A Prayer From The Church Of Google

Our Search Engine which art in cyberspace,
Google be thy name.
Thy Googlebots come.
Thy algorithm be done on company intranets
as it is in cyberspace.

Give us this day our daily high page rank.
And forgive us our reciprocal links,
As we forgive those that place ahead of us.
And lead us not into the temptation of mirror sites.
But deliver us from link farms.

For thine is the top query, and the zeitgeist
and the highest search engine placement forever!

Check out the proofs that Google is God, not quite Aquinas but not bad.


  • I must admit that I'm more than just a bit disturbed by this view of reality. The "theology" of Jack Chick is less dangerous than this mess.

  • Bullshit. Chick is completely serious; these guys are not.

  • I have to say that I am with the beat doctor on this one.

  • no, chris w comes from the school that says, "liberalism is the ultimate evil of the modern world, even though i like the fact that i have enough to eat and that the water is relatively clean, and that if it's not, i can still buy a filter for it because the free market provides it. but it and google are still eeeeeeeeeeeeeevil."

  • There's nothing like being critical and cowering behind anonymity. Get a life, 'anonymous'.

  • It seems to me that while the "google church's" self understanding as a church isn't serious their attack against believing in a transcendent God is.

  • Maybe, but I doubt it.

  • As an aside from this discussion about the Church of Google... :)

    Hm. You have a point "beatdrp" - I KNOW it's Internet, so all rules are thrown out, but is there not an unstated rule of etiquette that says if you're going to try to encapsulate (correctly or incorrectly) someone else's view of reality in such a personal way, it's polite to identify yourself (as you sterotype them)?

    There's something to be said for putting one's money where one's mouth is, but does a person have to move to a third world country to offer a critique of the Western World's view of the human person and society?

    There's nothing like stereotypes to throw away the possibility of authentic dialogue. This is a good reminder for myself, lest I do the same thing. :)

  • Erin,

    What in the world are you talking about?

    Who's stereotyping? What does putting money anywhere have to do with anything? Who is this Western World you speak of and what is his view of the human person and of society? Who's throwing away the possibility of authentic dialogue?
