We know the new kid on the block is Jeff Bezos

But history will be kind to Bill Gates because he has touched millions of lives with his Foundation especially Africa.

And he will remain the wealthiest person on earth ever!!!
Wealth is a relative term given the transient nature of money. Dangote made trillions of Naira and kept it locally as Naira. When Naira lost value by jumping from around N170/USD in 2014 to around N360/USD in early 2016, whatever Dangote had effectively lost value, reducing his wealth in dollars by over 50%. The point is money acquired and stored as liquid cash is open to a free fall in value. The gates family have done well by impacting lives almost immediately with their wealth. they have little to fear for inflation. This is the way to go.

What did you I give you above if that's not a reason?

I asked why do you believe all is vanity you answered because a majority of people believe life is not vanity. Are you okay? How is that a reason? So you believe all is vanity because plenty people believe the opposite?

Imagine how a family will dedicate their wealth to improving life for others while majority of those they do it for are ignorant and believe dey want to b wiped out or have their population reduced

The foundation has always been positive since 1994 and nobody complained until the last few years with bills gates involvement with core health related decisions than its philanthropy.

Smtn that started good can still be corrupted and abused. People only started speaking recently and it was based on certain recent concerns not past.

So because money can't buy life, means you shouldn't get it...smh.

But when you are giving your tithe, that ain't vanity abi.

He lived a life, saw many things, and he's taken a bow.

By the way, Bill Gates stopped being the richest man in the world.

The new king is Jeff Bezos.

You wanna talk about passing wealth to children? Remember the children too will also grow old and die leaving the wealth behind.

Nobody is stopping you from living a life of poverty and misery since life is vanity.

A life lived in true and sincere service to others IS NOT VANITY my brother. .....and you DO NOT even need to have much money to do that.

you talk sense some people too take religion too serious and claim they are fighting for God....that's why I don't talk about religion differences cos people of today too violent wen it comes to religion...why can't we tolerate one another...I tire
People don't understand that humanity should come first before religion.

I promise you that many would be shocked and surprised when they die. They would realize that heaven and hell are only imaginations of men.

Let's do good because we want to do good, not because of making heaven.

Shalom.

was he an atheist?
Yes!!!! A big resounding one just like his son. Check out his wikipedia, you won't see any religion there.

If heaven was real, people like Osama Bin Laden would make heaven while this man that touched millions of lives positively would make hell. Funny how people embraced religious doctrines. Very funny.

Later, some people particularly Nigerians will be deceiving themselves that Bill Gates started with nothing and now he is something.

Wow, Rip sir, you left a wonderful legacy.
The bill and Melinda gates foundation was a perfect way of how to spend your tithe, or sow your seed, not throwing it into some hustling fake Mog's wallet.
At least he impacted humanity directly, he can now face God with smiles... On the judgement day.

Offpoint:
Just before you type "Vanity" take a look at his age "94", that's a fulfilled age.

Take a look at his legacy, his name has been written in the golden book of history.

I don't care about all the conspiracy theories about the gates, those guys have done great service to humanity.

He'll forever be remember not only as a billionaire, but also as one of the world's greatest philanthropist. They've saved thousands and millions of lives in Africa.

Rest on sir.

Vanity is only applicable to any human rich or poor, who lived his/her entire life without impacting a single life.
some times it beat me what happened to our reasoning...with all this achievements and even convincing another person to see that keeping wealth to yourself is not a good way of life, treating deadly diseases, spending billions of dollars in research to give humanity a clean environment to live in, not only that doing it for decades, and some low life still plug there brain to 32kilobyte thinking still saying something like it vanity? at 94years old?? ...please Nigerians if our government is making us see them as Bad leaders, not the Gate family.

IPOBs don't believe in Nigeria but they are still Nigerians.

Some Catalanions don't believe in Spain but they are still Spanish.

Most Arab countries have refused to recognize Israel as a country but Israel is still a country.

In all these 3 instances are battle of Ideas. Would say any of it is invalid because they are still intertwined with the other?
