Strange question! I know, lol. :thinking:

 

But I was just watching the interview that he did on Charlie Rose earlier this year and the interviewer mentioned that both of his children have biblical names and it's true. So I was wondering if that was the case? They are both nice names I think.

 

The other guys too, I wonder if they are. :laugh3:

 

Ok, dumb thread of the day. :P

Hahaha, thanks! :) I'm sure he believes in a higher power. Just listen to how he describes song writing. Or awhile ago he when he was talking about the chance they've given he said that 'there must be something higher'. :)

 

I guess thats a personal question though. I bet he wouldn't answer if someone asked, lol.

in both books i have, he was described as being very christian when he was younger. interviews i have read have said he believes in a higher power, but not necessarily a christian god. he's more into the morals apparently, saying "isnt it nice just to be nice? i think its nice just to be nice."

and he studied ancient history at uni, so theres lots of biblical tie-ins there.

id like to know about the others too.

Yeah, I was reading an old Q magazine interview and it said that he said his mother was very Christian, but that it didn't really stick onto him. But he does have really good morals. (attractive!!! :kiss: )

from Rolling Stone 2005/2006 Rock & Roll Yearbook edition:

 

..."Martin's spirituality also took a sharp turn. He was raised believing in a Christian God - not the same God, he's quick to point out, as 'those crazy American fundamentalists' like George W. Bush - and at an early age he felt the collective power of singing in church. 'Everybody singing together is the best feeling in the world,' he says. At Sherborne, meeting kids of many colours and creeds, Martin found his beliefs had morphed inot something more ecumenical. 'I went through a weird patch, starting when I was about 16 to 22, of getting God and religion and superstition and judgement all confused,' he recalls. 'I think a lot of our music comes out of that. I definitely believe in God. How can you look at anything and not be overwhelmed by the miraculousness of it? Everything from that carpet to your nose to my balls is amazing. In fact, my balls are a particular miracle.'

 

i think i'll leave it at that, hope that helped a little :)

i forgot about this!!!!! i LOVED this bit. that whole article makes me amazingly happy. tee hee!

but you forgot the end bit, where the interviewer says something like "for the record, there is no connection between my nose and martin's balls."

*squee*

I think he came from a religious family (i.e his parents) but as far as I've read/heard' date=' he's not a regular church goer or anything like that. Gwyneth comes from a Jewish family, I think.[/quote']

 

I think her father was Jewish, but not her mum...

Anyways, about the other guys, i have no idea! It would be nice to know thugh, just out of curiousity...

Ooh' date=' is the whole interview online somewhere?:)[/quote']

 

it probably is, try rollingstone.com, the article was from two summers ago, either late july or early to mid august (2005).

great interview, though. i love the cover..."conquering the world...very gently: wild nights with the nicest guys in rock."

must go find my copy...
