Answers in Genesis, the group behind the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum, launched a video streaming service to provide those waiting out the coronavirus lockdown with an on-demand media, family-friendly option.
Answers.tv features videos that tackle such topics as social issues, science, and Christian doctrine, and questions like why God allows disease and death.
“Using the help of a supporter who is at the cutting edge of video streaming, we were able to launch earlier than expected and less expensively than originally anticipated,” said Ken Ham, CEO of AiG. “In fact, the creation of the platform and the loading of 1,000 videos were done in a remarkable four weeks, during the coronavirus shutdown itself.”
The videos, which includes documentaries, were produced by a “large team of speakers that include scientists, theologians, and workshop leaders,” according to the group.
Ham noted that the timing of the release of Answers.tv enables the group “to reach many more people who are sheltered in place during the coronavirus.”
“Of course, when things return to normal, people will still be seeking answers to life’s perplexing questions and Answers.tv will be there for them,” he said. “So even as our attractions are temporarily closed, we can continue to present biblical truths and then into the future when the virus is behind us.”
Eventually, Answers.tv — which costs a little over $3 per month — will feature special livestreaming events, including concerts, lectures, wildlife programs, and current affairs programming. The “Answers News” show will be a regular feature that addresses current events from a biblical perspective.
