53:9.4 Satan could come to Urantia because you had no Son of standing in residence — neither Planetary Prince nor Material Son. Machiventa Melchizedek has since been proclaimed vicegerent Planetary Prince of Urantia, and the opening of the case of Gabriel vs. Lucifer has signalized the inauguration ...

I never looked at this pargraph as gays but now that you mention it, I think they could be included in this group. I do not believe that "gay sexual partnership" is intended as "ideal sex partnership" but that is one of those subjects that is, kind of like the eugenics topic. It...

Larry, coop, fanofVan and Boom, you all post such cool things! :smile: You may have misunderstood me slightly, Larry, when you mention that it's not a knowledge book. For me, it's a perspective book. We discovered through scientific progress that the earth is not the centre of the universe but that ...

Wow, thanks Coop for all those refs - that is awesome. I am finding it hard to figure out what it means though, to be born of the spirit. The Urantia Book says that "Those who have received and recognized the indwelling of God have been born of the Spirit." and also "When you enter th...

Thanks for those references, kiwi. I wonder if the Bible's ministry of similitude is one function of TA.

Hi kahanyah, can you expand on that? What do you mean by the Bible's ministry of similitude?

Hello friend. It was you who introduced me to the Urantia Book a few years ago. I'll always remember you because of that. Do you know much about the background to this webpage, and why the date of 12 November was chosen? UB 122:8.7 "On May 29, 7 B.C., there occurred an extraordinary conjunction...

Let's get physical; let's get REAL. Has anyone tried to account for 'negative' mass or 'negative' energy? :roll: Has anyone seen 'imaginary' mass or 'imaginary' energy? Is not math (numbers) supposed to represent physical reality? We must keep it real. :wink: I began reading your post with flashes ...

Being born of the spirit is a huge deal in the church and its apparently a huge deal in the urantia book as well. Hi boom, this idea is coming up a lot in your posts, but I've never really seen it as a strong theme of the Urantia Book. I always thought of it as one of the unclear ideas of Christian...

The notion of feeling special, or unique compared to other people is something you can weed out of your system with the urantia book. I know many people would think a book like this would bring about strange behaviour but when you realize its a revelation for all human beings, even if they do not r...

I don't know if thoughts are real or not.....but I think there is some cosmic relationship numbers have with reality. Not sure about thoughts. On one hand they could be thought of as neural pathways or imprints on the brain or something. But on the other hand, as products of mind they are immateria...

Hi all, wondering if any of you have felt that they need to hide the Urantia Book from your kids. I have sensitive and inquisitive young children, who are starting to ask question about the book they see me reading. On the one hand I would love to share some of the principles with them, to the level...

An issue came up in another thread recently about whether negative numbers (and imaginary numbers, etc.) are real, in the material sense. Just wanted to raise the question of whether even positive numbers are materially real. I don't think they are, but I'm open to others' views. In what sense is th...

Thanks very much, Makalu, MaryJo and Boomshuka, for your responses. That's a cool quote about the reality response. It's amazing to think of ourselves as helpless victims without it. But it's so true! Trying to form a philosophy of life based on nothing probably wouldn't get us very far. Around the ...
