Google depends on internet, without that it wouldn't even exist. If somehow internet crushed google will crush to. Google is created by man, and it can be controlled by man. Google have some bugs. Google is owned by some1. Few things that proves google can't be what you are calling him. I'm new here, sry if I miss something about this.. :)

Yes....
without that it wouldn't even exist.
True. Your point?
If somehow internet crushed google will crush to.
Keywords: "If somehow."

Google has every chance of going bust. But right now, it is the closest thing to a scientifically verifiable deity.
Google is created by man
As if every other "god" wasn't?
and it can be controlled by man. Google have some bugs. Google is owned by some1. Few things that proves google can't be what you are calling him.
These things do not invalidate the fact that Google is the closest thing to a scientifically verifiable diety.

We do not think Google is a god. We think Google is the closest thing to a god.

Yes, welcome! Sorry about the current state of the forum, we just had a little (ahem) trouble.

A "little trouble"?

Your entire forum is a shambles and it's being run by out-of-control mods with no experience and an oversized admin team that can't agree among themselves...

...and won't listen to anyone who chimes in trying to make it BETTER.

This place could be an internet giant, but instead it's an internet fetal alcohol syndrome baby.

Yes, I realize that. But right now the biggest problem is that the head owner, Matt, is gone from the site. No matter what you may say about moderation, overall, it is his site, and his word is infallible law.

In his absence:
1) we cannot update the main site
2) we cannot publish a newsletter
3) we cannot significantly update the forum
etc.

We need him back. We need the FTP password.

I'm pretty sure they left because of the active posters of the last 48 hours.

Well, that's one way to look at it.

The other way is they left for the same reason the newer posters were giving you a bunch of crap.

But that would mean you might share some of the responsibility, so it's obviously not true.

While it's true that scientific proof of any deity is lacking, using that as a main argument is a bit trite, I think. I'm confused on how exactly it means that Google is the next best thing. :icon_question: I guess I need to read more about it.

I'm new here too. I think it means that Google is the largest and most popular way to learn from the World Wide Web, the repository of the worlds knowledge. It's also unbiased, which is exactly what makes it popular. When you do a Google search, your dipping into all the worlds knowledge, as it's uploaded and having presented to you fairly. Is that the same thing as praying? No, I think it's better. Instead of asking yourself a question and having it answered by yourself by way tricking yourself. Now you can ask everyone else, and get a clear answer. So if you need a God (or Goddess), Google's a good choice.

By the By . . . I've been actively posting for about the last 48 hours, and I still don't have a clue why everyone is upset. It seems like I missed a big fight ... and I'm sorry it happened. One thing I do know is the only way to recover is to stop fighting, and get back to talking. Or at least it's all I can do.:)

I'll accept that, I suppose. It just seems so forced--if you need a god, Google is there. But by that logic, couldn't I just as easily worship the yellow pages? Or an encyclopedia? Or a rock? Then again, a rock wouldn't give me much feedback. Regardless, I don't know that I would consider Google to be unbiased. It's a search engine, which by design orders results by relevance and popularity. It is very possible to manipulate things and make any given site appear to be more popular than it is in order to move it up the list, thereby pushing more relevant results down. Google also has sponsored links, no? ;) Just a thought.

Google does have sponsored links, but they go through great effort to give us an organic search that hasn't been tampered with by humans. Yes you can get yourself up there by spamming people to boost your popularity, but it's a lot harder to do than just advertise with the search engines parent company. Other search engines don't make that distinction.

Your right, worshiping Google is like worshiping an encyclopedia, an encyclopedia that is as close to perfect as anything else. It's intuative to know the limits of the print encyclopedia's you used when you were a kid. Google searches the whole web, or at least the surface web. Everything is your encyclopedia.

But the organic search uses an algorithm to search the whole web, which is a set of all, or at least most, of all human made content. Humans are taken out of the ranking. That's why I think it's beautiful.

Many of us here would argue that man made YHWH as well. And Eris, and Bob.

I don't consider myself an insurgent. I know you are, but I'm not with you there Billy. Just because I read the Principia a year a go doesn't mean I want to see a civil war over the mods moving a couple of threads.

It's possible that some of the mods aren't familiar with the way Discordians talk. So get the level of philosophical discussion to a point were they can understand. Don't cause an all out scism.

It is the Mods job to ban people who are causing a disruption, and they might have been a little heavy handed this time, but it looked like they're hand was forced this time.

Make no mistake about it, I like to talk about Eris, the idea. But when you guys want to form a troll army I AM NOT LEGION and do not count me in your ranks.

If you wanted to get some kids set free from a Scientology camp in Florida or something, let me know and I'll want to help. Until then, you do your thing, and I'll do mine.

I only mentioned it, because Billies "WE ARE LEGION" language reminded me about Anon. and their beef with Scientology. So I made the connection and said, I'll join a rag tag group of angry internet kids if it's for a good cause . . . if it's for a good cause. That's all. My beef is with cults, not states.

A Pooka (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pooka) is a mythical creature that is mischevious but benign. Often found in the company of Crackpots, Rumpots . . . and how do you do Mr. Wilson?

See the movie Harvey (http://www.amazon.com/Harvey-James-Stewart/dp/B0000549B0/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1221064678&sr=8-1), it explains everything.
