I've done the same, but i've stated my favourites as well, just to help exaggerate the point that phillipcurl's finally managed to make people understand. I must have said nobody's the best because there are two many different styles to judge over at least twice. I backed both quite firmly too.

While perhaps not the most complex folder, I feel like Eric Joisel was the most skilled at allowing origami to be expressive. He made origami like more of an art form as opposed to an arms race of complexity.

I like robert lang, not because he is the best at any part of origami, he, like every other folder on the planet, isn't, but he is the artist most willing to help teach through his books and diagrams, and he helps others teach through programs like treemake. I'm pretty sure i've said thiss before.

Everybody's good at origami in their own way or ways, exept some people are better in more ways than others. That's probably the only way anyone's better than anyone else. Answering "who is best at origami?" is like answering "who made the universe?"

Origami forum rules and regulations no.3:
political or religious topics aren't welcome either as they usually lead to flame wars

I won't state my opinions here but "god" is a kind of religious view.

Oh yeah, if you don't like my example, finding who is best at origami is like answering what is life (i just did a "big questions" unit at school)
