Notes

Rather than suppressing this video, however (as the video implies they do for all dissenting ideas), Darwinists have generally been spreading it as it tends to come across as a rather amusing parody of the paranoid nature of the anti-Darwinists rather than a serious attack on the theory of evolution by natural selection. PZ Myers (who is featured prominently as a backup singerrapper) posted it on his blog, and it was even played at the Oregon evo-devo symposium Myers attended not long after the video's release [1].
