    I only remember the main contents of the "dead souls" but I can say that I liked it quite a lot because of its lightness, irony and active approach. I don't like Dostoyevsky very much, especially the...

    Even if human influence would be small, it is still some. The more we can reduce our impact, however small, the less worse it may become. The greenhouse-effect is not the only reason to cut down on...

    As far as I know the earliest Gospel is Mark's (66-74 AD or shortly thereafter), Luke around 80 AD and Matthew around 85 AD (difficult to say of course). Not much is known of the author of the forth...
