That's not a chip maker issue, that's more of a system supplier. The chips themselves are efficient, but what Google does, and what it would take to make these efficient farms is more of an issue with system design.

That is why the Bible was compiled by the Catholic church in 325AD at the Council of Nicea, so that all the little Christian churches would have a common background and written account with stories talking about the life of Jesus that the Christian leaders at the time were in agreement was the inspired word of God. A good book to read on the history of the bible is by Rev. Henry G. Graham titled "Where we got the Bible"
"the catholic church and their instance that only the Pope can talk to God, which is in direct contradiction to the primary message of pretty much every book of the Bible..."
That is untrue, the Catholic Church believes everyone can talk to God - that is Prayer, it also believes that it is possible that God can talk to an individual (who is not the pope or even a priest)... Look up "Private Revelation" one of the more famous examples in recent times would be the children of Fatima. The only point that could be interpreted to mean what you say is that only the pope has the authority to decide what is "right" on issues of faith and morals, which we interpret as coming straight from the bible (John 20:23).
That is in fact what many Christians believe and is also a slightly different way to say what has been the Catholic Church's position on topic of evolution since the early 20th century.
