It's been discussed here before, most of the opinion that it's just gibberish foisted on the gullible in an attempt to make a buck. "But it's
free!" says hold. "Hold up" says I, "they can still make a buck with commentaries and DVDs!!!"
I have it and TRIED to read it a couple of times. Pretty tough going. The Bible is easier. As I understand it, Urantia is "channeled" from space
beings and came out of the Seventh Day Adventist movement. Martin Gardner, of Scientific American puzzle fame, did a book
ut Urantia which you will love or hate.
I have it, I read it. To anyone interested in philosophy, or spiritual movements it is worth looking in to. By far one of the most puzzling books in
my library. I can't say it is "the way things are" but it feels like there are grains of truth within it. Not for those with an sure-minded
investment in mainstream religions.
Hard to read. Interesting concepts... especially about Satan. Muahaha.
I agree, bible much easier read... ug.
If you have the time and inclination, try it out. Do not expect much
Channeled stuff is always a bit slippery, though.
Is it transcending space and time for the *truth*, or is it snake oil, or simply the result of eager believer? That is up to you to decide.
