Sister Aimee
"God or Gorilla?"

McPherson perusing an open book on a table with her head resting on her fist. Aimee Semple McPherson first encountered the contradiction between the teachings of the Bible and the theory of evolution when she was in high school. This conflict between the story of the world's creation in the Book of Genesis and Charles Darwin's account of it in Origin of Species would remain a central issue in her life. McPherson would dedicate herself to battling evolution and spreading God's word.
