Bankrupting the Intelligent Design Misinformation Strategy

Earlier today I googled the phrase "Unintelligent Design" and I noticed that on the right hand side the only sponsored link was for a creationist propaganda site claiming to provide "Intelligent Design Facts". It immediately occurred to me that these people are paying for every single click that sends a visitor their way from the sponsored links. This makes them an easy target. We can hit them where it hurts by actively wasting their marketing funds.

So, if you are against the ID Misinformation Strategy, here's a very easy way for you to help in the fight against them – simply help them to waste their funds by making them pay for your visit. Here's a quick list of Google searches and the ID links to click on to do your part in leaving the ID proponents financially as well as intellectually bankrupt.

Please feel free to add recommendations in the comments and I'll add them to the list.

Hi Anonymous,

On SecularEarth the tag line is "What kind of world do you want?"

I want one in which science is free to progress and children are free to be educated without the talons of bronze age myth wrenching their intellects forever from their minds. So please, go ahead a repost.

So you mean like as the ID movement lies to hide the truth so should I? I think not. I'd rather tell the truth - it's exceptionally beautiful and certainly something to share freely.
