Q: I just obtained The Urantia Book, but I see no mention of Atlantis and/or Lemuria. Can someone explain that to me?The Urantia Book explains the evolution of human history, the ebb and flow of civilization, but it does so in broad and general terms.
A: The story of the Garden of Eden from The Urantia Book has striking similarities to Plato's account of Atlantis, and some Urantia Book readers believe both stories are referring to the same historical event. In fact, one reader/believer went so far as to embark on more than one sea-going voyages designed to discover the truth of this possibility. You can read more about it HERE
It's entirely possible that Atlantis and Lemuria actually did exist, but there have been far too many significant episodes in the million years of human evolutionary history for the authors to include them all in this one book. So they highlighted episodes that have had a profound impact on the progress and evolution of our enduring human institutions, like the development of marriage, family, religion, government, education, war, and civilization in general.
The history of human life as presented in The Urantia Book is insightful, fulfilling, inspiring, unique, sublime, exciting, stimulating, positive and profoundly satisfying, so keep reading, you won't be disappointed.
