    Daisaku Ikeda.  A survivor of World War II in Japan, he continues to speak on peace with various world leaders and publish their dialogues.  He feels that one on one, peace can  be accomplished.  Right now he is in line for the Nobel Peace Prize - he is a type of contemporary philosopher with very practical points for daily living.

    Tough question, but I'd have to say Yehoshua of Nazareth. He lived a life of spirituality, placing importance on love, responsibility and humility.

    I was born into an interesting family. My mother's father was a Southern Baptist minister, but I didn't like his brand of fear-motivated churchiness. My father inspired me by his humble search for spiritual answers in numerous philosophies, from the Bhagavad Gita to Edgar Cayce.

    I found great inspiration from the works of L. Ron Hubbard, and grew spiritually by leaps and bounds by unburdening the hidden sources of spiritual torment.

    I found great inspiration from the teachings of Gautama Siddhartha Buddha. I learned from Rinpoche Gyaltsen and other Tibetan Buddhist monks the beauty of generosity, wisdom and compassion and the power of the paramita of these.

    And I returned to Christianity, understanding far more than I could ever have if I had followed someone else's dogma "religiously."

    Good on you Lone77Star. I don't believe in god but I don't have a problem with someone who does. You have been through it all and thought it through and made your decision. I hope your belief is good to you.
