The Church of Google

Move over Scientology! 

Matt MacPherson of Ontario, Canada has started a new religion: The Church of Google. And yes, it is just what it sounds like: He and his followers (no where on the site does it say how many there are, but there are 97 "active users" on their forums) believe that Google is the closest thing to a knowable god that humanity has ever known and should be worshipped as such. Googlists have a list of 9 proofs that Google is god including its (or "her" as the Googlists say) omniscience and omnipresence. They also have their own 10 commandments, including my favorite, "Thou shalt not use Google as a verb to mean the use of any lesser Search Engine." 

Definitely check out their hate mail from people actually crazy enough to take these people seriously. 

Thanks to Kate Fitz Gibbon in California for bringing this hilarity to out attention!
