Default Wikipedia

I have first learned about the belief that Google is the closest only provable concept in the universe that comes close to being god from wikipedia

and later after some searching i found the church


however wikipedia does not have an article about our beloved church and only refers to it under the Googlism article

Quote:
Originally Said by Wikipedia
Googlism as a religion

Googlism is also a term related to the Church of Google, a parody religion founded by Matt MacPherson in August of 2006. Followers believe the search engine Google is the closest humankind has ever come to directly experiencing a Deity, as typically defined. Supernatural deities are rejected on the notion they are inherently unprovable. Thus, Googlists believe the search engine Google should rightfully be given the title of "God", as it exhibits a great many of the characteristics traditionally associated with Deities.

If I can operate Google, I can find anything... Google, combined with Wi-Fi, is a little bit like God. God is wireless, God is everywhere and God sees and knows everything. Throughout history, people connected to God without wires. Now, for many questions in the world, you ask Google, and increasingly, you can do it without wires, too. — Alan Cohen, V.P. of Airespace, a new Wi-Fi provider, New York Times, 6/29/03
Googlism as a main topic being a web-application which queries text in Google, and displays the multiple ways in which the term is used among the results.



I think that our community that has grown considerably can have it's own Wikipedia article (I my self do not feel that i am up to the task, most of my wikipedia articles were rejected because they where not up to standard (and one bogus claim of copyright violation)) but perhaps one of the ministers or some other devout can spread the word by posting in an article

I myself will gladly (i have already begun) will insert "The Church of Google" links on wikipedia articles.

what do you all think?

If i remember correctly, then someone already posted an article to Wikipedia about us, but the cancelled it because they think of us as a joke.

Perhaps their minds have changed..

I'm not up to the task either, but i think that an article about us would be asskickin'!

I agree with Alice everyone add to it as you see necessary, originally we had one but Wiki deleted it two days in a row because it was considered spam or something. I'm going to read through the guidelines and find a way to make it stay.

Make sure that the guidelines on these pages are followed:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped...lity_%28web%29

I believe that I can get us some sources as well.

Sorry about the triple post but I found some resources that might be of use and I wanted them to be separate:

Good idea. Maybe we should gradually refer to all those sources in Wiki.

This may be off topic, But isn't Wiki alot like jesus, full of information, easily reached through god, and is corruptable by man?

I wish.


I`m clawing and biting and grabbing at straws to keep the article, but it seems, that they won`t let it be on Wiki.

To tell the truth, I`m beginning to think, that it`s pretty much futile to try and get on wiki right now. Of course, I`m trying to get them to at least merge the article into some general list of small religions, or mention it in agnosticism, or something, but... It looks pretty bleak, so far.


Probably, I`d suggest to start our own wiki, and get into the business this way, but... There are two issues.

1) What to write? To add on a new wiki, we need a pretty general topic to explore, and just googlism will not cut it. too sparse. We`ll get laughed off the net for THAT kind of wiki.

2) Who`d contribute? Of course, I would, but if I`ll write whole wiki by myself, it won`t be much of a wiki anymore, would it?
