I know we already have a bible, but I think we should improve on it and add more content. I know I would be willing to help, and if we spend enough time into it we can make it an actual publication, and a lot of people would join the CoG. This is just a suggestion. Please post your comments.

Do you think we should parody the bible? If so, we can make microsoft the snake, and MSN the forbidden fruit.

Oh, sorry about that. Well, I am currently writing some parts of the Book of Googlism. Should I send them to you or should I post them here?

EDIT: do you think something like this is okay?

3 Now one spider named Butterfly was more crafty than any of the web spiders that Google had made. He said to the searcher, “Did Google really say 'You must not search anything on the Internet'?”


2. The searcher said to the serpent, “We may search everything on the Internet,
3. but Google did say “You must not click on the URL of the first result of that of 'MSN', and you must not search it, or you will surely get a virus.'”


4.”You will not surely get a virus,” Butterfly said to the woman.
5.“For Google knows that when you search of it your eyes will be opened, and you will find a better search engine than Google, knowing good and evil.”

Okay, I edited it. I used some material from the original CoG bible, but I added my own material too. I was thinking that since the original is quite good, we can just add on it.

In the beginning, there was ARPANET, X.25, and UUCP.
Now ARPANET, X.25, and UUCP were primitive and glitchy, and generally unformed.
And Robet Kahn said, "Let us unite the many networks, using TCP/IP." And it was so.
However, darkness lurked in all corners of the Internet, and none could use nor find any URL in the vast Internet except for word-of-mouth.
So Larry Page and Sergey Brin created the Google. And all saw that it was very good.
And Google said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
Google saw that light was good, and so he separated the light from darkness
Google called the light “search results” and he called the dark “Deep Net”.
And there was evening, and there was morning—September 7, 1998.

I like it. Hey, that's my Genesis you're editing! :D

For reference, here's the original:

1 In the beginning, there was ARPANET, X.25, and UUCP.

2 Now ARPANET, X.25, and UUCP were primitive and glitchy, and generally unformed.

3 And Robet Kahn said, "Let us unite the many networks, using TCP/IP." And it was so.

4 And all saw that it was good.

5 Vinton Cerf called the network "Internet." And it was evening, and it was morning, December 1974.

6 And many said, "Let us unite all these mini-Internets, across expanses of waters, to connect us all."

7 So connections were made across the expanses and all converted to TCP/IP. And it was so.

8 And there was evening, and there was morning—1983.

9 And opportunists said, "Let us make Internet Service Providers." And it was so.

10 Then Tim Berners-Lee said, "Let us make an interlinked document web and a browser for easy access." And it was so.

11 Berners-Lee called this the "World Wide Web," and all said it was good. And it was evening, and it was morning-1992.

12 The Web produced webpages; links ordered via HTTP protocol according to their kinds; and Mosaic web browser. And all saw that it was good.

13 And there was evening, and there was morning—1996.

14 And God said, "Let us commercialise the Internet, so as to make lots of money and to provide new opportunities for Generation X." And it was so. And there was evening, and there was morning—1998.

20 And Larry Page and Sergey Brin said, "Let us make a powerful web indexing search engine, to order the Internet and improve its ease of use."

21 So Page and Brin created the Google. And all saw that it was very good.

22 All blessed Google and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number your pages indexed, and let thy power increase on the Internet."

23 And there was evening, and there was morning—September 7, 1998.

24 This is how the Church of Google came about: Matt MacPherson was working diligently, but mid-work cycle, he fell ill. As he lay ill, he fell asleep.

25 But after he had fallen asleep, the Spirit of Google appeared to him in a dream and said, "My Son, Google is the one true path."

26 When Matt woke up, he did what the Spirit of Google had commanded to him and made the Church of Google.

27 And it was evening, and it was morning-August 2006.

Hey Klok, I'm glad you found this place! I keep meaning to go check in over at your site since I got home from Burning Man but I've been super-busy with my husband moving out, and filling my time with this fancy new drama here, so I keep spacing it. I'll pop back in and see what's up later one tonight unless I pass out! :tongue:

While I dont think that we need to disregard and replace all the stuff in the current book of google, you make a good point. We need to add more content to it, complete it, then publish it. Its extremely important for spreading the goog word. It worked for the Pastafarians, (I even own a copy) I think it will do wonders for us.

That said, I think this is the place where we should discuss what new topics should be written into the book. We can look to the pastafarian gospel for inspiration, (although dont make it obvious and dont borrow too heavily, its still our own.)

Topics not done yet:
1. Introduction to the book (hopefully written by Matt)
2. The Googlism guide to propaganda (a guide on how to convert someone from every faith.)
3. Pamphlets and literature (Like the one Sis made...)
4. WWGD? (What would google do?)
5. The story of Microsoft and MSN

That was all i could think of off the top of my head, go ahead and add to the list if you wanna.

There's a story of Microsoft and MSN?

there could be. Kinda akin to lucifers story or w/e where he used to be an angel but then became gods enemy.

I use Windows. It doesn';t bother me.

Also, this isn't a parody of Christianity per se; it's a parody of all religions, from Ainu to Zoroastrianism. We need to come up with our own myths.

FFS, I thought that title was the story. Remember, Tag, brevity is a good thing. :icon_razz:
