How to make a legend (Bad Faith #24)

Previous: A conflict between Christians       Next: Dishonest spinning

The Scopes trial of 1925, in Dayton, Tennessee, has become the most famous trial in America. A legend has grown up that describes it as part of the ongoing conflict between science and faith.

What many of us today know about the Scopes trial comes from a film called ‘Inherit the Wind,’ made in the 1960s. But ‘Inherit the Wind’ was not really about the Scopes trial at all. It was a picture of the anti-communist ‘witch hunts’ that were going on in America in the 1950s.

It represented the Scopes trial in an inaccurate, fictional form. And yet this is the myth that many of us today believe.  Isn’t it time to get at the facts behind the myth?

With Professor Edward J Larson, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning 'Summer for the Gods: the Scopes Trial and America’s Continuing Debate over Science and Religion,' and the Hugh & Hazel Darling Professor of Law at Pepperdine University, USA.
