In 1925 during the Scopes "Monkey" Trials, the ACLU defense attorney, Clarence Darrow pulled an odd stunt and actually put the lead prosecuting attorney, William Jennings Bryan, on the witness stand. What happened next (and I've read the entire transcript last year getting ready for a Genesis 1-3 Bible study), was nothing short of an attack on Byran's Christian beliefs. Here's the whole transcript: http://www.beliefnet.com/news/scienc...pes-trial.aspx Darrow went through the Old Testament and asked a lot of questions about Jonah, Adam/Eve, Cain's wife, and more asking him if he believed these things to be true and could be explain ANY of it. Bryan said he believed it, but could not rationally explain any of it. Here is the small portion of the transcripted question and answer between Darrow and Bryan concerning Cain's wife: "Q—Did you ever discover where Cain got his wife?A—No, sir; I leave the agnostics to hunt for her. Q—You have never found out?A—I have never tried to find. Q—You have never tried to find? A—No. Q—The Bible says he got one doesn’t it? Were there other people on the earth at that time?A—I cannot say. Q—You cannot say. Did that ever enter your consideration?A—Never bothered me. Q—There were no others recorded, but Cain got a wife.A—That is what the Bible says. Q—Where she came from you do not know." Here's my whole sad take on this. Why COULDN'T and WOULDN'T William Jennings Bryan answer the questions? Yes, he was mad that a pagan was mocking God and Biblical beliefs, but all the more reason he SHOULD HAVE answered them. Just saying "I don't know" and "I let you agnostics figure that out" is no testimony. The Bible says clearly in Proverbs (two separate passages) that there is a time TO answer a fool and and time NOT to answer a fool. If ANY time there was to answer a fool trying to make a fool out of Christians and their belief in God's Word (as Darrow confesses at the end of the transcript), THIS WAS THE TIME!! Bryan, the Christian, came off looking condescending, ignorant, angry, and belligerent. Questions like these have been used by non-believers forever in trying to discredit the Bible, God, and Christians. And some Christians today - not a lot, but enough to bring this up - are just like William Jennings Bryan. They don't want to explore, reason, or tackle tough questions. Sometimes, "I don't know" is a good answer. And sometimes, "I don't know" coupled with "I don't care - you figure it out" is a terrible answer.
