When online magazine, 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.

Freeman said answering whether he was an atheist or agnostic was "hard" because the actor thinks "we invented God."

"So if I believe in God, and I do, it's because I think I'm God," he said.

"The question of if we're alone only occurs to you every now and then, when you look up and say, 'Oh goodness, this can't be all there is,'" Freeman told HuffPost earlier this year. "If you are going to try to logically answer the question of if we're alone in the universe, the answer is, 'We can't be.'

Freeman famously played the Almighty in "Bruce Almighty" and its sequel, "Evan Almighty." He's set to star as the Earth-bound Lucius Fox in "The Dark Knight Rises," which is out in theaters on July 20.
