|Some of the commenters at TalkRational Forum seem to strongly disagree with trying to bid on "Expelled". |
Each stage in the religious antievolution movement's evolution is a progressive camouflaging of their motivations. The *only* protection for keeping science in the classroom and the religious antievolution arguments out is continuing to prove that, yes, it really still is just religious antievolution and not some form of science or advancing "academic freedom". It's possible that there is no "Wedge Document 2" awaiting in what's up for auction, but I'd be irresponsible if there were and I hadn't tried my best to get it. Besides which, there is no intention of restricting access to "Expelled". If anything, we want to provide more information in it, i.e., add in the true stuff that Miller and Stein cut out.
With the hard core IDers we will look bad no matter what happens but I think that for those who are less rusted-on googling expelled and finding 100 satirical you-tube videos can only help.
Buyers will come in four camps
1. Us to use for education
2. Creationist organisations as a money stream.
3. Somebody like Ben Stein or the DI who wants to bury it or to stop 1 happening
2/ I was wondering how much money is left to make out of it? Most of the people who want to see it will have seen it or bought the DVD. There probably already unsold stock already in the distribution channels.
