Christmas Present to Defenders of Darwinism

The following is an email sent by William A. Dembski to Richard Dawkins along with other prominent Darwinists, particularly those who defended Darwinism during the Dover Trial.
There's a Christmas present for you at my website.
-- a flash animation that features each of you prominently (some of you are probably aware of it already). We're still planning a few enhancements, including getting Eric Rothschild in there and having Judge Jones do the actual voiceovers himself (right now it's me speeded up though it's his actual words). In return for the judge doing himself, we'll drop some of the less flattering sound effects. We would have included Prof. Padian, but the images of him on the internet weren't of sufficient quality (I'm copying Prof. Padian -- if you send me a hi res jpg of yourself, I'm sure we can work you in -- you were after all the expert witness at the trial).
Reponse from Richard Dawkins:
Anybody who resorts to tactics of desperation like this has to be a real loser. Dembski is a loser, and it now looks as though he KNOWS it. My guess is that he will try to take it down when he realizes how foolish it makes him look. Josh, can we can keep a copy, after he tries to remove it from his own website?
UPDATE 12-23-06: We have saved a copy of the flash animation, but will no longer be hosting it publicly on this website at Dembski's request.

A recognised creationist tactic involves scoring minor victories against the teaching of evolution, and recent controversies over free schools and the Giant’s Causeway suggest it is succeeding in the UK. It’s time the strategy was exposed

The worst thing about the recent Gallup poll on evolution is that the proportion of college graduates who are creationists is exactly the same as for the general public.
