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.
"Whatever else is evil, the pride of a good mother in the beauty of her daughter is good. It is one of those adamantine tendernesses which are the touchstones of every age and race. If other things are against it, other things must go down. If landlords and laws and sciences are against it, landlords and laws and sciences must go down. With the red hair of one she-urchin in the gutter I will set fire to all modern civilization."

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.
