2nd International Conference on The Origin of Life and The Universe

26 05 2017

The Technics & Science Research Foundation (TSRF) Held the 2nd International Conference on The Origin of Life and The Universe at the Istanbul Ritz-Carlton Hotel

On May 21st, 2017, the Technics & Science Research Foundation (TSRF), the Honorary President of which is Mr. Adnan Oktar, held its second annual International Conference The Origin of Life and The Universe at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey.

Focusing on the question of “What are the origins of life?” the TSRF’s The Origin of Life and The Universe Conference drew a line in the shifting sands of the scientific community, declaring boldly that evidence for God’s Creation exists plainly in such fields as genetics, biology, paleontology, physics, chemistry and astrophysics.


Unique among creation-oriented groups, TRSF is THE ONLY Islamic-based organization providing scientific evidence that collapses Darwinism and refutes false claims of evolution. TSRF also endeavors to establish cordial relations between three divine faiths namely Islam, Christianity and Judaism. To this end, TSRF frequently hosts events, which feature Christian, Jewish and other leading theologians, scholars, intellectuals and scientists from around the world.

Attended by approximately 500 participants, The Origin of Life and The Universe Conference featured two sessions of speakers, morning and afternoon (see attached).

In addition to the papers presented on topics ranging from the nature of viruses to the complexity of the human cell, conference goers viewed several exhibits of fossils, dating back millions of years and proving that living things remained unchanged and did not evolve. The audience also enjoyed performances of musicians and the Istanbul Dance Factory.

Conference speakers:


Dr. Fazale Rana, PhD.

An expert in biochemistry, Dr. Fazale Rana is working in the field of biochemistry, genetics, and synthetic biology. With two books, many articles, a document and a podcast on the scientific evidence of Creation to his credit, Rana has given various television and radio interviews along with more than 500 speeches in universities, conferences and churches around the world. The articles he wrote were published in peer-reviewed scientific journals such as Biochemistry, Applied Spectroscopy, FEBS Letters, Journal of Microbiological Methods and Journal of Chemical Education. While studying biochemistry, he realized that evolutionary scenarios cannot explain how life began and life must have been originated by a Creator. After this awareness, Rana devoted himself to explaining this fact to people.

Dr. Anjeanette “AJ” Roberts, PhD.

Dr. Roberts has PhD’s in chemistry from Tulsa University and in the fields of molecular biology and cell biology from Pennsylvania University.
