29. ☺

Although I always thought John had meant this in a metaphysical way, you cause me to search for his evolved beliefs and, I found this in Wiki:

"Although he commonly rejected the notion of religion, he did claim to have a spiritual side. In an interview conducted in September 1980, Lennon told Playboy journalist David Sheff "People always got the image I was an anti-Christ or antireligion. I'm not. I'm a most religious fellow."[17] When talking about Bob Dylan's new-found Christianity, John said, "But the whole religion business suffers from the 'Onward, Christian Soldiers' bit. There's too much talk about soldiers and marching and converting. I'm not pushing Buddhism, because I'm no more a Buddhist than I am a Christian, but there's one thing I admire about the religion [Buddhism]: There's no proselytizing."[17] After his death in 1980, his wife, Yoko Ono said "John loved and prayed for the human race. Please pray the same for him."


I still so admire him but disagree with him here. Also, I very much disapprove of the way he and Yoko treated Julian Lennon.
