When asked about his belief in God, in a Rolling Stone interview, Bill Gates, the world’s richest man, had this to say:
“I think it makes sense to believe in God, but exactly what decision in your life you make differently because of it, I don’t know.”
But then Mr. Gates agrees with “people like Richard Dawkins that mankind felt the need for creation myths” (full article here).
Mr. Gates is a decent man. A brilliant mind. A great innovator. But his views on God are quite lacking. For example, this can be seen in the disjuncture between belief in God and one’s ethics.
Perhaps Mr. Gates has that hermeneutic of doubt going on…
