PBS, NOVA and Intelligent Design (ID)

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]raven_oreilly) I got wind of PBS putting on a NOVA presentation about Intelligent Design over here at dailyKos.com a little too late - I checked KOS after the show had ended. Anyways, it's available to be watched on the PBS site dedicated to the presentation. I watched it today and it's fantastic. They basically go into the entire Dover story - how it started, who was involved, the lawyers, the case, the ruling (with Judge Jones reading excerpts) and the fallout - including Pat Robertson saying, "I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God. You just rejected him from your city..." in response to the Dover citizens electing an entirely new school board that aren't pro-ID.

I think it was pretty well done. They gave the ID people their representation and the narrator doesn't seem to be obviously bias towards either side (at least to me upon first viewing). They let the ID people speak for themselves and I think it's apparent to anyone who isn't a fundamentalist Christian that the Judge made the right decision.

Glad to see PBS aired this, especially after some of that fishiness I think this community blogged about a few months ago.

On a personal note, I wanna punch Phillip E. Johnson in the face, after reading the interview "In Defense of Intelligent Design" and seeing him in the show.
