iWeeGouldyi : "But he loves you" Spat my drink out

I Am My Greatest Mistake : R.I.P. George. And may Joe Pesci bless your soul!

Simon Harbuckle : Science flew people to the moon. Religion flies people into buildings.

Goose WITTA Noose : Who else is looking though the comments to see if any religious nuts are triggered.

Explicit Low : Religion was invented to control the masses. It's also a money making scheme.

EBK Wave : The scariest thing ppl don't want to come to terms with? When you die, there is nothing- you cease to exist; that's all. There is no afterlife, there is nothing.. that scares ppl because then you'd have to admit you're not special and this life is all you have- and you may have wasted it worrying about bullshit, when you could've just did what you wanted. There is no purpose to life, but to live.. that's the gift, nothing else.

Arth Armani : Religion seems to be a very touchy subject, especially when a priest sees some young boys enter the church..

Vincent Gagné : Theres only 2 reason for people to believe in religion. 1. You're born in a religious family and you get brainwashed. 2. You live a miserable life, so you use religion to escape the reality of certain things, like the fear of death.

1pilot2000 : The "Bible Slammers" and "Jesus Freaks" are the real scary ones! The "Catholic Church" is the oldest. most wealthy, and most corrupt corportion on earth!

Tieflingamer : This guy transformed me from an Evangelical priest to an active atheist

-PaulYang2- : Thanks god for creating earthquake, volcano, tsunami and tornado.

James P : I think deep inside, people knows that god doesn’t exist. They are afraid of admitting god doesn’t exist!

Spaceman 01 : Religion is just multiple failed attempts to control everyone on Earth. Hence why there are many religions.

