Science News Ad with Snake Could be Evil

This is a trivial post, but I found this screenshot I took of ScienceNews.org amusing. You might think it is because of the article title “Male DNA found in female brains” and while that was an interesting read, what I’m referring to is the ScienceNews ad on the right. They chose a snake to represent “the gift of ScienceNews.” I doubt it was intentional, but the snake traditionally represents Satan and possibly it was a poke at superstition. Most likely the designer of the ad simply thought it was a nice photo. However, take a look at Ken Ham’s book on creationism, an attack on science, and you’ll see why the original ad caught my eye and made me laugh.
