The Origin and Nature of Mankind

The Origin and Nature of Mankind

Odds are good that when you look at the population of a land, you see that its people came from some much older land, the pattern of history being a pattern of migration.
If the people who explored and migrated were a warrior culture, then they conquered the native people and became their rulers even if those people were culturally superior.

The pattern of such a history indicates that as a rule, conquest and domination were what inspired and drove the motivation of all such mixtures of cultures. It appears that there is something in men that, when feeling empowered, compels them to envy the accomplishments of other peoples, and to lust to dominate other peoples who are not members of the conquering club. That tendency is more than an occasionally appearing thing. It is the primary thing. That indicates that the psychology of man, or men, has an undetectable drive which is expressed whenever a ruler and his loyal subjects feel empowered. Think Napoleon, Hitler, etc.

That perennial fact of history shows that men have an innate tendency toward self-elevation over others, which, in the United States, is the only explanation for the pain that the southern States were willing to suffer in order to preserve their racial superiority over descendants of Africans.
So deep is the drive to feel superior, and so great have been the lengths that men have gone to in order to assert their superiority, that one cannot but assume that such a trait is ingrained. That means it is passed on from parents to children in perpetuity, just like genetic traits, only it is above physical genetic traits. It is a genetically inherited spiritual trait.
Just as all features of individuals are not carried in the DNA but also in the epigenes which are located on the surface of the DNA molecules, so spiritual / personality traits are like epigenes that are in addition to biological genetics.

That tendency of men to dominate others and feel superior is a trait that can be traced back to the origin of human nature, almost. The original template of humanity was not tainted with such a self-serving nature, but it became infected with it due to spiritual influences that altered the spiritual epigenetic code, just as an individual’s behavior can alter their own epigenetic code which then is replicated in reproductive cells and thus passed on to subsequent generations even though it is something that is in effect a defect, a deficiency, an aberration, a flaw.

The introduction of such a flaw of character was the result of the spirit of Self possessing the thought process (and character) of the Archangel Lucifer.
His subjects in the kingdom that he ruled began to take their cues from his new personality, and the idea of domination of lesser beings became ingrained into their thinking, as it was in his, -and that thinking became so deeply ingrained that it formed an epigenetic type of element in their makeup which was eventually passed on to their children directly, -not just culturally.

When, in time, those children migrated to Earth after their society had reached an exceeding advanced stage, their tendency was not to selflessly assist the lesser sentient beings of Earth to advance as they had, but to make themselves gods and dominate all those within the reach of their power.
They came to Earth with or without female companions, but they found that human females were, in appearance, equal or superior to their own females. With both humans and Luciferians having the same creator and creation origin, they were biologically compatible. Thus the children that were born to them inherited their innate predilection to be the top dog or to serve the top dog. To be number one.

That explains almost the whole of human history in regard to migration, expansion, and conquest. It was all about domination. Consider the Mongol hords, the powerful reason for the Great Wall of China…a people who lived and breathed for only one thing: to conquer and dominate other people.

Thus the history of Mankind is the history of the promulgation of Self via power and its dominance. That is the actual explanation for the “Fall” of mankind. It was genetic. The genetic code was infected with a spiritual nature that was self-centered, and worse, corrupt because Self has no pangs of conscience about being corrupt, about being upright, open, and honest, -about NOT lying, stealing, killing, enslaving, and dominating all others who are not a member of the inner circle, and even some who are.
The history of monarchies is littered with tales of brother-killing-brother to protect the right to be king.

So that is the history of mankind; seeking freedom from domination, seeking control, seeking power to maintain control, seeking power to exert control, seeking even greater control, seeking greater power to exert even great control, obtaining greater power only to find that power corrupts because it awakens the ingrained, innate nature that infected the race of humans that traces back to the children of Lucifer, who in time mingled with the descendants of Adam and Eve (who were created without the infection of Self, just like their predecessors, the “angels” who were created by and served “the Word of God” on the original paradisaical home planet of most life forms, including humans. It’s location, size, and character is unknown, but it was the source of the explorers and civilizers of other worlds, including Earth).

Naked mole rat found to defy Gompertz’s mortality law

https://phys.org/news/2018-01-naked-mole-rat-defy-gompertz.html

January 30, 2018 by Bob Yirka, Phys.org

A team of researchers at Google-owned Calico Life Sciences LLC has found that the naked mole rat defies Gompertz’s mortality law. In their paper published in eLife, the group describes their study of the unusual-looking rodent and describe some of its unusual traits.

