In 1997, I bought a Macintosh personal computer in the Philippines. It was the first to use a mouse. Back then, a modem was used to connect the computer to a digital subscriber line (DSL) connection. DSL was the highest speed connection available that used a regular telephone line. It gave out a dial up tone like the one on the video below.
Google was launched in the same year. Now, people all over the world Google. That’s right, it can now be a verb. I do it all the time. I used to Google English idioms for accurate use on my articles. I Google historical events, characters and their political implications for my books. Those are all in the English language.
Later, more languages were added to the Google search, a total of 149 languages to be exact. Let me show you how this helps cultural and spiritual exchange between peoples.
Google explains in English and Tagalog age old Filipino sayings that the younger generations have not learned. Like, for an example, what does Saling-Pusa mean? I Googled it and this is what I got.
Google made any Bible text searchable. If you don’t remember the exact Bible verse, a word or a phrase would be enough.
The internet and Google are just inventions of mere mortals. We can't begin to imagine the level of communication we will enjoy in God's Kingdom.
“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of Jehovah as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14)
