Morgan Freeman: 'I think we invented God'

Morgan Freeman has played the role of God onscreen before (in Bruce Almighty and Evan Almighty) and The Science Channel seems to think he has insight into what it means to be God. The network cast him to be their host for their new series Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman. But when asked if he personally believes in God, Freeman says no. “My belief system doesn’t support a creator as such, as we can call God, who created us in His/Her/Its image,” Freeman said. “Has anybody ever seen hard evidence?” Freeman added that it is hard to categorize himself as atheist or agnostic because the actor thinks “we invented God.” The Huffington Post reports:

Does playing God onscreen give you unique insight into deity? The Science Channel seems to think so: It cast Morgan Freeman as the host of its new series, “Through the Wormhole With Morgan Freeman.”

When TheWrap asked the man with the magnificent voice about one of the coming episodes, titled “Did we invent God?,” the distinguished actor didn’t hold back.

Yes […] Well, here’s a scientific question: Has anybody ever seen hard evidence? What we get is theories from our earlier prophets. Now, people who think that God invented us think that the Earth can’t be more than 6,000 years old. So I guess it’s a question of belief. My belief system doesn’t support a creator as such, as we can call God, who created us in His/Her/Its image.
