‘Sure. I’ll Be Saved. Why Not?’: Elon Musk Discusses His Work, Life, and Faith With the Babylon Bee

“Sodom and Gomorrah? Dark. Yikes. You know, God sure changes his mind a lot from the Old Testament to the New Testament. I’m like, ‘Whoa.’ He was pretty vengeful in the Old Testament,” Musk continued. “What was the question?”

Eventually Musk said that he would add “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” to the Bible. 

At the end of the interview, Nicolle asked Musk if he could do him “a quick solid” and accept Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior. 

“I mean…I agree with the principles that Jesus advocated,” Musk replied. “There is great wisdom in the teachings of Jesus, and I agree with those teachings—things like ‘turn the other cheek’ are very important, as opposed to ‘an eye for an eye.’ An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind.”

“So forgiveness, you know, is important, and treating people as you would wish to be treated. Love thy neighbor as thyself,” Musk continued. “Very important.” 

“So that makes like a 60, 70 percent ‘yes,’” Nicolle said. 

“As Einstein would say, ‘I believe in the God of Spinoza,’” Musk replied, citing a concept held by some scientists that the natural laws of the universe constitute a sort of deity. “But, hey, if Jesus is saving people, I mean I wouldn’t stand in his way. You know, like, sure. I’ll be saved. Why not?” 

“I think he just said ‘yes,’” Mann said. 

Nicolle then asked if Musk wanted to be baptized, to which Musk replied, “I was baptized! They dunked me in the water when I was just a baby.” 

“I even had [the Eucharist], which was kind of weird as a kid,” Musk went on to say. “They give you some weird tasting, you know, biscuit and wine. And I’m like, ‘What the hell is this? Isn’t this kind of weird?’”

Looking to the person behind the camera, Mann joked, “Just cut it off when he said ‘yes.’”
