Part Three: THE NODITES - 500,000 BC
Copyright © 2004 by Saskia Praamsma

THE PRINCE’S STAFF
Concurrent with the appearance of the six Sangik races, the unseen Planetary Prince Caligastia and his supermaterial staff of volunteers arrived on Urantia to teach and minister to the almost one-half billion primitive human beings who were on earth at that time. The Prince´s headquarters, Dalamatia, was established at about the center of world population, in the Persian Gulf region of those days.
The one hundred staff members were ascendant morontia citizens of Jerusem, the headquarters of our local system of inhabited planets.  These beings had already lived and died on other worlds, and as descendant planetary missionaries on Urantia they were to have visible flesh-and-blood bodies. Permission had been granted to transplant Andonic DNA into the life forms projected for the staff´s use while on their mission. Fifty males and fifty females, chosen by the Life Carriers as representing the best surviving Andonite strains, were guided from various points on the planet to Dalamatia where the living material was extracted then transferred into the staff’s preconstructed bodies.

THE PRIMARY MIDWAYERS
With their new bodies the Caligastia 100 were now capable of procreating material offspring, but were instructed not to engage in sexual reproduction. They did, however, explore every phase of mind and soul liaison, and this experiment brought into being the first of the primary midwayers. This new creature was visible to the superhuman staff and their celestial associates but not to the human tribes. As these midway creatures are known on other worlds to be invaluable liaisons between the material and the angelic realms, the entire staff was authorized to produce similar beings, and, following the instructions of the pioneer pair, all were successful. Fifty thousand primary midway creatures were thus brought forth.

200,000 BC: THE NODITES     
When their work was cut short by the Lucifer Rebellion, the staff members who went astray chose Nod as their leader. Because the Caligastia 100 carried the Andonite gene package, one would expect that, if they engaged in sexual reproduction, their progeny would resemble other Andonite offspring. But when the 60 rebel staff members elected to procreate physical beings as their successors, their children were far superior to the Andonites and the Sangiks—physically, intellectually, and with regard to spiritual capacities. These mutant traits resulted from the presence in their bodies of powerful Jerusem life-maintenance circuits which caused the Urantia chromosomes to reorganize more after the local universe patterns (similar to how X-rays alter the DNA of plants and animals).

     The one hundred Andonite germ plasm contributors had in turn been modified so that the same life currents invested their bodies, and when they mated among themselves they too produced superior offspring. The progeny of these two groups constitutes the ancestry of the Nodites, the eighth race to appear on Urantia.

     The near-destruction of Dalamatia by the surrounding semi-savage tribes and the city’s subsequent submergence under a tidal wave forced the Nodites to move north and east where they founded the new city of Dilmun; their dwelling place was known as "the land of Nod." The Nodites multiplied, and when some of their descendants began to spill over into the adjoining lands and intermarry with the Andonic and Sangik tribes, the purer Nodites attempted to build a tower to symbolize their racial unity. Conflict and confusion led to the dispersion of the Nodites, who eventually divided into four great groups:

The western (Syrian) Nodites journeyed west and settled in the region of Syria where they united with the Andonites. They contributed much to the later appearing Assyrian stock.

The eastern (Elamite) Nodites migrated eastward into Elam (Persia, Iran) and mated with the mixed Sangik tribes. Becoming largely Sangik in nature, they continued to maintain a civilization superior to that of the surrounding barbarians.

The central (pre-Sumerian) Nodites were a small group who remained for thousands of years at the mouth of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. They eventually furnished the Nodite ancestry which blended with the Adamites to found the Sumerian peoples of historic times.

The northern Nodites and Amadonites—the Vanites, a fourth group, also arose. Those Andonites who had remained loyal were led by Van and Amadon, and were known as the Amadonites. They represented the best of the Andonic culture. Their followers early withdrew to the same highlands west of India where the Badonan tribes had once been exempt from hostile attacks, and they also established centers in the Lake Van/Caspian Sea area. Here they were joined by some of the descendants of the rebel Dalamations, and together these two groups were known as the Vanites. They continued to furnish leadership for the world until the arrival of Adam and Eve.
