You will read the remainder of this post in Morgan Freeman’s voice.
We don’t get The Science Channel in Canada, and I don’t have cable anyway, so I’m going to have to download it via torrents until it comes out in DVD format. Freeman was interviewed on CNN recently about this new series, and he somehow managed to gain more of my respect than I thought was possible with his answers:
One of the CNN hosts, Kiran Chetry, began the interview stating, “You are a man of God”, with Freeman snickering while replying, “And when did I ever say that?” Chetry corrected herself and said, “you are a man of faith.” Again, Freeman came back with “If faith is what you believe, then yes,” then alluding to a belief in science.
Freeman warns that people who believe in a literal view of the bible, may not find appeal in the series.
That’s their loss, of course. Theists got him as God in Bruce Almighty, and we get him in this series. And I am stoked.
