It appears that Australia are going to remove the BC and AD date terms from school history books. Instead they will now use BCE and CE; before common era and common era.
Does this mean that there is historical doubt over the birth of Jesus Christ?
Or is it that the sheer mention if Christianity in schools is too dangerous an issue?
Has the world gone mad?
I know I speak as a Christian, but seriously, even Mike believes Jesus Christ walked the earth and surely it's an appropriate point in time as any. Indeed the cut off for BCE and CE IS Jesus' birth. This seems like fear speaking to me, a fear over faith.
Please Australia, let's concentrate on big issues in education, like historical knowledge if world faiths.
