So...my confusion about the technical aspects of this Paper (and others) was not meant to extend to any others, or to trivialize important details and facts about universe reality. I, personally, am too confused by the Paper being studied here that I don't know if I am swallowing camels or straining...

I think these "gnats" are bigger than 747s!! :wink: Evidently, Paradise and material creation within time and space are finite and not infinite. But there is an infinite (limitless) space for all future creation in the expanding universe of universes. 12:1.14 (129.12) The Outer Space Level...

Don't get me wrong. I do see the beauty and the goodness of the world as well. There lies the problem though, in my mind that's all there should be. Evil and suffering should not exist, not even in the physical realm such as Urantia. It's pretty hard not to be consumed by anger when you hear about ...

Having taken a few days off to absorb the information here and do some self reflection, i did come to a conclusion that i was overly harsh here. I saw and see the world through my own misery and despair, and i admit being wrong here. Thanks for Van for being patient with me. I do not know if i ever...

One of the greatest of all the many assurances found in the Papers is the reality that ALL suffering by ALL beings is temporal. Another is that those souls who suffer the most and overcome their suffering by hope and faith become the greatest of all mercy ministers with the most enlightened experien...

Let me recommend this topic on " What is Assurance?": https://forum.truthbook.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5434 Jesus said, "...I have absolute confidence in my heavenly Father’s overcare; I am consecrated to doing the will of my Father in heaven. I do not believe that real harm can b...

Evidently, Paradise is the source of and also subject to 'laws' of physics...and is also the 'nucleus' of all creation. All forms of gravity are centered around this nucleus as is all motion and energy. All originate in Paradise and return to this First Source and Center in a continuous operational ...

" I have neither the knowledge or depth to debate this question..." Me either!! And I am not debating...just hoping to understand. Actually, the UB presents much that I consider paradox, and Jesus used paradox frequently as a teaching tool. The authors offer us much speculation and wonderm...

The Urantia Papers teach us that the accelerating rate of technological progress puts increasing pressure on society to make adjustments faster and faster. Likewise does technology driven social transitions and accelerated progress put emotional and psychological pressure on communities, families, a...

Those who blame our fallen prince or the Satania rebellion for Urantia's evolutionary struggles certainly misunderstand the Papers. The consequences of freewill are real. Human suffering is a result and function of human self importance and false liberty by the mortals on every evolutionary sphere. ...

Perhaps we are being told that Paradise acts as the ultimatons nucleus, but that Paradise is not to be found at the center of each ultimaton?? A behavioral and functional center of gravity but not linear gravity where material atoms are orbital gravitational systems whereby the internal orbital rela...

Greetings Nigel...and thank you!! Our reality perspective and philosophy of living shapes our motives and intentions and priorities and choices in this tadpoles life. As you know, the UB is a gift to enlarge and elevate and enlighten our personal preconceptions and misperceptions and prejudices... o...

41:9.2 (465.2) Atoms and electrons are subject to gravity. The ultimatons are not subject to local gravity, the interplay of material attraction, but they are fully obedient to absolute or Paradise gravity, to the trend, the swing, of the universal and eternal circle of the universe of universes. Ul...

I neither insulted or accused. I apologize if that's how you felt. I made questions, which remains unaswered. This is going off-topic pretty badly, perhaps conversations like this about the current state of the world is better reserved for another topic. Actually, we are not discussing the "cu...
