I have no idea what you mean when you declare how worried you are that the UB readership, or that subset of readers who have come to believe its claims, is becoming a cult of blind religionists. So you don't know many other readers then I take it?? In 40 years of association with multiple groups of...

This was a brilliant read. I had no idea it existed either, so I can’t thank you enough for sharing. It has answered a lot of my questions and really helped to contextualise the whole thing in my head :biggrin:

The authors of the essay never consider for a second the celestial authorship of the UB. It has to be some known or unknown humans, they believe, and set out on an intellectual, but spiritually empty, exercise to deny that possibility. Most of us have been through the challenges to accepting the UB...

My goodness, I'm not so sure I expected these responses. Straight off, I do not have an agenda and I'm certainly not trying to step on anyone's toes. That's at least borderline insulting, especially when I was just trying to start a dialogue (a much lacking dialogue, I might add). Only immature and ...

Hello everyone! I've been a long time reader of the Urantia papers, but recently my attention was brought back to Christopher Smith's 2010 "The Urantia Book as a Test Case for Statistical Authorship Attribution in Genre-Distinctive Texts" essay. It has been a long time since I last read it...

Hey all, I'm sure you're all aware of the new discovery regarding the speed of Neutrinos. If you don't, then I'm sure you can google it and find any website on the net relates to it somehow now XD Anyway, i've been scanning paper 42, hoping that I'd find something about them. Unfortunately however, ...

I agree war is retarted. But I think if people are completely ignorant of all spiritual reality and if they are fundamentally living as a cave man than we can't really look down on them to much, they are just doing what their instincts are telling them to do. In that day and age nobody had the spir...

One trick when using the Truthbook engine engine, and one wants the broadest possible amount of results, is to type in the absolutely smallest unique part of the word. One could - for example - search on revel which would show results for: revel ation revel ational revel ations revel ator revel ato...

Okay, call me blind, but I'm having trouble locating any reference of such an important biblical book in the UB. I recall finding a quote that was along the lines of 'it was a revelation that is largely abridged - more of it exists that is not recorded in the biblical cannon'; but that's all I can f...

Well I haven't written any songs directly about Urantia Book events, but I want to one day. I have a backcatalogue of material which is certainly inspired of the book. My next album will be more UB themed and will be released in a couple of months tops (for example, one song is titled 570, after th...
