Does Google home know who Jesus is?

    Someone noticed something strange. Google home does not know who Jesus is. Yet, it seems to know about Mohammad and Buddha and even satan...
    Why is that?
    Google has been so politically correct, it is insane...

      For the record, Jesus is the Son of God and his message of peace and love is universal. He is the reason for the religion of Christianity which is the dominant religion in our world for over 2000 years.
      It has been spread to all 200 plus countries around the world and the Bible has been translated to over 2500 languages...

    Don't have that device, but doesn't it work by "googling" the question?  I notice that a google search returns the same thing for "Jesus" as it does for "Mohammad" or Buddha - a list of definitions and sites about the query.

    I'm unsure what listing your personal belief has to do with google results; do you expect google to give that very personal belief system as an answer to a query?

      Jesus at minimum was a historical figure. Why google go out of their way to avoid it is beyond me.
      I know google was always anti religion and anti military. Just look at their google doodles over the years and you can’t help notice how biased and left wing they are as a company...they cater to the globslist, secular world view...

        Anti religion or just neutral, not desiring to pick one over another?  That DOES seem to be a common thread in the country with business (and, mostly, with govt. as well, although many would much prefer to have their own religion governing).

        Nor do I know of any writings from any eyewitness accounts that confirmed Jesus outside of the bible.  Muhammad and Buddha, yes, but not Jesus.  Just reports hundreds of years later from those that believe he was a god.

    Who’s “someone”? What did Google Home do when they asked who Jesus was? I have a hard time believing the story as you’ve just explained it, gotta be more to it.

    Edit: Just googled it, seems it works for some people but not others. Probably just a glitch of some sort. I understand calling attention to it and requesting it be fixed but I’m not sure it needs to spun into a “Google hates Jesus” conspiracy.

    A very valid observance:  if you google “who is Jesus Christ” the first two results are from Christian webpages rather than Wikipedia. Every other religious figure mentioned goes straight to Wikipedia.  Seems like a pretty simple filtering issue.  But why consider that when you can be outraged about something, eh?  big_smile

      Aime, it is more than a filter issue. Oterwise, no one would care. Google as a company, a power one at that, has chosen to use their influence to affect world opinion and skew results. They did this in the past elections and have biased the search results favoring one candidate over another.
      It is no secret that top google executives visited the Obama White house 100 of times...you have to wonder why is that? Did executives of exxon, and IBM and GM did the same? I don’t think so...

      This anti Christian theme is by design. They are secularists. They think Religion is part of the problem not the solition. They and the ACLU are on the same page. They think the US is too Christian and needed to be taken down a notch. They favor other religions such as  Buddhism because it is more transcendental...

      This is just one indicator but not the only ones. Just pay attention to google doodle. It really shows where their priority is set.

        "They are secularists. They think Religion is part of the problem not the solition. They and the ACLU are on the same page."

        Even if were all true, is there something wrong with that?  Are we not allowed to be secular?  If they are on the same page as the ACLU (no religion in govt.) is that wrong?  Difficult to believe, but are you complaining that a Google search doesn't give religious beliefs the same status (simple truth) that you do?  Or that it doesn't give the myth the same priority you do?

        (Understand that I'm not saying your belief system is wrong - just that in our country we ALL have the right to choose our own set of beliefs and that most definitely includes Google.)

          You are missing my point. I am exposing a company that uses its vast power and private data, for purpose of influencing public policy...
          This is very dangerous. It is like 1984 the book. When a company or a government gets too powerful, the people have lost their freedom and are indoctrinated into a philosophy.
          I would be perfectly happy if google just stick to its main product, of being a good and fast search engine. No filters on results...

            By the way, the ACLU is an extreme organization that are extremely anti religion. They are the ones behind the various law suits to remove Christmas from the public square... they are ruining the holidays for all...

              The ACLU isn't extreme nor is it anti-religious. The ACLU exists to, among other things, protect the rights of the individual from the tyranny of the majority.

              Always interesting to see so-called "freedom-loving" conservatives retract their freedom when it comes to religion and instead make sure they do their best to force it down everyone's throat.

