Finding Jesus on Wikipedia

Back in 2006 when nobody read my blog I came up with this unoriginal “six degrees of Wikipedia” game. I haven’t really played it since.

Boing Boing today posted “Click to Jesus” – a similar concept. See how you go.

1. Go over to Wikipedia.
2. Click “Random Article” just below the Wikipedia unfinished Death Star logo. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
3. Choose the link in the article you think will get you closest to the Jesus article.
4. Keep track of the articles. Continue step 3 until you arrive at Jesus.

Scoring:
1 point for Random page
1 point for each click
1 point for Jesus page

You get style points if you start at Kevin Bacon – share your path from Kevin Bacon to Jesus in the comments.

  1. Kevin Bacon> fraternities> College of William and Mary> Church of England> Christian> Jesus

    Hmmmm….. 6 degrees of separation as well.

  2. Kevin Bacon> Footloose > Utah County > Lehi > Book of Mormon > Messiah > Jesus…

    The Book of Mormon entry says plenty about Jesus but doesn't link to him. That's about true of the Mormon religion.

  3. I was trying to start at Kevin Bacon, but then I thought, ‘Hey, I could just change Wikipedia to like directly to Jesus.’ But maybe that’s too easy…
