You do not play with the name of God: He [George Carlin] callanged God to strike him down,and He did. Do not play with serious things.

Strike him down? He is 70 years old and had heart problems for a while now and has been telling jokes about religion for a while too. It 's obvious God didn't do anything and if he did, then he doesn't sound so powerful if it takes him this long to strike someone.

"He [George Carlin] callanged God to strike him down,and He did."

I guess the years of daily coke use, a separate addiction to alcohol and painkillers in his later years, multiple heart attacks, heart failure, 30 years of non stop touring, and the fact that he was 71 years old had nothing to do with it?

So, if I challenge Zeus to strike me down and die of a heart attack 20 years later does that mean Zeus killed me?

yes he CHALLENGED god several times, god just waited till
carlin was in his 70's for the aforementioned striking? god is a procrastinator?

I guess they think George entered this world as a 70 year old man, and only a little bit before his death.

Yes... God will smite thee, and by smite thee, he'll just wait around until you die. After all the ravages of old age will render you a far worse punishment than he ever could. What a magnificent god you have there.

You take all of Christian history and pull the wisest, most moral and best from it all,,, you're still nowhere near what George Carlin was.

This god must be pretty inept. He was a 70 years old guy. This "God" wasn't able to strike him down before?

As Carlin said, "If this is the best God can do, I'm not impressed."

He sure took his sweet damn time doing it, though...

"You do not play with the name of God: He [George Carlin] callanged God to strike him down,and He did. Do not play with serious things"

'God' in reverse is Dog. Thus you worship a deity that can lick it's own bollocks.

Now, I challenge your 'God' to strike me down in the next minute after I submit this comment - if he has the cojones to smite someone who is superior to him (i.e. yours truly), that is.

6/8/2010 11:12:15 AM


Well, time's up. (*looks at self*)

...nope, still alive. From this, we can only conclude one thing (check one):

[ ] Your 'God' is a little whiny, bollock-licking little wussy pup of a deity who couldn't smite a flea on him. And is clearly inferior to me.

[ ] I'm still alive & not smited in the slightest, because your so-called 'God' doesn't exist.

Choose wisely.

Seconded - fuck you Dog, come and get me.

6/8/2010 11:17:08 AM


Wow, if it took your god that long to smite George Carlin, then your god is fuckin weak. He might as well have just waited around for him to die of old age... oh wait.

(Woah shit, I realized I responded to this one a while ago and forgot. Does that ever happen to you guys on this forum?)

6/8/2010 11:46:24 AM


(watches Carlin in YouTube video "Religion is Bullshit")
Yeah, God struck him down. Eventually. He must have had some better things to do. Like boffing that hot angel, or, or, or... I'm sorry I can't think of anything God has actually done.

6/8/2010 11:54:13 AM


Carlin said that a long time ago.
Why did it take so many years for God to strike
him down?
Does God only work on a
"first come first served" basis?

6/8/2010 2:29:41 PM


Oh my, I thought he had heart problems and died of a heart attack.

But obviously this must be wrong, since you insist that he got struck by lightning on stage in the 70s ...

Oh, that didn't happen? Well what freakin' surprise.

Lady Evil

If I remember the bit correctly, he asked God to strike the audience down. Of course, it didn't happen.

6/18/2012 3:22:14 PM


Your god is a sadistic sociopath utterly unworthy of worship.

Carlin "challanged" God for years and years, but God waited until Carlin was 71 and gave him heart failure.

10/3/2013 12:06:45 AM


God exists because George Carlin was not immortal, one of the strongest arguments for theism.

10/3/2013 2:51:37 AM

He is 70 years old.

That's God for you, he keeps his resentment simmering away, lulling you into a false sense of security, then, 45 years later, BAM!, he kills you with a totally untraceable natural process.

3/6/2015 9:30:20 PM


"He's with God now"
"He was an Atheist"
"God struck him down and cast him to hell"
"Don't you ever get tired of being a sanctimonious Hypocrite?"
"No, I'm a Christian, I'm better than y'all"
