Trivia Question: The Scopes Monkey Trial happened because what man taught the Theory of Evolution in a Tennessee school?
Answer: John Scopes
The Theory of Evolution’s contradiction to Creationist religious views was bound to cause trouble. Though Scopes only taught evolution as a theory, the religious communities of Tennessee wanted him fired for contradicting their personal views. The Scopes Monkey Trial ended up setting the stage for the future debates that would happen in public schools over whether or not evolution should be taught.

I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
