    It's only conjecture, but makes more sense to me than a judaeo-christian god.

    "The unexamined life is not worth living", as one of the Greek philosophers said. I used to love Marcus Aurelius' Meditations. He talked about controlling negative emotions in order to be a better person. Strangely - possibly influenced by Democritus - he did not believe in an after life. Also it seems bizarre for a man caught up in violent wars to write on being a better, more civilized person.

    Yes, Socrates it turns out. I like Stoicism,accepting life with all its vicissitudes, what we call "grinning and bearing it"

    Arabic and Hebrew languages are the only two Semitic languages in the world where text is read opposite of the way we read it.:)
