It may be observed that the English language is not a system of logic, that its vocabulary has not developed in correlation with generations of straight thinkers, that we cannot impose upon it something preconceived as an ideal of scientific method and expect to come out with anything more systematic and more clarifying than what we start with: what we start with is an inchoate heterogeneous conglomerate that retains the indestructible bones of innumerable tries at orderly communication, and our definitions as a body are bound to reflect this situation.

I do hope you have enjoyed my selections of comparisons between quotes of famous persons and the Urantia Book. It’s a fun hobby of mine.

The Foreword of my new book, The Great Debate on the Scale of Orvonton—A Critical Study of the Urantia Book, begins with a combined selection of Mota and Spirit of Truth inspired human and revelatory comparisons. If you are interested in cosmology and the Urantia Book, check out my instructive 100-page tome. It explores many critical arguments for and against seven frameworks on the scale of Orvonton.

With an unquenchable curiosity, follow me into the dreamy domains of speculation. You and I will be wrong to a greater or lesser degree. (115:1.1) I urge you to have fun formulating your own framework, with lesser error, on the scale of Orvonton.
