PAUL: We’d be idiots to say it isn’t a constant inspiration to be making a lot of money. It is to anyone. Why do business tycoons stay tycoons?
RINGO: We used to get in the car, and I’d look over at John and say, “Christ, you’re a bloody phenomenon!”and laugh - ‘cause it was only him.
GEORGE: Ringo and I are gettin’ married to each other. But that’s a thing you better keep a secret. People would probably think we’re queers.
JOHN: If you say you’re non-religious, people assume you’re antireligious. We’re not sure what we are, but we’re more agnostic then atheistic.
Interesting quotes from the boys from an interview in Playboy Magazine, from the February 1965 issue. I don’t know what George’s is about! I think he’s going to be disappointed though, as Ringo was about to marry Maureen at the time!
I don’t know what God is, or what God had in mind when the universe was set in motion. In fact, I don’t know if God even exists, although I confess that I sometimes find myself praying in times of great fear, or despair, os astonishment at a display of unexpected beauty.

Before I posted this I thought “I could really offend someone.” But I’ve decided that I put my opinion about many things online, why is my religious opinion any different? It’s not. Religion is not untouchable.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
