Thought provoking??


Yes, I think so...

Geez...lighten up already bro. If you don't like the topic, you don't have to participate. It's doing no harm to anyone.

OK - I think I have done all I can do. These links will take you to my scanned images. I think that from there, you can enlarge the images for easier reading, as the print is kinda small. BTW, this is an article from The Fellowship Herald (Summer 2022), published by the Urantia Fellowship. https://u...

I don't think JonG's post was about Halbert, and I don't think we should make this about him here. The topic is the eclipse.

I think the buzz about this amazing event is simply as a result of the dates and their significance to UBers. It's nothing more or less. Fun to think about, reflect on, etc... I remember when the 2017 eclipse hppened on Jesus' birthday, we made a special trip to a nice place where we could watch it ...

I look forward to the human source of this "Amazing Event" notice.


There is no human source of this amazing event. It is an eclipse of the sun.

Of course, we all know the significance of August 21, but April 8 is also significant, as it is the date that Jesus lay in the tomb - the book calls it the "time of the tomb."

There's a nice article about this in the latest issue (Summer 2022) Fellowship Herald, the Urantia Fellowship's periodical. Unfortunately, I can't find it online right now, probably because it is too new. But maybe someone out there can figure out a way tp upload it here. The article is called: &quo...

Is our suffering not such a burden once we do not suffer by its causes or must endure its grip of pain?? When I think about pain and suffering, I remember this line (which is not original with me) "Pain is inevitable, but misery is optional." To me, this means that while we all will be vi...

Fanofvan, I wil leave you with this, from one of your own posts about the frog/tadpole: Indeed this is but a personal interpretation! So it's ok for you to have a personal interpretation that contradicts the text ( or "interprets" the text for yourself), but not for anyone else? We all hav...

How is it I wonder that some find only doom and gloom and preach disappointment and doubts??? Brady, it is hard not to be subject to doom and gloom as we watch once again your efforts to undermine a sincere student of the revelation here. What you see is not what I or others see. Your nitpicking is...

Yes. Certainly Eve would not have been expected to produce 500,000 kids. But since there was no taboo or health concerns for the siblings to intermarry, there would have been increasing number of the pure-line offspring with each generation. I guess there's really no way to pin it down. I'd say your...

Thanks, Rick. Interesting as always. I am wondering about how much time it might have taken for Adam and Eve and their family to produce those 500,000 pure-line offspring if things had gone as planned. At the time of the default there were 4 generations and over 1600 descendents. And that was after ...

Wow - that's a pretty gripping read for my Sunday morning.

Hard to imagine how it all came down, but you have done a great job of making it real.

Thanks, Rick!

Purdue Pharma is only the tip of the iceberg but your are free to ignore Jesus admonitions and do nothing about such exploitations. You may have a different calling. That's between you and God. 117:5:5 (1286.3) “The act is ours, the consequences God’s.” Mrlucky, I have deleted your last post. You a...
