Hi All,

In The Four Horsemen, Hitchens mentions "the argument between...Huxley and Wilberforce, or and between Darrow and William Jennings Bryan."

I'm sure you know that the argument between Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan is a reference to the 1925 "Scopes Monkey Trial" in Tennessee. More on that can be found at Wikipedia:
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scopes_Monkey_Trial

The 1860 debate between Huxley and Wilberforce is perhaps less known. You can read about it here:
