Today in 1925: Biology teacher John Scopes is arrested for teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution in a Dayton, Tennessee high school in violation of state law.
Working in a public school, he was prohibited by statute, quote, “to teach any theory that denies the story of the Divine Creation of man as taught in the Bible, and to teach instead that man has descended from a lower order of animals.”
