Today's day

What's the difference between 10 million Christian fundamentalists and 10 million human sperm?

One of those sperm has a chance of becoming a thinking human being.

Today is the 80th Anniversary of the indictment of John Scopes. the schoolteacher from the hillbilly town of Dayton, Tenn, who, as the charges put it, "did unlawfully and willfully teach in public schools of Rhea County, Tenn., which said schools are supported in part and in whole by the public school funds of the State, certain theory and theories that deny the story of Divine creation of man as taught in the Bible and did teach thereof that man descended from a lower order of animals."
