Scopes Trial: Truth Exposed
The facts and effects of the Scopes Trial are as interesting to study as the facts and effects surrounding the worldviews of creationism and evolution. However, the peculiarities of the Scopes Trial are much easier to study because, unlike the six days of creation, the eight days of this event were very well covered by the media of the day. As a matter of fact, it became the first trial to be nationally broadcasted in the United States by all genres of communication. In this message, find out what drew the stalwarts of Christianity, the ACLU, orators, scientists, and crowds of curious onlookers to a small rural town in Tennessee. Both to further research and as an anchor for important life lessons, Robert Caprera comments on those well-publicized, but inconclusive proceedings of 1925. His presentation is appealing to the scientist as well as to the historian, and entertaining as well as sobering.
