The Genesis Race | a review

'A New Life in the Sea' by Michael LombardiWill Hart’s ‘The Genesis Race’ is a well developed compendium of thoughts and theories as to the origin of the human race and its propensity for evolving towards civilization. Hart emphasizes throughout the text that the sudden impulse towards civilization across the globe some 6000 years ago needed some organized and intelligent precursor to introduce the various technological, communication, and survival mechanisms that we have since discovered about the ancients. Without directly declaring that human civilization has benefited from extra-terrestrial (as in ‘alien’) intervention until the book’s last chapter, the thread throughout is one where humans have a uniqueness in our free will, rather than rely solely on animal instincts, and the rather short time frame by which we have evolved to think our way through problems is in fact too short to be the result of a natural evolutionary process.

Hart describes consistencies among the ancient civilizations – from Sumer to Central America – where ‘the gods’ all played an intricate role in delivering gifts of technology and knowledge as the catalysts for cultural evolution. Each historical account appears to parallel Judeo-Christian Biblical accounts, indicating that at least with the limited physical archaeological evidence in hand, many of the stories hold a degree of truth.

Throughout this course of self-study into Atlantean theory, the start of civilization, and human evolution gets more and more interesting, particularly as patterns are exposed in ancient human history, as well as patterns in climate change. The challenge becomes not getting overwhelmed by theory, and probing deep enough to find facts; as facts are hard to find when we are dealing with events taking place more than 6000 years ago.

In many ways, exposing and learning from our past is taking us on a journey to realize and find clarity in our future here on Earth.

    According to the Bible, Adam and Eve were the first humans created by God, who lived approximately 6,000 years ago. According to the science, humans existed a long time before. The two lines of thought can be easily united, thanks to the omnipotence of God, who in the beginning created humans in a reality where there was no concept of “evil”. Metaphorically speaking, Adam and Eve were expelled from this heavenly reality, find himself in another reality, namely in today’s reality that we all know, where there is the concept of evil, as well as that of the well, a reality where they were the first humans who experienced firsthand the life God had reserved for them (so they were the first humans in the “perfect” reality). From here it is clear that the story of Adam and Eve does not upset in the least bit the evolutionary linearity, and the seven days of creation relate to a creation took place in the reality of Adam and Eve, where everything was possible, even just create the stars, animals and everything else, without the scientific method and the time needed to have their share. In practice, they were the first men of God, whereas prehistoric man lived before Adam and Eve was a man, but it could be considered as an animal evolved from animals or by something else, which had two arms and two legs, and that may have hybridized with the descendants of Adam And Eve after they were “moved away” from the “perfect reality”, but in practice like if it had been created by God, because God is at the center of everything. God has endowed man about the concept of “infinity” and “eternity”, as well as other questions can not be explained through the use of the scientific method, thus making humans free to believe in God or not, in a reality for us tricky and necessary for the construction and continuation of his project. After looking a few days on the dilemma of how and when the human race was born, I gave birth to these hypotheses, thanks also to the differences found in Genesis between two stories that seem different, namely the creation of man on the sixth day and then the telling of the story about Adam and Eve. If we read the part of the genesis which explains the creation of man on the sixth day, and then the creation of Adam and Eve, you may notice a detail that differs between the two parts, suggesting that they are two completely different stories. In fact, in Genesis 1:26, we can see that man was created on the sixth day in the image and likeness of God, as in Genesis 5:1 (referring to Adam and Eve after 7 days of creation) the text of the Bible omits “image”, the fact that “image” and “likeness” indicate two similar concepts but different. I think “image” means human nature able to conceive the evil, so the suffering too, instead “likeness” denotes the inherited attributes of God as love, reason and they are both still together. Hypothetically speaking, the man of the sixth day is a creature evolved from animals or some other thing, then, over time has developed the reason as we know it today, while Adam and Eve were created in the Garden of Eden and as the Bible says in Genesis 2:7 (And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground) this means that God took their dust from the young earth and has created them in the Eden where the concept of time did not exists or was limited to the 7 days, this event happened before the creation of trees as written in Genesis 2:4,5,6: (These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground and God formed man of the dust of the ground). In this perfect reality there was no concept of evil, so they were only a “likeness” of God. After that they were created, were expelled from Eden, only to find themselves in this situation where had passed perhaps millions of years (because in the Eden the time for them had not passed), a situation in which the man who was created in the image and likeness did not exists anymore because of a mass extinction caused by some natural catastrophe or by “something else”, or perhaps still he existed, and the descendants of Adam and Eve hybridized this species, confirmed in Genesis 6:1,2,3,4, in which it says that the sons of God married the daughters of men (but may also be refers to the descendants of Cain, who turned away from God). The spirit of God will not dwell forever with the man because he also is flesh, living up to 120 years (mean that men of God who lived up to 900 years later live up to 120 years because of the fact that hybridizing with the daughters of men they are “contaminated” at the genetic level, partially losing genes that enabled him to live a lot longer. In fact, as you read in the Bible, the descendants of Noah live less and less, because according to Jewish tradition, Noah’s wife, whose name was Namaah was a descendant of Cain).
