I think their "don't be evil" motto really is a thing of the past.

They ditched that a coupe of years ago (for real) IIRC 2016 but might be wrong [Whoops 2015! https://www.washingtonpost.com/gdpr-consent/?destination=%2fnews%2fmorning-mix%2fwp%2f2015%2f10%2f05%2falphabet-now-googles-overlord-ditches-dont-be-evil-in-favor-of-do-the-right-thing%2f%3f]

'Gnostics' are heretics and worse than 'unbelievers'.

I just did a search for that and got nothing of the kind. What exactly is being censored? I'm not trying to fight or disprove you, I'm honestly trying to understand.

I can see Theopedia calling Gnosticism Heresy but many many others just giving definitions and examples seemingly without bias. Because that happens to come up in a google search, I dont think that means that there is censoring going on - because I'm getting much more information that isn't that.

Do you think it might be a Regional thing? I wonder if I would get different results by changing countries with a VPN? I'm curious to try now.

I heard they were also censoring Piracy and file sharing sites but I haven't had a problem there either.

Maybe it helps that I have installed some privacy and ad blocking apps to Chrome? What I can say is that I am now much more informed, it seems, than I was about the Gnostic faith than I was twenty minutes ago.

I just did a search

It was back in the day, but I could find some similar results with 'christian gnostic': https://www.gotquestions.org/Christian-gnosticism.html A lot of this stuff from American-church forums showed up back then only on the term gnostic.

I can believe that maybe Gnosticism was related a lot to Christianity by the 2011 google.

The rest you post are all possible valid points, but there are 'blacklisted' (mostly real spammy/infested sites, so 'humanly censored') sites.

Maybe it helps that I have installed some privacy and ad blocking apps to Chrome?

Privacy on Chrome? not even Chromium!? Ehhh, you might want to reflect on that.

What I can say is that I am now much more informed, it seems, than I was about the Gnostic faith than I was twenty minutes ago.

I present you the quickest, and funniest, run down on the basic concepts used in the pleroma of the 'faiths/paths/perceptions/philosophies' encompassed by the term Gnosticism and why the Church doesn't like it: https://images2.imgbox.com/cb/42/D3dVgOhd_o.png
