I made a disturbing discovering which now has me on a search for a new search engine. When I type in ISLAM IS into Google, the auto populate drop down disappears. When I type in 'CHRISTIANITY IS', the auto populate drop down is filled with all negative choices. I tried the same thing in Yahoo, which provided positive and negative choices for Islam, but still all negative for Christianity.

This tells me that search engines are filtering their information. I do not want information filtered. I want to see all the information so I can make a choice on my own. Which search engine is the best for unfiltered and unbiased information?

The problem with using a different search engine is that no other search engine has as much of the Internet indexed as Google. Using any other search engine is like painting over some of the windows on your vehicle... you won't see as much as you would without the paint.

If you want to quickly sample over 40 different types of search engines, you could try one of my unfinished web sites.
Click on my user name for the web address.

It has probably been blocked to avoid causing offense to jihadists. Security people at Google almost certainly read the news, too.

its is true.. Google and a lot of these search engines work with the corrupt goverment, who are trying to hide and filter out information from reaching the public.. I hate all of this corruption.. New World Order.. All of these people who control the world, and the naive public who allow it, because they are ignorant.. Open your eyes people, we are experimented mice also,

I am also looking for an unfiltered search engine.. this used to not happen before.. You could almost find anything, not worrying about bias unfiltered information.. Of course with the renewed world, and their dependance of internet, came "unwanted info", according to the people who rule all others, they decide to stop it and start filtering info over the internet.. They first started with Tv/Radio, now theyre trying to do it with the internet.. bc they've realized people are finding out about it.. I want to kick all of them in the balls!
