Application of Scientific Thinking to Cosmology in The Urantia Book

Ken Glasziou was a scientist who took pains to make his reasoning comprehensible to the general reader. As one of those general readers, I was often interested in what he had to say. Recently my attention was drawn to something he wrote in an article he wrote in 2002 titled “Mathematics and Science Catch up … read more of Application of Scientific Thinking to Cosmology in The Urantia Book.

Recent Developments in the Astrophysics Sector

Interesting development: for 40 years cosmologists have been arguing about the best way to simulate (1) the clustering of galaxies and (2) the flat rotation curves of spiral galaxies. Invisible (dark) matter works well for explaining the clustering, but modified Newtonian gravity works better for spiral galaxies. Around 2015, researchers began to take seriously the … read more of Recent Developments in the Astrophysics Sector.

The Challenges of Diversity

Diversity is one of the dominant aspects of the universe as described in The Urantia Book. It pervades all of the grand universe, including spiritual and ascending beings and the physical environments.  Diversity presents challenges to us all as we go about our daily lives, but because of its never-ending and constantly expanding presence, it is very important to learn how to deal with it here on Urantia in preparation for our future universe career.

Language Matters

A Reflection on ‘Insensitive’ Words in The Urantia Book (Presented at the October 2020 online ANZURA conference) The focus of this article is on language – and specifically on what I am calling ‘insensitive’ language. This labelling is, by definition, subjective and words that might offend one person do not have the same effect on … read more of Language Matters.

Ancient Orvonton, and a Young Cosmic Web

  Video 4D The Urantia Book presents a cosmology that stirs the soul: a central and perfect universe, fringed by spacetime shallows in which finaliters are born; finaliters, destined to launch from this cosmic continental shelf into oceanic depths, seeding the light and life of personality throughout nested levels of outer space. Soul stirring indeed! … read more of Ancient Orvonton, and a Young Cosmic Web.

Think Alike – Necessary or Unnecessary?

One of the few topics that we are told led to Jesus being stirred within his spirit was the inference that we should all see alike. When asked by James Zebedee Master, how shall we learn to see alike and thereby enjoy more harmony among ourselves? (141:5.1) Jesus replied:  “James, James, when did I teach you … read more of Think Alike – Necessary or Unnecessary?.