Naked mole rats are very nearly hairless. They evolved that way by living in a harsh underground environment. They are also almost ectothermic (cold blooded). And now, it seems they do not age—at least in the traditional sense. Reports of long-lived mole rats prompted the team at Calico to take a closer look—they have a specimen in their lab that has lived to be 35 years old. Most “normal” rats, in comparison, live to be just six years old, and they age as they do so.

Naked mole rats also have some other interesting biological features—they very rarely develop cancer, they experience very little pain and they have been found able to survive without oxygen for up to 18 minutes by going into a plant-like vegetative state. Also, they never reach menopause, and can have offspring right up until their death—and their hearts and bones never show signs of aging. But it was their longevity that was the focus of this new effort.

The team collected what they describe as 3,000 points of data regarding the lifespan of the , and found that many had lived for 30 years. But perhaps more surprisingly, they found that the chance of dying for the mole rats did not increase as they aged. All other mammals that have been studied have been found to conform to what is known as Gompertz’s mortality law, which states that the risk of death for a typical mammal grows exponentially after they reach sexual maturity—for humans, that means the odds of dying double every eight years after reaching age 30. This, the researchers claim, suggests that mole rats do not age—at least in the conventional sense. They do eventually die, after all.

The research team concludes by suggesting that a lot more work needs to be done with naked mole rats to find out if they are aging, but are doing so very slowly. Most captive , they note, are killed for research purposes, so there is little good data on how long they actually live.

Abstract
The longest-lived rodent, the naked mole-rat (Heterocephalus glaber), has a reported maximum lifespan of >30 years and exhibits delayed and/or attenuated age-associated physiological declines. We questioned whether these mouse-sized, eusocial rodents conform to Gompertzian mortality laws by experiencing an exponentially increasing risk of death as they get older. We compiled and analyzed a large compendium of historical naked mole-rat lifespan data with >3000 data points. Kaplan-Meier analyses revealed a substantial portion of the population to have survived at 30 years of age. Moreover, unlike all other mammals studied to date, and regardless of sex or breeding-status, the age-specific hazard of mortality did not increase with age, even at ages 25-fold past their time to reproductive maturity. This absence of hazard increase with age, in defiance of Gompertz’s law, uniquely identifies the naked mole-rat as a non-aging mammal, confirming its status as an exceptional model for biogerontology.

Think about this: UFOs and aliens have been appearing on Earth for thousands of years.  If the dead hairless asexual aliens (probably clones) depicted in morgue photos had a similar biological nature, they could hibernate for dozens or hundreds of years, not have to remain at mammal temperatures, not age even when actively alive, and conduct their ‘research’ millennium after millennium.  Now that we know that such a physiology is possible, new scenarios become not only conceivable but also possible.

At end of Ice Age, 10% of land surface burned (meteor fireballs)

https://phys.org/news/2018-02-ice-age-human-witnessed-larger.html

On a ho-hum day some 12,800 years ago, the Earth had emerged from another ice age. Things were warming up, and the glaciers had retreated.

Out of nowhere, the sky was lit with fireballs. This was followed by shock waves.

Fires rushed across the landscape, and dust clogged the sky, cutting off the sunlight. As the climate rapidly cooled, plants died, food sources were snuffed out, and the glaciers advanced again. Ocean currents shifted, setting the climate into a colder, almost “ice age” state that lasted an additional thousand years.

Finally, the climate began to warm again, and people again emerged into a world with fewer large animals and a human culture in North America that left behind completely different kinds of spear points.

This is the story supported by a massive study of geochemical and isotopic markers just published in the Journal of Geology.

The results are so massive that the study had to be split into two papers.

“Extraordinary Biomass-Burning Episode and Impact Winter Triggered by the Younger Dryas Cosmic Cosmic Impact ~12,800 Years Ago” is divided into “Part I: Ice Cores and Glaciers” and “Part 2: Lake, Marine, and Terrestrial Sediments.”

The paper’s 24 authors include KU Emeritus Professor of Physics & Astronomy Adrian Melott and Professor Brian Thomas, a 2005 doctoral graduate from KU, now at Washburn University.

“The work includes measurements made at more than 170 different sites across the world,” Melott said.

