Creation Science

Old Earth Ministries and Answers in Genesis - What's the Difference?

    Welcome to Old Earth Ministries (OEM - formerly Answers In Creation).   OEM exists to examine the claims made by young earth creation ministries, and provide answers to their claims, using sound science and reasoning. The misleading claims of YEC's has led many people to reject Christianity.  However, a proper understanding of the Bible and science shows that you can be a Christian and believe in an old earth.
    We have thousands of articles on a wide variety of topics.  Looking for a quick intro?  We recommend taking our One Hour Tour.  Thanks for visiting, and God Bless!
