Actually, I disagree. I think I am on VERY GOOD grounds to dispute the existence of Jesus without disputing the existence of the authors of the texts of the TaNaKh. However, out of respect for Larry's admonition, I think it best to not pursue this line of discussion further. We can do so in a PM if...

The fact that many Jews were hoping for relief from the Roman Imperial State (and did not get it) is not an indicator that we were wrong on the broader level. It is simply an indicator that the Me...

MannyC, My understanding is that Lucifer has been judged and interned. He is now waiting for sentencing. But while waiting for sentencing, he still have a chance to change his mind. My speculation is that Gabriel does not believe there is anymore chance for him to change his mind hence his plea for ...

Brother Yaakov, Yes, I agree that the Jews/Hebrews/Israelites have been chosen since Abraham and Moses because it was all in preparation for the coming of Jesus, the messiah that the Jews failed to recognized hence their chosenness to become the salt of the world was forfeited. Until now they are st...

On the matter of the Jews being chosen people, I agree that they are in the sense that Jesus was born as a Jewish and he considered them as his people. As a child he practiced the religion of his parents but as he grew up and became aware of who he really was, his human heart still there loving his ...

#1) As the Isle of Paradise is so unfathonably HUGE, what do its citizens do for transportation in order to get around? Through mind. Paradise is spaceless. Think of a place and you are there. #2) When the Urantia Book makes mention of "non-breathers" situated nearby our own sphere, could ...

I agree with quil. I too, do not only believe in the authenticity of the UB but I have faith in it. This does not mean that I consider the UB to be inerrant. I believe its historical facts are absolute and will stand the test of time but its scientific truths are not. But I believe they are the high...

I believe the next power source is solar. The good thing about solar is no moving parts. It is becoming more and more efficient in generating power and its cost is dropping fast.

Essentially we are linking the perpetual motion of the Earth to a devise via a gyroscope. The devise then becomes a perpetual motion machine capable of work. Think of the possibilities.

Nice idea but the question is how?
