Use this study aid with your choice of online or hardcopy editions of The Urantia Book. The annotation pages are formatted to work well with computers, tablets, and cell phones. You may want to try using the annotations in a separate, narrower window placed beside (or behind) the window you use for reading The Urantia Book online. Run some experiments to see what works best for you.
Links to additional information on the annotation pages should come up in a new tab. Please let me known if any of the links are not working properly.
Use the “Annotated” button in the banner to access a Table of Contents and go to a particular paper. Additional tools and configurations for the menus are in the process of development that will provide options for navigating the website.
Please be patient. I used professional webmasters for building the UBtheNEWS website. This is my first experience with building a website. Much thanks goes to Rene Ertzinger for coaching me through the process!
Welcome to UBannotated:UBanimated. I (Halbert Katzen) began working on this project in November 2016. I am also the creator of UBtheNEWS.com, a project focused on documenting how new discoveries and scientific advance increasingly support the version of planetary history presented in The Urantia Book. Like UBtheNEWS, UBannotated:UBanimated is an independent project based on the public domain (English) publication of The Urantia Book.
Though traveling around the country for a few years, doing the UBtheNEWS project, was a rich adventure, it was not exactly what one would call a “great career move.” Consequently, with this project I do not have the time and money to make a full-time commitment to the work, as I did with UBtheNEWS (Extended for a few more years by the generous contributions of so many. Thanks!).
Fortunately, unlike researching and writing UBtheNEWS reports, this type of work can be done with reasonable efficiency on a part time basis, in spurts, as necessary!
This union of epochal teachings and evolutionary technology, this child of individual initiative and community interest, as with all expressions of new life, yearns for all the nourishment needed to sustain optimal growth. I will do all I can when I can because I care. And for every $30 contributed to the project, I will dedicate an additional hour of time. You can feel free to direct me to areas of annotation interest that are especially meaningful to you. And after completing the work made possible by your contribution, you will receive an email that lets you know how your contribution was used to improve the website.
The “UBanimated” aspect of this project–blogs and forums for improving the annotations–will be developed after first doing a substantial amount of work on the the annotation pages. Until then, we still have lots of other ways to communicate with each other.
Look for the UBannotated:UBanimated group on facebook! Please email me your suggestions for additions and improvements to the website or to get a phone number. Telephones are still a fun and useful way to communicate! These different modes of communication can all work well for U. B animated.
