This book is fairly controversial in the christian arena precisely for the reason that it doesn't get hung up on traditional christian philosophy. I thought it was a great read though I did disagree philosophically with a few of the concepts brought forth. Being a father of two small children, it wa...

Human creature life most certainly begins at conception, but I think I am in agreement with most here when I say that according to the UB, personality bestowal (and therefore becoming a person with survival potential in the eyes of God and the universes) appears to occur at least at birth. It could ...

Well the purpose of this site would be mostly social in nature, not just another forum discussion type site, though it does have that functionality built in and available. There really wouldn't be need for a lot of rules. I'm not sure how much you've poked around in something like MySpace, but essen...

Hi Tony, Thanks for bringing this to our attention! I have some questions. What is the difference between this "network" and an ordinary website? Well technically speaking it is an ordinary website. It is just built with premade software via a web interface so there is no real technical k...

I just wanted to float this idea out there and see what kind of response you would have. There is a new social networking software available for people to create their own networks. Think of something like MySpace or Facebook and you're close to the mark. With this software, you can create your own ...

The Uversa Press index is great and I use it quite frequently for topical searches. If you're looking for more of a word search function, then the UB in DOS Folio Views written by Kristen Maaherra (Michaels) is the way to go. You can download it from my website (http://www.divinitywithinus.org) unde...

Off Topic Alert! - Hey, I just noticed i'm over 100 posts now and it only took me 2 years! I'm such a Chatty Cathy. But then again I've always gone by the motto that it's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. :wink:

That was a good explanation, Larry. I hesitate to confound things any further, but what I really found confusing at first was not that there was an element of God that was evolving with us, but that at the same time he already exists in Havona! 106:4.3 What changes will be inaugurated by the full em...

This experiment is based on the assumption that the universe started with the Big Bang. This theory is not supported by the UB. Though this theory is not specifically supported by the UB, to my knowledge it is not specifically denied either. The theory may not be 100% correct, but it may have its v...

I have to agree with JB and Gerdean here. Notwithstanding that the call did indeed evoke emotion and compassion, it did seem a bit contrived to me. I certainly could be wrong, but that's the impression I got. Also, I certainly don't condemn either the boy or the station for expressing their beliefs ...

I finished reading The God Theory a week or 2 ago and I think Dr. Haisch has a brilliant insight into God and spiritual reality. As I said before, I wrote to him regarding the UB but he has not yet responded and I expect that he likely will not. It's unfortunate if he does not check into the UB beca...

I would be honored if you felt it worthy enough to copy and share with someone. :) Share it with whomever you feel may be helped or inspired by it or even may just enjoy it aesthetically. Poetry for me is mostly an exercise in self expression and emotional release, but I hope that it can move others...

I just read a comment Angel made in the thread at http://forums.truthbook.com/viewtopic.php?t=2445&start=60 As for my children asking when God will return, I tell them there is a spiritual ladder and they're supposed to climb to where he is, not the other way around. I was so moved by this state...

Wow! This blurb you posted looks like it could be a promo for the UB! Does anyone know if this guy is a UB reader? I just ordered a copy of this book and I think I'll also try to find out how to contact the author to introduce him to the UB if he hasn't already heard of it. UPDATE: I found the autho...
