Another question to add. As you've described Diego, the reason God sent Jesus into the world was to be an atonement for humanity's sins. Ergo, God sent himself as a Man, the only possibly perfect being that could exist to give himself for us. But after Jesus' death and resurrection he appeared and t...

Hi Diego, A lot of people believe the same as you do, and the stance of the Urantia Book is there's enough of Jesus in Christianity to immortalize it. You won't ever be alone with the beliefs you've expressed if you want them. Most of the world doesn't believe Christian theology though. As a counter...

I'd recommend start by just trying out yourself what you propose, there isn't actually much if any money needed for most of your ideas. Probably the most important thing is doing it, go out there and do it. What is there to lose? Maybe you've already done some of these things, but for instance pick ...

So, question: I am a strong believer in the Atonement. I believe that Jesus died for our sins on the Cross. Now the question is, if the the UB is to be believed, the Atonement is not an acceptable concept. Now I am not here to get into a theological battle on the subject. But, what WAS the purpose ...

The way I understand it, around 1927, Einstein was struggling with creating a "cosmological constant" to account for his notion of a gravitationally collapsing cosmos. He was on the right track to discovering zero-point energy and the dynamic influence of ultimatonic radiation on matter. ...

Since the papers and Einstein's work happened at approximately the same time in history, early 20th century, it is possible that the papers were meant to help Einstein with his later work. If he had not been influenced toward Big Bang the Urantia Papers could have given him the tools to understand ...

Experiments have proven that the speed of light is the fastest anything can travel, because, objects which move toward a light source (relative to the light coming at them,) whether they move towards the light slowly, or fast, always clock in at the same number, 186,284mps. Obviously UB authors kno...

The grand universe is so vast that we are still only seeing sectors of Orvonton when we look at the Hubble image. The Hubble image really is a mind bender. The patch of sky that was picked to observe was intentionally picked since astronomers wanted to see only very far distant objects. This is why...

What is the Hubble pointing at here? Other galaxies within Nebadon? Galaxies outside of Nebadon? Another part of our own superuniverse? Another superuniverse altogether? What are we seeing in this phenomenal composite of images? Thanks! These would all be outside the local universe of Nebadon, whic...

I'm glad we are seeing eye to eye on that :) Let's put the AG conversation behind us, I want to ask you something else. You mentioned that y=e^x has no derivative. However I thought the derivative was (d)/(dx)(e^x) = e^x. What is wrong with this solution? You have asked a most important question. Y...

Thanks, I'll look forward to the next post. Just a quick reference to offer about one thing since I also might not have a chance to post again until next week some time. The papers don't explicitly say that the bering land bridge hasn't been passable for the last 85,000 years...it just says that it ...

http://www.ubthenews.com/ http://www.ubthenews.com/topics/early_migration_americas.htm Thanks coop. That's a great summary. I think sometimes though ubthenews isn't as careful with the details as they should be, overlooking the fullness of what the UB says. Like for instance with this one, how it o...

Thanks for the clarifications of your point of view, fanofVan. If a person sees ways that scientific knowledge about historical events isn't going to line up with the UB's statements -- they come to conclusively decide the work by the scientists is in fact much more on the right track and far closer...

So if we found any evidence of the North American migration occurring during that time period, it would be an enormous threat to that entire paradigm. There have been significant resources invested and careers staked on this hypothesis. Science is not immune from politics and pride and preconceived...

tas, if you have a source from the 30's postulating an 85kya migration i'd like to see it...it most certainly wasnt the widely accepted theory of that time period. The 30's were a time when the prevailing thought was shifting from 2kya to a clovis era theory (11kya)...and currently "clovis fir...
