A long-term study of Australian biology students reveals how attitudes towards creationism and evolution have shifted.
The survey, published today in the journal Evolution: Education and Outreach, was started 32 years ago by Mike Archer at the University of New South Wales.
"I wanted to know what percentage of our incoming university students held a [creationist] view, which in effect meant we were wasting our time trying to teach them about the science of evolution," Professor Archer said.
Darrell Bock is Research Professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. He is an expert in the historical Jesus and issues surrounding the authenticity and reliability of the New Testament documents. He is the author of more than twenty books and commentaries, including Breaking the Da Vinci Code, which was a New York Times Best Seller.
In this interview he talks about some of the tests historians apply to ancient documents to assess their reliability, and then holds the stories about Jesus’ resurrection up to that standard.
