The Scopes Trial

Religion versus Science

Effects on the teaching of science
The beggining of Dendrochronology
Dendrochronology is proposed however it is not introduced for a few years

Dendrochronology is scientific method of dating based on the growth rings of a tree


1922
1923
Walther Hermann Nernst
"Prove it!"
"Told you so!"
more than
500
different “sulfa drugs", only
15
ultimately proved to be of value.
Prontosil

Insulin
Penicillin

"
Insulin is not a cure for diabetes; it is a treatment. It enables the diabetic to burn sufficient carbohydrates, so that proteins and fats may be added to the diet in sufficient quantities to provide energy for the economic burdens of life.

Frederick Banting (1925)
1929
Penicillin
1928
Edwin Schrödinger
“I like to believe the moon is still there even if i am not looking”

- Albert Einstein
Astronomy
Revolutionary papers on the
expanding universe
and the
Big Bang Theory
are published.
Edwin Hubble
The Big Bang
Modern quantum physics are developed throughout the 1920's

The Criminal Court of Tennessee in 1925. The sign says ''read your Bible''
Many of the major developments in medicine that we take for granted had their genesis in the 1920’s and have contributed to increasing overall life expectancy. Even though the medical discoveries were still very poorly used back then they have helped to create most of the medical supplies we have today.
Chemistry
An age of innovation or ignorance?

Biology
OR
To conclude, the Christian public had a very difficult time grasping the concept of evolution and therefore protested against it for quite a long time. Evolution was accepted in the end and gave people a larger knowledge about their own history.

Though some new theories where initially controversial the 1920's was,for modern physics, one of most prosporos decades yet; opening up new and uncharted territories as it rolled down the path of progress.
