George Carlin was an atheist before he died. He didn’t believe in God.

“No. No, there’s no God, but there might be some sort of an organizing intelligence, and I think to understand it is way beyond our ability. It’s certainly not a judgmental entity. It’s certainly not paternalistic and all these qualities that have been attributed to God”, Carlin once stated.

George gave up worshipping God at a fairly early stage, and later in his life he decided that he would start worshipping Joe Pesci, because Joe Pesci looked like a guy who’d get things done.

Was George Carlin In The Military?
Carlin was trained as a radar technician, and was stationed in Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier City, Louisiana.

Looking back on his service, Carlin was proud to have been generally discharged instead of dishonorably discharged. He was deemed an unproductive Airman and court martialed three times.

Carlin was born in Manhattan to secretary Mary and The Sun advertising manager Patrick John Carlin, who in 1935 won the Mahogany Gavel Award from over 800 other public speakers at the Dale Carnegie Public Speaking Institute, and who died in December 1945, when George Carlin was only eight years old.
