There aren't any advantages. If there is an advantage it is only that it allows programmers to write sloppy code, which is never a good thing. Strongly typed languages make it abundantly clear exactly what type of data is physically stored in memory at all times whereas typeless languages are ambiguous, inefficient, and make it much more difficult to share data with other programs never mind passing data around the same program. It also makes it far too easy to assign different types to the same variable name.
