Scopes "Monkey" Trial

Posted by Dan Draney on August 7, 2005

Orin Kerr at The Volokh Conspiracy has a very interesting review of the legal aspects of the famous Tennessee case on the teaching of evolution. The actual facts bear almost no resemblance to the popular mythology that has grown up around the case (e.g. Inherit the Wind).

I spotted this at Chris Berg‘s blog. He also has some startling information about the content of the text that Scopes was using.
