George Carlin - Stand Up About Religion

  • Published on Apr 8, 2019
  • A video I put together containing George Carlin's stand up clips about religion.
    I hope George's family don't mind me making and sharing this.

    If you're still reading, you could do something really positive that would hopefully inspire the pupils at my school. It would be excellent if you could download and rate/review my completely free new game app called 'One Lap Reloaded', which I made to show my pupils it was possible. Here are the links:
    Thank you and take care

    See George, Matt, Ben, Linda, Alanis and many more in "Dogma" online. BUT... consider that religion serves a purpose for the few who benefit SO much from being free of it. ("What would we do if they all knew what we know?")

    Don't tax the churches. Ban them from using federal reserve notes. Separation of church and state, right? What do they need our currency for? Give religious structures free utilities (city water, power etc) and that's it.

    Religion is a fabrication of the mind. Either you right your own bull shit story or follow someone else's. Me I am my own Bull shit as I lived the hard life to know mine. Where I learned the truth from nature. And did not need to be told what it is. It is harsh and cruel. But forging also if you lean to see it for what it is. That's survival not belief of the truth. And makes imagination A weapon used to carve out an existence that never feers time. As any other existence inevitably gets board living in a lie.

    It's quit interesting how standup is still called standup no matter what they talk or say. Couldn't all people who talk to crowds be called standup comedians if they just make joke or two while doing it? Like politicians, pastors, etc.

    .4:00. Most religions stem from sun worship. Study astrotheology and it becomes obvious to many.

    The reality is that George Carlin doesnt know whats real or not. I am not religious but I am also not so pompous that I am going to tell people that religion is false and God doesnt exist.

  • Jim M
    Jim M 2 days ago

    So let me ask you this...if there is no ultimate justice then why are there any morals, why is there love, care, etc, and where did that come from? What benefit would accrue in nature where survival of the fittest is the driving force of evolution? Why do we know it is wrong to kill for example? Nature, without constraint of morals, kills without regard. Why do we know it is wrong to rape? Surely nature, which drives the perpetuation of ones genes has no trouble with rape. Surely homosexuals are then natures mistakes if perpetuation of genes was the natural priority? What prohibition could exist in the absence of ultimate justice (read God) for robbery - if I want something or need it, I should steal it and if anyone gets in my way, I will kill them? Without justice, introduced into the natural order, we'd be doing these things and doing them very well, because nature would never evolve to introduce them of it's own volition. Anyone who thinks to counter that "we've evolved to know that there has to be morals" is a supreme idiot because evolution doesn't tolerate weakness....and the presence of the police is not the explicator for the existence of the rule of law. If you truly believe there is no God, the entire society you live in is a fraud - all the laws of the Western world are based on Judaeo/Christian belief of ultimate justice and once you remove that the whole edifice comes crashing down.....the reason we had the 2008 crash is based on greed, the reason we have so many murders is based on disrespect for the admonishment not to murder, the reason we have so many abortions is based on disrespect for each other and "me first"....if you cannot feed your children, why not kill them? Problem solved. TO all you clowns out there who deny that there is "agency" and a set of rules which ultimately benefit us as opposed to the natural order of no rules, I say you are hypocrites to be constrained by any rules - dodge your taxes, why pay for your kids - go out and have fun, shag the neighbours wife, take his car etc. see how far you get - then go up in front of the judge and ask him who the hell he is to stop you. I guarantee you won't get very far...there are reasons for these rules and agencies to impose them. But, much as I enjoyed listening to some of this comic routine, it is clear that Carlin really believes what he is saying and then it just became annoying listening to stupidity - the idea of why wouldn't I "worship the sun" which was met with whoops of validation and applause is astonishing. Here are logical people - naturalists, who believe they are far more intelligent than people who believe in "some guy up in the sky", believing in a ball of flames in the sky as the explicator for human restraint and identifying with cultures, some who are thousands of years extinct....who worshipped the sun!!!
    For all those who also tear strips out of "the church" - the church is the people, it is those who believe in God and who try follow God's commandments. It is NOT the big buildings, it is not the TAX free status, it is not the cardinals, it is not the animals who have interfered with and abused children etc. etc. These institutions, these men and women have failed to follow the laws that are God given. The laws of God would still stand if the church was poverty stricken - as it should be, - the laws of God stand in direct condemnation of those who abuse children whether priest or lay person, those who covet money as an end in itself and not for the relief of poverty etc. What Carlin is missing here is that he sees the fact that the Church is so corrupt and immediately condemns the rules of God which He gave to the Church. There is nothing wrong with the rules - do not kill, do not steal etc. are universally correct. We all know that. So how is God or His rules at fault here? I rest my case.

      @Corey Holt Oh my God!!! In an effort to demonstrate the sheer stupidity of what you have just said,lets disect your comment, working from the back.."But social animals do not kill their own species. Just like we don't"...well explain what has been happening since Cain slew Abel, all the wars, WW1 and WW2 where millions were KILLED....the gas chambers...
      As for Social animals do not kill their own species...I suggest you pick up a book young haven't a clue what you are talking about...Baboons...societal animals and highly dangerous to their young...a male lion, societal animal will kill the offspring if he has not fathered them himself...
      You really are demonstrating a degree of stupidity, and I have no problem saying that out straight considering your responses to a simple question posed, that is hard to credit. I am done here. I won't be responding further.
      ...I suggest you adopt the maxim of keeping you moth closed so that we can only guess at your stupidity rather than opening it to confirm it as fact.

