What a joke.  The guy's as bad as any Democrat using disclaimers, "Melinda goes to and I participate in". What does that mean, "I participate in?" He gives her $20 bucks to throw in the bucket when ''she'' goes to church? or he actually shows up for functions involving his children? or he's tired of fighting with Melinda over her taking the kids to church? "It makes sense to believe in God". Nowhere does Gates claim he believes in God or is catholic. I'm removing the category, as well.  This whole notion is a mockery and a hoax.  [[User:RobSmith|RobS]]<sup>[[User talk:RobSmith|De Plorabus Unum]]</sup> 12:02, 20 April 2020 (EDT)

  • I think it makes sense to believe in God... doesn't mean he himself believes in God; it could be justification for not firing "irrational" believers on his payroll. Without further evidence that he himself is a believer in the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, I'm changing the subheading. RobSDe Plorabus Unum 09:31, 18 April 2020 (EDT)

I removed the whole section and placed it here. In the context of this article, this subsection makes no sense and has broken links.

Alleged religious views of Bill Gates

Bill Gates' January 13, 1996 Interview with Time Magazine reporter Walter Isaacson:

Isaacson: Right? Isn't there something special, perhaps even divine, about the human soul?

His face suddenly becomes expressionless, his squeaky voice turns toneless, and he folds his arms across his belly and vigorously rocks back and forth in a mannerism that has become so mimicked at Microsoft that a meeting there can resemble a round table of ecstatic rabbis. Finally, as if from an automaton, comes the answer: "I don't have any evidence on that." Rock, rock, rock. "I don't have any evidence on that."[1]

In 2014, Gates declared, "But the mystery and the beauty of the world is overwhelmingly amazing, and there's no scientific explanation of how it came about. To say that it was generated by random numbers, that does seem, you know, sort of an uncharitable view [laughs]. I think it makes sense to believe in God...”[2]


Is this what's being alluded to? [1]

We've raised our kids in a religious way; they've gone to the Catholic church that Melinda goes to and I participate in.

What a joke. The guy's as bad as any Democrat using disclaimers, "Melinda goes to and I participate in". What does that mean, "I participate in?" He gives her $20 bucks to throw in the bucket when she goes to church? or he actually shows up for functions involving his children? or he's tired of fighting with Melinda over her taking the kids to church? "It makes sense to believe in God". Nowhere does Gates claim he believes in God or is catholic. I'm removing the category, as well. This whole notion is a mockery and a hoax.

This whole sections is pure garbage. It says,

(A) To "become a Catholic" one must be baptized Catholic. Show evidence Bill Gates was ever baptized anything. (B) the article's own source link reads,
Do you believe in God?
"I agree with people like Richard Dawkins that mankind felt the need for creation myths. Before we really began to understand disease and the weather and things like that, we sought false explanations for them.

What a joke

What a joke this communist agitprop is. "Bill Gates started programming computers at age 13 (in 1968 before home computers were invented, the size of a small computer was the size of a Mack Truck, cost $1 million which his parents gave him for Christmas and he partly paid for mowing lawns).

Game Over, Mr. Bill Gates. RobSDe Plorabus Unum 12:55, 20 April 2020 (EDT)
