The Expelled DVD

I have been wondering for quite some time what extras might be included on the DVD for the film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. If anyone has any information in this regard, please comment here. I hope that it includes a lot more interview footage. With all the quality footage in the film, I am sure there is plenty of quality material that had to be edited out.

There were complaints that the film did not explain ID enough. I am sure that they will include some extra material addressing that.

It could be that the DVD will be as much of a bombshell as the original documentary. The original was targeted to a wide audience, so interview segments were kept short. The DVD may contain statements that will be of much greater interest to scientists and specialists.

What I hope for most? A segment showing Dawkins, Myers and others contradicting NCSE propaganda on many points. We saw a glimmer of that in the film.

I am counting on seeing the part where Dawkins admits that he changed the name of his documentary for marketing purposes before it was released.

I plan to buy two copies of it as soon as it is released: one to keep and one to loan out to as many people as possible. I encourage all my readers to do the same.

Wait, what? I think you're confused. It was Mark Mathis who changed the name of Expelled (or so he claims) after interviewing Dawkins. Which of Dawkins' many documentaries are you referring to?

When requesting interviews with Darwkins, Myers and others, Mark Mathis lied to them and told them the film was called "Crossroads: The Intersection of Science and Religion".

I am guess the Beware the Believers video will be on it.

I know a lot of Christians who planned to wait for it to come out on DVD...so this release should be interesting.

Remember the section where the functions of the cell were depicted using computer animation? It would be better if they included narration to describe what was being shown.
