    It's tied with the ten commandments then.

    GEORGE CARLIN ON THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
    from "Complaints and Grievances" (HBO special)

    Here is my problem with the ten commandments- why exactly are there 10?

    You simply do not need ten. The list of ten commandments was artificially and deliberately inflated to get it up to ten. Here's what happened:

    About 5,000 years ago a bunch of religious and political hustlers got together to try to figure out how to control people and keep them in line. They knew people were basically stupid and would believe anything they were told, so they announced that God had given them some commandments, up on a mountain, when no one was around. <snip> GEORGE CARLIN ON THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
