I was practising my modes and found something awkward,

My jazz theory book says:

If i take my F major scale starting from the 4th, i will get
Bb C D E F G A Bb

I then take my 1 3 5 and 7, so i will get Bb D F A, making up my Bbmaj7 chord,
now google tells me the 4th chord of F is Cmaj, plus they dont start on the 4th position of the F chord which is Bb, but they start on the F which is the root...

Google is really wrong and mad on this one do you have a link ?
C7 is the fifth one and it's mixolydian on it.

Hum, what's on your link is not mad ! he just give F Lydian root C and both examples are not having the same root.
Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom is not truth. Truth is not beauty. Beauty is not love. Love is not music. Music is the best...

Because the picture you linked is F Lydian not F Major...? The 4th of F major is Bb if that's what you're asking.

I think you might have read it wrong. F is the 4th of C not the other way around.
