Today it was announced that scientists had found what they believe the be the oldest procreating life forms to exist and they estimate these complex organism, appeared between 580 and 541 million years ago. The article is here:

http://www.thetimesgazette.com/scientis ... nism/5955/

According to a new study, a fern like creature has reproduced in the ancient oceans of the Earth some 565 million years ago and that constitutes the earliest known evidence of procreation in a complex organism. Many scientists reckon creatures known as rangeomorphs to be among the earliest evolution of complex animals though it has not been possible to determine what these organisms exactly represented, according to the researchers. During the late Ediacaran period, the creature prospered in the oceans, possibly between some 580 and 541 million years ago and these could grow to about 6.5 feet in length though most of them were just about 4 inches.

In 1935, the authors of the Urantia Book wrote this the first appearance of life and how they were involved in its implantation:

58:4.2 (667.6) “550,000,000 years ago the Life Carrier corps returned to Urantia. In co-operation with spiritual powers and super-physical forces we organized and initiated the original life patterns of this world and planted them in the hospitable waters of the realm.”

What are the chances that in 1935, authors would have 'guessed" correctly when the beginnings of life began to appear on our planet, only to be confirmed by scientists 80 years later.

Would that be yet another "revealed truth”?

When our human scientists and explorers independently do research to deduce their conclusions that confirm statements of the Urantia Book which got published 6 decades ago, we might wonder about it.

Perhaps that is because we still keep our doubts about the origin and the authors of the Urantia Book. Perhaps it is difficult for us to believe what the Urantia Book says it is and also about the non-human nature of the authors that the authors themselves reveal.

For me, the Urantia Book is truly superhuman. And that makes me to have confidence and faith in what the book revealed.

With that I am now in a position to look at our lives in a different perspective.

And that is great.

This discovery is about "the earliest known evidence of procreation in a complex organism. Many scientists reckon creatures known as rangeomorphs to be among the earliest evolution of complex animals". It is not about the earliest life. It is therefore not relevant to the claim that
All planetary life (aside from extraplanetary personalities) down to the days of Caligastia, the Planetary Prince, had its origin in our three original, identical, and simultaneous marine-life implantations.[58:4.2]

Alloha Slyde... yes it will. Comes to mind what my Mother use to tell me. Cookie, Another good thing about telling the truth is you don't have to remember what you say :)
Not sure what reply you were referring to ... but thanks :)

Here's another strange and rarely seen phenomenon: highly charged volcanic gases

http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20150923 ... -volcanoes

Quote:
57:7:6 The primitive planetary atmosphere is slowly evolving, now containing some water vapor, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen chloride, but there is little or no free nitrogen or free oxygen. The atmosphere of a world in the volcanic age presents a queer spectacle. In addition to the gases enumerated it is heavily charged with numerous volcanic gases and, as the air belt matures, with the combustion products of the heavy meteoric showers which are constantly hurtling in upon the planetary surface. Such meteoric combustion keeps the atmospheric oxygen very nearly exhausted, and the rate of meteoric bombardment is still tremendous.

Aloha... I live on a very active Volcano.. Mauna Loa and there are time when the "vog" is so heavy that some people can't stay in the flow zone... Lucky we have good trades most of the time to keep clean air coming our way... Lots of science on the Vog... but this is really interesting what you posted... thanks

This is an interesting article, but it isn't really evidence for the originating of life 550 million year ago. In fact scientists have found new evidence potentially pushing the origin of life back to 4.1 billion years:

This is a discrepancy I've been trying to reconcile for a while and haven't come up with any great answers yet.

It's not that hard to reconcile, scientists are humum.

1,000,000,000 years ago is the date of the actual beginning of Urantia history. The planet had attained approximately its present size. And about this time it was placed upon the physical registries of Nebadon and given its name, Urantia.
This paper is a good starting place... read forth for a good timeline...

Aloha,,

Greetings tootsie,

Yes, and the material of which this planet is constructed has its origin in our sun which is six billion years old. Scientists claim that our sun is only 4.5 billion years old, but the Papers tell us that it is older and the parent of our solar system which is 4.5 billion years old.

Sooner or later the scientists will figure that out.

In Friendship,
Rexford

Aloha Rexford... As some here may recall ... that I work at WM Keck Observatory. Twin telescopes at the summit of Mauna Kea, elevation almost 14.000ft. In the middle of the ocean, dark sky. How many time have I wanted to show the "Masters Universe" and UB to some of the Astronomers that I work with... There was one man that was a long time reader and we had many great conversations but he has passed on... but with the growing technology and Kepler now we are having more and more ah-ha moments... slow but sure. :wink: Course this does not mean that they don't read it or are not aware of it... so much on the internet I wonder.

Hi Trizzat,

In another thread we started to explore the possibilities and limitations for determining ages from radio-isotopes. One very simple thing almost all scientists seemed to have forgotten is that the measured age of a rock may end up being the age of the constitution of the magma it was created from, not the rock's solidification date.
