    to a class that's half made up of Muslim Arabs, had to explain the American expression "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?"  He was not prepared for what came next:  a protracted theological/philosophical argument.  The answer was entirely clear to the Arabs:  The chicken, because Allah made all the birds.  It was indistinguishable from the Fundamentalist point of view.

    And here I thought the Muslim interpretation of Genesis might have been a little bit more nuanced.