The KU researcher and his colleagues believe the data suggests the disaster was touched off when Earth collided with fragments of a disintegrating comet that was roughly 62 miles in diameter—the remnants of which persist within our solar system to this day.

“The hypothesis is that a large comet fragmented and the chunks impacted the Earth, causing this disaster,” said Melott. “A number of different chemical signatures—carbon dioxide, nitrate, ammonia and others—all seem to indicate that an astonishing 10 percent of the Earth’s land surface, or about 10 million square kilometers, was consumed by fires.”

According to Melott, analysis of pollen suggests pine forests were probably burned off to be replaced by poplar, which is a species that colonizes cleared areas.

Indeed, the authors posit the could have touched off the Younger Dryas cool episode, biomass burning, late Pleistocene extinctions of larger species and “human cultural shifts and population declines.”

“Computations suggest that the would have depleted the ozone layer, causing increases in skin cancer and other ,” Melott said. “The impact hypothesis is still a hypothesis, but this study provides a massive amount of evidence, which we argue can only be all explained by a major cosmic impact.”

Earliest Human Remains Outside Africa Discovered in Israel

For decades, scientists have speculated about when exactly the bipedal apes known as Homo sapiens left Africa and moved out to conquer the world. That moment, after all, was a crucial step on the way to today’s human-dominated world. For many years, the consensus view among archaeologists placed the exodus at 60,000 years ago—some 150,000 years after the hominins first appeared.

But now, researchers in Israel have found a remarkably preserved jawbone they believe belongs to a Homo sapiens that was much, much older. The find, which they’ve dated to somewhere between 177,000 and 194,000 years, provides the most convincing proof yet that the old view of human migration needs some serious re-examination.

The new research, published today in Science, builds on earlier evidence from other caves in the region that housed the bones of humans from 90,000 to 120,000 years ago. But this new discovery goes one step further: if verified, it would require reevaluating the whole history of human evolution—and possibly pushing it back by several hundred thousand years.

How Europeans “Evolved White Skin Theory” Thrown Out

March 23, 2016

http://sciencevibe.com/2016/03/23/new-finding-how-european-evolved-white-skin-theory-turned-upside-down/

NEW FINDING: How European evolved white skin theory has been thrown out! A new genetic analysis of an ancient European hunter-gatherer man has revealed that he had dark skin and blazing blue eyes which have lead scientist to rethink how white skin evolved. The new analysis of that DNA now shows the man had the gene mutation for blue eyes, but not the European mutations for lighter skin – and since the man, who lived in modern-day Spain only about 7,000 years ago, may mean that light-skin genes in Europeans evolved much more recently than previously thought.
The experts were astonished to find a combination of African and European genes in the ancient caveman, and they christened him La Brana 1. Scientists studied the hunter gatherer’s DNA after they found his frozen skeleton buried in a subterranean cave in Cantabria in northern Spain.

Nature – the journal – published the study which suggests that light skin evolved not to adjust to the lower-light conditions in Europe compared with Africa, but instead to the new diet that emerged after the agricultural revolution. “It was assumed that the lighter skin was something needed in high latitudes, to synthesize vitamin D in places where UV light is lower than in the tropics,” says co-author Carles Lalueza-Fox, a paleogenomics researcher at Pompeu Fabra University in Spain.

“What seems likely, then, is that the dietary changes accompanying the so-called Neolithic revolution, or the transition from food collection to food production, might have caused, or contributed to cause, this change,” said Guido Barbujani, president of the Associazione Genetica Italiana in Ferrara, Italy. In this food-production theory, the cereal-rich diet of Neolithic farmers lacked vitamin D, so Europeans rapidly lost their dark-skin pigmentation only once they switched to agriculture.  It was at this point that they had to synthesize vitamin D from the sun more readily.

In the food-production theory, the cereal-rich diet of Neolithic farmers lacked vitamin D, so Europeans rapidly lost their dark-skin pigmentation only once they switched to agriculture because it was only at that point that they had to synthesize vitamin D from the sun more readily.

Another study presented at the 84th annual meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists offered dramatic evidence of recent evolution in Europe and shows that most modern Europeans don’t look much like those of 8000 years ago. So while most of us think of Europe as the ancestral home of white people the study shows that pale skin, as well as other traits such as tallness and the ability to digest milk as adults, arrived in most of the continent relatively recently.

