Carlin makes the typical confusion between atheism and agnosticism.

An atheist has indeed a rich belief system:
1) he believes that God does not exist (unlike an agnostic who does not
believe that God exists: that makes a huge difference)
2) he generally believes in a material or Aristotelian Universe
(despite its contradiction with comp, or with QM, or with some
physically reproducible facts, and despite any proof or argument beyond
the Aristotelian Matter reification.)
