The Book of Urantia = Biggest Crock of Bullshit I've Ever Read
I don't think I have ever read a book more pretentious and linguistically convoluted than The Urantia Book. This is a book filled with unnecessary descriptive language, over use of adjectives, and drags on to the point of complete and utter boredom.

In contrast, the bible seems like a well written work compared to this amateurish endeavor at creating a new religion. For me, Urantia was a complete and utter fail. At least the bible was genuine in the fact that the men who wrote and compiled it likely believed much of what they wrote, even though they were wrong in many cases. Urantia on the other hand lacks any sense of the genuine. You can tell this book was made up from scratch, and it contains no useful information.

Are we to honestly believe that this book was divinely delivered? Give me a fucking break! There isn't one snippet of useful, enlightening, or astounding information contained in there. Granted, I didn't read the whole thing, only bits and pieces here in there. How the fuck can anyone actually read this entire mess?

Go ahead and prove me wrong if you disagree. Please provide some enlightening quotes if you think I am wrong.

One thing all religions have in common when ever I study them is they never fail to disappoint.

well then you did NOT read it and what you have stated proves it is too past your ability to comprehend it. Just because this is so, is not reason to trash it. It has everything genuine about it and you are a shill. By your fruits. It is divinely delivered yes, but so man rejects hugely the divine. Not knowing what it is.

There is a thread here full of enlightening quotes from it. Thread: Discovering the Urantia Book

This book is not made up from scratch, it is too organized and I have taken that trip to Paradise myself and am in contact with many here to help this planet. the book is REAL.

For an example, let me present one paragraph from this absurd literary monstrosity:

"(184.1) 16:0.1
THE Seven Master Spirits of Paradise are the primary personalities of the Infinite Spirit. In this sevenfold creative act of self-duplication the Infinite Spirit exhausted the associative possibilities mathematically inherent in the factual existence of the three persons of Deity. Had it been possible to produce a larger number of Master Spirits, they would have been created, but there are just seven associative possibilities, and only seven, inherent in three Deities. And this explains why the universe is operated in seven grand divisions, and why the number seven is basically fundamental in its organization and administration."

[link to www.urantia.org]

Ummmmm, does anyone have the slightest effing clue what the fuck this paragraph is even talking about? Well the answer is absolutely nothing, it is just a bunch of nice sounding and words jumbled together to sound cool or spiritual for all the idiots out there who will actually buy into this garbage.

Yea, OP, the first time I read the book I didn't understand it either. There is a whole lot if information and it is difficult to read.
The second time through I didn't read it, I studied it. After a while I began to see the logic behind it and how everything is inter-related and inter-connected. It is actually a thing of beauty.

Actually there could be something there, check this Kolbrin passage

"The eternal ages of time unrolled as a scroll before his eyes, and he saw written thereon all that was to become and occur. The great vaults of Heaven were opened up unto him and he saw the everlasting fires and unconsumable powers that strove therein. He felt within himself the stirring of inexpressible love, and unlimited designs of grandeur filled his thoughts. His spirit ranged unhampered through all the spheres of existence. He was then even as God Himself, and he knew the secret of the Seven Spheres within Three Spheres. "

I disagree, it's not just "a bunch of nice sounding and words jumbled together"... sounds like a comprehension issue on your part OP

Not to say the material isn't entirely speculative...since no one knows could possibly know this sort of information

I agree with you that the book is probably BS
But I like the way it's worded, it's fun to read

Yea...riiiiiiight. :/

I find it amusing that almost all religious texts have to be overly convoluted to the point of confusing the vast majority of people who read them. Just look at Christianity and all the hundreds of denominations with their alternate interpretations of biblical passages.

You would think divine beings would have the knowledge, intelligence, and literary capability to keep their "divinely inspired texts" concise and to the point? But no, apparently not. It's always some retarded, jumbled, abstract writing that the vast majority of people won't understand, and most intelligent people will shrug it off as pure nonsense.

I agree 100% - I wouldn't be surprised if it was written by L. Ron Hubbard. I read Urantia (as much as I could stand) and one of L. Ron's scientolgy books on "Dienetics"; very similar. Both are convoluted, boring and useless.

In defense of Eckhart Tolle, I will say that his writing ability is far superior to whomever wrote the Urantia Book.
I read his book "Power of Now" and one can learn a few important things from it. It is basically Buddhism repackaged for modern times, but without the hokey religious rituals and all the esoteric crap.
