Lawyer

Clarence Seward Darrow (1857-1938), lawyer in the Scopes "Monkey" Trial in 1925, on the side of science teacher John Scopes, put on trial for teaching evolution.

An agnostic is a doubter. The word is generally applied to those who doubt the verity of accepted religious creeds of faiths. -- Clarence Darrow, giving his one-word definition for the agnosticism, that is, the Huxlean agnosticism of the old school, in, "Why I Am An Agnostic"


During a speech in Toronto in 1930, Darrow stated, "I believe that religion is the belief in future life and in God. I don’t believe in either. I don’t believe in God as I don’t believe in Mother Goose." [1]
