Miranda Hart and Agnosticism

The funniest Miranda Hart clip ever isn’t from her own show, but from Hyperdrive where she plays a supporting role…

It’s the year 2051 and the dominant faith appears to be agnosticism. So when Diplomatic Officer Chloe Teal (played by Miranda Hart) reunites with her old flame, he asks her to rekindle his (non) faith through the miracle of song:

This clip made me laugh more than anything in recent memory. Trying not to overthink it, but how many people do I know (including myself on a bad day) who have “hazy feelings of spirituality” which are quickly overshadowed by empirical reasoning? Lots of folks.

What if agnostics weren’t so namby-pamby, but they actively proselytized? Then (as the song goes):

Run to the streets
Tell everyone
He might have made the trees
He may have made the sun…

From Hyperdrive s02e01, “Green Javelins.”
