In one of his most popular talks, Dr. Menton exposes the distortions and inaccuracies in the play and movie Inherit the Wind. An influential propaganda piece, Inherit the Wind has deceived millions with the false belief that Christians went on a “witch hunt” to stop John Scopes from teaching evolution. In reality, it was a “set up” by the American Civil Liberties Union. The movie (and play) contain many falsehoods, including the supposed verdict of the trial itself! You owe it to yourself, and to the next generation, to know and share the truth about this famous trial.
Dr. David Menton holds a PhD in biology from Brown University and served as an award-winning professor at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis for 34 years. He retired as an Associate Professor Emeritus and now serves with Answers in Genesis as a speaker, writer, and researcher.
