You another good point re Melchizedek.
As I pointed out earlier; Is not exactly who Melchizedek was in history that is important it is the message!
I don't think that he would have to be the first human upon earth, quite the opposite, if he was the first human then who would he be preaching to! Indeed I would be extremely surprised (no quite shocked actually - based upon some of your reasoning's) if you was going to tell me that the first humans on earth were Adam and Eve. I read somewhere that in times of old there was up to quarter of a billion people on the planet! If that is the case then he would have plenty people to preach to. As to where Melchizedek got his reasoning - God only knows :-)
I think it's important to point out that in these times of technology, The Ras is very fortunate that they can see images off H.I.M in the flesh, indeed I myself have spoken to many people who have either seen H.I.M. or spoken to him -It surprising what they had to say about their recollections, bearing in mind most where in their 80's.
But the main point is that even though time does make things fade there are those things that endure whether as concepts or just within the minds of people.
with nuff thanks and kind regards
