Is Google God?

Thanks to a post from Gord Hotchkiss recently, I have just become aware of  TheChurchOfGoogle.org.  Well, ummm, hmmmm, where to start?   I must say the Hate Mail section is highly entertaining and makes it obvious that some people feel very threatened by this concept.  Especially when you read the Commandments, which make it clear to me that this site was built for fun.

I do find that the arguments they put forth very interesting and well thought out:

·     Google is the closest thing to an omniscient entity in existence, which can be scientifically verified
·     Google is everywhere at once
·     Google answers prayers
·     Google is potentially immortal
·     Google is infinite
·     Google remembers all
¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬† Google can “do no evil”
¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬† “Google” is searched for more than “God,” “Jesus,” “Allah,” “Buddha,” “Christianity,” Islam,” “Buddhism” and “Judaism” combined!
¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬† Evidence of Google’s existence is abundant.

The original Search Insider article, does do a good job of looping this all back into a more realistic mindset.
