May... awesome. Nice and far ahead!

St Patrick's Day, eh? Interesting, I must plan ahead on this one. Let's sit around rocking out to U2...

Welcome to March, by the way!
Thank fuck it's March. February can go burn in some godforsaken non-existent hell.

I did love its weather though. Nice and cool for the most part. That's why I left Queensland and came here. I often wonder if hell is just a fictionalised account of life in Queensland.

You've not been to Asia recently, have you?

Although, it is dry here, whereas it's humid in Asia.

I'm a believer in Jesus by the way, but agnosticism FTW if it's what works for you!
I suspect you and I could have some good theological discussions. Ever read Søren Kierkegaard or Paul Tillich by any chance? The uni library has some of both. I read Tillich's Dynamics Of Faith last year and his take on things is very interesting. It's a kind of theism I quite respect.

Good one.

I've not been to Asia ever.

I would especially love to visit the former Soviet republics in Central Asia. They sound absolutely fascinating. Though some of the living standards and politics sound fairly hellish.

Gotta look them up and add them to my reading pile. You already know I'm doing theology at the College of Divinity, but I don't proselytise actively because it's just annoying to everyone else. You have the right to make up your own mind, and if Christianity isn't for you, then all power to you with finding something that works.

Yeah I'm a bad Christian when compared to a lot of evangelicals - I actually think ethics, morals and rights are more important than religious beliefs.

Hell yes. Kazakhstan is one of my must-go-to places.

I have recently been fascinated with spending some time in Turkey, too. Pre-Petra mountain carved buildings? Underground ancient Christian cities? Pide? It's all good there!

Pide

I'd love to go to Constantinople, I mean, Istanbul

Also, China'd be good to go to this year. See the Wall, the Shaolin Temple, the Forbidden Palace... eat real Chinese food and get food poisoning...

Somehow being Chinese just isn't enough, you've gotta be there and experience it just once.

I would dearly love to do some theology myself. I'm particularly interested in its socio-political role, and some of my historical research has been conducted into the role of the Reformation in the creation of the present day international political order. I've also done a bit of more purely historical work on Calvin's Geneva.

I never liked proselytisation either, when I was religious. It's a deeply personal thing, I think, and I always kept my religion to myself. If people wanted to know about it, they could ask me. I run a similar policy with my agnosticism. And I've always made jokes about religion that would get me kicked out of most churches.

And evangelicals ... well, they aren't my favourite people, let's just put it that way. I have an almost morbid fascination with extreme fundamentalism, though. It's like a car crash in theological form - hard to look away.

I want to go to Kyrgyzstan just for its incredible name. I have also been fascinated with Azerbaijan for years and years, though that's in the Caucasus rather than Central Asia. The entire Caucasus area just sounds fantastic. I read Mikhail Lermontov's A Hero Of Our Time solely on the basis that I heard it had amazing descriptions of scenery in the Caucasus.

Turkey for the win too.
