"So, how could we resolve the theory of many worlds and their many gods? We can be certain that earthly religions will not accommodate the alien gods."


:idea: A perspective not included in this article is that earthly religions may soon recognize and accommodate a "One Source and Center" ... even for all the inhabited worlds of space. Besides, the angels (et. al.) of all worlds are continually leading those mortals to this discovery.

:cheers: A good, UB-associated, brief intro to the topic of space aliens, but The Divine Plan section might have to be revised if earth visitations are found to include human aliens and/or alien "robots" (the UFO-related evidence is still accumulating). Also, the UB hints that troublesome aliens (as depicted in movies, books, etc.) may not be among the visitors ... especially since the UB elaborates on celestial administration's authority and ability to isolate worlds (albeit, the UB's focus is on spiritual isolation). ;)

A good article however, before 1984 when George saw the Midwayers they were armed with a lance of a sort that could fire with some power. George tells me that the purpose of these lances were to protect the earth and her children from anything coming here that meant us harm. After 1984 they no longer carried these lances... at least Bzutu and the ones George communicated with were no longer armed. Maybe their job description changed. :)

Trends suggest that the world should be concerned about self-inflicted wounds
rather than alien threats, real or "staged" (with technology realism). :roll:

:lol: Today's religious humor (with subtle UB perspective):

Asectual - the lack of attraction to any sect, or low or absent interest in or desire for sectual activity. :roll:

:study: Re: http://www.psypost.org/2017/04/study-fi ... tion-48675

"there is reason to believe that certain non-religious magical beliefs such as belief in supernatural energy, agents, and forces are actually increasing as is general interest in the paranormal. So one possibility is that it is not that people leaving traditional religion are becoming more secular but instead that are switching to other types of religious-like beliefs and interests to pursue spiritual needs."

"This research on meaning and ETI beliefs indicates that people, especially non-religious people, are interested in ETI, in part, because they are searching for meaning in life." ;)

:cheers: A good discussion about the need for meaning in life ... but this "need for meaning" may be none other than spirit-level guidance/motivation driving what we incorrectly perceive as our human "need".

Today's meditation: As above, So below? :scratch:
(a perspective on belief and faith)

;) Counsel from above:
If you "know what you know", quit diluting yourself,
especially in your interaction with others.

"The Western world is, in theory, becoming increasingly secular — but the religious mind remains active."

:idea: Perhaps an indwelling spirt of God (quietly resident without human request), countless presence (even on our planet) of advanced celestial beings, and all-pervading (even universe-level) spiritual forces are the essence of why "the religious mind remains active." ;)

Obviously, such minds remaining active are not isolated to the Western world. 8)

(from a private email exchange in support of UB dissemination)

Regarding the Urantia Book and religion, Stephen H. Zendt wrote:

:flower: Dear friends,

We must be careful of conflating the Urantia Revelation with a mortal religion.

We are ambassadors of a new way of conception and participation in our Local Universe.

It is not any religion, as our planet Urantia might conceive one of our major Religions to be.

We are absorbing and internalizing the RELIGION OF JESUS OF NAZARETH, as he lived it and taught it.

This is cosmic in scope. It is an "umbrella" spread over all religions of our world, a conceptual framework for faith in Universe Reality, the sovereignty of The Supreme Being.

It's not a "belief-system", nor is it some "post-Christian" set of religious fundamentals.

It is purely a way-of-living, in the presence of a God of Universes, a creator-father who mercifully and lovingly fosters PERSONALITY, throughout seven vast Superuniverses.

Yet this Trinity Being, our Universal Father inhabits each one of us as a Mystery Monitor, a kiss and a hug from the highest possible realm and resource. Our birthright in the universe of universes is our ability to faithfully seize the reality of God within.

Alongside this indwelling presence is the Holy Spirit, the Local Universe presence of our Mother Spirit, and her Seven Adjutants.

When the urge to worship our Father wells up within us, we are spreading our love and appreciation to the far corners of Nebadon.

:sunflower: More is to be revealed. Now we are upheld by our cosmic and celestial friends.
