Internet Bias

The searchable internet, the ideas accessible from google etc., has weird biases. They are not the product of a human consciousness. Instead, they are biases that reflect the number, or perhaps the enthusiasm of adherents to certain ideas. Christian fundamentalists and political christianists dominate the internet on questions of faith. My previous post is a good example. There is no controversy over whether the bible was written by many different people. It is plain as day from the text that there are different authors. Nonetheless, if you start with google, you are led to believe that JEPD sources is some sort of radical heresy adopted by demonic academics. Is there a response to this? How do we live in a world of so much misinformation?