Anonymous 007 : 7.4 k religious folks offended.. 😂😂

Empress Atheism : Making fun of Christians is the best hobby when I'm bored

Dan Flynn : The bible is a book that has been written by men and for men, full of fables, Contradictions, inconsistencies, Tall tales, half truths, and mythology…definitely not any sort of a reference to quote in a serious discussion. It tells about a god who is all powerful and all knowing, but who creates a universe where he includes suffering and pain (obviously by design...since he is all knowing and had to be well aware)...but he did it in six days…then needed a rest (hardly my idea of all powerful...why could he not just will it to be so instantly). Then he is also described as a god with all too human failings and traits...he is vindictive…he is mean…and he carries a grudge…plus he likes to alternately bribe (with heaven or 72 virgins...depending on which book is used) or threaten (with hell or chariots of fire) a lower life form (man)...sort of like we would step on an ant (or even more...as though we were to reason with an amoeba).  Somehow despite all of this obviously going on, he supposedly "loves us" (talk about your tough love!)…and we were created in his image (says man…of course…but how insulting to a divine being that would be…how totally inadequate). "But we do not understand his plan" (what plan?)...People need blueprints, but certainly an all powerful being would not. He also must be a bungler…a real screw up…since he supposedly had to flood the earth and kill most of the inhabitants...starting over from scratch…a redo (but he could not have foreseen this?). This god (a supposedly perfect being), also has a human temper…he gets angry and nasty (just like People do)...plus he likes to test this lower life form (which makes absolutely no sense, as he is all knowing, so he is aware of what the results would be)…he also is well aware of what this lower life form is thinking…long before doing any bogus tests. Truly…what would any such supposed "test" accomplish? Then he needs people to go to church and bow to him...to pray to him...(to wind him up) on sundays, and to help him spread the word…but only the one true word (whichever one that actually is supposed to be). I thought he was all powerful…and yet he needs man's attention and man to back him? No religion of any sort, has ever survived in all of history, and all of them have become a mere footnote, the object of scorn and ridicule, though they all have had their day in the sun, and certainly all had their true believers, some of whom built the Great Pyramids of Gizza, others Stonehenge, still others the Parthenon, or the Mayan Pyramids and Cenotes, the Aztec Pyramids, or the high altitude Machu Picchu of the Incas...how about Easter Island…and the list goes on. Over the course of history, many religions have come and gone, but at the time when they were popular, they were also considered to be valid beliefs…a dogma unable to be questioned…and history is rife with their remnants. Look at the classic Greek and Roman deities…or the Norse beliefs…the extremes of the Egyptian pharos…all of which are now relegated to the status of being mere stories...myths. The times change, and the prevalent flavors of religion changes, but who is to say that both Islam and Christianity are forever immune to such a thing happening to them? Just as we now laugh at the fantastic beliefs of the ancients, the current crop of religions will have outlived their usefulness, and be seriously downgraded to a reference in the history books. To true believers, that of course is considered to be heresy, but the reality of it actually is, that religions do come and go, and no matter how strongly you believe, that alone simply is not ever going to make it so. There is absolutely no real evidence of life after death for humans...nor the slightest evidence that there is a god at all. The bible and quoran are full of mythology, and I seriously doubt that 10,000 years from now they will be mankind's "flavor of the week". Very likely there will be yet another religion to take their place, as people seem to require a need for the sense of belonging...the blanket of comfort that religion affords. Not one of them has ever prevailed, and right now christianity has had its' day in the sun, and is in its' descendency…while islam is in the ascendency...so goes life. What do all of man's religions have in common? All of them offered an all powerful divine overseer, and offered the promise of eternal life, and since death is frightening to people…the finality of it all…they had to create a more comfortable alternative. To this day however, not one of them has ever been able to prove that either one actually exists...so it is just all about faith. The biblical doubting Thomas quote, always made me very uncomfortable (since I was in grade school actually): "Jesus said to him, Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed." John 20:8 Having blind faith in anything is absurd, and it defies common sense. We have a brain (a talent), but are not to use that brain, but rather are to blindly follow outdated and essentially irrelevant teachings of a very schizophrenic book, with more inconsistencies than the US tax code. The latest archeological finds have predated the quoran to well before mohammed, which definitely undermines the very foundations of islam. But what happens to that faith, when the belief itself dies...as they certainly all have done since the beginning of time? Faith being a blanket and almost fanatical belief in that which we cannot grasp...because there simply is absolutely nothing remotely logical that the human mind can wrap itself around…nothing that truthfully tells us for certain...that it is really even out there...that any of it exists at all...except in the minds of men. Many of us desperately want it to be so, want there to be more after the scary finality of death, but in truth...wishing it to be so...even following the "rules" in an attempt to make it so...cannot ever certify it actually being so...the issue is always seriously questionable…based on an entirely illogical premise in the first place. Knock out one key cornerstone, and the building tumbles into rubble, which is the entire history of mans religious beliefs...one wreck after another...since time began. Likewise the torture…the pain…the suffering…all of the misery that has been caused by religions over the entire course of human history, is incalculable. Religions are the bane of mankind, and nothing said by any religion, can withstand the scrutiny of honest analysis.

Think About It : If what he says is real, then that means God did not create people, people created (the idea) of God.

MemeMations : I hate religion. I’m tired of people, including my parents, telling me to “find my faith” because god wants me to. Most people only have faith because they were told some magical being in the sky exists, and they believed it, just like they believed Santa Claus exists. Only difference is people realize a big fat man In a big red suit flying with his magic reindeer is really far fetched, but they don’t realize a magical being that created everything and wants you to obey its every command or else it’ll send you to a fiery pit to burn for years upon years is ALSO far fetched. When I was religious, I would ignore things like this. I remember not wanting to believe something, despite all of the evidence, and just deciding not to.I remember liking the way it sounded to go to a good place after I died where I could do whatever I wanted so just deciding to believe THAT. I wish religion as a whole didn’t exist so I didn’t have to go through telling people I’m an atheist and being shunned.

Osamu Yashinobu : God has left the chat 💭

Niki Wonoto : smart, thoughtful, real-honest, & really brave for saying the 'unpopular' truth out loud. i really respect this man a lot.  "Some people seem to mistake Objectivity for Negativity, and wishful-thinking for Positivity." "Sometimes people don't want to hear the truth because they don't want their illusions destroyed." - Friedrich Nietzsche - greetings from Indonesia -

eastlondonhustler : Considering the fact that religion was created by humans and humans have a tendency to lie for their own gains, i highly doubt that there is any connection between religion and a deity, despite the general consensus.

