Normally, I’d only bring up the topic “Does God exist?” if we were lying on my living room floor, passing the bong around, but I’m making an exception for Morgan Freeman! The God who succeeded George Burns as our Earth God is the host of The Science Channel’s “Through the Wormhole” (“Note to self, find a new title for my memoirs.” – John Travolta) and in an upcoming episode they get into the existence of God. While talking to Morgan Freeman about the show, The Wrap asked him if he believes in God. Morgan got deep and said he thinks that God is something we invented so musicians would have someone to thank when they win awards and I’d have a name to take in vain to give my abuelita a reason to slap me in the mouth.
Did we invent God?
So there isn’t a God up in the sky somewhere. We came up with God ourselves.
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.
Would you consider yourself an atheist, or agnostic?
It’s a hard question because as I said at the start, I think we invented God. So if I believe in God, and I do, it’s because I think I’m God.
“Have we ever seen hard evidence?” Stop playing, MorFree! Look in the mirror and there’s your proof. Is Morgan Freeman, who is obviously God in human form, trying to throw us off his trail or is he being extra bold? I would pray to God (aka an 8X10 glossy of Morgan Freeman hanging over my dresser) for guidance, but I don’t know what to believe anymore! Just pass me the bong…
