something from nothing, or at least the physical from the non-physical. Lets all just admit that there is a single Holy God, who created the physical universe as we know it. He has always, and will always exist in spirit (non physical). For reasons unknowable to us He decided to create the physical universe - logically there is no other possibility.

Invoking an uncaused god to "explain" an uncaused universe doesn't do anything except add a middle man, and ultimately leaves *more* unexplained than before.

We don't celebrate DST in Tucson, but all my distant suppliers etc. do, so I have to adjust my mental clock to deal with their different offsets.

I'm the opposite: *I* don't use DST, and I have to spend most of the year reminding myself that "those idiots" think it's an hour later than it is.

It's not university sponsored, it's simply being held in a university facility. Not really any different than allowing political groups to meet, or some student group to show films. It doesn't mean the university endorses the content.

Of coruse, the could have easily rented another venue in Oklahoma, but they like to use university facilities to create the {il,de}lusion among the True Believers that their views have some legitimacy.
