Q: Were you there?

A: When teaching children, we tell them they should politely ask the question "Were you there?" when talking to someone who believes in millions of years and molecules-to-man evolution.
If someone replies by asking the same question back, we say, "No we weren't there, but we know Someone who was there, Someone who cannot lie, who knows everything, and has always existed.
