Hi boom, something's weird in this thread - I guess we are just not getting each other. I've been saying that the properties in the Periodic Table repeat in a cycle of 8, not 9, and not 7. This is fairly obvious from the Periodic Table. Do I really need to provide a quote? I don't want to patronise ...

Hi Mark, good question. For me, I put swearing in the same boat as how much alcohol is ok to drink, how much money to give to charity, whether to smack my kids, and whether to eat eggs that aren't free range :-) I should take responsibility for myself on all these issues, but it's not for me to judg...

Mendeleev created the first periodic table based on atomic weight. The modern periodic table is ordered by atomic number. Oxygen and Hydrogen match when it comes to Atomic Number. But that is not what the revelators are talking about. Dude, the sequence of elements is the same, whether they are ord...

Hmmm are you sure? My research on Periodic Law seems to match up with the u.b, in that the properties will repeat every 7 elements, (8th will resemble the 1st).

How so? How is Oxygen like Hydrogen?

Hi boom, my original point was just that: - The Urantia Book says that the eighth resembles the first, and the ninth resembles the second - The Period Table of Elements shows that the ninth resembles the first, and the tenth resembles the second. (I've tried not to use the word cycle - it isn't need...

Hi Boom. Unfortunately I'm not able to follow you at all. But something has just jumped out at me, which I think resolves the situation. It says "chemically active" element! If we don't count the chemically inactive elements in the Periodic Table (like Helium and Neon) then the cycle of 8 ...

I think the authors were psychic and finished this paragraph knowing what you were going to say next haha. Look at the paragraph again and take a look at the highlighted part. Hi boom, not sure I see your point. The Urantia Book is saying there is a cycle of 7. But the Table of Elements has a cycle...

42:9.3 This sevenfold persistence of creative constitution is exhibited in the chemical domains as a recurrence of similar physical and chemical properties in segregated periods of seven when the basic elements are arranged in the order of their atomic weights. When the Urantia chemical elements ar...

84:6.6 Men and women need each other in their morontial and spiritual as well as in their mortal careers. The differences in viewpoint between male and female persist even beyond the first life and throughout the local and superuniverse ascensions. And even in Havona, the pilgrims who were once men...

Got this movie for Christmas and watched it a couple of nights ago. Really enjoyed it. I thought it was a good mix of Urantia Book text and travel doco style commentary. Gave a good impression of how Israel is set out and a bit of what the culture there is like. Introduced the Urantia Book but didn'...

There is also this reference, indicating that morontia bodies are susceptible to injury: 50:3.3 The Life Carriers, the architects of form, provide such volunteers with new physical bodies, which they occupy for the periods of their planetary sojourn. These personality forms, while exempt from the or...

Hi J. Barry and boom, I really like your thoughts. As well as being hampered by attachments to earthly concerns, I guess another potential distraction is the philosophical/intellectual side of the Urantia Book. I find it easy to get carried away with these and forget about the dynamic and powerful s...

Just saw this too: 51:1.5 An original or directly created Adam and Eve are immortal by inherent endowment just as are all other orders of local universe sonship I'm thinking that this is a grammatical error, relative to modern/common usage, but that the error is because of the ambiguity around wheth...

What is spiritual power? Power to do what? Power for what? The apostles were filled with power at Pentecost - when did this fade, and why? Haven't we still got the Spirit of Truth and the Holy Spirit and Thought Adjusters, just the same? Should we be looking to be filled with power in the way that t...

Hi all, Here are all the places in the Urantia Book where the phrase "spiritual power" occurs: 6 - The Eternal Son motivates the spirit level of cosmic reality; the spiritual power of the Son is absolute in relation to all universe actualities. 6 - The Eternal Son is truly a merciful minis...
