    It reads that much of this season questions the existance of God.

    Morgan Freeman is an excellent actor and voiceover talent. But, I hope he keeps his political leanings out of this show.

    I love this show. I’ve never gotten a sense that this show is political in any way, it’s just all about questions.

    I love the fact that the Science channel airs an actual program that deals with Science, unlike TLC (also known as The Learning Channel) that airs reality programs.
    The program asks questions, and that’s great, because if nobody asked questions, we would all still be thinking that the universe is thousands of years old, the Earth is flat and is at the center of the universe. Asking questions gets people to use their brains and to think, have experiments, do research, and might lead to new discoveries that will make for a better future for all human beings. Asking questions has been good for people in the past and will continue to be useful for people in the present and the future.

    I was only looking to find if and when season 4 will be aired. I dont mean to disrespect. We are all entitled to our opinions. However one of the previous posts states that they hope Morgan Freeman keeps his political views out…
    The fact is he does a great job and does not introduce his political or religious opinions if you listen closely. Truth is this is one of the most intellectually stimulating shows ever. In fact the idea of spirituality or cosmic connections is examined and supported in many of the episodes. I suspect the earlier post was in fact from a “christian/believer”. Ultimately nothing says that one can only be a man or woman of science or religion. In fact if you so choose this show can make one more aware, informed and more spiritual or religious. I have a hard time with people who want to say God is all powerful and can do anything but then want to say that there is only one way to heaven,god etc. The truth of the matter is that this show boldly goes where no person has gone before and supports the possibility of what we consider supernatural and then explains that things we dont have a complete understanding of and find hard to believe have support on a scientific basis and not just faith.
    ESP, matter out of nothing, religion, God, and the interaction of subatomic particles across relatively large distances (electron spin) do not in anyway attempt to prove the nonexistence of God. I suggest the person who left the post about politics open their mind. If you truly believe in God then you know “God” gave you a brain to use and there is nothing wrong with using it or being intrigued unless you would prefer we go back to the day the “Church” persecuted those who said the earth was round and revolved around the sun. If you beleive repression is best I dare you to find out how many religions talked about the trinity, virgin birth, shepards or men being attracted to a star in the night, messiah, battles of good vs evil, none of these stories started with the “church”. I should not have to rely on what someone says they saw 2000 years ago. God gave me a brain to learn and to figure it out for myself. And just because I am correct does not mean that anybody who believes differntly is wrong. Ever think we could all be right. “There is more than one way to skin an apple”
