Genie Scott pointed out to me that I should check the date that they bought their domain name:
% whois expelledthemovie.com
Domain Name: EXPELLEDTHEMOVIE.COM
Registrar: TUCOWS INC.
Whois Server: whois.tucows.com
Referral URL: http://domainhelp.opensrs.net
Name Server: NS1.FILMPR.COM
Name Server: NS2.FILMPR.COM
Updated Date: 16-feb-2008
Creation Date: 01-mar-2007
Expiration Date: 01-mar-2009
February 28, 2007 is the very latest they could claim "working title" as an excuse for their ruse.
When did Scott, Dawkins, and Myers get interviewed? April, 2007 for Scott and summer, 2007 for Dawkins. Does someone have Myers' interview date handy? Was it before February 28th? I somehow doubt it.
Now, what about the idea that maybe they changed things around late? That would mean that there should be a domain registration for "crossroadsthemovie.com", wouldn't you think?

No match for "CROSSROADSTHEMOVIE.COM".

Isn't that ... special?
[From PZ's blog post:
Last April, I received this nice letter from Mark Mathis.
So there you have it... even after buying the "Expelled" domain, and never having bought a domain for "Crossroads", Mathis was using "Crossroads" and its innocuous overtones to invite interviewees for the film.
