Quotes from George Carlin



Brain Droppings

"I've begun worshipping the sun for a number of reasons.  First of all, unlike some other gods I could mention, I can see the sun.  It's there for me every day.  And the things it brings me are quite apparent all the time:  heat, light, food, a lovely day.  There's no mystery, no one asks for money, I don't have to dress up, and there's no boring pageantry.  And interestingly enough, I have found that the prayers I offer to the sun and the prayers I formerly offered to "God" are all answered at about the same 50-percent rate."

"I have as much authority as the pope, I just don't have as many people who believe it."

"Jesus was a cross dresser"

"I finally accepted Jesus. not as my personal savior, but as a man I intend to borrow money from."

"Instead of school busing and prayer in schools, which are both controversial, why not a joint solution?  Prayer in buses.  Just drive these kids around all day and let them pray their fuckn´ empty little heads off."

"Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it, religion has actually convinced people that there's an INVISIBLE MAN...LIVING IN THE SKY...who watches every thing you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten special things that he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish where he will send to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry for ever and ever ´til the end of time...but he loves you."

"We created god in our own image and likeness!"

"I credit that eight years of grammar school with nourishing me in a direction where I could trust myself and trust my instincts.  They gave me the tools to reject my faith.  They taught me to question and think for myself and to believe in my instincts to such an extent that I just said, ´This is a wonderful fairy tale they have going here, but it's not for me.´"

"If churches want to play the game of politics, let them pay admission like everyone else"

"I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death."

"Religion convinced the world that there's an invisible man in the sky who watches everything you do.  And there's 10 things he doesn't want you to do or else you'll to to a burning place with a lake of fire until the end of eternity.  But he loves you!  ...And he needs money!  He's all powerful, but he can't handle money!"

"When it comes to BULLSHIT...BIG-TIME, MAJOR LEAGUE BULLSHIT... you have to stand IN AWE, IN AWE of the all time champion of  false promises and exaggerated claims, religion."

"I want you to know, when it comes to believing in god- I really tried. I really really tried. I tried to believe that there is a god who created each one of us in his own image and likeness, loves us very much and keeps a close eye on things. I really tried to believe that, but I gotta tell you, the longer you live, the more you look around, the more you realize...something is FUCKED-UP. Something is WRONG here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is NOT good work. If this is the best god can do, I am NOT impressed. Results like these do not belong on the resume of a supreme being. This is the kind of shit you'd expect from an office temp with a bad attitude. And just between you and me, in any decently run universe, this guy would have been out on his all-powerful-ass a long time ago."

Trillions and trillions of prayers every day asking and begging and pleading for favors. ´Do this´ ´Gimme that´ ´I want a new car´ ´I want a better job´. And most of this praying takes place on Sunday.  And I say fine, pray for anything you want.  Pray for anything.  But...what about the divine plan? Remember that? The divine plan. Long time ago god made a divine plan.  Gave it a lot of thought. Decided it was a good plan. Put it into practice.  And for billion and billions of years the divine plan has been doing just fine. Now you come along and pray for something. Well, suppose the thing you want
 isn't in god's divine plan.  What do you want him to do?  Change his plan? Just for you? Doesn't it seem a little arrogant? It's a divine plan. What's the use of being god if every run-down schmuck with a two dollar prayer book
 can come along and fuck up your plan?  And here's something else, another problem you might have; suppose your prayers aren't answered. What do you say? ´Well it's god's will. God's will be done.´ Fine, but if it gods will and he's going to do whatever he wants to anyway; why the fuck bother praying in the first place? Seems like a big waste of time to me. Couldn't you just skip the praying part and get right to his will?"

"Religion is sort of like a lift in your shoes. If it makes you feel better, fine. Just don't ask me to wear your shoes."

"Here's another question I've been pondering- What is all this shit about Angels? Have you herd this? 3 out of 4 people believe in Angels.  Are you FUCKING STUPID? Has everybody lost their mind? You know what I think it is?
 I think it's a massive, collective, psychotic chemical flashback for all the drugs smoked, swallowed, shot, and absorbed rectally by all Americans from 1960 to 1990. 30 years of street drugs will get you some fucking Angels my friend!
 What about Goblins, huh? Doesn't anybody believe in Goblins? You never hear about this.. Except on Halloween and then it's all negative shit. And what about Zombies? You never hear from Zombies! That's the trouble with Zombies, they're unreliable! I say if you're going to go for the Angel bullshit you might as well go for the Zombie package as well.."
