I have my reservations about Christian-Atheist debates, and I have my reservations about evidentialist apologetics… but this event looks intriguing – not least because of the participation of Professor Edwin Judge. I’m quite curious about attending…
Did Jesus rise from the dead?
For 2000 years Christians have laid claim to an historical event. This mock trial will examine Jesus’ reported resurrection using the standards and procedures applied in contemporary secular courts.
Ian Davidson SC will argue the case for the resurrection with reference to ancient documents and by calling historian Professor Edwin Judge. A second barrister, Martin Hadley, Treasurer of Australian Skeptics Inc., will cross examine Professor Judge and call an expert witness of his own. Justice Kenneth Martin of the Supreme Court will instruct you, the audience, on how to assess the case.
|When:||7-10pm, Thursday 21st May|
