Smug Atheist 'Young Sheldon’ Likens God to ‘Invisible Monkey’

Despite all of the adjustments from COVID-19, CBS’s Young Sheldon appears to be principally the identical. Namely, it continues to disparage faith, Christians, and even the very notion of God within the first place. This time round, the present compares God to an “invisible monkey” that doesn’t exist. For a present a couple of baby genius, it’s a fairly dumb argument.

The December 3 episode “Bible Camp and a Chariot of Love” has Sheldon (Ian Armitage) reluctantly attending Vacation Bible School throughout the summer season. There, he reunites with this rival Paige (Mckenna Grace) who outsmarts him in Bible trivia even if each of them couldn’t care much less about faith.

He later research the Bible along with his sister Missy (Raegan Revord) who takes this time to ask Sheldon why he doesn’t consider in God. It looks as if a foolish factor to ask after three seasons of Sheldon clearly being an atheist to the purpose of “destroying” his pastor, however not less than we get a solution. Sure sufficient, it’s the same old smug response that insists God, like an invisible monkey, doesn’t exist as a result of science.


Missy: Can I ask you a query?

Sheldon: If it is “Who are three wicked women in the Bible?,” then go forward.

Missy: Why do not you consider in God? Sheldon.

Sheldon: Because science explains the universe with out the necessity of inventing a supernatural being.

Missy: But how have you learnt for certain he would not exist?

Sheldon: Ooh.

Missy: Stop that.

Sheldon: The burden of proof is not on me. If I stated there was an invisible monkey within the room with us, you should not consider me simply because you possibly can’t show me unsuitable.

Missy: Why is the monkey invisible?

Sheldon: I do not know.

Missy: Is it a ghost monkey?

Sheldon: Sure.

Missy: Then why is not he in heaven?

Sheldon: Because there isn’t any heaven.

Missy: What about monkey heaven?

Sheldon: There is not any monkey heaven. There is not any common heaven. When we die, we stop to exist. That’s it.

Missy: You higher hope you are proper. ‘Cause if I find yourself in common heaven and you find yourself in hell, I’m gonna chortle. But if you find yourself in monkey hell, I’m gonna chortle even more durable.

Sheldon: Just paint your nails.

Missy: God, when Sheldon dies, please ship him to monkey hell. Amen.

I suppose the comparability is form contemplating the present’s earlier examples of hating Christianity, but it surely’s nonetheless extra of the identical. Since this argument by no means comes again once more, I additionally should assume this scene was only for the viewers’s profit. Just one other reminder that God isn’t actual and also you’re an fool for those who suppose in any other case. How’s that for a sitcom?
