stealth propaganda for intelligent design!

I have been caught by surprise, as some of the participants in this program are reputable people (e.g. Neil Postman, Howard Rheingold) but the last part of it is a piece of not-so-subtle propaganda for intelligent design, with a bunch of advocates of this pseudo-scientific mumbo-jumbo posing as victims of the scientific establishment, just as Galileo was a victim of the Inquisition : this is a bit hard to swallow, considering that these people are closer in their orientation to the religious obscurantists who condemned Galileo than to Galileo himself.
