I may be a bit premature in writing this, having only read 1/4 to 1/3 of TUB so far. I started reading it with "suspending my disbelief" until I would have read it through. I decided just to read what it says and only after having understood it, I would check whether I consider it the Tru...

if none should perish it will be interesting to find out the real story as to why so many mortals do not choose eternal life. i don't think tub is giving all the information these authors know about rebellion choices, whether it's a system sovereign or a lowly mortal. Why not everyone chooses morta...

Radioactive decay is governed by the strong nuclear force. The speed of light and gravitational attraction are physical constants. All of these constants, and others, are the essence of the laws of nature. If they are subject to change, then the following assertion is false: 102:7.2 The everywhere-...

I wonder if the recent finding of neutrino having exceeded the speed of light is true but that the speed of light has increased too so that both may still have the same speed. S...

To take a single, but dramatic, example, the Catholic Church claims to be the infallible vehicle of the revelation of Jesus to this world. [clip] There is compatibility between the two on some issues of spirituality, yes, but there is no compatibility between them on what they fundamentally are . J...

Yoder777 Said Please Validate your statements that '' There are also similar beliefs '' With Actual New Age Source material and Quotes AND Quotes From The UB Papers That You THINK Are The Same ! Actually, neither TUB nor New Age teachings should be taken at the quote level. Both of them require mor...

But, as I see it, one of the themes that runs through New Age thought is the notion that "you create your own reality." This theme is notably absent from the UB, which is the main reason why I think it's a mistake to classify the UB in the New Age category. Actually, this very theme is th...

0:3.17 The Infinite is used to denote the fullness -- the finality -- implied by the primacy of the First Source and Center. The theoretical I AM is a creature-philosophic extension of the "infinity of will," but the Infinite is an actual value-level representing the eternity-intension of...

I found that several important questions did not have the "Urantia answer", e.g. what will happen to people with other faiths. Also, in many places I had to pick "the least bad" alternative . Choosing the answer that is closest to your opinion, even if neither is exactly right, ...

I found that several important questions did not have the "Urantia answer", e.g. what will happen to people with other faiths. Also, in many places I had to pick "the least bad" alternative.

But then again, I am not a Christian, so the quiz does not actually apply to me.

Thanks! That's quite impressive!

Do you know of a similar treatment of the locations, including capitals?

Does anyone know of a tabular summary or a website that describes the complete celestial organization as depicted in TUB? Starting from God and ending in us, with all the levels in between. I mean both the physical locations as well as the organization of the beings that work in them. I have been re...

You can think of it that way if you want, but any Catholic theologian will tell you that the "stain of original sin" is not just a causal ripple effect of bad choices. I'd agree with you on the latter point, but I'm well aware that from the Catholic standpoint, "dropping this part of...

That is, to understand the true scope of the message contained in the TUB, we must be detached from the religious concept of religion. I think that's the main reason why religions have given so little to me - I have always been detached from that concept! In my case the Thought Adjuster has led me ...
