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.
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.
An expert in biochemistry, Prof. 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. After graduating from West Virginia State College with a BS degree in chemistry, he earned a PhD in chemistry at Ohio University and was also granted the Donald Clippinger Research Award two times. Prof. Rana wrote a PhD thesis on the structure of cell membranes in Virginia and Georgia Universities. 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.
Italian Sociologist. His doctoral thesis was on "Scientific Creationism" and "New scientific discoveries about the origin of life and men". At the moment, his activities include raising public awareness about moral corruption in society, the family institution becoming increasingly degraded, and the increasing loneliness of the people. He carries out these activities with a team of young people. He founded the Anti-Evolutionist committee in Italy. He has three books on this subject, the names of which are as follows:
Prof. Dr. Roberts has PhD’s in chemistry from Tulsa University and in the fields of molecular biology and cell biology from Pennsylvania University. Between 1997-2001, Roberts carried out studies on viral pathogens and inoculation at Yale University. Between 2006-2013, she was an Assistant Professor at Virginia University, Department of Microbiology and head of the Microbiology, Immunology and Infectious Diseases Program. Between 2013 and 2015, she continued her studies as a guest researcher at the Rivendell Institute at Yale University. Roberts has published more than 40 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and participated in many national and international scientific conferences all around the world. She was granted the NIH Award of Merit for her studies on infectious diseases. Currently, she carries out studies on subjects such as harmony between science and faith, and the evidence of Creation on the biochemical level.
Paolo Cioni is an Italian psychiatrist with long-term hospital and academic experience. He has written many publications in cooperation with leading Italian editors in the field of psychiatry. His latest work, published in English, is Paranoia: Between Leadership and Failure (CreateSpace, 2015) where he initially examined paranoia at a personal psychiatric level and continued his examination at sociological and political levels.
Carlo Alberto Cossano is a Health Informatics Project Manager, who is also an expert in clinical pathology analysis laboratory and pathological anatomy laboratory information systems. He works in Dedalus Healthcare Systems Group in Italy.
In 2007, Mr.Gardner co-founded International Catholic Media, a global humanitarian, media and communications company, and became the Board Chairman. In 2013, he launched The Picture Christians Project, which aims to educate society about the lives of Christians around the world and to find solutions to their unique conditions. Jeff Gardner is one of the few photographers and media specialists who frequently travel to the Middle East and document the experiences of Christians, refugees and terror victims in countries like Iraq, Syria, Jordan and Egypt by talking to them. Gardner's writings and photographs have been published in numerous national and international media outlets and publications, and he is frequently featured as a Middle East specialist in various media organs and publications such as EWTN, Relevant Radio, National Catholic Register, Aletia, Conservative Review, Newsmax, Fox News and Sean Hannity.
Dr. Oktar Babuna is a medical doctor specialized in Neurosurgery, graduated from Istanbul University Medical School in 1987. Until 1991 he did research on molecular biology of the nervous system at the University of California San Francisco Medical School, Department of Neurosurgery and Neurology, and at the University of California Berkeley Donner Lawrence Laboratories and Health Sciences Center. Until 1996 he specialized in neurosurgery in the New York University Medical School Department of Neurosurgery. He has many publications in major international medical and scientific journals. He has done research since more than 10 years into the Theory of Evolution and Creation. Dr. Babuna has lectured at more than 500 conferences internationally on “The Collapse of Theory of Evolution and the Fact of Creation”.
