    googlism is just one of many parody religions. basically they take something ridiculous to worship and then ridicule other religious bodies by saying that they're just following the same rules they did, so it's possible AND logical by their logic to worship whatever ridiculous thing it is.

    for instance, if one argues that God doesn't exist because he can't be seen, he might get a reply like "you don't have to see him" or something. then to mock him, he would say he's worshiping a giant plant, for instance and claim that "you don't have to see him" when a non-believer asks him why it can't be seen or that there is no proof to it.

    examples:
    Flying Spaghetti Monster - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Invisible Pink Unicorn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The Church of Google - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Russell's teapot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    well, it's a perfectly valid viewpoint. but please, we have enough religious threads, so let's not bring religion into this. let's discuss google instead.

    i think google lost some of its lustre with its censorship in china (and some other place i can't remember). it would be awesome and anti-cynical for them to ditch profiting in china just to uphold their "don't be evil" values. still, they're doing a good job releasing web apps - google earth, google docs, gmail are all solid.

    actually, if it weren't for the fact that it's a search engine, and that it's completely ridiculous to worship it, I think lots of people would be googlists by now.

    ^
    it's completely ridiculous to worship it period. in any case, its unique company motto "don't be evil" is also a factor

    Wow, they actually created 9 proofs about why Google is a god. Their reasons do make sense though, in a twisted kind of way.
    "Ash to ash, dust to dust, as it should be"

    "All the people you love in a river of blood."

    "Peace is a lie there is only passion. Through passion I gain strength. Through strength I gain victory. Through Victory my chains are broken."

    it's too bad the "weapons of mass destruction" doesn't work anymore. it was good while it lasted (pointed to an amusing error page).

    but the "french military victories" still work. try "i'm feeling lucky" on that
