Adam and Eve were the founders of the violet race, the ninth human race to appear on Urantia. They were imported from Jerusem, sent to our planet as teachers, ministers, and biologic uplifters for the evolutionary races. Regardless of its lagging cultural evolution, the human race had exhausted its biological potentials and was ready for an infusion of new qualities.
Adam and Eve were around eight feet tall, had blue eyes, light hair color—yellow, red, and brown—and fair complexions that emanated a violet glow. Their progeny was designed to interbreed with the human stock, and these sons and daughters were prepared to endow humanity with new characteristics—a heightened sense of humor, augmented artistic and musical abilities, imagination, love of adventure, curiosity, higher intelligence, and enhanced spiritual receptivity. The ordained plan was to build up a large reserve of pure-line Adamites before mating with selected members of the human race. The first Garden of Eden was located on a now-sunken peninsula off the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea, and here Adam and Eve served to educate and inspire the races for over a hundred years before defaulting in their mission. Reduced to mortal status and driven out of the garden, the Adamites were forced to find another location in which to carry on their work. At this point their family consisted of four generations numbering 1,647 pure-line descendants (most of whom chose to leave the planet after the default) plus two offspring of joint parentage with the mortal stock. After becoming established in the second garden between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in Mesopotamia, Adam and Eve had forty-two more children. Adam also elected to impregnate women selected by Eve from the highest strains of the Nodites and the surrounding tribes, and the world was thus given an additional 1,570 exceptional men and women, the biologic foundation for the later-appearing mighty Andite race.
Adamson, the eldest son of Adam and Eve, had often heard about the Nodite/Vanite settlements in the north, and sometime after the establishment of the second garden he determined to go in search of this land. (Adamson was then 120 years old and had fathered thirty-two pure-line children, all of whom, along with his mate, had elected to return to Jerusem after the default.) A company of twenty-seven followed Adamson northward. Here, in one of the easternmost of the old Vanite colonies, he discovered a beautiful young woman named Ratta who claimed to be the last pure-line descendant of the Prince´s staff. Adamson and Ratta were soon married, and their family of sixty-seven children gave origin to a great line of the world´s leadership. The Adamsonites, whose headquarters was in the region east of the southern end of the Caspian Sea near the Kopet Dagh, maintained a high civilization for almost seven thousand years from the time of Adamson and Ratta. Four diverse cultures successively arose there, fostered by four different groups of Adamson´s descendants.

The Secondary Midwayers
While both Adamson and Ratta were capable of producing human offspring, they were really superhuman. To their surprise, every fourth child born to them was often invisible. When the second unusual creature arrived, and since one was male and the other female, Adamson decided to mate them. The progeny of these beings constitute the secondary order of midway creatures. Within one hundred years almost two thousand were brought into being. The sixteen original children lived and died as mortals of the realm, but their electrically energized offspring live on and on, not being subject to the limitations of mortal flesh. They, together with their primary midwayer cousins, represent the permanent citizens of our planet.

For 30,000 years the cradle of civilization was in Mesopotamia where the peaceful violet race established its second center of culture and religion. It had long been the custom for "the sons of God" to mate with "the daughters of man," to find wives in the nearby "land of Nod," the land of the nearby Nodites. About 25,000 years ago, when population pressures forced them to expand, the Adamites began sending forth their excess inhabitants to the surrounding lands as teachers, traders, and explorers.
Egypt: Long before Adam arrived, the blue men of Europe and the mixed races of Arabia had driven the purer indigo man out of Egypt and far south on the African continent, but there were still pockets of the indigo race carrying extensive strains of the submerged orange and green races who had their better-developed settlements in what is now the Sahara desert. When the Adamites first began to penetrate Egypt, the Sicilian land bridge connected Europe to Africa, protecting the Mediterranean basin. Here Adamites met and mingled with European blue men from the north, Saharans from the south, and broad-headed Syrian Nodites from the east.
Egypt had received a very limited amount of Adamic blood before severe drought conditions in the Sahara forced its population of smaller-statured, dark-eyed, long-headed brunets to disperse. While the purer indigo elements continued their southward drift into central Africa, the mixed groups spread out in three directions: The more advanced tribes went west across northern Africa to Spain and adjacent parts of Europe, forming the nucleus of the later Mediterranean races; the least progressive division migrated to Arabia and thence through northern Mesopotamia and India to faraway Ceylon; and the central group headed north and east to the Nile valley and into Palestine.
Northern Africa, Turkestan: Not long afterward the isthmus of Gibraltar gave way as the result of an earthquake, creating one sea of the Mediterranean and raising it to the level of the Atlantic Ocean. This cataclysm disrupted the culture of the Mediterranean basin, and the westward-moving Adamites were forced to retreat. The great influx of Saharans on their heels drove them to the north and east of Mesopotamia, to the highland regions northwest of India, where they quickly assimilated the best of the Andonic cultures that had been preserved. Moving slowly, by 23,000 BC they reached Turkestan where, encountering mountain barriers and the then-expanded Caspian Sea, they settled down for many generations to hunt, herd, and till the soil. Here they became thoroughly admixed with the Nodites, Andonites, and red and yellow Sangiks. Gradually these blended Adamites extended their territory from Turkestan into southern Russia, and as they rounded into Europe, they encountered the blue man whose culture, though dominant, was far behind that of Mesopotamia.
Europe: The blue men were scattered all over Europe, and while Neanderthal absorption had greatly retarded their progress, their better centers were situated in the then fertile valleys of the Mediterranean basin and in northwestern Europe. The pre-Adamic European blue races were already a highly blended people carrying strains of both red and yellow, while on the Atlantic coast lands and in the regions of present-day Russia they had absorbed a considerable amount of Andonite blood. Slowly these Adamites united with the best of the blue man while ruthlessly exterminating the lingering strains of Neanderthal stock. A dozen or more progressive groups were thus produced, one of which has come to be known as the Cro-Magnon man. With Adamic infusion the Cro-Magnoid blue man commenced to establish settlements and engage in agriculture and commerce; he also began to save many of the mediocre captives as slaves whose descendants subsequently weakened the Cro-Magnon type.
By 19,000 BC the Adamites of the second garden were a real nation, numbering four and a half million, and had poured forth millions of their progeny into the surrounding lands
