“Where is Your God Now?” is a popular catchphrase associated with various interweb sightings (images, videos, sites, etc) that defy the logic of human understanding to the point one can no longer resist but to ask him/herself: Does God Really Exist?
The rhetorical phrase “Where is Your God Now” has its biblical origin in the Book of Micah, 7:10 of the Old Testament. The question has long stood as a phrase used both by religious people who tell parables involving one’s faith being challenged, and by those challenging others’ faiths. Slightly varying from one version to another, the phrase has been translated as “Where is your God?” “Where is the Lord your God?” and “Where is your God now?” However, its online usage is thought to have started on Something Awful forums with the strange marriage of the Burger King mascot and the footing: WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?
Spread & Usage
Beginning in about 2005, the phrase began appearing on image macros all over the web, including popular hubsites like 4chan, FARK and Something Awful.
In discussion forums and message boards, the phrase or image macro can be used as an expression of disbelief or shock over an image, video or link that’s been previously posted. It’s been also used to mock or provoke another user in online conversations.
The images generally consist of any incredulous situation, any picture that warrants either an emotional response of fear or absolute confusion. Often times, the image may be nonsensical or manipulated with Photoshop, and presented as though it is an ungodly abomination.
