Too much faith in schools

the rise of Christian schooling in Australia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The recent debate between American celebrity science educator Bill Nye and Kentucky-based "creationist" Ken Ham drew world attention, once again, to the United States as the home of whacky Christianity. But Ham is a Queenslander, whose Answers in Genesis curriculum materials are used in some Australian schools to promote the idea that God created the world in six days a mere 6,000 years ago. According to historians of creationism's world-wide spread, Australia rivals the United States as source of such ideas.
