Even with all the uproar, the teacher at the center of the controversy is still amazed at the anger his class has generated. “I can’t change the nature of advanced mathematics,” said Scopes. “It would be nice if Pi were exactly three, for example, but that’s not for me to decide. In fact, you could say that mathematics is the closest thing to a language of God you’ll ever see.” Suddenly the interview was interrupted by the sound of pitchforks and torches outside the classroom window. “Oh, crap. I probably shouldn’t have said that.”
It’s funny ‘cause it’s true. Well, almost.
