I just felt like shaking up the religion section. Watch the clip and all you religious folk tell me what you think of it :)

And he can make a ton of things, but he can't live without money! XD

Thus the result when churches claim to be the guys who are like the receiving end of a telephone call to God. Truly is sad.

I didn't laugh. His sun worshipping wasn't new; Egyptians practiced it before him. And as a joke it did badly, as an insult on religion it was average, I've seen better from Dawkins and Hitchens.

That is sad, the whole point is to laugh. Maybe if you loosen up and watch it with a less skeptical eye you would laugh. Carlin is not actually trying to make a cohesive argument against religion you know.

Response: It is just another atheist complaining because God does not do what they want God to do, despite the fact that they are the servant of God. Not the other way around.

While at the establishment of Madam Itookya, we held a seance, and George Carlin appeared to us and said, "I know the truth, oh praise be, I finally know the truth. If you've got 24 odds and ends on a table, and 23 of them fall off, odds are what's left is an end."
Thinking is extremely taxing on the gullible, and it takes hours to clear the smoke.

I'm not atheist, but I found this pretty funny.

My favorite part is 'AND HE NEEDS MONEY!', because it's definitely the most pertinent. I think that this is less of a critique of religion in general, and more of an evisceration of our particularly hypocritical brand of popularly adopted American Christianity.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

I think he did a good job of creating a caricature of religion for the purpose of getting laughs.
If that was the only issue, then vote moderation could be avoided more often, since a vote in which the voter does explain sufficiently how at least one point a debater made swung their vote, would be considered sufficient. -Airmax

Well he's both arguing against religion and 'joking' about it. But I'm not impressed. I actually wanted to see if it was funny but it wasn't, I'd prefer The Thinking Atheist or Mr Deity videos to the crap I saw in your video.

Primarily because he is a comedian and that is his job XD

I don't understand you people. You have forced your religion down other peoples throats for centuries, and yet if a Muslim or a Jew or an Atheist walks around doing the exact same thing they are terrible and whatever they are saying is 'crap', as you so nicely put it.

I agree. It is intended to be taking lightly and not to make all Christians get all indignant.

Lame cop-out. Lots of religous folks watched South Park and Family Guy anti-religious sentiment notwithstanding. I did not laugh because he made anti-religious jokes. I did not laugh because I didn't find them funny. I've already given several persons and vids here I found funny not minding anti-religious sentiment.

Yet you still find it necessary to call it 'crap'? Your opinion alone does not dictate the opinions of others.

Quit being an a$$hole. I'm sure that's not the only Carlin joke about there so stop bothering over something trivial.
