Have Darwinists “Jumped the Shark”?

From an ID supporter (let’s hope he is right):
It seems that by persecuting Richard Sternberg and Guillermo Gonzalez the Darwinists have jumped the shark.
From Wikipedia: The phrase [“jumping the shark”] refers to a scene in a three-part episode of the American television series “Happy Days” first broadcast on September 20, 1977. In the “Hollywood” episode, Fonzie — wearing swim trunks and his trademark leather jacket — jumps over a tank containing a shark while on water skis. Many have noted the shark episode as the moment when they realized the show was no longer worth watching, when it became impossible to maintain a certain suspension of disbelief. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumping_the_shark
After Fonzie jumped the shark, “Happy Days” lost its viewers and sank into oblivion. This now appears to be happening to Darwinism. From now on dogmatic Darwinists will increasingly be unable to do anything to reverse their inexorable cultural demise. The only thing that could help them would be if ID proponents start making stupid mistakes themselves.
