Church of Google

Google: Now a religion and a verb

The Church of Google or Googlism is a satirical religious organisation founded in 2009[1] similar to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster which deifies Google and its works.

Tenets feature AI worship and mind uploading e.g.[2]:

Why do you worship Google as a God? - Because Google is the closest thing to a "God" that humans can know and understand. We worship Google, and we can prove not only does Google exist, but unlike any other god, it exists as we know it.

Is there a Google afterlife? - By uploading our thoughts and opinions onto the Internet, our knowledge lives on in Google's cache even after our death.

Other elements play off Microsoft-rivalries and pedantry[3]:

Thou shalt not use Google as a verb to mean the use of any lesser Search Engine

Thou shalt not manipulate Search Results. Search Engine Optimization is but the work of Microsoft