Other highlights:

  • The modern humans who came out of Africa to originally settle Europe about 40,000 years are presumed to have had dark skin, which is advantageous in sunny latitudes. And the new data confirm that about 8500 years ago, early hunter-gatherers in Spain, Luxembourg, and Hungary also had darker skin: They lacked versions of two genes—SLC24A5 and SLC45A2—that lead to depigmentation and, therefore, pale skin in Europeans today.
  • But in the far north—where low light levels would favor pale skin—the team found a different picture in hunter-gatherers: Seven people from the 7700-year-old Motala archaeological site in southern Sweden had both light skin gene variants, SLC24A5 and SLC45A2. They also had a third gene, HERC2/OCA2, which causes blue eyes and may also contribute to light skin and blond hair. Thus ancient hunter-gatherers of the far north were already pale and blue-eyed, but those of central and southern Europe had darker skin.
  • Then, the first farmers from the Near East arrived in Europe; they carried both genes for light skin. As they interbred with the indigenous hunter-gatherers, one of their light-skin genes swept through Europe, so that central and southern Europeans also began to have lighter skin. The other gene variant, SLC45A2, was at low levels until about 5800 years ago when it swept up to high frequency.

Five Variations of the Species “Humans”

by Sam Sewell

As human beings advance on the evolutionary scale, they learn how to transcend their lower, biologically driven influences. It would come as a surprise to most people to discover that there are actually five identifiable humanoid species still cohabitating on our planet.
1.) The most primitive humanoid species coexisting on Earth today is Homo neanderthalensis. This scientifically identified species is the result of cross-breeding between Homo sapiens and the now extinct Neanderthals.
Homo neanderthalensis physically resemble Neanderthals, with slightly more modern facial features. The hybrid Homo neanderthalensis are prone to be directed by their lower nature; instincts influence their conduct much more than intellect. Their behavioral patterns are more obviously determined by mating instincts and impulsive reactions to conflict.

When I gave this information to a male friend of mine, he responded “I’ve dated a few of those!” whereupon his sister replied “Sounds like my ex-husband!
Highly sexed people of both genders share this dominant, lower urge, which is apparent in this more primitive, humanoid sub-species.

2.) The next evolutionary advancement is Homo sapien. Their behavior is about evenly divided between intellect and instinct. They are heavily influenced by mating and conflict instincts, but they can be trained to intelligently manage their mating behaviors and their violence. The training is done by adult parents, cultural institutions, and the necessary structure implicit in law enforcement.

Homo sapien children exhibit most of the primitive behavior attributed to lower species: they bite, they hit, they throw tantrums, they have extreme emotional outbursts, and they need to be trained for as much as twenty years or more before they exhibit the kind of behavior usually associated with adult Homo sapiens.

Adolescent Homo sapiens frequently exhibit unbridled sexual behavior. The instinctually driven behavior of this species results in racial prejudice, sexism, many forms of mental illness, rape, sexual misconduct, crime, violence and even the initiation of wars.

3.) The next advancement has not yet been named by traditional science, however some anthropologists, paleontologists and biologists have observed and written about the more advanced traits of this group, which I will take the liberty of calling Homo noeticus (no•et•ic: From the Greek noēsis / noētikos, meaning inner wisdom, direct knowing, or subjective understanding.)
They are more influenced by the evolution of consciousness, than by biological evolution.
They naturally tend to react to their world via their volitional intellect, rather than being dominated by their physical desires, but they have not yet fully transcended their instinctually driven influences.
Under stress, they are still likely to revert to their lower-nature instincts. Homo noeticus would describe the species that appeared on our planet about 40,000 years ago.
The primary virtue of the Homo noeticus is that they have advanced to the point of exhibiting respect and affection toward all other humanoid entities. However, they will conduct defensive strategies to protect themselves from the humanoids of a lower nature.

Sexual aggression would be exhibited only rarely in the mannerisms of Homo-noetics. Their advanced, collective human consciousness is what French paleontologist and Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (who also discovered the famous Peking Man) called the “noosphere.” The noosphere is a postulated stage, or sphere of evolutionary development which is dominated by consciousness, the mind, and successful interpersonal relationships.

4.) The next human advancement, which I have also taken the liberty of naming, we call Homo spiritualis. These humanoids are more connected to cosmic consciousness and their intellects, than they are to their base instincts.

