Tennessee's Genesis Law Unconstitutional NASHVILLE, Tenn. ( A P ) Tennessee's 1973 "Genesis .aw," which rekindled memo- ·ies of the John Scopes monkey rial, has been held uncon- ititulional. Nashville Chancellor Ben Cantrell ruled Monday that the :elebraled law is an act "re- peeling the establishment of religion" and thus runs counter o the constitutional doctrine ol separation of state and church. The law decreed that the Adam and Eve theory of man's origin be spelled out in text- woks alongside the theory of evolution. It also forbade I h e eaching of "occult" or "salan- c" theories and includes a disclaimer saying all the theories--with the exception of the Genesis Adam-Eve account-are not fully founded on scien tific fact. The Tennessee Legislature assed the law in 1973, specifying that all biology textbooks n the state's public 'schools must give equal consideration o all theories of creation o: nan. Canlrell ruled that the legis lature attempted to place the Biblical account of man's crea ion and the world above other :heories. By so doing, he said :he law gives a preference to religion and violates the Ten nessee Constitution. Lawyers Gary Blackburn anc Malcolm McCune filed the sui on behalf of Harold Steele president of a group callei Americans United for the Sepa ration of Church and State. .It was not known at once II the state would appeal the rul ing. ;copes, a biology teacher was convicted in 1925 at Day :on, Tenn., of teaching the theo ry of evolution of man, whicl at that time was against the law. The theory holds that man evolved from the ape.
