Charles Darrow

Scopes Monking Trial

Thoughts over Scopes Monkey Trail

I believe this subject it very interesting. I didn't know that Darwin announced his theory that humans had descended from apes. I knew it was a theory but I didn't know that people would make a big deal out of it which they did. It actually surprised the Western world. The most thing I found interesting in this subject is that the 1920s, most of the urban churches of America had been able to reconcile Darwin's theory with the bible, but rural preachers preferred a stricter interpretation.
