I didn't see a post on this, but I found it entertaining.
While some of us are desperate to lunge forward with technology, unsurprisingly, there are those who want to cower in fear from it. Personally, I crave search results that are increasingly more accurate, relevant and reputable to aid my general pursuit of learning; however, for those who wish not to drink from the fountain of knowledge, but rather gargle backwash from stagnant pools of antiquated ideals, options are now available!
It's not new or anything, but a recent NPR article brought the issue back to light:
In a world where Google has put every bit of information at our fingertips, some people are now demanding less information when they surf the Internet. Some Jews, Muslims and Christians are abandoning Yahoo and Google and turning to search engines with results that meet their religious standards.
Shea Houdmann runs SeekFind, a Colorado Springs-based Christian search engine that only returns results from websites that are consistent with the Bible. He says SeekFind is designed "to promote what we believe to be biblical truth" and excludes sites that don't meet that standard.
Houdmann says a search on his site would not turn up pornography. If you search “gay marriage,” you would get results that argue against gay marriage. And if you type in “Democratic Party,” your first search result is a site on Marxism.
But SeekFind isn’t the only search engine carving a niche market among religious Internet users. There is also Jewogle for Jews and I'mHalal, a Muslim search engine that started in the Netherlands.
I had checked out seekfind.org just for kicks the other day, but in place of the search dialog box, the following message was displayed: "Sadly, due to hacking attempts after our recent interview on NPR, we have had to temporarily deactivate the SeekFind search engine. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience."
The truth will go away if you can only just ignore it hard enough!
