David Mitchell on Faith, Atheism, & Agnosticism



A lot of sense in a short clip. Ht Cookies Days. Would be fascinating to hear Mitchell and his wife in conversation on this.

Update: written piece by Mitchell on why agnosticism makes more sense than atheism quoted here.

  1. It's an intriguing interview, particularly given his (relatively) recent marriage to Victoria Coren and her article on belief in God, which you also link to.
    I am one of those who got the impression that he was an atheist, possibly because he went along with (or at least seemed to) the atheistic tendency to disparage Christianity for a laugh. I changed that view a while back when I first heard him speak about being an agnostic and I would love to think that people like Milton Jones are able to continue to be a good witness to those on the comedy circuit like David Mitchell who are still looking to see if there is a God out there, whilst still able to get alongside those who are of the ardently atheist persuasion and not raise their ire to the detriment of their witness.

  2. I don't believe in agnosticism. You either believe in God or you don't.
