George Carlin and religion as the all-time ********

By way of God is for Suckers: There's an mp3 audio clip featuring George Carlin. I don't know. This may be the first time I've heard of this guy. But then again my memory sucks. His stand-up act is simply a riot. He minces no words and gives it straight from the shoulder:
When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest.

You may want to read the script too. But not after you've listened to him deliver it! No substitute for that.

You know what? Supernaturalism is the all-time bullshit.

Oh yeah, George Carlin is one funny stand up comedian. I have one of his DVDs, where he performed in New York and New Jersey. Maybe you've seen him, he played Rufus in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey. He also had a small but very funny role as a hitchhiker in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

Carlin's a comedian from the late 60s on. The "Hippy Dippy Weather Man"? (Who, like the Weathermen activists, tells you "which way the wind blows?") The five words you can't say on television? You really don't know about this stuff?

Man, I'm old. Peace, babies.
