    Correct Answer
    D. Comments and critizisms from a broad range of citizens ranging from atheists to saints.
    Explanation
    The other four options are considered believable sources of evidence for the truth of the Bible. A trusted source of true scientific results can provide empirical evidence that supports the claims made in the Bible. A source able to provide a correct result every time implies a reliable and consistent source of information. A person divinely inspired by God is believed to have direct knowledge or communication with the divine, making their testimony valuable. Objective historians known for their impartial reporting of events and movements can provide historical evidence that aligns with the accounts in the Bible. However, comments and criticisms from a broad range of citizens, including atheists and saints, may be subjective and biased, making them less believable as evidence.
