MONKEY TRIAL, TENNESSEE, 1925
THE COPERNICAN CONNECTION
JULY - NINETEEN TWENTY-FIVE....
Will belief in the Bible survive?
Its enemies came to Dayton with zeal undiminished
To tell the world that Genesis was finished.
Bryan fought nobly for the Creationist cause,
And many of his points drew loud applause.
The court ruled in his favor, but many could see
That the other side had won the vic'try.
One of the main reasons why this was so,
Was that of all the questions that Darrow could throw
The one about Joshua saying "Sun Stand Thou Still"
Was what angered Bryan and set him up for the kill.
For, even by that date everyone had learned
That the earth daily on an axis turned,
And sped around the sun that wasn't mov'in
Not being aware that this too was unproven.
That put Bryan between a rock and a hard place,
For the Bible said the earth didn't go thru space!
So the evolutionists made fun of the Bible and from there
Have brought education to its present state of despair.
Bryan did his best, and if he fell below perfection,
It was because he didn't see the Copernican Connection!
Evolution is a lie, and scientific it cannot be;
But Copernicanism is a bigger one, and it started in 1543!
So, if you would like to see Bible Truths restored,
(And if skunking evolutionism would make you smile-)
Let's do it right this time
AND PUT COPERNICANISM ON TRIAL!
