This is pretty much ignoring the fact that George Carlin didn't believe in a God - period. Didn't matter who's God it was, he just didn't believe in one. Therefore, he did not believe any of the religions were credible.

Anybody saying this kind of stuff about George Carlin obviously doesn't know much about the man.
As George would say himself "I bet he's smiling down on us now" NO you dummy, he's screaming up at us in extreme agony.

However, as he grew older (much older), his caustic observations sounded like nothing so much as the malcontent rants of an angry old man. In the last decade, watching Carlin's snarling cable specials, I felt embarrassed for him -- he wasn't merely out of sync with the times, he was attacking his audience. The response, I couldn't help but notice, comprised of nervous chuckles and dubious murmurs rather than the gales of laughter Carlin evoked during his heyday.
In short, I think George Carlin overstayed his welcome. Too bad he didn't take Robert Klein with him.
