The testimony of William S. Sadler on the anonymous sleeping subject is one of the main reasons why people believe the Urantia Book to be an authentic revelation. What would it do for the revelation's integrity if Sadler was shown to be a man of low integrity? If Sadler plagiarized numerous sources...

Hello friend. It was you who introduced me to the Urantia Book a few years ago. I'll always remember you because of that. Do you know much about the background to this webpage, and why the date of 12 November was chosen? UB 122:8.7 "On May 29, 7 B.C., there occurred an extraordinary conjunctio...

I agree with Boom. Man's laws have made a property of ideas. Since ideas are really all shared in the Cosmic Mind, plagiarism is a human social construct of the ego believing it actually owns anything.

I encounter people who refer to the so called "source material" in the UB as plagerism. I don't have an issue with it based on the [Acknowledgment] but I would like to hear from other readers about this charge and weather it really is plagerism?


Thanks

We also need to consider that had Lucifer not rebelled and messed up "the plan" then at least the issue of extreme genetic variation would not exist as it does for us in this age. We wouldn’t even be able to envision what such terms meant as applied to humans. That’s just one more example ...

Greetings...from a long time reader but first time poster. I must learn to quote and post from UB text but wanted to express my empathy for skeptism and my sympathy for those distracted by the need and search for "veracity". I too read the Revelation for many years without regard for or a...

@boomshuka -- Concerning the trilobites "eating mud", you need to think this through. Sure, there are sources that say this, as an informal description of what went on. More careful sources, however, explain it in the only way that makes sense. For example: These crawling and burrowing tr...
