If It Quacks Like A Duck.


From the Desk of George Barnard – August 23, 2009.

From 1945 until 1958 (the year I left home to go overseas) my father studied in detail every newspaper he could lay his hands on. He did so every evening. My dad was a serious ‘middleweight’ politician.
My mother frequently commented on her belief that precisely half of what was in those papers was true, and precisely half was untrue. However, no one knew which half was which. Consequently, after reading them each evening, one was sure to be half as wise and twice as confused as at the start of the day. My mom was a housewife and an occasional stand-up comic.

Perhaps my dad’s attitude caused me to take nothing much for granted unless I researched it, and perhaps my mom’s attitude was decisive in my seriously disliking fiction, enjoying research and statistics.

James W. Riley, it is said, once wrote: “When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck.” Obviously discerning about truth, James Riley, nevertheless, did not enquire about which species of duck he saw, whether it was male or female, its Latin name, mating habits, origin, or migration habits. J.W.R. was rather casual about his ducks.

In contrast, the 11:11 Progress Group has done a great deal of research regarding the Urantia Secondary Midwayers. We know that originally there were 1,984 of these offspring of Adam and Eve, 1,111 of them that remained loyal to Michael, although presently there are thousands more to assist us. We know these planetary helpers to be multi-talented, work in pairs or teams, are supervised by Machiventa Melchizedek, and that they time-prompt people.

We’ve learned of them from Dr. Courtney Brown who notes them in chapter 8 of his book, Cosmic Voyage. Much detail about the Midwayers can be found in papers 77 and 114 of the Urantia Book, and even more information is available from the 11:11 books written by George Barnard, as well as what can be learned from the thousands of transcripts of 11:11 Progress Group’s channeling efforts.

The Urantia Planetary Helpers are no longer described as conjecture, but brilliant spiritual Teachers. They are not the doubtful notion of the feeble-minded, but accomplished Healers. Also, they are not the ever-illusive product of a misguided theory of some over-active minds, but as real as you and I.


If you are awakened at precisely 11:11 PM, as do Midwayers, and as streetlights blink on and off for you, as is caused by Midwayers, and if you feel your hair being stroked as is done by Midwayers, by golly it might be good manners to say hello and get to know the Midwayer that has come to see you.
