experimentation may include quantitative
studies on radiation dosage levels. As Jesus stated, if those days had
not been shortened no human mortal would survive, Matt 24:22.
Further concern for our planet may be hinted by another passage in I
Enoch 53:3-5. A possibility exists that quantitative estimates were taken
also on the extent of damage through the use of nuclear weapons.
"For I saw the angels of punishment abiding there and preparing all the instruments of Satan. And I asked the angel of peace who went with me, "For whom are they preparing these instruments?" And he said unto me, "They prepare these for the kings and the mighty of earth, that they may thereby be destroyed."
Because of our foolish and immature expectations of operations within the universe, we take our childish notions of "scientific" developments, extrapolate them onto the universe, and expect that other "humanoids" must, somehow, have motivations reflecting our worst horrors. While the unknown is truly fearful, the investigators have done great disservice to better understanding of the genetic program now underway.
With this summary of genetic evidence before us perhaps we can come
to better understanding of celestial operations now in process.
With recognition that the children of Adam and Eve were denied procreative
powers long ago, with understanding that the 144,000 are still resident
on this planet, and with knowledge that genetic species are peculiar to
one planet, i.e., that planets cannot, or are forbidden to, interchange
genetic stocks -- there is no external source for interbreeding in those
genetic efforts. The genetic program must be centered around present earth
genetic stocks. Certainly, if I were managing such a program, I would be
selecting the most promising stocks. Given the cost of such operations
I would not be fooling around with defective materials. This must mean
that a body of earth human genetic stock is being created on some other
world, in addition to the lift-off of the 144,000. Whatever enterprise
is underway its scope is stupendous and profound.
If the abduction genetic program is operating to preserve better human
genetic stock this would also mean that a selection process is underway
to prepare for interbreeding with Adamic material. In other words a new
program, which might take many generations on earth, is now well along.
It is strongly possible that the plans of our Creator for world improvement
are being accelerated by this process.
The question then returns to the 144,000. Why would they be needed if a body of human mortals are being created on some other world?
Two components are possible. First, the lift-off may be done before
serious nuclear exposure will occur. The 144,000 would become part of the
body of genetic material not subject to nuclear genetic alteration. Second,
cultural continuity is important. A body of people is required to ensure
against the breakdown of evolutionary planetary culture. Those mortals
created through the abduction process would have no actual earth experience,
neither rearing in earthly homes, nor in exposure to social process here
upon earth. They would need healthy influence and interaction with others
who could provide cultural continuity.
Page 911 Section 15: The prevention of transitional breakdown.
Society is the offspring of age upon age of trial and error; it is what survived the selective adjustments and readjustments in the successive stages of mankind's agelong rise from animal to human levels of planetary status. The great danger to any civilization at any one moment is the threat of breakdown during the time of transition from the established methods of the past to those new and better, but untried, procedures of the future.
Page 1256 But aside from these many means of positive action, the master seraphim insure planetary progress against vital jeopardy through the mobilization, training, and maintenance of the reserve corps of destiny. The chief function of these reservists is to insure against breakdown of evolutionary progress; they are the provisions which the celestial forces have made against surprise; they are the guarantees against disaster.
An obvious deduction from such proposal is the timing of these activities.
The intense nature of the current genetic program underway in our skies,
and its display over the past twenty years, shows that stupendous planetary
transactions are coordinated for imminent culmination.
Still another factor enters into our consideration of the amazing transactions
associated with this planet. The four-and-twenty counselors of Satania
are all now from Urantia. They carry extraordinary powers.
Page 512 These four and twenty counselors are (Michael's) personal agents on Jerusem, and they have authority to represent the Master Son in all matters concerning the roll calls of Satania and in many other phases of the scheme of mortal ascension on the isolated worlds of the system. They are the designated agents for executing the special requests of Gabriel and the unusual mandates of Michael.
Page 518 From time to time Jerusem citizens present themselves to the Melchizedek examiners, who certify to their attainment of morontia wisdom. Then they go before the examining corps of the Brilliant Evening Stars or their designates, who ascertain the degree of spirit insight. Next they appear in the presence of the four and twenty counselors and their associates, who pass upon their status of experiential attainment of socialization.
Page 1252 The members of this same commission of former Urantians also act as advisory supervisors of the thirty-six other rebellion-isolated worlds of the system . . .
In addition to religious leaders of early Urantian history the members now include Adam and Eve, Enoch, Moses, Elijah, and John the Baptist. Thus it is evident that individuals who have done great service for Michael on this world become candidates for extraordinary service in Satania.
Machiventa Melchizedek also demonstrates this unusual contribution to
the service of Michael. His mortal experience at the time of Abraham, his
presence as one of the four-and-twenty counselors, his future human birth
on our world, (which I discuss in my papers on Jesus and Melchizedek,
Creator and Messiah and The Millennium), and his future rulership
as Planetary Sovereign all show a unique dedication to and unique honor
Melchizedek and Adam and Eve did not live by faith. But Moses, Elijah,
and John the Baptist certainly did. It was their deep and abiding faith
in God which led to their extraordinary service. We can now better understand
that remark on page 578:
On first thought it might appear that Urantia and its associated isolated worlds are most unfortunate in being deprived of the beneficent presence and influence of such superhuman personalities as a Planetary Prince and a Material Son and Daughter. But isolation of these spheres affords their races a unique opportunity for the exercise of faith and for the development of a peculiar quality of confidence in cosmic reliability which is not dependent on sight or any other material consideration. It may turn out, eventually, that mortal creatures hailing from the worlds quarantined in consequence of rebellion are extremely fortunate. We have discovered that such ascenders are very early intrusted with numerous special assignments to cosmic undertakings where unquestioned faith and sublime confidence are essential to achievement.
Given these exceptional transactions as indicators we do not know where
our Creator might reach to find a pair who have shown deep dedication to
him in sublime demonstration of faith, thus to become eligible to serve
as the future Vicegerent Material Sons of Urantia.
