Yes, Dear Meredith!
"Individually" values are not lost, never, neither I nor anyone else we will lose our contributions, we will not lose anything of real value because they do not appear anywhere else, but what is lost is the history of the forum, mainly miss lot of study material for new students of UB, students come and there is much work already done,
This value is lost, although that is not permanent it? depends on how you look. because aid, support for study is reflected in numerous threads, here.
I honestly do not care about my own posts, but I can not help but notice the many issues, many pages, so much work, hours and hours of esudio and dedication to write, reply ... lost ... not
useful in the future,
I also understand your point of view, maybe you know something I do not know, because for some very important, but, very important reason must have decided to do this.
Right now, so many people need to have a word of hope? if it is true, all are the same book, but the testimony of so many people, their understandings and insights, help a lot, one way or help, even from the discrepancies between students.
But ... everything to be by and for the good.
For Truth, Beauty, Goodness, for our Father in heaven and on Urantia .
So be it ...
Thanks You Merediht!
All the best to you!
