The wisdom of George Carlin

Here's what the brilliant (arguably the best ever) comedian, George Carlin says about 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."

I am not saying I completely agree, since I tend to force myself to be a bit more positive about the world in general. But I can certainly see the argument from his point of view. It seems like a far, far more logical way of reasoning that just blindly harping without any decent proof whatsoever that there is a supreme being.
