Enyart is being sued for trademark infringement and cybersquatting...by the NPR show's producers at ScienceFriday Inc...His science-talk show started in 1991, but he renamed it "Real Science Friday" in 2006 to push back against mainstream science journalism...the suit is demanding that Enyart stop using the name and logo; purge them from any other Internet outlets, such as YouTube and Facebook; transfer the Internet domain; and surrender CDs and other materials for sale bearing the name or logo.

Enyart is the self-described fundamentalist Christian pastor of the 60-member Denver Bible Church. He believes the world's age is measured in thousands, not billions, of years because the Bible tells him so and, he said, scientific evidence backs it up. Enyart and co-host Fred Williams...say they are out to debunk conventional schools of scientific thought, such as Darwinism and other "old earth" theories.

"We think Ira Flatow is a little bit jealous," Enyart said. "For example, when people want to find out the latest science — like finds of dinosaur soft tissues — they come to 'Real Science Friday.' We beat out a lot of science sites."

One post on his website said the suit threatens his and other ministries by using the law as "a weapon to silence God's word that He is our Creator."

I agree with NPR.

The names are too close.

I guess he did that to provoke/annoy.

Then cry about how the word of god is being discriminated against.

BS

Hope NPR wins the lawsuit.

Question I have a question...

Does anyone else think it's strange that this supposedly all-knowing middle eastern god "speaks" to the rest of us through a**holes like Enyart, Robertson, Falwell, and Westboro Baptists?

Fundamentalist Christians are just delusional nutcases.

another inelligent anti-God thread. I'm waiting for the day when atheists and others can raise themselves up a notch or two -- if they expect rational discourse, that is (and are capable of it).

We're cool with God; we just think that some of the people who claim to be his followers are morons.

And vice versa. Sometimes the people who claim to be atheists display behavior that makes them appear to be morons.

Default Belief in God

I never dispute anyone's belief in God. I just do not believe the cosmology they develop around their belief. Most of those get sideways with reality very quickly.

IMHO this "church" has infringed on NPR's copyright to the name and should have to not only change their name but pay NPR reparations equal to the money the "church" gathered due to their false advertizing.

I suggest "The science of OUR world" as a potential name. Or "Our Way not Reality”.

FWIW - I experienced asome dinosaur soft tissue the other day. It was the main course of a Thanksgiving dinner. We call these dinosaurs (or descendants of dinosaurs) turkeys. For very good reason.
