10 Fascinating Scientific Discoveries the Urantia Book Correctly Predicted
In this brief summation, we look at ten specific things the Urantia Book authors claim in 1942 that at the time were not known or confirmed by science, but have since, proved correct.

Fascinating stuff if you like astronomy and earth history.
