Eh.. I dunno. They're not promoting it directly in so far as they're just using it as a tool to reach their audience (and effectively at that). How does the law extend to purchased extended utilities/services? What if they were having an event for their audience somewhere, would they not be allowed to name sponsors either?

I wouldn't call it nuttery, and I vehemently disagree with many of those analogies. Whereas religion yields no tangible product, scientific investigation and thought leads to inspired, clever, and useful technologies. Do you think DaVinci's ideas on flight were an endeavor in nuttery as well? If you argue in the affirmative then I would be quite surprised at such lack of foresight. That we are capable of speculating (in quite an educated manner) so far into the future is a testament to human ingenuity.
