Yahoo BOSS framework on Google Apps – what does it tell me

Some yahoo engineer wrote a search engine using the Yahoo BOSS framework and hosted in Google Apps to make a point. It takes your search query and from the top 50 search results formulates an answer. A sample question they provide is “Who invented the light buld” and the answer you get back is “thoma eddison”.

I decided to see if it could answer some of my more deeper questions. The answer were interesting, insightful, humorous and thought provoking.


Which lead to me to Christ…so I asked…

is christ real

Which lead me back to Jesus. Kinda confirming to me that nothing gets between them. Jesus Christ validates himself!
So I asked if Satan was real (I gotta cover all angles):


And the answer hit me with a jolt. One to reflect on.
I pressed on. I had to validate my logic. So I asked if jesus was fake?

is-jesus fake

Ha ha. Fake Jesus = Christians. Guilty! I try to be like Jesus but I ain’t him.
A lot of people agree jesus was real and existed – byt what about God? I asked.

is-god real

Deep. God is real fro Christians? Or we are God’s hands and feet and this is how he becomes real to people. As I said – deep.
A couple more questions to round off my theological inquisitiveness: who wins

who wins

Phew – as I suspected, hoped and have read…Lord Chirst wins!
And in an answer which would make Rick Warren happy:

what is my life purpose

Once again – more validation.
Finally – the geek in more wanted to do a NULL query – so dont fill in anything in the search form. Usually this queries that whole database and comes back with all results. Try it sometime on a search form. So I left the field empty and hit search. What was the rolled up answer to everything indexed on the internet????

the ultimate answer

It said no question supplied….but still gave me an answer. Yahoo!

Thanks Jesus for being the ultimate answer!!!!
