From the year A.D. 1934 back to the birth of the first two human beings is just 993,419 years. ~ The Urantia Book, 62:5.1 (707.7)

URANTIA was registered as an inhabited world when the first two human beings—the twins—were eleven years old, and before they had become the parents of the first-born of the second generation of actual human beings. ~ The Urantia Book, 63:0.1 (711.1)

These two remarkable creatures were true human beings. They possessed perfect human thumbs, as had many of their ancestors, while they had just as perfect feet as the present-day human races. ~ The Urantia Book, 62:5.2 (707.8)

Many new emotions early appeared in these human twins. They experienced admiration for both objects and other beings and exhibited considerable vanity. But the most remarkable advance in emotional development was the sudden appearance of a new group of really human feelings, the worshipful group, embracing awe, reverence, humility, and even a primitive form of gratitude. Fear, joined with ignorance of natural phenomena, is about to give birth to primitive religion. ~ The Urantia Book, 62:5.4 (708.2)

Andon and Fonta had nineteen children in all, and they lived to enjoy the association of almost half a hundred grandchildren and half a dozen great-grandchildren. ~ The Urantia Book, 63:3.2 (713.2)
