I was graduated at Samara State University as mathematician. I collected 14 088 short replies for about 2 000 situation that it is the world record. In my mind I named my manuscript “The book of Complete Religion”.  I translated it from Russian to English.


“The great surrounding World became small, contiguous, cramped, closed and quick.

It is not productively to look for any complete answer for an inquiry into the gospel, Koran, torah, Hindu, Buddhist, philosophical and other books. It is good to see all contradiction and oppositions at once in one place.

There are only four kinds of contradictions and arguments. An interlocutor may commends and praise something. He may condemns and blame something. He may affirm that something exists or lack. Then you formulate a theme (subject) and aim of his speech (saying) by one or two words. Then you could find this theme in alphabetical order and read contrary opinions right away.

However, it is not good to say contrary opinions right away. It is better to show some text to an interlocutor.

The book includes only well-founded and logical replies. Also it has witty, jocular and confused ones. The book was created on a base of proverbs, sayings (90% great men’s sayings are not well-founded and they were given up), parables, jokes of all nations and times. Some replies were adopted from TV arguments and many different places.

New well-founded opinions appear permanently. The book grows like the tree of knowledge (cognition). The book is alive. This is its distinction from other invariable books. Later the book will be biggest, and all jokes fall out. Later it will be the most readable book because everyone could find one’s answer for any query there. Everyone could find confirmation of one’s thoughts there. Everyone could cognizes, understand and take else opinion into account without disdain there.”
