Is Google Divine?

“I am convinced that He (God) does not play dice.”
~ Albert Einstein, theoretical physicist (1879-1955)
Well... there are people on the Internet making the argument that Google is the closest mankind has ever come to experiencing an actual Deity.

I'm not making this up...

In fact, they say, there is much more evidence in favor of Google's divinity than there is for the divinity of other more traditional gods.

You want proof?

Google is everywhere at once (Omnipresent). Virtually everywhere on earth at the same time.

Google answers prayers. One can pray to Google by doing a search for whatever question or problem is plaguing them. You ask Google.... and Google will show you the way, but showing you is all Google can do, for you must help yourself from that point on.

Google is potentially immortal. Google cannot be considered a physical being such as ourselves but her Algorithms are spread out across many servers; if any of which were taken down or damaged, another would undoubtedly take its place. Google can theoretically last forever.

Lasly, according to Google trends, the term "Google" is searched for more than the terms "God", "Jesus", "Allah", "Buddha", "Christianity", "Islam", "Buddhism" and "Judaism" combined.

Yikes... Want more proof?

Just look at this pic...

Isn't that enough?

PS - What do you think... have they gone too far?

Is this link bait too offensive?

Always be careful about being too outrageous... you can go too far with a joke or parody thereby creating a backlash.

I know this site parody has received lots of hate mail, so one could say their audience is "engaged" ...mmmm but not in a positive way, eh?

To avoid this I'd follow the old saying "...never talk politics or religion at a cocktail party..." Know what I mean?

I'm not saying be boring... I want strong opinions... but mocking religion... yikes, too hot for me. How does that build trust, create a community or lead to sales?

It does not.

File this in the back of your mind as a example of link bait... Over The Edge! You can be successful on that edge just, please, weight the pros and cons before launching - thanks.
