Science philanthropists. Religion priests. Non religion.

Charles T. Munger has been known for many things over his decades-long career, including longtime business partner of Warren E. Buffett; successful investor and lawyer; and plain-spoken commentator with a wide following.

Now Mr. Munger, 90, can add another title to that list: deep-pocketed benefactor to the field of theoretical physics.

He has donated $65 million to the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The gift — the largest in the school’s history — will go toward building a 61-bed residence for visitors to the institute, which brings together physicists for weeks at a time to exchange ideas. (1)

Another “philanthropist”.

Giving money to something he does not understand.
For some other people to do things he does not understand.
For analyzing models, building machines and theorizing about nothingness and it’s powers…

Just because it is called “science”.

There was a time when religion ruled the world.
People gave money to priests.
For things they did not understand either…
Too bad people believed because they just had to believe.
Just because it was called “religion”.

Then came a Man who just spoke.
Not for religion or science.
Just for love and forgiveness.
This Man did not require money.
This Man just… died.

Between religions, choose wisely.
Non-religion is the quintessence and the most powerful of them all…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
