Gog and Magog are Kirk Cameron. He is so terrible that God gave him 2 names.....

Was the OP really serious?  Come on now!

Yes.  There is similarity between Gog and Google.

When Daniel referred to the Abomination of Desolation, he didn't have to name the Greek ruler....
Please take it back. I always thought of you as normal and not crazy conspiracy theoryish. This is kinda like the Pat Robertson who is seeing God's end time judgment in every hurricane that blows over the southern US.

I wish I could; however, I read an article about new malware that clandestinely uses Google Gmail's Drafts feature and opens a "hidden" session of Internet Explorer to communicate with its command server.  Google (Gog), Microsoft (Magog) and Russia in one malware application.

I'm glad then that I eschew involving myself in any way with Internet Explorer by instead using... uh, Google Chrome. :o

This brought back bad memories. I remember when I was a Protestant and for some reason everybody believed that Gog and Magog were Russia and China who were, for some reason, going to team up and attack the nation of Israel, sparking WWIII and bringing on the Rapture and all that stuff.

I didn't think there would be any references to Google that early on. That was years before technology was invented, after all.

I read an article where Google co-founder Sergey Brin, during a job interview, asked a lawyer to draw up a contract for selling Brin's soul to the devil.  The candidate was hired and spent 7 years working for Google.

By the way I've spoken with Maria on the phone and find her to be a lovely lady.  To brand her as a conspiracy theorist is unfair.  I used to work late at the data center, and for laughs would listen to Coast to Coast AM on the long foggy drive home.  Now those were REAL conspiracy theorists.
