It is not offensive -- it is called challenging the "facts"...

Offensive is to go to the UN with the PPT presentations and then destroy the country against the UN and SC approvals and kill thousands of innicent...

Offensive is to raise level of threat every time it fits personal agenda to control the masses

Offensive is for 8 years to do nothing for the future of my kids...

Offensive is to (allow) raise gas prices 300% in 7 years giving us false reasons...

Anytime you have the nutcase George Carlin speaking about religion, you have an extremely offensive piece of work. The third segment about the Federal Reserve is the only part worth considering, and it has been better done in other presentations.

I could live without the personal attack language calling him nutcase. That is difficult to prove unless we are talking about Brittney Spears or something. However, that language does seem to draw a reaction.

Let's just leave it on the point that "When George Carlin speaks about religion, it is extremely offensive." This zeitgeist thing loses a potential audience by being so offensive to those who might otherwise accept some of it.

It's been awhile since I watched it (several months ago). The first segment was very objectionable, especially when Carlin spoke. The 2nd and 3rd segments were more like typical conspiracy theory stuff. Entertaining, but not believable in the conclusions they try to draw the audience to believe. The third segment is really the only part that goes beyond a curiosity.

If you are not offended by George Carlin's words in this piece then you serve a very different master than I.

Religious are used to NOT being questioned and mocked. Being a person of faith somehow gets you a free pass. I call BS.

We live in a physical, real world governed by the laws of the Universe that are best explained by science.

We record videos on our cell phones and sip champagne 8 miles above earth going twice the speed of sound.

Religious fundamentalist like scotty are offended when being mocked because deep down they know how bizarre their claim is. When debating a religious person I will eventually get a response that goes like this:

You can call me stupid all you want, but youll have to answer to a higher power, and Ill prey for your soul.

I NEVER called anyone stupid. Well, maybe I have, but certainly not for being religious.

They feel stupid because they are indoctrinated to defend a ridiculous, morally outdated, cruel, make believe, fairy tale!!!

Id be pissed too!!!

People like you deserve great admiration for overcoming childhood indoctrination.

It is not easy to give up something you hold dear in order to face the truth. Many scientists have fallen victim to this. Nursing their pet projects into bizarre-world, despite the contrary evidence.


I’ve been known to do the same. The antidote I use is:

Lets find WHAT’S right, not WHO’S right.
