    surprised a heathen/infidel like yourself would enjoy descartes?

    even though osho was a sex-addict/criminal/junkie/fraud, his ideas on ego are great, a very insightful way of looking at the human condition and people's roles in society in contrast to the hard-line objective world model most of us are taught. his books had a very approachable and appealing narrative, whether you agreed or disagreed.

    Descartes actually believed in emancipation from church doctrine. Nothing wrong with believing, just don't be a slave to it. Make your own choices and judgments.
