(614.5) 54:1.10 Evolutionary man may have to contend for his material liberties with tyrants and oppressors on a world of sin and iniquity or during the early times of a primitive evolving sphere, but not so on the morontia worlds or on the spirit spheres. War is the heritage of early evolutionary man, but on worlds of normal advancing civilization physical combat as a technique of adjusting racial misunderstandings has long since fallen into disrepute.

Please, what does "racial" mean here? humankind? the human race?

misunderstandings: disagreements or quarrels? conflicts?

Hello Angel - I think "racial" here still means color based acrimonies and disputes. "normal advancing civilization" would mean a world with a Prince, a Material Son and Daughter, a Teacher and/or Avonal Son, with a normal mortal epoch cycle. But for a very, very long time, there still remains racial distinctions between the Primary colored races, the original andonic stock, and the Adamic blood lines with much amalgamation but still distinctive colorations I think. But on these more normal and advancing worlds, war and physical combat loses its standing and use for settling any disputes - those are settled by negotiations, arbitration, and judicial actions and would be as you describe - disagreements, quarrels, and conflicts of any nature.

Thank you.

But, please, would those quarrels and disputes be race against race? for racial superiority?

I think the term "racial misunderstandings" might mean many things. Territory, food, water, shelter, and other forms of tribal and national disputes. But differences between people is often the primitive's excuse for conflict and color is a primary difference that does drive disputes and conflict. Urantia still has such primitives today...and they come in all colors. But all conflicts must be, eventually, dealt with by reason, compromise, compassion, and respect to ever hope to end violent conflicts of every type. We are a belligerent people and still driven by fears - we fear change and differences and perceived/potential loss. Fears drive hate and conflict and violence. The color thing is but one example and not all chose war based on color according to text - amalgamation came quite voluntarily as well as by slavery and conquest. Complicated.
