The famous Monkey Trial ended this day, July 21, 1925, as John Scopes, a high-school biology teacher in Tennessee was fined for teaching a theory of origins called evolution. William Jennings Bryan, three-time Democratic presidential candidate, was the prosecuting attorney. He objected to a tooth being presented as proof of humans evolving from apes. Later the tooth was admitted to be that of a pig. William Jennings Bryan, who died five days after the trial, once stated: "I am interested in the science of government, but I am more interested in religion ... and I shall be in the church even after I am out of politics."
