. Here's the quote Ben, ...987,000,000,000 years ago associate force organizer and then acting inspector number 811,307 of the Orvonton series, traveling out from Uversa, reported to the Ancients of Days that space conditions were favorable for the initiation of materialization phenomena in a certa...

Quote:
In response to your first point about the age of the universe. TUB states the Universe is approx. 1 Trillion years old (Paper 57).



Hi Ben,

Would you please cite the paragraph?

Thx, Rick.


Hi Rick,

57:1:3 I could have misread the passage, but it does say 987 billion years.

This is more a question than a skeptic's complaint but I felt this might be the better forum. Two items will suffice to make my point I think. The first is that the Urantia book states the age of universe as at least one order of magnitude larger than what we now know to be accurate. Each scientifi...

It's not all good news for the UB, however. The UB says that the date of life implantation was only 550,000,000 years ago. The scientific evidence, however, indicates that life is much older than this--well over 3 billion years. So unless there is a large and systematic dating error, the UB is just...

I had thought I heard in these forums that Gene Roddenberry was a reader of TUB. Is this correct? Because I saw on his wikipedia page that he was an atheist.

Here is the relationship b/w Enoch and TUB. I know Jesus got the name Son of Man from the Book of Enoch, and that he had a copy of the book or access to it as I recall.

There are a few heartwarming stories that are urban legends. I don't know how much stock truthbook puts into these stories, but there are some that are not true. The only one that comes to mind right now is the one about Nat King Cole's widow getting picked up on a rainy night in Alabama by a white ...

Dear J, The real key, and I believe the one most often overlooked when it comes to understanding what really causes depression or bi-polarism, or whatever diagnosis they come up with, has to do with the overall imbalance of the spiritual, physical, intellectual and emotional state of the individual...

The recent story about the kidnapped girl who was kept for 18 years has given "God" another bad rap. I know I'm not supposed to judge, but how can you not seethe with anger at the dude who kidnapped her and was a religious nut. Plus the wife who sat there and allowed it to happen! In some ...

Hey Al, Nice post. I have always thought of God as a humanist as far as the humanist desire to do right and advance progressively goes. Never seen too much of humanism though. It might not be a bad idea to see what common grounds there are in humanism and TUB religious philosophy. We definitely need...

Thanks for the information. That is very helpful. The reason I asked is that my website has been getting hits from India, and they liked my statement of faith, and one person wanted to join my church, and wanted to know how to go about it. I told him to get TUB, and we could go from there. Thanks ag...

Will someone please put my soul to rest and offer some works of comfort? Paper 195 Urantia is now quivering on the very brink of one of its most amazing and enthralling epochs of social readjustment, moral quickening, and spiritual enlightenment. Of course, that is not the quote I was originally go...

Hey Dave, Brother Joe is in my prayers. He was the first person to reach out to me when I joined this forum, and his love and compassion come through each and everyone of his posts. I pray the Father gives wisdom to his doctors and nurses to care for him in the best way possible, and that brother Jo...
