I have read much of the Urantia and have studied the various comments from others who have blogged or written about it. I have studied the pros and cons. I am a cosmologist at heart, looking for conformity in the view of the universe and the integration of science, theology, mythology and anthropomorphically common ground.
Arm Chair reader at best. I have attended coursework in astronomy, cosmology and creationism of various types. I have studied the works of Ludwig Von Mises on the nature of man and the socioeconomic factors that determine human action among individuals and populations.
