I wish I could downvote.

Does the guy really need to painfully list every single thing that is clearly displayed in the video? Is the childish narration really necessary? It sounds like the narrator thinks we're all still potty training. By cutting the unnecessary crap, you could condense that video down to 20 seconds max.

If you don't want to waste a couple minutes, here's the link to one of the original reddit threads and very simple image illustrating the point.

*also, google has stated that this is a bug and will be fixed.

Try typing in "Mohammed is" "Allah is" and see what comes up. If google wanted to censor the topic I doubt they'd do it in such a half-assed and ineffective way.

It's easy to think you have a point when you restrict your sample size. This guy is an idiot.

Go to Google and type in:

"Shintoism is"
"Jainism is"
"Christians are"
"Muslims are"
"Protestantism is"
"Agnosticism is"

You get noticeably fewer or even zero results. Gee, I wonder why he only stopped with the ones that "worked"?

All it means is that not enough people have searched on those exact terms to suggest anything. It's an algorithm for fuck's sake. Bug or not, the guy did really pathetic research.

Downvoted.

The same thing happens with variations on the name mohammad,mohammed,muhammad,muhammed (was/is...) nothing comes up. (keep in mind that in addition to being the name of a certain prophet, this is the one of the worlds most common male names ) Jesus is/was by comparison gives several results. Sure , this could be a bug, but given how islam is related to so much controversy and impacts our news every day, it is absurd that it is conveniently missing like this, while much less popular and much less controversial non-news making religions are all included. I would think this one is deliberate on googles part

...a false prophet
...the antichrist
...a liar
...my hero lyrics
...his prophet
...the false prophet
...god

Thinking you're having a technical issue, BRM.

doogle says...

I wonder if something comes up when someone types "Islam is" in arabic...

I think it's a language limitation - enough english-typing people are clueless about their religions, but muslims aren't.

lol 'Jesus Deep Dish?' wtf does that mean?

Raaagh says...

Ugh, Im sure there was a point, but listening to a dude read out what I can plainly see overstepped my "Im on the internet and have limited attention span" threshold.

spoco2 says...

Downvote this:

A) GOD DAMN AWFUL video... shut the hell up, as others have said, WE CAN READ.
B) It's obviously a bug if you just take your damn tin foil hat off for a second
There's something about ISlam starting with IS and following it with an is... that's my take without actually reading their statement of bug.

If you write "islam hate" then you get 'Islam haters, Islam hates women, Islam hates America, Islam hates Jews, Islam hateful religion, Islam hates Christianity etc. etc.'

Really? So you think they did a stupid filter for something and yet left off many others?

Idiots... There are reactionary dickheads on both sides of the religious debate, that's for damn sure.

Njal says...

I agree that the presentation is bad but if the bug is what spoco2 thinks it might be then why can you get suggestions for other things starting with IS? Something as "Isis is" gives at least 4 suggestions. and that uses 3 IS and should be really confusing if that was the bug.

I don't think this is an attempt to censor, I'm just interested what about the word that causes the bug.
