Read a book by Sioux Olivia: Dr.Sadler and the Urantia Book It was noted that some members of the Forum recounted seeing a seraphic transport. At the time the Sadlers were told by the revelators that the "train" of seraphic transports carrying survivors of a destroyed world would be passi...

Definitely possible (collapse of civilization), but I personally see China and the Middle East as bigger threats to world peace then Russia. Just my 2 cents.

Sorry I missed the part where she provided evidence for all her claims. It sounds like a lot of "someone heard from someone" type stories which are not usually used by "historians". It sounds like she came to the parts in the book on race and convinced herself that no celestial b...

That, combined with some of the other unreliable did in it (like Jesus getting away with "cleansing the Temple" and NOT being turned into Swiss cheese by the Roman guards around the place ), make for a text that simply can't be trusted. Your assuming that Jesus wasn't greatly feared by hi...

I understand, I just wasn't sure why 1934 was used to reference something that happened over 37,000 years ago.
Thanks.


That was the year when the book was finished. 1955 is not the actual date the authors wrote the book.

I disagree. Knowing that TUB is written by celestial beings matters. Also that site is filled with speculation there is no proof that Sadler wrote anything. The "parallel" studies that Mathew Block did involve books that Sadler wrote after having the revelation. So those don't count as evi...

Yaakov001, It was my impression that the section on Jesus' life in the Urantia book was to give us a clear, complete, detailed record of what actually happened. Saying that upon his birth, the year was 7 BC doesn't seem very clear to me, nor does it mention that this way of reckoning BC and AC time...

The book is not meant to be an affirmation of what you already believe, its supposed to be a revelation. When I come across something that rubs me the wrong way I assume that there is some distortion in the way I am thinking about something that is causing this and as it so often turns out that is a...

If "truth" is not also "beautiful" and "good", then it can't be "truth", can it? So what is this "truth" everyone is talking about? Our universe is perfecting therefor it is just as good as that which is perfect. Something need not be perfect in ord...

Hi Ángel, The phrase "confusion worse confounded" is borrowed from the English poet John Milton: "With ruin upon ruin, rout on rout, Confusion worse confounded" (Paradise Lost, Book II, line 996). It apparently means: "disorder made worse than before" (http://www.infop...

This is a good definition.

GOD is a word symbol designating all personalizations of Deity.

So then the question is, what is Total Deity :-#

hordes of semisavages I would speculate that because TUB calls these people semisavages that they were a group of people who were not even functioning at a human level. In fact they probably had no moral character at all and where functioning at a very low level, probably at a level we wouldn't eve...

On the other hand, the status of Caligastia, for example, being apparently in limbo, is very intriguing. It almost sounds as if he might ultimately accept a plan containing some type of partial rehabilitation. I'm guessing that partial rehabilitation could work in the present universe age whereas f...

Why normal?.


Before Jesus came Caligastia and crew could coerce a "abnormal" minded person. Essentially someone who wasn't sane or functioning as a regular human. But now even those people are safe.
