"I think people understand now that I'm not religious, they understand that I'm nearly anti-religion.. when I talk of religion I'm talking about the force that's cut Ireland in two. I'm not religious at all, but I do believe in God very strongly, and I don't believe that we just exploded out of thin air, I can't believe it."
- Bono, 1982
