Separation of Church and State: Constitutional Policy in Conflict 11
Evolution is one of the most contentious and recurring issues in the public school curriculum,
and is a theory by English scientist Charles Darwin in his Origins of Species (1872), in which he
argued following (
http://www.infidels.org/library/historical/charlesDarwin/
;
http://www.law.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/scopes/darwin.htm
; McConnell et al. 2006, 547):
As many more individuals of each species are born than can possibly survive; and as,
consequently, there is a frequently recurring struggle for existence, it follows that any
being, if it vary however slightly in any manner profitable to itself, under the complex
and sometimes varying conditions of life, will have a better chance of surviving, and thus
be naturally selected. From the strong principle of inheritance, any selected variety will
tend to propagate its new and modified form.
Therefore, Darwin’s theory suggests only the survivors would pass on their form and abilities
(
http://www.infidels.org/library/historical/charles_darwin/origin_of_species/Chapter4.html
).
This view contradicts strict evangelical Fundamentalist views included in their set of small
books called “The Fundamentals: A Testimony of the Truth (1910-1915), claiming the essential
points of Christian doctrine. This evangelical Protestantism is a movement militantly opposed to
secular, liberal trends in modern culture (2006, 546, 547, and 548). Further, Christian
Fundamentalist believe that only their interpretations of both the Old and New Testaments are
valid.
By the early 1920s several states had passed laws against teaching evolution in the public
schools, which included The state of Tennessee’s 1925 Anti-Evolution Act
