    The adoption is certain. Go to my blog list and look through my last fourteen blogs. It was quite an adventure. Thank you for the prayers.

    Quite somehow, school is always school . I don't feel good with school currently though. Too many works that bother me. You?

    The exams are going well, but I could do more. I understand your enthusiasm for moving away, but right now what I want is to visit my home for summer and find peace - the last month I had some anxiety problems and a difficulty to sleep whose cause may lie ont the fact of my drinking a lot of coffees (except ofcourse for the permanent existential angst that tortures me).

    I think I' m familiar with the bible but we must remember that it was written (I' m talking about the 4 gospels) between 60 and 100 a.d., which means that it is possibly based on second hand stories: in other words the perspective of the writer could affect its content. For example, one of the synoptic gospels uses the phrase "kingdom of heaven" instead of "kingdom of god" because it was directed to a christian community with a past in judaism where god's name isn' t mentioned; also in the last gospel, that of John, take place many miracles which are completely new etc.

    I don' t agree that a christian should give the right to be his own master - and I dont' agree on your evaluation of its difficulty: I see all the time people obbeying sth else except theirselves (even if they fail to understand it). I think the difficult task is to be your own master, because only then your moral substance is meaningfull. Most religious people have not sucrificied their free will, because they never had it. (Jacques Lacan, a famous french psycoanalyst of the 60's used to say that it' s the Other that desires through our desires - if you have in mind that the majority of people have similar tastes in music, clothes, style, attitude, beliefs etc. you will probably agree that the freedom of will is an achievement -which needs to be guarded all the time- that follows severe attempts of thinking and understanding the structures of society and even the concepts of "freedom" and "self").

    p.s. my view on the Nazarene is similar to Dostoyevski's in his story about the grand inquisitor which is included in Karamazof brothers.

    Yes! I'm excited too. She's such a great young lady. Her entire family will be coming through NYC and we'll find a time to meet. I guess that means I meet Dorky too.

    Right now it's going quite well. Difficult times shall come in June when exams take place! I am going to need one more year (total: 5, now I'm at 3rd) to finish university but my grades are high and life seems to me more pleasant than ever. What about you? Also, would it be easy for you to tell me in which church you belong and explain the doctrines? Differences within christianity interest me as much as differences between communists.
