YSMAEL: Does the Universal Father ESTEEM Muslims just as they are? You are still predicating your question on your assumption that all Muslims are bad. Does the Universal Father love every intelligent being EQUALLY? Yes. God loves all equally. He is no respecter of persons Are Michael of Nebadon an...

I've also been experimenting on the repelling power of magnets to make perpetual motion device by putting evenly spaced magnets at the rim of a disk and another set surrounding the disk oriented at same polarity but I still have to calibrate their right positions to maximize their repelling power in...

Louis, My idea works like the mechanism in Segway. A gyroscope keeps the Segway balance upright. If you move the center of gravity forward, the Segway moves forward to keep it balance. If you move the center of gravity by tilting the handle forward but not allowing the Segway to move forward, its wh...

Louis, I think you are a genius but it is a state where loneliness abounds when no one understands you. I think I understand your view as a whole but lost in detail. I too have been inspired by the UB to try to make my own little contribution to the creation of a device to bring free energy to the w...

Yes, I most agree with nodAmanav. I also think it is not necessary to disseminate the UB though I share it whenever I have a chance. I discovered it without anybody telling me about it. And it is more satisfying to discover something valuable than somebody giving it to you, no feeling of indebtednes...

Louis, I believe you. But I think if Einstein had known the UB, he would have made revision of his famous equation. He had to base his equation on what he knew at that time and it works locally.

But to me, reading the bible again after I have read the Urantia Book, I could now better see its truths from its errors, whereas before I had to reason out in my mind and justify any apparent errors I saw. The UB cleared so many confusions I had with the bible.

That is how I also understand, that Andromeda is in the first outer space level. When astronomers say that Andromeda is moving towards our galaxy and that sometime in the future they will collide, I am thinking that because the first outer space level is moving clockwise and ours counterclockwise, t...

15:4.7 (170.1) Not all spiral nebulae are engaged in sun making. Some have retained control of many of their segregated stellar offspring, and their spiral appearance is occasioned by the fact that their suns pass out of the nebular arm in close formation but return by diverse routes, thus making i...

If the earth is 4.5 billion years old, that means it has undergone 2 and ¼ cycle of space respirations. According to UB, the entire universe is in its midpoint of its expansion period meaning this expansion period started .5 billion years ago. Modern science assumes a universe started with a big ban...

I agree with al. And there will be as many interpretations of the UB as there are many people who read it. But the more important thing I guess is the unity in spirit that the UB inspires in each, more important than the uniformity in thoughts and beliefs.
