Smithsonian Posts Previously Unseen Photographs from Scopes Monkey Trial

The Smithsonian recently discovered previously unpublished photographs from the Scopes Monkey Trial. I recently posted an article marking the anniversary of the trial, “This Day in History – July 10” outlining the significance of the case.

You can view these photo’s on the Smithsonian’s Flickr page for free! It’s an interesting look at history.

      I teach history, so we don’t quite go back that far. My school, however, does teach evolution *only* in its science courses.

      When I was teaching Anthropology at the college level, I taught evolution. Every once in a while I would get a student that took issue with it – I simply pointed out that the class was an elective and they knew at the beginning we would be covering the topic.

      It’s still a highly controversial topic here in the state of Texas. Even our most religious students, however, seem to recognize that they need to learn it if they want to get into a good college (and their parents agree).