Ajay Verma : Today I came out as an athiest 😭😭😭 I am from a christian family And my father has scolded me horribly. He just give me no chance to explain and gave me two options get out or follow jesus christ. I am very upset, as I am not against my father or family but he don't understand.

Marce SilBe : I like this pastor!! 🤣🤣

TheAudivisioner : Religion The longest running form of mind poison of all time.

loszhor : 4:00 "PRAISE THE SUN!" - George Carlin

chocobonita : ah religion, the bastion of under-educated unintelligent people.

UltraVerse Studios : I know God is not real, but let's imagine that he is real. 1. If God is said to be merciful to all humans living in this Earth (good or bad), why does he sent some of the bad people to eternal torture instead of giving them a chance to redeem themselves? 2. Why did he kill many Innocents? 3. How did he create the universe from nothing? 4. Why does he favor a specific group of humans? 5. Why didn't he realized that sending Satan to Earth is a idiotic and greatest mistake? 6. Why did he say 90% of art, entertainment, games, and music are evil? 7. Where did he, the angels and the demon came from? 8. How did they came to existence? 9. Why did he create the universe? 10. Why won't he show himself? 11. Why does he want people to do what he want them to do? 12. Why doesn't he answers all prayers from all humans? 13. Why didn't he get rid of worldwide issues/situations (poverty, wars, etc)? And finally..... 14. What's the reason for him to act like a tyrant to the souls that return to him? How can we worship this divine being if he isn't as righteous as he wants us to think? He is completely flawed, and considerably worst than any human on Earth or at anytime. He doesn't even explain origins of him, how he got his power, or how he was able to create the universe. He doesn't deserve the respect of his creations, especially since he doesn't respect all of us, or makes the right choices since the beginning of the universe.

jim smith : the catholic church is more corrupt than the mafia and u.s. government put together.they rape children by the 10's of thousands every year. have a great day!!

Awuondo L. : Religion is like an abusive relationship

InformationIsTheEdge : George Carlin IS God! White hair, beard... All that's missing is the flowing robes!

Deeson Jame : Plot Twist: George Carlin is God.

braxous 420 : I worship Weed

Arkd Dee : George Carlin made me an atheist!

Authentik __LOGIIC : The 8k unlikes are triggered Christians 😂😂👌

Jon Maderos : Why don't churches have WiFi? They don't wanna compete with an invisible power that actually works.

Timmy Collins : I completely agree with this guy

BadMoonofMartyr : If this god guy does exist, and jesus did die for our sins than why would we be punished for our sins? That would make Jesus' death completely pointless. And that would make god not only the worst father of the year, but eternity.

Scepticul : I remember when I first saw this video I was not at high school and I hated George Carlin, after I got to high school and I became passionate about physics and I read a lot of books, I got rid of religion and now I'm think of a career in physics.I'm an ex-chiritian thanks to science and I found this video very true and very funny.

SPZ Max : 7,800 triggered Christians need a safe space.

Cloe Jarozenski : If only George were alive today. He would have a *_field day_* with Donald Trump!

Nicco Visconti : Religion...the root of all evil!!

Jared Houdini : See a lot of triggered snowflake Christians in the comment section😂😂

1231莫须有 : Great respect for this guy 👏🏻👏🏻

daydreamerindian : I am Hindu, I am Theist but I totally agree that religions are bullshit simply because even though religions are built around "persons" who has mystical experience but they are built by people who had no idea/experience. For example Bible was not written by Jesus, Quran was heavily modified by ruler to suit their political interests. Same way Many Hindu Scriptures were edited by clergy class known as "brahmins" to suit their selfish motives.

The Mad Pioneer : "but he loves you" is one of the greatest quotes of all time

Paulw Nobles : go George your right anybody that rams religion down a child's throat is guilty of child abuse

Adam Mithrandir : The only person that deserved to be in hell is GOD..

Reason : This made me an atheist.

Greg Kisinger : George Carlin was one of the GREATS!! Regarding religion, it's too bad everyone doesn't watch this video and really consider how goofy religion is and how mindless its followers are. What a shame.

slap chop : I remember when I was religious, a long time ago when I was still young and dumb, I saw this and hated Carlin's guts.  I'm an atheist now and I came back to this video just now - and I'm in awe of how ignorant and blind I was.
