  I want to focus on Haskell not the whole world ;)

  I've seen "Faith, Evolution, and Programming Languages" (by Philip
Wadler), he is talking about possible universes and logic ("I can't
imagine a universe where modus ponens doesn't work..." - something like
that), aliens and other cool stuff :D. And it looks like they are
"discovering" Haskell rather than "developing" it. Am I right? If so, it
really can be infinite.

  Anyway, thanks for your response, I will stick to
http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Learning_Haskell and I'll try to work
out my learning roadmap.
