First use of the word "Urantia" is attested in 1831

Perhaps some of you are not aware of this fact. The word Urantia was first used by Andrew Leith in, "A Narrative of the Peninsular War: Volume 1" (1831). It was used to refer to a city near Frias, a small town in Spain.

Research Van, Turkey to learn about the Urartians kingdom, well over 10,000 years old. I suspect well over indeed. The 3 concentric circles are also found in antiquity.

You appear to imply and have often claimed before that the authors of the UB borrowed existing words, names, and terms from human invention. But according to the text itself and history presented, the Prince's staff and the Garden delivered many original concepts and the words and alaphabet and language and musical notes and keys likewise over many thousands of Urantia generations.

Perhaps it is more logical and soundly reasoned that the terms which we believe originated by humanity first came from our celestial friends, teachers, leaders, and truly original sources? Do you think Edentia comes from Eden? Or the other way around? What about Jerusem and Jerusalem? Heaven and Havona? And Urantia.

I believe many human words have celestial origin, especially as developed by Van and Amadon and as adopted and perpetuated by the Adamites, Nodites, Amadonites, and Andites - the great civilized cultures all originating near the epicenter of our world's social and historical origins. The global adventurers and conquerers, the Andites carried this language and oral history around the world to mix with every other native tongue. Why should we now be surprised by so many intersecting junctions of ancient words and modern?

74:2.2 (829.4) The tongue of Eden was an Andonic dialect as spoken by Amadon. Van and Amadon had markedly improved this language by creating a new alphabet of twenty-four letters, and they had hoped to see it become the tongue of Urantia as the Edenic culture would spread throughout the world. Adam and Eve had fully mastered this human dialect before they departed from Jerusem so that this son of Andon heard the exalted ruler of his world address him in his own tongue.

There is a grocery store chain in my country Indonesia called Indomart that uses 3 red concentric circles for the letter O in their logo. Was that celestial entities influencing the logo designers?

Doubt it (see below)

53:5.4 (605.8) Since Michael elected to remain aloof from the actual warfare of the Lucifer rebellion, Gabriel called his personal staff together on Edentia and, in counsel with the Most Highs, elected to assume command of the loyal hosts of Satania. Michael remained on Salvington while Gabriel proceeded to Jerusem, and establishing himself on the sphere dedicated to the Father—the same Universal Father whose personality Lucifer and Satan had questioned—in the presence of the forgathered hosts of loyal personalities, he displayed the banner of Michael, the material emblem of the Trinity government of all creation, the three azure blue concentric circles on a white background.

53:5.5 (606.1) The Lucifer emblem was a banner of white with one red circle, in the center of which a black solid circle

How do you know, claim, or attest that this is the first use of the word/name? Interesting claim. Impossible to verify.

That's an interesting find regardless of whether it is or is not the first printed use (in recent history) of the word.

Three concentric circles as an ancient motif is very, very common. I think there is a least one old topic here displaying some examples. Was it inherited from the Dalamatians?

Somewhat topical, I've been considering details in the Icelandic sagas that claim to locate the original home of Thor and Odin to the very Northern shores of The Black Sea. The sagas mention the association of the people from there to "Vaner", from which the most certain translation to English would be Vanites. The Goths and related people of Scandinavia and Northern Europe essentially commuted between Scandinavia and the Northern Black Sea region. That is a known historical fact.

The ancient Greeks or Thracians also colonized the Northern and Western shores of The Black Sea and are associated with the Vanites, having been at least partial descendants of Adamson.

80:4.4 (892.7) But the horse was the evolutionary factor which determined the dominance of the Andites in the Occident. The horse gave the dispersing Andites the hitherto nonexistent advantage of mobility, enabling the last groups of Andite cavalrymen to progress quickly around the Caspian Sea to overrun all of Europe. All previous waves of Andites had moved so slowly that they tended to disintegrate at any great distance from Mesopotamia. But these later waves moved so rapidly that they reached Europe as coherent groups, still retaining some measure of higher culture.

80:4.5 (893.1) The whole inhabited world, outside of China and the Euphrates region, had made very limited cultural progress for ten thousand years when the hard-riding Andite horsemen made their appearance in the sixth and seventh millenniums before Christ. As they moved westward across the Russian plains, absorbing the best of the blue man and exterminating the worst, they became blended into one people. These were the ancestors of the so-called Nordic races, the forefathers of the Scandinavian, German, and Anglo-Saxon peoples.

80:4.6 (893.2) It was not long before the superior blue strains had been fully absorbed by the Andites throughout all northern Europe. Only in Lapland (and to a certain extent in Brittany) did the older Andonites retain even a semblance of identity.

The Andite Conquest of Northern Europe

80:5.1 (893.3) The tribes of northern Europe were being continuously reinforced and upstepped by the steady stream of migrants from Mesopotamia through the Turkestan-south Russian regions, and when the last waves of Andite cavalry swept over Europe, there were already more men with Andite inheritance in that region than were to be found in all the rest of the world.

80:5.2 (893.4) For three thousand years the military headquarters of the northern Andites was in Denmark. From this central point there went forth the successive waves of conquest, which grew decreasingly Andite and increasingly white as the passing centuries witnessed the final blending of the Mesopotamian conquerors with the conquered peoples.

80:5.3 (893.5) While the blue man had been absorbed in the north and eventually succumbed to the white cavalry raiders who penetrated the south, the advancing tribes of the mixed white race met with stubborn and protracted resistance from the Cro-Magnons, but superior intelligence and ever-augmenting biologic reserves enabled them to wipe the older race out of existence.

80:5.4 (893.6) The decisive struggles between the white man and the blue man were fought out in the valley of the Somme. Here, the flower of the blue race bitterly contested the southward-moving Andites, and for over five hundred years these Cro-Magnoids successfully defended their territories before succumbing to the superior military strategy of the white invaders. Thor, the victorious commander of the armies of the north in the final battle of the Somme, became the hero of the northern white tribes and later on was revered as a god by some of them.

Good references fanOfVan. I hope we aren't carrying this topic too far off course. To begin to tie the Northern peoples to a genetic connection to the Vanites and other mobile groups of Andites, it is quite clear that "one" of the fathers that brought some unique genetics to Europe since the last days of Adam and Eve can be identified as having paternal haplotype R1a while another had R1b. I do not claim that Adam had that haplotype. Very likely Adam's was quite different. But apparently some Andites most certainly inherited or evolved either R1a or R1b. R1a appears to have reached Eastern Europe tens of thousands of years before R1b, which evidently arrived en masse within the last few thousand years and has very much dominated Northwestern Europe. Another very common paternal haplotype is I, which evidently is associated with Blue Man or Cro Magnon.

Having either an R variant or an I variant does NOT mean that your genetics are predominantly one or the other. It only means that very, very, very long ago your deepest father had such a designation. This scientific detail does, I believe, fully support the information stated by the revelators.
