Spore game: intelligent design promotes evolution

The Spore game (wiki, YouTube channel) has sold one million copies, becoming an official hit. People have submitted about 26 million creatures: see Sporepedia.

While your role in the game is to be God (or "a god", in this case) and help the creation of new life forms by your intelligent design, I guess that the people who play the game will end up believing and understanding evolution more than they did before.

Most negative reviews are complaining about a totalitarian system of digital rights management (activation). Spore creature creator (YouTube) is free (trial).
