Thanks for telling me how wrong I am, I appreciate it. Sometimes I feel "right", but perhaps it is just the cheap coffee high. :shock: And I always enjoy getting berated on a thread that I start where I ask for HELP. lol Unfortunately, Stephen just confirmed for me as to why I stopped visi...

Chris Halvorson is a prominent UB reader with a physics degree who worked at the National Center for Atmospheric Research for numerous years BUT I highly doubt they would even allow anything from him. Skeptics seem to be taking control of the UB wiki page. Anyways, religion is not based "on the...

Bookshuka... this is true, but I think many, many more people can become UB readers if it is presented properly with interreligious harmony. Consider the following... 92:5.16 The future of Urantia will doubtless be characterized by the appearance of teachers of religious truth — the Fatherhood of Go...

Thanks for the heads up Todd. Yes, Bart... the UB does not talk about a singularity in connection with the dark islands, but I think the idea that anything goes to infinity in time & space as a bit ridiculous eh? "Well-nigh unbelievable" density is good enough for me. And the fact that...

Hey Everyone, I'm trying to add a section entitled, "Scientific Corroborations" to the wikipedia page... but AS ALWAYS the editors with an agenda to downgrade the Urantia Book keep erasing my edit. Isn't it amazing that they allow a whole section on "Criticism of the Science" whi...

On dictionary.com it states "preferred" as a synonym... I think that sums it up. It's the ambiguity between "select" as in choosing and "select" as in valuable. :o

I think it's also suggestive of location... namely the continental shelves, basins, and inland seas. I don't think life is usually started or fostered in the deep oceans excluded from sunlight. The shallow waters are more nursery-like.

The consituents that are "extinguished" I think are mind, personality, and associated identity. The mind is simply taken away it being just a mechanism to think. Identity will go back to the "cosmic potentials" and personality will be absorbed into the "oversoul of creation....

Hi Yoder and Everyone, It appears to me that you are a little preoccupied with the Devil, Satan, Caligastia etc. This is a common inclination from those with a Christian background---some UB readers frequently bring up Caligastia influencing the world. Luckily for me, I found the UB at the tender ag...

I always thought it would be cool to have my dead body float in a stick raft out into a lake and have my posse shoot flaming arrows onto it. Go out in a flame...I think that is from some movie. Anyone hear about the Indian phenomenon of very religious persons lighting themselves on fire? The commone...

I think that was the part where he was referring to how the Urantia Book sounds other-worldly and authoritative. I can see how a new reader would be somewhat jarred by the UB. We all went through the process of digesting the strangeness of the UB, such as incorporating it's vocabulary for example. B...

The host starts talking about the UB at the 42:30 mark. It's pretty interesting... not everyday there is a radio show on the UB excluding Cosmic Citizen. Here's the link to the show...

The star sparkled in her eye, as if eternity were ensconced inside her. I looked into the starry realm, and I transcended the vastness of space. I was there, yet here, the sounds echoed, yet just began, her wonderful smell embraced me, yet went before me. I looked into her coffin from the first time...