    • Jim M
      Jim M 22 hours ago

      @Corey Holt You really cannot understand the argument or you're unable to read and progress the thought. NOWHERE HAVE I ADMITTED THAT that the only reason that I don't kill, rape and steal is because I am afraid of punishment from god...I have not even suggested that - if you could look to the question I posed, you imbecile, you might then argue your case as to why morals, love, nurture exist SOLELY as a product of nature and NOT introduced by an AGENT.....if you cannot understand that question then get lost you call me a psychopath but you clearly do not know the characteristics of definition of a psychopath. Your penultimate sentence "I don't believe in punishment from god, and I still don't do those things" completely proves that you have missed the point entirely....and incidentally, since whether by nature or agency we obviously have some morals, where did I suggest that mine are greater or less than yours, you half-wit. Get yourself and education or at least learn to read and understand the point being made, even if you disagree with it.

    • Jim M

      @Corey Holt Really? So you haven't a clue about nature. Herbivores are food for carnivores, and smaller carnivores are food for larger ones...otherwise explain to me how they survive. Nature, have for eons killed without regard...what do you think happened to the dinosaurs...did a meteor not kill them - that's nature!!!
      THe question is jow the apes we evolved from - who are governed by Darwinian fact - survival of the fittest ever developed morals which do NOT fit into Darwinian evolution. Now if you're too stupid to understand the question I am asking of you (and I will get to your previous post next) then don't bother with you ad-hom attacks calling me a psychopath - I suggest you look up the deefinition and my response to @K Muller you gobshyte

    • Corey Holt
      Corey Holt 22 hours ago

      Also, your original post is bullshit. Nature does not "kill without regard". There are thousands of social species that live peacefully together. They understand that gives them the best chance of survival.
      It's the same with humans. We rely on a functional society to survive. Just like the apes we evolved from

      @black and silver diamond Yep, like christians and catholics, just to name a few. Over the many years of being forcibly exposed to the subject (because the Sun knows I never wanted to know so much about religion), it's become apparant to me that Jesus is basically a metaphor for the Sun. (or analogy, or whatever you wanna call it). Jesus "died", lay in a cave (or mountain...) for three days, then came back on Dec. 25th..? The Winter Solstice - the lowest path of the Sun (in the northern hemisphere, at least) - is on Dec. 21st, which is about three days before the 25th, plus or minus the margin of error of 2000+ year-old sun-tracking technology (not to mention calendar technology). And the "three wise men" couldn't possibly be the three stars of Orion's Belt, could they... yep, Jesus is a primitive Sun god.

OR you have to have The Most Lifted Truck Ever flying two giant 'murrikkkan flags, with your sister-wife drinking a six-pack of Coors and blowing your dog in the back. Teeth and murder are optional. In conservative 'murrikkka, it's ok to have sex with your sister, as long as it's not out of wedlock and you don't abort your inbred fetus.

    In the BS department a clergyman can't hold a candle to a comedian who pretended to be a genius about religion but dropped out of church ignorant of its message as a young teen.
    In the BS department a clergyman doesn't hold a candle to a comedian who dropped out of high school before his junior year, who nevertheless pretended to be a genius about sociology, economics, politics, religion, constitutional law, and history in front of thousands of hundreds of thousands of people his entire career!
    Now that is a world-class BSer!
    So great were his skills In BS he has inspired a generation of protégés like Whoopie Goldberg, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert. They parade before congress to testified about their uninformed opinions at the request of their equally uninformed supporter in US Congress.
    I laughed all the time at Carlin until I got past my first year in college. By then I could name every rhetorical trick he used to BS people.
    The thumbs-up votes ought to give one a good gage of how many viewers have yet to acquire thinking skill beyond that of a sophomore in high school. If one is under the age of 15 (when Carlin dropped out) then you have an excuse for your gullibility could study Carlin's method and pretend to be knowledgeable.

    Western people judge religion through their own bad experience with the religion they practised through centuries, just because the churches was corrupted and practised corruption doesn't mean that all religion are bad, take for example islam before pagans arabs adopted this religion, they were like a savage they buried their daughters alive because they considered it as a shame in their Bedouin society norm, when they adopted islam as religion they changed from this savage state to the one who founded one of the biggest and powerful empire who defeated byzantin empire et persian empire and dominated spain for 800 years and also the science was very very valorised .

      @Mehdi El Ok, I might conceded that the idea helped progress mankind (though couldn't the argument be made that Christianity helped reform the barbaric Roman society into the relatively tame European countries?). That being said, this still isn't proof that Islam is actually true. I still don't know of any evidence.

      @Unnamed RedShirt but we can give some credit to the islamic religion that changed the pagan arab bedouin from the stage of savage to the founder of one of the biggest empire in the world in a very short time lapse compared to other empire .
      It depend how you can see the truthiness in this religion and how it can convince you it is true, but we can conclude that islam is the only religion that founded an empire and civilization when other empires created their own religion and civilization .
