Substitute gets Expelled?
After John Scopes was arrested from Dayton High School for teaching about evolution, he violated Tennessee's Butler law, it prohibited the teaching of the Evolution Theory in all the Universities. Clarence Darrow, the most famous criminal lawyer in the country represented John Scopes, and William Jennings Bryan, a three time candidate for president led the prosecution. The key moment in the trial occurred when Darrow called Bryan to testify as an expert witness on religion. Darrow asked Bryan multiply exhausting questions about events described in the Bible.Bryan said that in his view some of the stuff in the Bible may not have happened exactly how he described it. But, he stood to his beliefs. "If I am not able to explain it, I will except it." But the trial ended later that day, and Scopes left the court with a $100 fine (which today is about $1,250).
