You know it is a turning point when podcast megastar, Joe Rogan, and Chinese Christian mission organisation, Back to Jerusalem, are on the same page in regards to the dangers of Google.
Joe Rogan has the world’s largest podcast audience and is nowhere near interested in Christian missions work, but has recently revealed that he has stopped using Google to gather information, asserting, “You guys [Google] are hiding information.”
Google purposefully pollutes searches and this is why BTJ recommended switching from Google to DuckDuckGo only last week, in an article posted online.
Rogan goes on to explain, “It’s one of the reasons I stopped using Google to search things, too. They’re doing something to curate information. Look, if I wanted to find specific cases about people who died from vaccine-related injuries, I had to go to DuckDuckGo. I wasn’t finding them on Google. And I’m like, ‘Okay, this is crazy.’ Like, you guys are hiding information. I’m looking for very specific people and very specific cases, and I’m getting CDC websites, and I’m getting articles on the disinformation attached to vaccines, and vaccines being safe and effective, which for the most part they are, just like peanuts are safe and effective for the most part.”
This is also one of the reasons why BTJ launched DingDash.com – a social media service that does not hide information, block posts, or impose algorithms.
