welcome steve! It's really interesting you bring up the Thaioouba Prophecy. I read that book nearly 20 years ago at a very impressionable age, and while I am fortunate I found the Urantia Book only a few years afterwards, I still catch myself thinking about that particular work more often than most ...

foV, I'm not wasting time with you, moving forward. You are insincere, disrespectful and just can't come to grips we all have opinions. I have grown tired of your personality, filled with character flaws , real talk. My advice to you, observe how you, not others, seem to keep clashing with people o...

Bradly, What did The Master say when his accusers asked him insincere questions? He often said nothing ! His trials are a wonderful illustration of the power of silence. I dare to advise you and all others: Resist the temptation to feed the trolls, particularly this one that keeps reappearing. They ...

I have a question about Proverbs 2, Jim. 5 Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, WHEN? and you will gain knowledge of God. TUB tells us that we must love God in order to know Him. How is fearing the lord the path to gaining knowledge of Him? God is love and how can fear come into...

Thanks Agon for bringing this up. Since childhood I subscribed to the idea that colonization of places like the moon and Mars were not just desirable, but inevitable. After having studied and lived with the Urantia Book, I now get this sense that the idea of colonizing Mars is.... silly. If Mars can...

Hi Angel, As far as I can tell, "tense" and "intense" are semantically equivalent in this context. I'm not a physicist nor an electrical engineer, so I have to defer to others as to whether "tense" is commonly used elsewhere in the English language to describe similar s...

Hi Angel,

Great question, as always!

Yes, it has been my impression that the greenhouse effect is the phenomenon to which they are referring. I would say the phrase "blanketing effect of the atmosphere" is what would be synonymous with "greenhouse effect".

Thanks

I think "adjacent space regions" also includes regions outside the atmosphere-- where debris were slowly starting to dwindle and consequently the space regions itself was becoming more stable.

Angel, When I read the phrase, my impression is that they are trying to make it very clear that when they present dates, they are explicitly defining 1 earth year as 365.25 earth days. I think they point this out as the "current usage" since throughout history there were many different met...

Hi Angel, The first phrase "Since the condensation of the earth's hydrosphere" is an adverbial clause of time. The subject of the sentence is "this latter body of water." The verb phrase is "should be visualized as" and the object is essentially the rest of the sentence...

Very fair comment, Stephen. I would add the militancy in the language that I offer merely reflects the battles that rage within my heart as part of the war for the soul. A purely individual, yet universal experience. I would never, ever advocate violence associated with the dissemination of the reve...

Thanks Brad. I understand your concern with Robert's prior admonitions. I am trying to walk the line by being respectful of all the wonderful accomplishments that readers have made in the last 60 years: all the scholarship, outreach, and sincerely genuine effort to keep the seeds of the revelation a...