              An athiest has exactly as much right as you to see that his/her tax money is not spent on religion, particularly given the importance of the separation between church and state. Thus, there is no reason that a nativity scene needs to be on government property when it can so easily be placed on church property. If the ACLU were anti-religion, then they'd be trying to stop churches from putting Christmas displays on church property, but all they are trying to do is keep the state from sanctioning a particular religion or placing a preference for one religion over another.

              Because the government should behave neutrally on such things, by allowing religious displays on government-owned property, they also must allow other taxpayers the rights to display their religious symbols on the property. Thus, a satanist would have some rights as would every other group.

              Easy solution: religious displays belong on religious property. No conflict.

                That is a false argument. The ACLU only goes after Christians. Also, not all religious displays is to promote religion as they charge. There are many cases where it is the popular view of the people involved. I volunteer at an archive in westchester country. It is a government building. Yet, we have a small Christmas tree on display. It is not to promote anything. Just the people who work there wants to show their celebration. It cost the government nothing. Yet, the ACLU will be all over it if they found out... that is the problem with the ACLU. They are atheist with a bias. They hate  Christians but leave Moslems and Buddhist alone. They want this country to be secular and it isn’t. They will use the power of the courts to get their way. The separation of church and state has been miss interpreted. Go and read the original intent...

                  The ACLU goes after the majority when it is infringing on the rights of the minority.

                  And you are wrong, yet again. Putting up a small personal Christmas tree is not something that is illegal and not something the ACLU would care about as long as the policy in the office is that it is okay for others to do so. Would it be okay for a Muslim or somebody else to put up a display during one of their holidays? If so, no problem. More likely, would it be fine if a Jewish person put up a display for Hannukah? If so, no problem.

                  It's when the government spends everyone's tax money to promote a specific religion that we run into a problem or when a policy discriminates against a specific group. If the office only allows Christmas displays, then there's a problem.

                  That said, some athiests (but not the ACLU that I've seen) are often wrong about prayer in public school.

                  Prayer in public school is fine as long as it's voluntary, doesn't interfere with the learning of others or infringe on their time, and is not sanctioned by the school. It's when the school initiates the prayer that effectively forces people to participate that we have a problem because the school is sanctioning a particular religion over others. If the prayer is initiated by students as a voluntary activity, there is no issue provided that other students of differing beliefs have the same rights.

                  Hmm... what do you think the intent of that Amendment's wording was jackclee? Would you agree that making a law - directed at religion, (or "a" religion) - would equate to favoring or disfavoring a religion? Would you agree that was the intent of the Amendment - to leave religious choices to the people, not the government?

                    It is clear to me the language in the Constitution. It is called the establishment clause. it was put in to prevent government over reach and impose a State religion like they had in England and Germany...
                    It did not mean to remove all references to the deity in the public square. In fact, up to recently, many local government functions start with a prayer for guidance...

                    Having a Christmas tree or singing Christmas carols in schools does not "establish" a religion.
                    I hope that is clear. It is merely celebration a national holiday that the majority of the people in that community beliefs.

        Of course people would care. Everyone’s always looking for an opportunity to be mad about something, people who believe there’s a “War on Christianity” included. First you guys got mad about cups and now you’re mad about voice assistants. Can’t wait to see what random household item is next!

      Or does it mean that those two webpages have more backlinks that Wiki does for that term?  A filter, in other words, or just the algorithm doing what it's supposed to do?

        I don’t understand any of this. lol

        I’m saying it seems reasonable to assume that since Google Home answers based on the Wiki definitions, and since Wikipedia is further down when searching specifically for “who is Jesus Christ,” it’s probably just a result of how it grabs definitions from certain webpages rather than an evil plan to make everyone forget about Jesus.

        1. wilderness profile image98
          wildernessposted 3 weeks agoin reply to this

          And I'm assuming Google Home answers based on the search results of the normal google algorithm data set.  One of which is undoubtedly the number and location of backlinks.

          Of course, neither of us actually knows WHAT is used to determine an answer! Maybe there is a pedestal with a statue of Buddha sitting in each google server room, with tentacles reaching out and controlling each machine. big_smile

          I disagree with HP policy on self promotion but I have no choice. But as you can see, it is easily defeated.
