My favorite “philosopher”

If you haven't read anything by Robert Green Ingersoll, do so now. The first time I read his brilliant essay, Why I am an Agnostic, I thought for sure it had been written yesterday. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was written over 100 years ago.

Here's a gret quote from Ingersoll:
I am not an Anarchist, a Nihilist, or a Socalist. I am simply a human being willing to give to all other human beings every right that I claim for myself.

Now go read more of his stuff.
