Now this is ironic. I saw this article and wanted to pass it along.

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed -- the 2008 creationist propaganda
movie fronted by Ben Stein -- is scheduled to be auctioned, lock,
stock, and barrel, pursuant to the bankruptcy proceeding of Premise
Media Holdings LP. According to a document filed in the United States
Bankruptcy Court of the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division,
on May 31, 2011, the trustee of the bankruptcy estate is seeking to
auction "[t]hat certain feature-length motion picture ('Picture')
'Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed' and all collateral, allied,
ancillary, subsidiary and merchandising rights therein and thereto,
and all properties and things of value pertaining thereto." The
auction is scheduled to take place on-line from June 23 to June 28,

The high bidder will become the owner of the movie that The New York
Times (2008 Apr 18) described as "[o]ne of the sleaziest documentaries
to arrive in a very long time ... a conspiracy-theory rant
masquerading as investigative inquiry ... an unprincipled propaganda
piece that insults believers and nonbelievers alike" and that was
denounced by the American Association for the Advancement of Science
for its "profound dishonesty" and condemned by the Anti-Defamation
League for its "outrageous" misuse of the Holocaust to "tarnish those
who promote the theory of evolution." (NCSE's Expelled Exposed
provides a collection of reviews, commentary, and resources
documenting the extensive problems with Expelled.) Caveat emptor!
