I had to read this during my freshman year of high school. It was torture. I remember it was May and the classroom was stiflingly hot and we were reading this POS out loud. Here's a summary I took (many) artistic licenses with:

Religious Nuts: This man's a witch! Burn him!

Scientists: I am not a witch. I'm merely trying to say that we shared a common ancestor with monkeys!

RN: He's saying we're a bunch of monkeys! He's a witch! Burn him!

S: FFS. I DID NOT SAY THAT--

RN: Witch! Witch! Witch!

Policemen: I'm sorry but this is the twentieth century. You can't burn people for being heretics anymore.

RN: What can we do then?

P: Take him to court?

RN: He's a witch! Sue him! SUE HIM!
