NEW DISCOVERIES CORROBORATING THE URANTIA BOOK

Reuters magazine: Archaeological discovery is in the area of and pushes back the date for the domestication of the horse significantly closer to The Urantia Book’s statements about horse domestication. Urantia Book links: 78:8.3, 80:4.4, 81:2.8, 81:3.6 March 5 Reuters magazine: Crocodiles are sensitive to the earth’s magnetic field. See Magnetic Sensitivity Report San Diego Union-Tribune: Global satellite images show that cows are sensitive to the earth’s magnetic field. See Magnetic Sensitivity Report Genome Research: Follow up research using better techniques to determine the most recent common ancestor for clade F on the Y chromosome provides an even closer correlation with the Adam and Eve story.

Publication of the National Academy of Sciences: The microcephalin research is followed up by a study showing a strong correlation between non tonal languages and the spread of the change to the microcephalin gene. See: Adam and Eve Report

July 7 Science magazine: Research done at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute on the brain gene Microcephalin reveals numerous correlations to Adam and Eve story. See: Adam and Eve Report Sept. 9

Science magazine: Researchers are able to extract raindrops from 50 million year old clay deposits at various elevations in the Sierras. These raindrops are used to help end a controversy and show that the mountains are as old as stated in The Urantia Book. See Sierra Mountains Report

Miss Layard excavates: the Palaeolithic site at Foxhall Road, Ipswich, 1903-1905: Book published as an outgrowth of modern archeological methodologies being applied to the much earlier work done at Britain’s ancient archaeological sites. The Urantia Book apparently uses the designation “Foxhall People” in reference to this site. See: Early Migration to Britain Report

University of Barcelona, Spain: Additional research on Tycho’s Nova indicates that there is only one star within the field of its x-ray emissions that fits the profile of the companion star. This adds additional support to The Urantia Book’s claim that it had a double star origin. See Tycho’s Nova Report

ScienceDaily: Radiocarbon dating on artifacts from the Topper site along the Savannah River in Allendale County, South Carolina puts human beings in North America 50,000 years ago. See Early Migration to the Americas Report

BBC News: Artifacts from an archaeological site in Israel provide strong evidence that human beings made fire using flint almost 800,000 years ago. This site pushes the date several hundred thousand years further back and also is found in the region consistent with The Urantia Book’s account of this development. See Creating Fire Report

Happisburgh, England: Expoliceman and amateur archaeologist Mike Chambers makes a discovery thathelps push back the earliest known date for human activity in Britain by several hundred thousand years. He found a hand axe – one of the earliest artifacts made by humans ever discovered in northern Europe. See: Early Migration to Britain Report

Stanford University School of Medicine: A mutation to the Y chromosome parallels assertions about a genetic change that occurred approximately 37,000 years ago. See: Adam and Eve Report

ScienceDaily: Dr. Al Goodyear and his team dig deeper at the Topper site in South Carolina. In tens years, continued research will radiocarbon date artifacts from the site along the Savannah River in Allendale County, South Carolina to 50,000 years ago. See Early Migration to the Americas Report

Gobekli Tepe, Turkey: German archeologist Klaus Schmidt leads a team that begins uncovering remains that raise serious challenges to existing theories and presents mysteries that are already explained in The Urantia Book. See Gobekli Tepe Report

The space shuttle videos blue jets for the first time. They shoot upwards from the top of storm clouds. Eye witness sightings of this phenomenon by pilots had long been rejected by scientists, who accused them of “seeing things.” Blue jets are consistent with the assertion found in The Urantia Book that an “inner ionosphere” exists in this region. See Inner Ionosphere Report

Monte Verde, Chile: Discover of an archaeological site pushes date raises controversy by providing strong evidence for modern humans in the Americas at least 14,000 years ago and probably as much as 50,000 years ago. See Early Migration to the Americas Report

Caltech, California Paleoecologist Heinz Lowenstam startled biologists and geologists alike with the discovery that many animals do what conventional science had considered impossible: they manufacture substances such as the iron-containing mineral magnetite within their bodies. See Magnetic Sensitivity Report

Whelan and Iben propose what has become the modern standard model for Type Ia supernova. Type 1a supernova, like Tycho’s Nova, have double star origins. The Urantia Book says Tycho’s Nova has a double star origin. See Tycho’s Nova Report Gobekli Tepe, Turkey: An American survey notes the existence of archaeological an artifact that is slightly exposed on a hill that does not look like a natural formation. Excavations begun in 1994 reveal a past that is mysterious and inconsistent with current theories but consistent with The Urantia Book. See Gobekli Tepe Report

Since the mid-1960s, the plate tectonic model has been rigorously tested. Because the model has been successfully tested by numerous methods, it is now called the plate tectonic theory and is accepted by almost all geologists. This is what gave broad acceptance to continental drift theory, which is discussed extensively in The Urantia Book. See Pangaea to Plate Tectonics Report

Hess and Dietz independently formulate hypotheses for see floor spreading. Dietz's model assumes the sliding surface was at the base of the lithosphere, not at the base of the crust. This leads to the theory of plate tectonics that then gives wide acceptance to continental drift theory. See Pangaea to Plate Tectonics Report Univeristy of Birmingham, England Biologist R. W. Murray identifies the extremely sensitive, biologically-based electromagnetic mechanism that allows sharks to be sensitive to the earth’s magnetic field. See Magnetic Sensitivity Report

L’Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland In 1960 a Norwegian archaeologist, Helge Ingstad, discovered the first evidence in North America of Viking settlement. It is from 1000 A.D., when The Urantia Book says they arrived. See Vikings Report

Dec. 22 Hanbury Brown and Hazard first discover the remnant of Tycho’s Nova as a strong radio source. This will eventually lead to corroborating The Urantia Book’s assertion that Tycho’s Nova had a double star origin. See Tycho’s Nova Report

Joe-Hin Tijo and Albert Levan were working with human embryonic tissue when they discovered that there [were] 46 chromosomes, not 48, which scientists had believed to be the case for over 30 years. This created consistency with a Urantia Book comment about the number “train determiners” in sex cells. See Chromosome Count Report

Lissmann follows up rudimentary experiments performed by Dijkgraaf in 1935. Lissmann shows that, located on the snout of sharks, the ampullae of Lorenzini have tiny hairs in them that are extremely sensitive to electromagnetic currents. See Magnetic Sensitivity Report

Dijkgraaf does rudimentary experiments that suggest sharks are sensitive to electromagnetic fields. His speculations do not get verified until 1958 by Lissmann, who shows that the ampullae of Lorenzini have tiny hairs in them that are extremely sensitive to electromagnetic currents. See Magnetic Sensitivity Report

Plymouth, England Alexander Sand of the Marine Biological Association recorded nerve pulses running from ampullae of Lorenzini, located in the snout of sharks, to the brain. This research was followed up in 1960sby biologist R. W. Murray of the University of Birmingham in England, which identified the extremely sensitive, biologically-based electromagnetic mechanism in the ampullae. See Magnetic Sensitivity Report
