One can also not say that man has developed out of these Pre-Adamites, because he was a new creation.

2010 December 11
Long before first men dwelled on earth, which were equipped by God with free will and intellect, man-like beings existed already. So these pre-men – the Pre-Adamites – could therefore not be considered as proper men, because their nature, their appearance and everything they do corresponded more to an animal, which is still far behind in its development, only the form was like that of a man, and so it happened that later these creatures were called pre-men, but which could not stand a comparison with man, who was in possession of free will and understanding, which he was now to also use properly intellectually.

Some time ago I calculated the time of the creation of Adam and came to year 4174 before Christ.
For this I had used data from the Bible and with them I could draw up a quite complete time table from the creation of Adam to the beginning of the building of the temple by Solomon through the simple joining together of years. The year of the beginning of the building of the temple is the year 966 before Christ in history and with this there was then also, at least for me, the year of the creation of Adam known.
Especially the details given in Genesis 5 seem to be determined to emphasize the accuracy of these durations. There it is always detailed how old the father was when the son got born, how many years he then still lived, and with this one would already have the age of the father at death, but then still the age at death of the father is given: “And all the days of … were … years: and he died.”
And also the completeness of these details, that therefore no-one was left out, is confirmed through Jude verse 14, for there it reads, “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam.”
So the whole gives the impression to have been recorded and written down quite reliably and all these details seem to have also been orientated to not have been meant to be symbolic but real periods of time appropriate to our understanding.
The Bible of course has many layers of meaning and something that can be interpreted quite naturally, can also have a spiritual meaning too, or several.
Especially when it is about periods of time one has to always keep this in mind and then one obviously immediately thinks of 2 Peter 3:8, “that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
But this accuracy of periods of time in Genesis 5 does not seem to apply to periods of time which can be found in Genesis 1, where details of days are given. One reason for this would already be 2 Peter 3:8. Another would be the fact that the duration of one day is for us the time in which the earth rotates once around itself, and whether the earth always, especially at that time, turned about itself with the same speed, may be questionable. And on top of that one has to consider that the creation of the material world is described with these days, therefore the earth did not yet exist or was still coming into being and therefore these time data refer to something which was not really yet in existence.
The report about creation from Genesis 1 Verse 1 to the creation of man can probably time wise hardly be understood that one can reckon with periods of time comprehensible to us.
When one moves the creation of Adam to a time which is relatively close, when one therefore assumes that men exist for only about 6000 years, when one therefore assumes that Adam was created in the year 4174 before Christ, then one seems to be immediately in conflict with what science tells us about this matter.
But the problem is then not with us, but with science, for it is of course science, or more accurately so-called science, which leaves aside the spiritual, which makes the difference.
It is especially the I-consciousness, free will, the ability of intelligent and comprehensible thinking, what makes us a divine-like being and distinguishes us from an animal. And this difference needs not at all to appear bodily. An animal-like being, which man really is outwardly, can look outwardly like another animal-like being, but what makes the difference, is the soul and the spirit inside the being.
So when so-called science deals with discoveries of old human remains, then these remains may come from beings, which were quite similar to man, but exactly only outwardly similar. The spiritual that was at that time inside the being, today’s scientists will hardly be able to comprehend.
These introductory words are now followed by what I read today:
14. and 15. July 1965. B.D. NR. 9015.
Long before first men dwelled on earth, which were equipped by God with free will and intellect, man-like beings existed already, whose assignment it was to make earth suitable for following mankind. They carried out instinctively, i.e. driven by nature’s law, works – by them being active to preserve themselves, they picked fruit, harvested products of the land, and built up homes for themselves – they did everything what instinctively served their advantage. But they could not be called to account for everything they did because inside of them a being had not yet been embodied, which held all particles of a fallen original spirit in itself. These beings were already very similar to men; bodily they were of the same shape, but they were neither I-conscious nor could they communicate between each other, only the desire was strong in them to preserve themselves, and they often reached a high age; they as it were served creation by contributing to the reshaping of the surface of the earth, which was always more prepared to offer men a stay which corresponded to their needs. But no assignments had yet been given to those beings; they merely served the not yet matured original spirits as last maturation possibility, which they were then to continue as man with free will and intellect. So these pre-men – the Pre-Adamites – could therefore not be considered as proper men, because their nature, their appearance and everything they do corresponded more to an animal, which is still far behind in its development, only the form was like that of a man, and so it happened that later these creatures were called pre-men, but which could not stand a comparison with man, who was in possession of free will and understanding, which he was now to also use properly intellectually. One can also not say that man has developed out of these Pre-Adamites, because he was a new creation, which God only then put out, when many of the first original spirits awaited their embodiment. Pre-man was one of the many creations, which all had to fulfil their purpose, to prepare a home for later following man, which guaranteed a carefree earth life for him. (15.7.1965) The Pre-Adamites were those human-like beings, which could not be called to account because they led an animal life, where all instincts revealed themselves – who lived long before man on earth – who had no I-consciousness and could only live in groups – who were therefore only there found where later men were once to stay, for whom they prepared the actual area through a regular activity. They were innate to those beings and expressed themselves in the cultivating of wide stretches of fields, in methodical spreading of essential substances and the harvesting again of such stretches of land. All this they did unconsciously, out of a natural drive to preserve themselves. They fought each other, and the stronger won. And so they also contributed that again and again new spirit beings incarnated, when also only for shorter times, where they proved their strength, where more or less strong drives came into play, which became weaker and weaker the longer they lived, and then also slowly reached maturity to now be able to enter the last embodiment as man. Therefore human-like beings existed already long before first men, which however cannot be linked to proper men. They were certainly comparable with them in their outer form; but they dwelled like animals – both in their drives as well as in their way of reproduction, which developed according to the substance of their souls, and also belonged to the many works of creation, which again disappeared, when they had fulfilled their earth assignment, therefore the beings no longer needed such creations, and which now completely died out like so many creations, which earth held for a time to then make again space for new creations. But it cannot be said man in his present form has developed out of these pre-human creations, but he was and is a new creation, endowed with free will and intellect, which now had to prove itself, therefore also received back the I-consciousness. To what degree those Pre-Adamites could also have a certain intellect at their disposal depended merely on the degree of maturity of the soul particles held in them, but which were not able to think and that intellect was expressed in the creating activity only, therefore was achieved unconsciously. But this activity has also created the greatest miracle works, as these can often be seen in nature, that ways were formed where these beings could get to one another, that they created gorges and underground passages and so therefore have first created the prerequisites for men, that these then could lead the proper life when the time had come where the first original spirits could embody themselves as men. The more men now spread, (original spirits now waited to get embodied), the more also pre-men retreated, which certainly always only happened step by step until then the human race inhabited earth and for these the time of probation started, where now every once fallen original spirit was to stand the test, but that is why man also has to be equipped with I-consciousness, intellect and free will to now to go the way over this earth, which again returns him to the father from whom he once went out. Amen. B.D. NR. 9015.
