Pastor settles dispute over 'Real Science' name - Denver
Enyart is a fundamentalist pastor who claims the Earth is young.
A Denver pastor has agreed to change the name of his radio talk show after being sued by NPR for trademark infringement and cyber-squatting. Pastor Bob Enyart was sued over the name of this radio program which he called "Real Science Radio."
The Real Science radio logo is similar in appearance to the Real Science Friday logo.
Aside from confusion, NPS's motivation may have literally come down to science.
Enyart, is the self-described fundamentalist pastor of the Denver Bible Church with a congregation of about 60 members. In his program, he claims the Earth is young, its age measured in thousands of years rather than billions. He also spends time commenting on Darwinism and the Big Bang theory, using scriptural passages and interpretation to challenge current scientific journalism.
The details of the settlement have not been announced, but Enyart said he would be changing the name of his program to "Real Science Radio."
That Enyart preaches real science however, is questionable, and likely the source of much of NPR's ire. Despite resistance from Protestant fundamentalists, scientists have done a very good job providing concrete evidence regarding the age of the Earth and evolution by means of natural selection. Pope John Paul II even made allowance for such beliefs within the context of Catholic belief.
As for the Big Bang theory, it was suggested by Jesuit scholar and priest, Georges Lemaitre. Lemaitre's theory is now the leading scientific explanation for the creation of the universe.
Still, the Catholic Church emphasizes the primacy and role of God in all creation noting that creative limits, scientific or miraculous, cannot be placed on God. In other words, God may create as He pleases.
