Speakers

Dr. Fazale Rana

Biochemist

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.


Fabrizio Fratus

Sociologist

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:

  • God or Darwin?
  • Myth or Real? The Lie of Evolution
  • Science and Faith

Dr. Anjeanette "AJ" Roberts, PHD.

Molecular Biologist

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.
