Before making assumed factual statements about the reception of the revelation and how it's like other channeled material it would be wise to spend some time at the Urantia Book Historical Society website -- ubhistory.org -- to become familiar with what the facts are. There is an abundance of specul...

Where do we learn from TUB that Jesus promoted or recommended... "...conscious acceptance of spirit guidance" that "helps us integrate our minds with universe reality levels of truth, beauty and goodness, which contributes to our physical health in a positive way."? Again, this i...

Hello redtread, It's perfectly okay to hang onto a belief you hold more dear than what you've learned from TUB. As I said, it's a matter of choice and we're not all alike. Consider this however... NDEs are only provided by people who haven't really died; they've come close but they're still living i...

We're material beings living in a material creation with tenuous connection to the real spirit world that upholds it all. How reliable are human perceptions? They're certainly good enough to get us through this life in one piece but does that hold true to the esoteric concepts we entertain too? Does...

Perhaps the simplest and easiest explanation is that when the life carriers initiate life, as they did here one billion years ago, the DNA of the single celled organisms contained the potential of all life from simple plantlife to dinosaurs and humans; these potential life forms are keyed to environ...

SEla_Kelly, you're again portraying yourself too much like a prophet here and you will be prohibited from posting if you continue. Self-proclaimed prophets, channelers or mystics are not welcome or entertained. You're entitled to your opinions, but unless they're related to the teachings of the UB t...

"nothing to fear from investigation" is a world away from "skepticism." To follow truth requires critical thinking, not skepticism, where there's nothing positive or beneficial to be gained.

nodAmanaV -- "What about cannabis? Do you think he might of had a toot with his fellow caravan mates in the desert? The Papers tell us his human experience was replete." This is an ignorant, juvenile question, probably asked with a smirk. Posts are expected to indicate some intelligence --...

I don't see any relationship between the psychic circles and psychic mind activity other than both contain the word psychic.

Hello Caligastia, This isn't about arguing with me or discussing my training or knowledge. It's about posting guidelines on this discussion board. If you wish to hang onto the old and worn out assumptions that your human mind can tap into the spirit world and that spirits talk to you that's fine -- ...

SEla_Kelly, those are your opinions. Although you've used some Urantia Book terminology, they are simply New Age wishful thinking opinions and are not supported by the teachings of The Urantia Book. Channeling is a psychic activity -- an activity of the lower mind. Although the messages dredged up o...

If, in your belief and faith, you're willing to accept as factual any critique from someone you don't know, don't respect, whose mental capacity and whose reason for writing you don't understand then you will always live in confusion and doubt. It's your own inner conviction that's meaningful to you...

Hello Starscollide, Thank you for your post. It brings up several interesting attitudes that most of us face at various times in our lives, in particular, the values of logic, fact, truth, and faith which surely don't all conspire to help us reach the same conclusions... else we'd all believe the sa...