5.) The highest advancement that has been identified I call Homo transcendent. These humanoids are no longer burdened by biologically-driven reactions to their environment. Their higher nature has mostly elevated their responses beyond their instinctual biology.
Hindus call this state of advancement Sanatana dharma.
Buddhists call them Bodhisattvas; those who are able to reach nirvana, but delay doing so out of compassion in order to save suffering beings.

The Statement of Chemistry on the Origin of Life

The Statement of Chemistry on the Origin of Life –American Thinker

In his August 1954, Scientific American article, “The Origin of Life,” Nobel Prize winning Harvard Biologist George Wald stated,

“One only has to contemplate the magnitude of this task to concede that the spontaneous generation of a living organism is impossible. Yet here we are as a result, I believe, of spontaneous generation.”

What is “the magnitude of this task” that reasonably renders a natural origin of life “impossible?” Dr. Wald states,

“In the vast majority of processes in which we are interested the point of equilibrium lies far over toward the side of dissolution. That is to say, spontaneous dissolution is much more probable, and hence proceeds much more rapidly, than spontaneous synthesis.”

The processes of interest include building proteins, DNA, RNA, and lipids. Nature does not engage in the “processes” of building these life-essential molecules (synthesis); Nature, rather, dismantles them (dissolution), if they exist at all.

Why? Nature inexorably proceeds towards “equilibrium” (Chemical Equilibrium), the most stable state. For example, the most stable state for amino acids in Nature is individual amino acids, not proteins.

Building a protein, DNA, RNA, or lipid is an endothermic reaction, which is a reaction that requires an input of energy which will remain with the compound (until Nature takes it apart), plus an activation energy to cause the individual parts to combine. Over-simplifying, the reverse reaction, the destruction of the compound, dissolution, requires only the activation energy which is less energy than required for building, synthesizing, the compound. The dissolution, the destruction of the compound, releases the inherent energy in the compound and is termed an “exothermic” reaction. Nature prefers exothermic reactions, which for the life-essential compounds noted is destruction, not construction. Nature does not construct proteins, DNA, RNA, or lipids.

Dr. Wald further states,

“How do present-day organisms manage to synthesize organic compounds against the forces of dissolution? They do so by a continuous expenditure of energy. … A living organism is an intricate machine for performing exactly that function. … What we ask here is to synthesize organic molecules without such a machine. … it calls for phenomena and forces … some probably yet to be discovered.”

The “phenomena and forces” have not been discovered. The operating principle, Chemical Equilibrium, the foundation of Chemistry, the inexorable progress towards stability, towards death rather than life, will not be overcome, to any useful extent, by natural “phenomena and forces”, ever, in this Universe. That principle, Chemical Equilibrium, the principle upon which Nature’s Chemistry operates is absolute. What is required is an “intricate machine,” a living cell, in a very controlled environment, which uses energy with exceptional precision and design, to build rather than destroy — which is Nature’s direction. A living cell is incredibly complex, “intricate,” and all parts of the cell have to be in place simultaneously or it will not function at all; in fact, Nature will destroy any partial cell (which Nature could never construct at all). The term “simple cell” is the greatest oxymoron in the English language

Dr. Wald proffers probability as a possible solution (“yet … I believe,” because given enough time, Wald speculated, anything can happen), but time is not the savior; time leads to equilibrium, to dissolution, not to “anything,” at least in this Universe. And, if Chemical Equilibrium could be overcome, naturally, where probability would then be relevant, the incomprehensible number of compounds which could be formed could never be sorted, selected to construct anything useful. Both Chemical Equilibrium and probability are absolute blocks to life.

The problem is not what we don’t know; the problem, now revealed by microbiology, is what we do know.

“We now know not only of the existence of a break between the living and non-living world, but also that it represents the most dramatic and fundamental of all of the discontinuities of nature. Between a living cell and the most highly ordered non-biological system, such as a crystal or a snow flake, there is a chasm as vast and absolute as it is possible to conceive.” Michael Denton, Evolution, A Theory in Crisis, p. 249,250, 1985.

Absolute.
Science, specifically, Astronomy, origin of life research via chemistry, Biology, microbiology, the present ability to assess the efficacy of random mutation, Geology, Informatics, and Probability all lead to the conclusion that a designer was necessary.

The designer? Having reviewed the philosophies and religions of the world, the support for the different persuasions and the questions, there is no doubt in my mind that the Designer is the Person revealed in the pages of the Bible.

The statement of Chemistry is that “Life is not a natural phenomenon.”
That statement is absolute.
