1.  While Matthew Harrison Brady is on the witness stand, Henry Drummond asks, “Now listen to this.  This is Genesis 4:16, Then Cain went away…and Cain’s new wife…  Now where the hell did she come from?”

Mr. Brady responds,            “Who?”

Mr. Drummond,             “Mrs. Cain.  If in the beginning there was just Cain and Able, Adam and Eve. Where did this extra woman come from?  Did you ever stop to think about it?”

Mr. Brady                         “I do not think about things I do not think about”.

Mr. Drummond,:             “Do you ever think about things that you do think about?”

How would you answer Mr. Drummond’s question about Cain’s wife?    What did Mr. Brady mean by, “I do not think about things I do not think about”?

2.  The following dialogue occurs when Matthew Harrison Brady is on the witness stand.

Brady:            “A well known biblical scholar, Bishop Usher determined the exact time of creation.  It occurred 4004 B.C…In fact, he determined the Lord started creation on the 23rd of October, 4004 B.C. at 9 A.M.”

Drummond:            “Is that Eastern Standard time or Rocky Mountain Time?  It wasn’t Daylight Savings Time, because the Lord didn’t make the sun until the 4th day”.

Brady:            “That is correct.”

Drummond:            “That first day.  Well, what do you think it was?  24 hours long?”

Brady:            “The bible says it was a day”

Drummond:            “There was no sun.  How do you know how long it was?”

Brady:            “The bible says it was a day”

Drummond:            “Was it a literal day?  A normal day?  A 24 hour day?

Brady:            “I do not know.”

Drummond:            “What do you think?”

What is Mr. Drummond trying to tell the jury?  What is he saying about scripture?  Does he mean to say that scripture is incorrect?  Explain.
