Below UB passages seem to me indicate that the evolution of electron is intelligently guided or artificially made as well as naturally occurring. What is your understanding of the below passages? 42:4.3 (473.1) The power centers and their associates are much concerned in the work of transmuting the ...

A gyroscope will resist the motion of the Earth's rotation.

Can you explain further how this is so? I think in order for this to be true, a gyroscope should hover above the ground and stays where it is and we should see it as moving westward at the speed of earth’s rotation.

Yaakov wrote: I don't think Torah can be argued with. I can accept much of the premises of the UB, like continuous learning in the Mansion Worlds, and things of that nature. But the reinterpretation of Hebrew history doesn't wash. THE REVELATORS WEREN'T THERE! Even they admit that they are not perfe...

Good to see you here again, brother Yaakov. What I can say is you are on your own unique journey. Just be patient and continue reading the book. Everyone of us who have read the book has gotten something valuable from the book that made us a better person and we are all still learning from it perhap...

Thank you for this new online version of the book. I have this as an app on my Iphone and Ipad. What I like about this online version or site is it is all the book, no more no less. This is the kind of online version that I have been looking for. This is the one that I can share without creating sus...

I noticed that the passage numbering of the Urantia Book on this site (http://urantiapapers.freeurantia.org/) is different from other websites. Example: On a recent post, this quote was given: 48:6.26 Even on Urantia, these seraphim teach the everlasting truth: If your own mind does not serve you we...

48:6.26 You will learn that you increase your burdens and decrease the likelihood of success by taking yourself too seriously. Nothing can take precedence over the work of your status sphere—this world or the next. Very important is the work of preparation for the next higher sphere, but nothing equ...

Also, Milky Way galaxy is estimated to have 100 billion stars so meaning, it could also harbor 100 billion inhabited planets (if each solar system harbors one inhabited planets). A local universe when finished would only have 10 million inhabited planets. So Milky way could contain 10,000 local univ...

But this shows that they only needed to wait one generation! Or have I interpreted it wrong? Were the Life Carrier plans abandoned by then, because of the r...

It is 90-95% about Christ's public life on Earth, which makes it little Earth centric ...

Patrick wrote: …..Where God dwells can sin be present? Could God place himself inside a sinful vessel? These ideas don't make sense to me. Sin and God do not mix. Where God is, sin is not, where sin is, God is not. Pretty simple really…. The UB says that every normal minded person is indwelt by a Th...
