The Genius of Carlin

George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American stand-up comediansocial criticsatiristactor and writer/author, who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums.

George Carlin was noted for his black humor as well as his thoughts on politics, the English languagepsychologyreligion, and various taboo subjects.

Although raised in the Roman Catholic faith,  religion, God, and particularly religious adherents were frequent subjects of criticism in Carlin’s routines. He mocked the traditional swearing on the Bible as “bullshit”, “make believe”, and “kids’ stuff”. Carlin also joked in his second book, Brain Droppings, that he worshipped the Sun, one reason being that he could see it.

Although George Carlin never claimed to be a Pantheist, some of his best stand-up had many of the shared ideals of Pantheism.  His observations were timeless, insightful, and thought provoking.
