Your scenario for the future of the Americas is certainly interesting. However, you failed to include portions of revelation that might be more instructive for you.

Since the ancestry of the present population of both North and South America is composed largely of European racial stocks you should carry your thoughts through to those antecedents. Further, the immigrant populations now coming into the United States contain much admixture with black and red men. This biases the conclusions that you reach. Refer to your citation from the Economist.

I shall first consider the European contribution to the American racial stocks.

P.899 - §3 This European culture for five thousand years continued to grow and to some extent intermingle. But the barrier of language prevented the full reciprocation of the various Occidental nations. During the past century this culture has been experiencing its best opportunity for blending in the cosmopolitan population of North America; and the future of that continent will be determined by the quality of the racial factors which are permitted to enter into its present and future populations, as well as by the level of the social culture which is maintained.

We find a parallel passage in Dan 2:41-44:

And as you saw the feet and toes partly of potter's clay and partly of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom; but some of the firmness of iron shall be in it, just as you saw iron mixed with the miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle. As you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay.

Many students of biblical prophecy regard this passage in Daniel as a description of Europe after the collapse of the Roman Empire. You might pursue a study of Daniel 2 from many sources. Preston Thomas, a Urantian living near Charlottesville, VA, has considered this issue in depth.

The barrier of language prevented full reciprocation of the European nations. (Iron mixing with clay.) The Teutonic, Slavic, Celtic, and Romance languages were barriers to a full mixing of genetic stocks.

Not until these European people migrated to North America did we see the opportunity for this delayed racial mixing. For example, my marriage to a Slovak women permitted my children to inherit the genetic elements of both eastern and western Europe. I could cite many example of this racial mixing in North America.

I hope you will note the concentration in the Urantia Papers on the future of North America. North America carries considerable importance to the destiny of the world. Similar importance does not hold for South America. This is because the genetic mixing did not take place in South America as it did in North America. South America is mostly of Hispanic ancestry.

You also clipped portions of your quotations which are highly important to understanding the full implications contained within the Urantia Papers. I repeat that here to include the other important aspect.

P.920 - §3 Hybridization of superior and dissimilar stocks is the secret of the creation of new and more vigorous strains. And this is true of plants, animals, and the human species. Hybridization augments vigor and increases fertility. Race mixtures of the average or superior strata of various peoples greatly increase creative potential, as is shown in the present population of the United States of North America. When such matings take place between the lower or inferior strata, creativity is diminished, as is shown by the present-day peoples of southern India.

North America, and the United States, has compiled a stupendous record in modern creative genius. This goes back to such simple things as the grain reaper, and has continued into the present day in computers, without which the modern age of electronics and communication could not exist, and the most important creative contribution, nuclear weapons.

Now consider the two elements of revelation that affect your scenario:

the future of that continent will be determined by the quality of the racial factors which are permitted to enter into its present and future populations, as well as by the level of the social culture which is maintained.

and

When such matings take place between the lower or inferior strata, creativity is diminished, as is shown by the present-day peoples of southern India.

The present influx of people into the United States with a strong admixture of black and red blood contains those elements which will diminish creativity. If the present trends continue the United States must decline in its great creative genius.

You can see this in various ways. Consider the "superstitious" element. The higher genetic stocks of European descent tended to evolve away from superstitions. The Urantia Papers could not have been revealed, nor would they have been disseminated, if superstition has been strongly present among William Sadler, the Forum, and those people who later came into knowledge of them. On the contrary, this superstitious element is strongly present in the immigrating genetic elements now entering the United States. They are mostly of a Catholic Church background, and the Church promotes these native superstitions in order to maintain its strangle hold on those people.

The issue of social culture has many contributing factors that I cannot enter into here. While the cultures presently infiltrating the United States certainly would have an impact on our future, the degradation of religious ideals and rampant immorality are far more influential.

I also do not comment here on the genetic programs now being prosecuted by our Celestial Visitors.

MELTING POT

Only a beautiful girl turns heads.

Just imagine that people would be queuing to join the Urantia Movement.

How could we achieve this?

1.- The birth of a new race, in America.

 

P.871 - §8 The ….. Andite peoples …….. consisted of a blend of the Adamites and Nodites. The second garden was surrounded by concentric circles of diminishing violet blood, and it was on the periphery of this racial melting pot that the ANDITE RACE WAS BORN.

Look at this article, it is already happening in America.

