"What we have is six stages of
creation," he said. "That does not
mean six 24-hour days."
The Agnostic and Atheist
Group stressed the importance of
knowing the definitions of agnos
tic and atheist.
Brett Lemoine, a senior com
puter science major, said an athe
ist denies the existence of God
while an agnostic has yet to de
cide whether God exists.
"I don't want you to think that
atheists are all depressed and
looking for things that aren't
there," Lemoine said. "I'm happy
with my life."
"I don't want you to
think that atheists are
all depressed ... I'm

The panelists for Campus Cru
sade for Christ explained why
they are Christians.
"We find Christianity to be the
only religion that is internally
consistent," Swanson said.
"Christianity is not a list of do's
and don'ts. Christianity is being
close to God."
Kim Moreland, sophomore bi
ology and Russian major, said
she grew up in an agnostic family
and converted to Christianity.
"I'm able to deal with prob
lems a lot better because I know
God is in control," she said. "I
feel like I'm whole now."
Many members of the audi
ence said the debate went well,
but both groups weren't always
clear in their responses.
"The Campus Crusade
seemed, to contradict their own
statements, but the Agnostic and
Atheist Group did avoid some
questions," said Stacey McCo-
mas, sophomore microbiology
Some audience members said
the groups were successful at be
ing respectful of each other.
"It went very smoothly," said
Bud Cox, mechanical engineering
graduate student. "There are a lot
of people who can't make the
time to study religions."

"I think it's necessary, but it needs more ad

I think they should implement another cere

Carter said time and cost restraints would
make it difficult to implement a fourth gradu
ation ceremony.
"We reviewed all alternatives, and this is
the best one we could come up with given the
facility and the shortness of time," Carter said.
There will be closed-circuit viewing of the
graduation ceremonies in one of the Rudder
theaters for the overflow crowd where no ad
mission tickets are required.
"I think under the new circumstances, it's
no different in the long run," Koldus said.
"There's been an overflow in the past and we
may be able to accommodate the overflow bet
ter this way."
Carter said degree candidates will be re
ceiving more information about the admission
tickets for commencement exercises soon..
Whether admission tickets will be required
for the August and December commencement
exercises will depend on the number of gradu
ation candidates since they are not traditional
ly as large as the May ceremonies.
"This was a very difficult decision for the
president to make because we know how im
portant this is to the degree candidate and
their family and friends," Carter said.
