Searching for "censorship by Google of anti-darwinism" led to me to reddit.com and from there to creation.com and a relevant quote from Google's internal guidelines. I signed off at reddit by quoting those guidelines: Google has made public the internal guidelines used by their evaluators to judge search results quality. Buried deep in this document on page 108 is this innocuous statement:
The following should also be rated "Fails to Meet" because they lead to very poor and upsetting user experiences: …
● Pages that directly contradict well-established scientific or medical consensus for queries seeking scientific or medical information, unless the query indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.
I had my answer: Google does feel entitled to suppress anti-Darwinist opinions.
My quoting of these guidelines drew the following reponse:
[Google does feel entitled to suppress anti-Darwinist opinions] Because "anti-Darwinism" (You're just anti-evolution) is wrong and stupid and therefore google doesn't link people who want factual information to your site. Google also doesn't link people to flat earth sites when people search for earth
[I was directed to creation.com.] No, you searched some shit and then clicked on the site that you thought aligned with your views
[Pages that directly contradict well-established scientific or medical consensus for queries seeking scientific or medical information, unless the query indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.] Yea google doesn't link to known bullshit unless the user themselves searches for the bullshit. Evolution is real, everyone aside from a few dumbasses know it's real and therefore google doesn't show pages saying it's not real.
Is this trolling? Or a representative of the people?
