Re: George Carlin writes....

Those are wonderful sentiments - but George Carlin did not write them. It's a rumor. Here's the truth:

This has been circulating on the Internet for quite a while...long before September 11, and is not from George Carlin.

Those who know George Carlin's views would immediately know that the comments in "The Paradox of Our Time" do not match those of Carlin.

On his website at he denies authorship and criticizes the piece.

The rumor that these words were spoken on the occasion of the death of his wife are a recent addition to the eRumor, which began circulating about 1999.

There are many websites that quote from this now classic eRumor and identify it as having been written by Jeff Dickson in 1998.

It was authored by a minister and former pastor of Overlake Christian Church in Redmond, Washington.

In a response to an inquiry by, Dr. Moorehead said he wrote it in 1990.

It was later published in 1995 in his book WORDS APTLY SPOKEN.

But again: A very nice read no matter who wrote it.
