Evolution of the Alphabet

Cool little animated GIF showing the evolution of our alphabet from Phoenician to the present day. I've seen charts of this, but the animation really does add the extra dash of geekiness.
Coming soon to the comments of the post, heart-felt logic-bending debate over how the elegance of this development implies the presence of an intelligent designer, also know as the "Theological Typography" debate. Could be the hot-button issue for the 2008 election...
