In the same year, three international conferences were held in Istanbul and Ankara, the Capital of Turkey, on the issue of evolution. Thanks to the firm and sincere support of ICR, outstanding scientists like Drs. Duane Gish, John Morris, Kenneth Cumming, Carl Fliermans, David Menton, Edward Boudreaux and Michael Girouard attended these conferences, in addition to some Turkish scientists. The foundation is aiming to organize new conferences with many other creationists or “intelligent design” scientists from all over the world.

The first international conference titled “The Collapse of the Theory of Evolution: The Truth of Creation” was held in 4 April 1998 in Istanbul. Two of the three speakers were from ICR; Drs. Duane Gish and Kenneth Cumming. The auditorium included about a thousand people, and many more were outside the hall, watching the conference from large screens.