For the whole article this link.

http://economist.com/printedition/displayStory.cfm? Story_ID=4148911

The last paragraph says this;

Lastly, there is evidence that new immigrants, Hispanics especially, are joining the rest of the American people in the most direct possible way: by marrying them. Almost a third of all marriages involving a Hispanic or Asian partner cross racial lines (counting Hispanics as a race for this purpose). By most standards, American rates of mixed-race marriage have been low: one in 23 marriages in 1990, up to one in 15 in 2000. Latinos seem to be leading the way in breaking down that barrier. Nearly half of all the 3.7m inter- racial marriages in the country have one Hispanic partner. In states with a lot of Hispanic immigration, the rate is surprisingly high: 14% in California and Nevada, around 11% in Washington state, Colorado and Arizona. At this rate, intermarriage will soon stop being exotic and become mainstream. It is another way of stirring the melting pot.

2.- America –as a continent is a MELTING POT – has the POTENTIAL to achieve this.

P.920 - §3 HYBRIDIZATION of superior and dissimilar stocks IS THE SECRET of the creation of new and more vigorous strains. And this is true of plants, animals, and the human species. Hybridization augments vigor and increases fertility. Race mixtures of the average or superior strata of various peoples greatly increase creative potential, as is shown in the present population of the United States of North America.

3.- We make the sons of God – Urantia Book readers - beautiful, externally (physically) and innerly (moriontially) = ATTRACTIVE and the rest of the people will want to join, mingle, mate with us. They could even compete to join us.

P.586 - §1….. , while the world races increasingly strive to qualify for recognition and admission to the garden. You can at best have but a very meager idea of how this competitive struggle comes to occupy the center of all activities on a normal planet. This whole scheme of race improvement was early wrecked on Urantia.

The whole scheme could be planned again. At a reasonable scale. TRIAL AND ERROR, before we attempt to get it to a large scale.

P.920 - §7……… Interbreeding between the highest types of the white, red, and yellow races would immediately bring into existence many new and biologically effective characteristics.

4.-Then we will have BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEINGS, physically and innerly, and TRUTH BEATUY AND GOODNESS could be expressed through them.

We could even have another Moses………

P.1055 - §4 ……… under that great leader, teacher, and organizer, Moses. His mother was of the royal family of Egypt; his father was a Semitic liaison officer between the government and the Bedouin captives. Moses thus possessed qualities derived from superior racial sources; his ancestry was so HIGHLY BLENDED that it is impossible to classify him in any one racial group. Had he not been of this mixed type, he would never have displayed that unusual versatility and adaptability which enabled him to manage the diversified horde ……….

Or a great artist, to help us to improve civilization.

P.500 - §6 …….some day a real musician may appear on Urantia, and whole peoples will be enthralled by the magnificent strains of his melodies. One such human being could forever change the course of a whole nation, even the entire civilized world. It is literally true, "melody has power a whole world to transform."

5.- America is geographically protected – Australia would be Plan B – just in case. Besides I heard the Australian girls are hot. Oops!

P.907 - §2 The configuration of continents and other land-arrangement situations are very influential in determining peace or war. Very few Urantians have ever had such a favorable opportunity for continuous and unmolested development as has been enjoyed by the peoples of North America--protected on practically all sides by vast oceans.

7.- Then culture and evolution could meet up to bring about a better CIIVILIZATION, constructed by a new BEAUTIFUL race.

P.905 - §6 ….But when lengthy periods of human history are surveyed, it will be observed that eventually evolution and culture become related as cause and effect. Evolution may advance in the absence of culture, but CULTURAL CIVILIZATION DOES NOT FLOURISH without an adequate background of antecedent racial progression.

8.- In South America we also have more hybrids, predominantly of the red race. The more blended the better, remember Moses.

P.884 - §2 ……In Mexico, Central America, and in the mountains of South America the later and more enduring civilizations were founded by a race predominantly red but containing a considerable admixture of the yellow, orange, and blue.

9.- The latinamericans or Hispanics also have a little bit of the Andite Race. We can re-start to some extent – small scale - the Melchizedek plan again.

P.884 - §3 These civilizations were evolutionary products of the Sangiks, notwithstanding that traces of Andite blood reached Peru. …………. In the original Melchizedek plan for the improvement of the Urantia races it had been stipulated that one million of the pure- line descendants of Adam should go to upstep the red men of the Americas.

10.- The details will have to be worked out by the Teachers- Learners (please see note) studying the Urantia Book and Ethics, sociology,… etc. So that the plan of making a BEAUTIFUL MOVEMENT is protected and carried out wisely.

P.1220 - §3 The inner and the outer worlds have a different set of values. Any civilization is in jeopardy when three quarters of its youth enter materialistic professions and devote themselves to the pursuit of the sensory activities of the outer world. CIVILIZATION is in danger when youth neglect to interest themselves in ethics, sociology, eugenics, philosophy, the fine arts, religion, and cosmology.

NOTE: TEACHING – LEARNING

P.1658 - §0 This school was conducted on the plan of learning and doing. What the students learned during the forenoon they taught to the assembly by the seaside during the afternoon. After supper they informally discussed both the learning of the forenoon and the teaching of the afternoon.

Urantially Yours
