Regarding Riktare's claims of mortal pre-existence and our pre-existent "agreement" (deal, bargain, contract) with God (in Paradise and before or beyond time and in Eternity itself one must presume) Why do you say such falsehoods? I did not and would not say that mortals pre-exist in the ...

Our first moral decision is a contract??? Your focus and compulsion is on "contract". That term was offered by someone here and can be serviceable. Creating straw men of your own design and mentally fighting yourself with such constructions is usually what is known on the internet as &quo...

How can a person "agree" to something if they don't recognize that it's happening? I wonder if the question is muddled between pre-existence of Urantia beings as a group vs. pre-existence of each individual identity? I think it is a very human tendency to prefer to think of ourselves as s...

But doesn't the birth of the soul imply some sort of agreement? The human needs to make a moral choice. The person at least agrees to take part in the game, though they may not immediately recognize they have done so. And yes, of course many mortal lives are lived partly cooperating with the adjuste...

Imagine that time is a technique of the Trinity that makes possible the womb that makes possible the birth of those trillions of (effectively unpredictable) free agents in eternity. Our extraordinary origin (at a point in that bestowal of time) makes it possible for us to become precisely the sort ...

It is also unfortunate that you Riktare seem so intent to substantiate and perpetuate the mythologies of superstition the Professor inquired about and also answered in the first line of his inquiry here. I did nothing of the sort. At the end of my last message I asked all readers to imagine what a ...

To pre-exist would mean a retreat or reversion or reboot and loss of prior experiential gains and progress. This is completely contrary to the teachings of the UB. Did the intuition that evoked the idea get garbled in the expression of the statement above? Michael certainly pre-existed before his h...

Time is real. Most things and most beings have/had a beginning, a point in time origin. Time is real to us. Have you thought to research what the revelators say about the relationship of time to The Paradise Trinity? As a hint to the final analysis (from a creature's perspective) please see the pap...

Hello Professor! It's funny that you ask this. I've never heard of the concept of soul contracts or anyone talk about the exact question you ask. But I have long speculated that such may actually be the case! Here is my thinking: We have been told that time is not linear. It is rather circular in na...

Interesting question Professor! Like the opinions above, it seems to me consistent with the message and spirit of the revelators to elevate our concept, of what in political or economic terms might be called globalism, to a person's very own sense of value in more truly becoming a citizen of the pla...

Thanks Rick. It makes so much difference seeing that on a map (for those of us who are visually oriented).

Extremely unlikely in my opinion. The object hovers and bobs as if it's playing at something and has no "business" purpose. Considering that there is some type of carnival going on at the same time I would guess it is a laser projection or maybe a man-made plasma object possibly attached t...

...While you have assembled some beautiful melodies on Urantia, you have not progressed musically nearly so far as many of your neighboring planets in Satania. If Adam and Eve had only survived, then would you have had music in reality; but the gift of harmony, so large in their natures, has been s...
