The first of three documentaries looking into the ongoing struggle between the belief systems of religion and science.
Over 70 years ago, the "Monkey Trial" brought the debate between creation and evolution to public prominence. Today, half of the US population still believe in the former, condemning the latter as a heresy responsible for the current moral crisis.
In the state of Tennessee, the battle is being fought out in the arena of the education system. An anti-evolution bill being debated by the US Senate would ban its teaching as anything other than a theory. Presenting evolutionary biology as fact could result in prosecution. With the US Presidential election looming, the debate has assumed even more importance with priests, politicians and professors taking a stand as they await the verdict of the Senate.
Thriller starring Ryan O'Neal
