The Scopes Trial ('Bad Faith' #20)

Previous: 'The Works of the Lord'       Next: Who was W J Bryan?

One of the most famous trials in America took place in 1925 in the small town of Dayton, Tennessee, – the Scopes 'Monkey' trial.

Local teacher John Scopes was brought to trial by a group of Bible-thumping fundamentalists, because he had taught the theory of Evolution to his high school class. In doing this, he had broken a Tennessee state law. In the trial that followed, Scopes was vindicated, and the Bible-thumpers were made to look stupid.

This is the legend that everyone knows. In 1960 it was turned into a blockbuster Hollywood movie called 'Inherit the Wind.' But it is not what really happened.

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
