Re: I Origins

This movie turned out to be mostly about reincarnation, and though I don't personally believe in reincarnation, the movie presented the concept in a very interesting way.

Transhumanism: The Downfall of Humanity?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfRzUI8hkwo Though I do not share the Biblical literalism of the filmmaker, the philosophical questions raised by transhumanism are alarming.

Re: New book on William S. Sadler and the Urantia Book

I really appreciate that the book included the account of Sadler's deathbed. In his dying moments, if he stood by the reality of the mansion worlds that was revealed to him, then he was either a liar, mentally insane, or telling the truth of what he believed based on his personal experience. It's th...

Re: New book on William S. Sadler and the Urantia Book

I've honestly found it hard to believe that the papers materialized out of nothing. I look forward to reading this book as a possible historical explanation of how they originated. If Sadler served as a scribe for the celestials, taking down what they had revealed to him, it would be no harder to be...

Re: The book that started my search

I went through a phase relatively recently when I watched videos of psychic mediums giving cold readings and read accounts of near death experiences in order to somehow find assurance of the afterlife. Now I see that psychic mediums have the strong possibility of being deceivers, whether that decept...

Re: The Urantia Book and the Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon promises that if you sincerely pray about the Book of Mormon's truth, God will reveal to your heart that it's true. Does the Urantia Book have a similar promise, that its truth will be revealed to your heart?

Re: Conversations with God?

Re: Meher Baba

I think that, on the topic on Meher Baba, we may need to respectfully agree to disagree. I am not a devotee of his work, so I can't comment too much on it. I can say that when you look at pictures of him or watch old films, he has such a welcoming, peaceful and loving demeanor: http://www.meherbaba....

I am sorry that you are giving up, but it doesn't appear that you tried to show specifically what in Meher Baba's life and teachings reflected a lack of emphasis on God's love and direct spiritual experience.
