Storyboard Text

  • History Class
  • Kelsie has a question for Mr.Williams
  • Well Kelsie,   back in the  1920s  the argument of religion vs science was big, especially when it came to evolution. Actually, that is  our topic today  
  • Mr.Williams, my friend told me that evolution isn't real but, how can you deny the cold hard facts?
  • The Scopes Trials
  •  Mr.  John Scopes he is currently on trial
  • Here we are in Tennessee  1925. Let me intrduce you to ... 
  • This is  Clarence Darrow,  his defense attorney.   
  • Mr. Williams What did  Mr. Scopes do wrong?
  • 
  • That is Mr. William Jennings Bryan.  He is the prosecuting attorney
  • This man has been teaching his students evolution and refuses to terminate this behavior.   
  • It was against the law.    With the Butler Act, teaching evolution was illegal
  • Wait, he taught his students? That's it?!
  • To the Scopes Trials!
  • 
  • Please  tell me that he was found not guilty.
  •  He was found guilty, and after appeals  he Mr. Scopes  had to pay $50
  • Mr Bryan should answer that question.
  • 
  • Why do  you think  the state prosecuted Mr. Scopes?
  • The absurd nature of the trials gave them the name monkey trials.
  • 
  •  No,  the people were afraid of the new ideas.   Just like your friend is afraid of the new teachings compared to what she was told. 
  • The court deemed the law constitutional since  the disbelief in evolution   did not pertain to one religion.  
  • 
  • They were dumb ignorant people?
  • Kelsie finally understood her friend's perspective and decided to accept her point of view.  
  • Oh I need to go talk to my friend.
