New Technology Cult

cookiemanLike the authentic God, television and increasingly the Internet are omnipresent (meaning "present everywhere") and omnipotent (meaning "all powerful.") This is a truth we know for television and mobile screens are everywhere and have an all-powerful authority over individuals. Large and small screens bring into our lives at the touch of a button all the wonders of nature and of the universe. Internet power, television and movies gives us visions of the future when we travel at warp speed across the galaxies to behold new imaginary Star Trek civilizations. We can communicate over huge distances even oceans in microseconds!✞

Omnipresent Omnipotent

artificial limbTelevision's power enables us to transport via phone or Skype in a moment around the globe to places in the news in Ireland, the Soviet Union, Australia even the Antarctic. We can no longer say of the multitudes of starving refugees in Central Africa, "We didn't know," for television power shows awful poverty and hunger everywhere. The prophets of television are authoritative and forceful figures. Engrossed audiences by the millions listen intently to the wisdom of television gurus like Dr Oz, Dr Phil, Judge Judy, Oprah Winfrey and others.

New Atheistic Saints

Internet companies like Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Apple and others have enormous wealth and wield great power even over nations as large and powerful as China or the United States even though they hide their profits and often avoid paying their taxes.✞
