Intelligent life on other worlds

Q: Is there intelligent life on other worlds?

A:  It is safe to say that yes, there definitely is intelligent life on other planets. The Urantia Book reveals what mankind has been thinking about for time immemorial—is there intelligent life somewhere other than Earth? The following quotes will help you to grasp a partial understanding of the intelligently planned universe, and the immensity of God's creation, of which we are but an apparent speck of dust (but a most beloved speck..) Clicking on any of these links will lead you to a greater explanation still.

The immensity of the far-flung creation of the Universal Father is utterly beyond the grasp of finite imagination; the enormousness of the master universe staggers the concept of even my order of being. But the mortal mind can be taught much about the plan and arrangement of the universes; you can know something of their physical organization and marvelous administration; you may learn much about the various groups of intelligent beings who inhabit the seven superuniverses of time and the central universe of eternity. (12:0.1)

Of the vast body of knowledge concerning the superuniverses, I can hope to tell you little, but there is operative throughout these realms a technique of intelligent control for both physical and spiritual forces, and the universal gravity presences there function in majestic power and perfect harmony. It is important first to gain an adequate idea of the physical constitution and material organization of the superuniverse domains, for then you will be the better prepared to grasp the significance of the marvelous organization provided for their spiritual government and for the intellectual advancement of the will creatures who dwell on the myriads of inhabited planets scattered hither and yon throughout these seven superuniverses. (15:0.3)

The myriads of planetary systems were all made to be eventually inhabited by many different types of intelligent creatures, beings who could know God, receive the divine affection, and love him in return. The universe of universes is the work of God and the dwelling place of his diverse creatures. "God created the heavens and formed the earth; he established the universe and created this world not in vain; he formed it to be inhabited." (1:0.2)

Only the Universal Father knows the location and actual number of inhabited worlds in space; he calls them all by name and number. (15:2.1)

A local universe is the handiwork of a Creator Son of the Paradise order of Michael. It comprises one hundred constellations, each embracing one hundred systems of inhabited worlds. Each system will eventually contain approximately one thousand inhabited spheres. (32:0.1)

On millions of inhabited worlds, tens of trillions of evolving creatures who may have been tempted to give up the moral struggle and abandon the good fight of faith, have taken one more look at Jesus on the cross and then have forged on ahead, inspired by the sight of God's laying down his incarnate life in devotion to the unselfish service of man. (188:5.5)"

Thanks for this great question. It is good to know that "the universe is friendly," and that it is mind-made and mind-managed; that mind is the mind of God. Jesus alluded to sheep "not of this fold," and they are everywhere in the universe of his making.
