Do you believe it wise to promote the idea that all Urantia could and should become garden-like? Absolutely. But building gardens takes investments of time and resources. The fast developing areas I work near are meagerly embellished with greenery. I think it's a question of values. The founders of...

I am confused. I thought the admirable scientific method had nothing to do with faith but only with logic, reason, observation , proofs, and substantiation. Or modern science anyway. Science originated within the religious community but broke off 150 years ago or so early in the Darwinian age and s...

76:4.2 (850.8 ) Eve did not suffer pain in childbirth; neither did the early evolutionary races. Only the mixed races produced by the union of evolutionary man with the Nodites and later with the Adamites suffered the severe pangs of childbirth. Why would that be the case? Possibly the geometry and...

There have been a similar set of dream experiences recently. One aspect that I now recognize is an element of travel, even flying or skipping across water (for example) at a very pleasant speed as if propelled by gravity while observing an exquisitely changing landscape unfold while moving. Maybe th...

Even more interesting (and revealing!) is the transition from Homo sapiens to Homo sapiens-sapiens : Link 1: homo sapiens-sapiens Link 2: The Evolution of Homo sapiens-sapiens Is this distinction distinguishing the Andonites from the Sangiks? Hi Nigel, good question. I think the answer must be some...

There is an emergency procedure for evacuating survivable humans on a doomed planet: 51:2.2 (582.2) Adams and Eves are semimaterial creatures and, as such, are not transportable by seraphim. They must undergo dematerialization on the system capital before they can be enseraphimed for transport to th...

Hi Daniel, What you are describing reminds me of a couple of passages that I just found by searching for "terrestrial escape". 49:5.32 (568.3) 7. Techniques of terrestrial escape. There is fundamentally only one way in which individual human life can be initiated on the inhabited worlds, a...

There are some references to planetary systems being over 300 billion years old, if I remember correctly. I think those were fairly local, either in this minor sector or Nebadon. 57:1:3 (651.5) 987,000,000,000 years ago associate force organizer and then acting inspector number 811,307 of the Orvont...

Hi Pethuel, The physicists seem to be probing the pre-electronic or subatomic realm of matter. They have evidence that a new particle that fits there can be brought into existence or separated from the atom. 42:4.12 (474.2) The existence of pre-electronic forms of matter is indicated by the two atom...

I'm not sure why the topic is located here in Abner's Corner for sensitive and controversial topics....but here we are.


The topic feels sensitive in being a personal experience. At the moderator's discretion it could be moved to Spiritual Experiences.

Does the soul experience fear I wonder? I would not think so. Does morontial mind know anxiety or fear? Of what? Confusions and uncertainties? Interesting. Not animal fear. But I imagine there must be a supermaterial counterpart to fear. I believe the soul is often conscientious. It must be to be b...

Thanks for those references Rick. I was telling a friend about the experience and after a bit of thought declared that dreams, maybe often, express the real wishes of the soul. Or the fears or vulnerabilities of the soul if such is the case. I believe we are told that the adjuster does its most effe...

In expressing this question and observation I do understand that there will be some who are fully incapable of understanding the situation and will tend to express heavy negative criticism of this post. My question is, I believe, what entity or influence would sponsor dreams which impress the dreame...

For me, some of the information in TUB relating to science and history is powerful intellectual support of its authority. At the time the book was first printed, many things the authors state were either unknown to any scientist or conflict strongly with the understanding of the times. I'd have to s...
