The History Guys discuss the history of Creationism in the US
In 1925, Tennessee high school teacher John Scopes was charged with
violating a state law banning the teaching of evolution. Back then,
many people believed the Scopes “Monkey Trial” would be the last gasp
of the anti-evolution movement. But 85 years later, about the same
percentage of Americans believe in creationism as believe in evolution.
On this episode of BackStory, the History Guys explore the ways
Americans have attempted to grapple with the biggest question of them
all: “Where did we come from?” Together, they trace the ups and downs
in the relationship between science and religion.
