It's google word-association. Because Christianity or God is mentioned either by us or the thread topics that's why you get religious ads. If there was a kids TV forum and you posted there your ads would probably be links to Disney and stuff.I have a question that may not be exactly on topic, but it does raise a concern. Ever since I entered this topic on Topix a month ago, the ads that appear in my browser are mostly Christian related. My concern is not so much the privacy issue (although it should be, I mean really – wtf?) it is the fact that on every page I browse, there’s a big ad asking "Do you believe in God? Click here for 6 reasons to believe".
Evangelism = profit. Believe in God? Unsure? Doesn't matter. Buy their books anyway. Evidence of Christianity. My near death experience. The life and times of Billy Graham. They're full of BS, but it brings in the tithes.Now here’s my gripe. What does whoever the owner of this ad have to gain if I believe in God? Why has this person or group, who certainly have incurred reasonable costs to be my personal number 1 ad, gone out of their way to prove to me that God exists? What do they expect to gain from this? Financial gain, or just to strengthen their following? I am truly bemused by their need to prove to me that God exists on every website that I visit. This is what I find the most repellent about some true believers. They are not happy in just their own faith, they feel the need to go out of their way to convince me that I too MUST believe. Why do they take it upon themselves to "sell" this belief to others? I am already comfortable with my own religious beliefs thank you, no need to sell me on an opinion or belief that I might not share.
Interestingly enough not one penny of this profit goes towards scientific research but rather more PR instead.
