    this is a wacky fundamentalist based search engine. type in democratic party and you get Marxist crap. Are some Christians so weak they can't see what is really out there?

    Ugh it's awfully predictable. All articles disputing climate change. All articles disputing evolution. All articles denying archaeopteryx is anything but a bird (an ICR author even references his own book as evidence lol). It's an echo chamber for morons.

    Not nearly as funny or as insance as conservapedia though :).

    Oh thank god. Finally Google agrees with my narrow political viewpoint, it was getting so uncomfortable to have all this exposure to facts.

    Do horses like their blinders, or is this unique to the human species?

    That's actually dangerous. It's one more way for ignorant parents to perpetuate their ignorance in their children.

    Are they running a Windows server?

    I was looking for "porn" and "seek truth", but got this instead. Seems they are getting traffic, though it may just be curious ones like us to see what crimes against common sense they are committing.

    Is that the blood they shed for giving us that "God-honoring, biblically-based, and theologically-sound Christian search engine"?

    Under Policies:
    "(4) It must be designed well, with not an excessive number of errors/malfunctions."

    Not off to a good start then,it's been slashdotted. Seeing as it's busted I copied this, a search for Atheist,first link is Conservapedia which states:

    Unlike Christianity, which is supported by a large body of sound evidence (see: Christian apologetics), atheism has no proof and evidence supporting its ideology.

    They're having a laugh surely?

    Heard this on NPR yesterday.

    You forgot to include

    http://www.imhalal.com/beta/

    and

    http://www.jgrab.com/

    in your list of "wacky fundamentalist based search engines."

    I hope "That's actually dangerous. It's one more way for ignorant parents to perpetuate their ignorance in their children." applies to all these.

    Unless you just hate christians?

    Looking for equivalencies again?

    However, search engines should be like libraries, open and capable of challenging your knowledge and assumptions about the world.

    Looking? The NPR story on this exact subject mentioned all three websites and their respective benefits and drawbacks. If I had started a thread about imhalal.com and labeled it as a wacko fundamentalist terrorist site it wouldn't go over too well here.

    I agree. Why couldn't christians, muslims, or jews just use google, bing, or yahoo... or even lycos?

    You often advance equivalences; this one was more apropos.

    It might have to do with your description.


    Well, no one should use Bing.

    Boohoo, everyone is open to being mocked, basic freedom of speech, comedy satire and life in general, just some people (wont use the big wide label such as all of a certain religion) make it a bit easier than others.

    if they also mislead and misdirect instead of giving actual information, then yes, by all means they should be considered wacky fundamentalist crap.

    Having tried out all three it's only the Christian one who seem to be filtering out any pages on content.The Jewish one is very handy for specific issues,for instance I searched for Israeli Anarchism which on Google is awash with results completely irrelevant, the Islamic one appears to have no narrowing of search results at all (though I'd didn't search for porn or Atheism).

    Of course I realize that everyone is open to being mocked. I appreciate that aspect of our country.

    Now I'm going to put on my generalization hat here....

    -It seems to me that many of the people who would hastily decry and mock Christianity would be loathed to mock or decry Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, or any of the other Religion with a relatively small amount of followers in the USA. They would probably encourage one to "learn more about other cultures" or "Open your mind," then mock the American Christian churches with their next breathe.

    IMO it is largely a result of the growing "Anti-Status-Quo-America" vibes that we are getting from Hollywood, news, other countries, etc. The "America is too rich, Americans are fat and stupid, America sux Europe RuleZ!" mentality.

    Then again, I may just need a thicker tin foil hat...

    Nonsense. All those religions are just as mental in their own special way. Believing in the supernatural is irrational whether it's Islam, judaism, christianity of Liberarianism. It just so happens that christianity is the largest religion with the most influence in the us so it gets the most kicking.

    Remember the cartoon drawings of Mohammed. That Arab Muslims in US films are always the bad guys (taking over from the Russians).

    If Christians continue to pull publicity stunts, burns religous books, with hold information and cover up about suspect priest actions then they have made themselves open for ridicule.

    Well, it's considered poor form to kick the little guy. Also, Buddhists are far less annoying than Christians.

    Exactly. The large number of Christians creates a target rich environment. I'm fully capable of mocking everyone's faith, including my own magical thinking.

    As an experiment, I went to seekfind.org and entered "Islam" into the search to see what I found, and then to imhalal and entered "Christianity". I think the relative wackiness of these two sites is pretty well summed up by my little experiment.

    Here are the top results on Islam from seekfind:

    And from I'mhahal on Christianity:

    Very interesting miloblithe. I know which one I'd use*.



    *of I couldn't use a normal search engine for some bizarre reason.

    I just went on 'jgrab' and found it ironic that the Jewish site out of the three has a banner trying to sell itself ;) Now that isn't really heling the stereotypes, is it?

    However, that's not what I wanted to mention - apparently the people who made it also made a site called jwed.com which is designed to find you a wife... not just a dating site, but they are there for the sole purpose of getting you married off.

    This is a quote from one of their 'couples':

    Does that sound strange to anyone else, or is it just me? Firstly that this site claims to find you a wife, not find you someone to meet up with and see how it goes, but actually find you a wife and secondly that the person who wrote that doesn't seem too interested in the other person, it just seems convenient.

    Maybe it's because I'm not Jewish and don't agree with arranged marriages at the like, but isn't that strange?

    (Sorry to hijack the thread :rolleyes:)
