(p.1) Introduction
After the Monkey Trial

Christopher M. Rios

Fordham University Press

The introduction establishes the framework for the pages that follow by recalling how the infamous “Monkey Trial” of 1925 both symbolized and perpetuated the conflict thesis, the idea that science and religion are at war with each other. This chapter also introduces one of the landmark events in the effort to disprove this common misperception. The virtually unknown International Conference on Science and Christian Faith, held in Oxford in July 1965, was a gathering of thirty-six men from ten countries who sought to demonstrate the positive relationship between modern science and biblical Christianity. How this conference came about and the efforts is represented are the subject of the rest of this book.
