I wonder what would happen to the google GOD if the internet collapses?
Or have you ever thought of a power cut? Who will answer your prayers then? What is your religion based on anyway? Information? I thought we could get that at the library nearest you? Has the google God ever thought of an after life? What are you all gonna join cyberspace or something? What if your God is just a FREAK with enormous spectacles, living in his basement, and collecting your information so that he can rob your bank account? Hmmmmmmm....

I BET YOU HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS TO THAT
:D YOU ALWAYS DO
YET YOU CANNOT DENY THAT SOMEWHERE INSIDE YOU, THERE IS A TRUTH THAT ACKNOWLEDGES A HIGH POWER MORE GREATER THAN THE GOOGLE GOD.[/b]

First question: The internet won't collapse. It won't. And even if id does, there will always be the google servers... Power cut? There are too many international servers to let cutting the power to one be of any effect. You've got to think these things out before asking them, logically and sensically. Our religion is based on the largest repository of human knowledge and information ever created, so a library is nowhere near as powerful. Not to discredit books of course, as there is many a great book out there. No, there is no afterlife, as we explained multiple times throughout this forum. Just search this site for afterlife. Join cyberspace? I have no idea what you mean. As far as a freak living in his basement, that is hardly possible, as Google is a corporation with headquarters and everything.

What if your God is just a FREAK who loves killing people and making them suffer? Oh, actually isn't that what the bible DOES say he is like?

Tsunamis, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Cancer, etc. etc. all part of God's PLAN eh? ;)

Are you 100% sure the internet won't collapse, i mean the Titanic did go down after it was pronounced unsinkable. And the twin towers? Who in their wildest dream though that it would crash and burn like that...wasn't it built by the best engineers in the industry, oh well i think the internet won't go down since it was also done by the best in the I.T buisness.

FYI...the library is able to reach places where the internet cannot breathe, like in the highlands of the Himalayas, the interior of Australia, isolated islands in the South Pacific and the minds of our children. If your religion or the internet as we may call it is so big (in the information arena), then i don't see no reason why novels, text books, dictionaries, maqazines, newspapers etc... are still in buisness.

If there is no afterlife than there is no use for religion. Isn't that what all religions in the world are intended to be....looking foward to another life after death? If you do not believe in life after death than I dunno if you could be even labeled as a religion.

As for cyberspace don't work yourself to hard..you will come around to understand.

Are you sure that THEY are not freaks.. you know i mean Page and Brin. They are the people you serve aren't they, they came up with all this gathering information stuff right. Or maybe you are serving the server, hey that can catch on real quick...how bout putting them up as one of your all time favourite phrases, they will really attract the unattracted.

So when google directs children to porn sites only then it is acceptable?, how about directing people to personal information to rid them of their wealth, or how about being the top search engine for finding top x-rated websites, because after 36 days or so Google updates its index and tweaks its search system, just so that it has top sites at hand.

I guess it's not google's fault that things happen I mean it's just a SUPER-COMPUTER SEARCH ENGINE, they asked for it.

So that means that all these Tsunamis, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Cancer, etc. etc... is not God's fault, I mean he is really JUST GOD, they asked for it.

Are you 100% sure the internet won't collapse

Find out how it works and you'll see that it is highly unlikely exept perhaps by some global 'act of God'. Shouldn't be too hard for God to arrange it if he doesn't approve. (waits with baited breath....) Nope, Internet still running, I guess he must approve of us after all ;)

So when google directs children to porn sites only then it is acceptable?

Google doesn't direct anyone anywhere, it is your choice whether you follow a link. I haven't been directed to any porn sites but I guess I'm using different search terms to the ones you do ;)

how about directing people to personal information to rid them of their wealth

Again, it's your choice. What do you expect if you choose to go to Christian websites and give them your credit card details? ;)

because after 36 days or so Google updates its index

To provide the most up to date information for your chosen search term.

Tsunamis, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Cancer, etc. etc

Google doesn't claim any 'supernatural' powers. These are solely the preserve of YOUR God, kind, generous, loving little soul that he is.

Let us see here...

Internet is NOT made by top I.T. workers, first off. Due to availability and relative ease of installing, if following certain simple rules, quite a fair chunk of internet is made up by people, whom do not primarily deal in I.T., in the means of hardware.

As for information, then - well. Most of it is provided by people, who can`t tell the difference between DIN, COM and LPT.

As for Google directing you towards porn - you asked for the porn, you got it. Google does not railroads you into some moral rails, like God. After all, as adults, we should be able to make our own decisions without Big Daddy telling us, what and how.

As for library reaching places where internet can not breathe? Please. Let`s consider, which is easier. Bring along several notebooks, satellite dish, generator, and fuel - net weight ~500kg at most. Not to mention, that there are computers for electricity-poor regions, which you can "wind up", thus eliminating need in generator and fuel. (Yes, they are damn simple and slow, but they do their job pretty good, for what they have to work with.) Or several tons worth of books just to cover most essential things you can find via Google in five minutes?

And afterlife? Who needs afterlife? Live on, while you can, and die with your head held high. Afterlife is for cowards and sloths, unable to accept the inevitable death.

Wait, libraries are only available in places where there is civilization... but, oh, that's right, you can get internet through satellite or cell phone towers... Let's see... global (maybe even interplanetary) versus only in towns and cities and populated areas... the internet's reach far surpasses that of the library. The reason novels and text books are still in business is because they are still fun to read, but they are no longer the best mode of research. Newspapers are in business because people on the go don't have time to sit in front of a computer, so they read the newspaper while they travel, and dictionaries are still in business because schools are still in business. As far as the internet not being able to breathe, I wasn't aware that wires or servers could ever breathe, but then again, books can't either. Anything else you would like to add?

