This day in history: "Monkey trial" July 10, 1925

Clarence Darrow, William Jennings Bryan 
(Brown Brothers, Sterling, PA)

From the Daily Kos:

...This might just be an historical curiosity if it weren’t for the fact that anti-evolution and anti-science forces in our nation are still proposing legislation which attempts to prevent Darwin and evolutionary science to be taught in schools. When that fails, attempts are made to teach faux “creation science” and “intelligent design” as if they are legitimate academic disciplines. 

Making this even worse is the fact that former Republican presidential primary candidates and the presumptive nominee are vocally anti-evolution and anti-science. That should not only be an embarrassment for us as an advanced technological nation, but should be one of the major reasons to reject Republican adherents of pseudo-science at the ballot box in November...
