    I don't really believe that Jesus ever lived... He may have. But I'd like some objective proof that he isn't just another sun-god archetype. If he did live, I'd think of him as a shining example of humanity. If he didn't, that's fine with me too, it doesn't change anything in my beliefs. I think we are all children of God, of varying degrees of consciousness and enlightenment. If jesus did live, I think he was no more born of a virgin than my dear pet cat. Again, a wonderful example to live by though. Jesus, not the cat. To answer your question, Aldous Huxley. He was my first love. Brave New World, Antic Hay, Chrome Yellow, and Those Crazy Essays About The Olive Trees That Put Me To Sleep Every Time. There was something great and humble in that man. Genius with out pretentiousness. I've always considered Gandhi as a whole lot of awesome as well.
