This isn't really a question you should only rely on other people to answer. Everyone has their own beliefs. You can talk to others about why they believe one way of the other but in the end this is a soul searching question for yourself. The best place to start is in books, books really allow you to form your own opinion if you read many different sources. The Resurrection or the Son of God is a good book to start with, It gives historical data supporting the resurrection story. This is only one book, find others that give different answers and opinions and decide for yourself.

"A cool dude preaching love, acceptance and peace within oneself. Much like Buddah and Ghandi and other such reputable folks. Overall just a man with some pretty cool ideas that changed the way people in his day thought"

In a literal sense I don't believe Jesus was the son of God, no more than I am the daughter of Gaia; in a literal sense. I think Jesus was either a rebel Rabbi or a lay preacher. I don't find him to be a prophet, nor do I find anyone to be a prophet. I find him to be a man, with failings, failures, emotions, an imperfect being. I don't see anything attributed to him in the bible to be remarkable in the spirit.
Metaphorically, he can claim to be the son of God because he was trying his best to follow the God that he worships as if he was his own father. In some ways, to be declared the son of a God means that he is the embodiment of the deity that he is following and acknowledgement of that devotion.
