Who was Clarence Darrow? ('Bad Faith' #22)

Previous: Who was W J Bryan?

The Scopes trial in Dayton Tennessee in 1925 started as a publicity stunt by the town’s businessmen. It went wrong when the national media seized on the story. Once the story went viral, everyone wanted to get in on the act.  A controversial lawyer seized the initiative for defending Scopes.  That lawyer was Clarence Darrow. Darrow was the most famous lawyer in the country at the time. He was well known as a speaker, writer, and a ‘village atheist’ on a national scale.

With Professor Edward J Larson, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning 'Summer for the Gods: the Scopes Trial and America’s Continuing Debate over Science and Religion,' and the Hugh & Hazel Darling Professor of Law at Pepperdine University, USA.

‘Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan.’
- Nobel Prize-winning scientist Arno Penzias
