Funny new ads on Science Blogs

First it was woo. Then it was Russian Brides. And now…..

This funny ad from yesterday:


And this one staring at me right now:

    Ironic, I think they could find a more gullible population elsewhere…

    Aimed right at the heart of the beast….

    When I have the misfortune of having to surf SB from work on IE, I get wonderful ads offering me “single christian girls in my area” and the like, it is quite bizarre.

    I for one, cannot help but absolutely adore these new ads. Let the fuckers throw away their money – better waste it here, than somewhere they will actually suck people in…

    I have the feeling these will make for some fun reading…

    Why the DNA structure points to God…

    They really don’t get it, do they?

    DNA in our cells is very similar to an intricate computer program. In the photo on the left, you see that a computer program is made up of a series of ones and zeros (called binary code). The sequencing and ordering of these ones and zeros is what makes the computer program work properly.

    This is what I like to call “overextending the metaphor” or “mixing reality with cognitive bias”

    I bet they try to sell ice cubes to Eskimos also.

    Life can be more stupid that fiction.

    Of course it would be unethical of anyone to suggest that we click on these ads, resulting in direct costs to the advertisers…

    Michael: I officially encourage you to click on the ads. I assume that my readers do not have preconcieved notions of what these ads have to offer. I assume my readers will, if they happen to have the time and a bit of curiosity, visit the sites to which the ads point and see what they have to offer. If there is some worthwhile product, you’ll consider buying it, it is some worthwhile cause, you’ll consider joining.

    Go have a look, it may be something that changes your life! By all means! Those of you with ad block software should turn it off and have a look.

    Seriously Greg, if I was lusting after single christian girls I would just go to church !

    Is DNA ‘God’?

    DD, we all know that DNA isn’t God. It’s the language of god. Officially, cause the next director of the NIH says so.

    Mike, God doesn’t know English, Greek, German, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, Swedish, Farsi…

    He only knows DNA and Hebrew…

    Horowitz is God?
