These forces of irrationality mean to drag us into a new Dark Ages -- and to the extent that religious demagoguery, superstition, and magical thinking succeed in our world, The Enlightenment has failed. Only when we decide to reject belief in demons, gods, prophecy, eternal life and similar nonsense, can we fulfill our historic responsibility and ensure that The Enlightenment and its values endure.

I'm going to watch the thing now, but this little bit itself is a quite nice summary of the whole problem.