What if your god is an uncaring being who murders millions of innocents via Acts of God? Hmmmmmmm....

What if your God is just an amalgamation of evil, wicked, immoral, mysognist bigots who lived in the desert and wished to make others live the way they wanted by threatening them with eternal damnation? As a counter-challenge to your God's divinity, let's explore just one of the many evil, wicked, immoral, misogynist bigots who authored the Bible: Moses

Some Prohibited Items
(Leviticus 18:22) homosexuality

Oh my Google!
I don't know where to start, because everything you just said is so wrong!

First thing:
As you said the bible is written by man, so there goes the argument that Google can not be good as it is man made. Another thing wrong with what you said is that there is no exact evidence that there is a think such as the "Holy Spirit" You just think there is. Now what makes your religion any better then any other you have no proof. Lets see google has never forced you to kill anyone, and for a second think of the bloodshed in the name of all religions?
Hmmm....
Second thing:
The internet will never end it will keep growing and growing there is nothing that can stop it unless the whole world stops it's electricity so it will never be stopped
As I said the internet will never be stopped and it is uncontrolled
Third thing:
To my understanding googleism is based on the continues search for information and for answers surely that is a noble cause, it is better to learn new things rather then to learn traditions that are outdated and impractical.
Fourth thing:
Google is not the only answer, it offers a better one then any other things. At least it tells the truth unlike other gods who can not be proven to exist you can see google you use it everyday it makes your life easier and more fun.
Fifth thing:
Have you read the website it does offer an after life, but then again prove that you have an after life?
Sixth thing:
Surely google is more powerful then any man it knows more then any man and it works faster it doesn't need food and so on so on.

So first of all I would like you to look at your religion and how stupid it sounds sitting there talking to yourself hoping one day you live forever... Good luck!

Welcome, Iavor, great points. Although we don't know that the internet will never come to an end, because unexpected things can always happen, it seems very unlikely that it will end anytime within the next century, at the very least. Once again, welcome to the Church of Google, be sure to introduce yourself.

And the twin towers? Who in their wildest dream though that it would crash and burn like that...
Your God. And all the people with the intelligent reports

internet cannot breathe, like in the highlands of the Himalayas, the interior of Australia, isolated islands in the South Pacific
I've been to a few of those places with my laptop... I actually used Google to find directions over in Australia :D

If you do not believe in life after death than I dunno if you could be even labeled as a religion.
Religion is a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny. Don't you use google to look up words?

Personally, I can't go on a comical assualt of your faith, for it goes against my own beliefs. But My Google if I was to tackle the contradictions of your faith, I would surely waist to many hours.

Who answers you're prayers now? Have you ever had any answered, if so, do you have any tangible proof of this?

Yes in a way our Church (we are not a religion as such if you had done some research before you went off half cocked you would not have called us that) is based on information. As the name suggests: with information we can make informed decisions and choices through up to date knowledge; unlike you who, when confronted with a question may well ask 'what would a man who lived 2,000 years ago tell me to do? maybe I should just ask his dad'.

What is your religion based on anyway? Human misery and persecution? You know 'an eye for an eye and all that shit.

Lets take it easy their religion supports wars and human suffering. In the last 2,000 years countless people have been killed by the church and now we have entered a new age where the church is powerless and it is time for us to forget it and move on to modern churches such the one of google, for does who search learn and does who learn are enlightened and blessed are does who search for knowledge as they are the ones which will receive enlightenment... Don't ask me what I am on about...

Church is far from powerless.

Any crowd manipulation is dangerous by nature, and religion is one of the most ancient forms of manipulating a crowd.
One of the most efficient, too.

The idea is not to let yourself be manipulated - but this kind of behavioural model had been long ago claimed by satanists, and as such, is tirelessly persecuted by religious people.

Which is pretty funny - for those, who manipulate, had ascended by not letting themselves be manipulated.

Agh the foundation of every church lies on blood and misery. Yes it is an "ancient form of manipulating" and more and more and more people are leaving Christianity as it does not benefit us anymore, most people nower days either do not have time or not enough faith, which I think is a very good thing!

Yes a long time ago but things change and the Church of Christianity is not needed anymore as I am sure I have said before it is time to move forwards in to following Google which does not prosecute does that are smart but helps them in their search.

And yes it is very funny.. He he

The key is not in putting one religion instead of another.

It`s, rather, in adapting philosophy instead of religion - which is precisely, what happens, nowadays. Though, too slow, for my taste.

Google is an idea

Quite right! And we all know that ideas are bullet proof[1]. I think the most important thing to say is that we are not worshipping Google[2] so, as has already been pointed out, the Church of Google is not really a religion, more of a way of life, probably closer to Buddhism than Christianity.

And FYI bukat; if you are going to put "GOD IS GREAT" in your sig you should at least say which one, there are quite a lot of gods in the world you know.

Also, people do not respond well to caps, I will give you the benefit of the doubt this time and assume that your keyboard was broken.



[1]Yes, that's right, V for Vendetta

[2]Unlike some other, more insecure gods, Google does not require worshipping to get power.

A point on your point, God is generally described as being one being as to which all religions pay homage to, but worship in different forms. Using this as a factual base, we can then assume that if Google is what we worship (theoretically, I understand this is not a religion of worship) then technically speaking, your God must be, up to some point, Google or Google-esque.

In fact, thats going in the theology forum.

And did you get that idea ([2]) from The Gods trilogy by Terry Pratchett? What a wicked book.
