Now, Morgan Freeman takes on an even bigger challenge ”” searching for answers to the some of the great mysteries of our universe. Freeman hosts a special for the Science Channel, Through The Wormhole.
Freeman credits the hand of providence for guiding him to the project. “I’ve been interested in this subject for a very long time,” Freeman tells NPR’s Neal Conan.
In Through The Wormhole, all theories around the creation of the universe are entertained, says Freeman. But those who take a literal view of the Bible will not find the series encouraging.
If the Bible is interpreted literally, then “the world is only about 6,000 years old,” says Freeman. “So we have to do that with care, but ask the questions. Mostly what the series does is ask the questions. I don’t think it produces any answers.”
