Depends what you mean:
There are many branches of philosophy and therefore many of us have various theories which we support.
My personal favorite is:
Negative Act Utilitarianism

Piagetian epistemology, rational egoism, Enlightenment political philosophy (tempered with a strong Machiavellian streak), Stoicism, Epicureanism, propositional logic. Nietzsche when I'm in a bad mood.
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it."
- Lord Dunsany -

"The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? "
- W. B. Yeats -

Isn't Epicureanism contrary to Stoicism?
I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and all your demons.
I'll be the one to protect you from
A will to survive and a voice of reason.
I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and your choices, son.

I'm interested in these things, I don't necessarily adhere to all of them.

Pantheist- Objectivist- Rationalist

I know pantheism and objectivism are conflicting in some regards. I call myself an atheist, however, because I don't believe in an intelligent God. Yes, I believe universe is like the 'mind of God,' but I use the term much like Einstein did. Essentially, I live like an atheist because my pantheism has nothing to say about this realm, so I might as well just say I'm an atheist.

This. Philochristos's philosophy is the best.
Genesis I. And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them.
