You do realize there is an entire section of the forum called "The Skeptic's Corner" and this thread happens to be posted there, right?

FanofVan, congratulations on having some diversity in your reading! Nevertheless, the fundamentalism of a vocal handful of participants in the forum is painfully obvious. I am not the first person to comment on it. "Agenda" is such a loaded word. You delight in ascribing it to me. I have a...

I wonder if FanofVan thinks nothing is credible unless it is spelled out explicitly in the Urantia Book.

Thank you Todd. I believe you have shown that, although there may not have been direct "channelling" involved with the actual physical production of the papers, it was certainly involved in the circumstances surrounding the sleeping subject. Perhaps we are splitting hairs. I think we can a...

The Urantia Book is very clear that this is a vast populated universe. There is mortal life on millions of worlds. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if advanced civilizations had developed the technology to travel the vast distances of space and had observed, visited, or even interacted with Eart...

I self-identify as being in group 2, interested but not a full believer. Sorry if I disparaged all 1000+ posters. That was a broad brush. But I have my own experiences here on this forum and I have read other posts and seen the same user names pop up over and over with the same behavior. Let's just ...

I think your categories of people reading the Urantia Book is off a little. Most people in the Unites States have never heard of it or if they have, have little interest in it. Those that are here are on this forum discussing it are more likely to fall in to the following categories: 1) Those who ac...

Yes, that is true. And it is one of the more radical propositions in the books. So far it hasn't been a major part, though. The core of these books is absolutely based on Urantia teachings. It is in agreement 100% with the the teachings about: The Central and Superuniverses The Local Universe The Hi...

Okay. Let's assume the Urantia Book is a unique work completely different from all other communications. Easy enough. A hypothetical for you: The UB was published in 1955. It is now 60 years later. The circumstances in the universe have changed and the celestials want to provide us updated informati...

I can appreciate the fact that you are coming from a good place. You think Wylie's work is a false teaching and want to protect people from it.

1) But if you haven't read his stuff, you don't know what you are protecting us from.
2) We are all adults. We can make up our own minds.

Wylie's work agrees with that 100%.

If I knew everything about the Urantia Book, I wouldn't need to be on a forum would I.

Or is this where the know-it-alls come to hassle anyone that doesn't believe the exact same thing as they do? :)

Okay, I see. You are scared it's a work of evil. Your fear is misplaced. It's not evil. No need to be so black and white about things. One of the more fascinating ideas that the books put forth is the idea that the Lucifer Rebellion was deliberately facilitated by higher levels of the MA as a way to...

Brother please. He probably spent more in making those than he'll ever recover. It is a pretty small audience for that kind of work. And all you're doing is making yourself look small-minded. I can only hope visitors to this thread don't assume you represent the entire Urantia community. Listen, Wyl...

Coop, you have made yourself very clear.

Somehow I am not making myself clear. Let me try again. I don't believe these works are contrary to Urantia teachings. They are in support of them.

Now if you don't have anything useful to add to this thread, please stop commenting. Thank you.
