In 1998, the Technics & Science Research Foundation initiated a strategy of international and national conferences on the invalidity of the theory of evolution. The reason of this policy was mostly related with some official plans to include Darwinism as a scientific fact in the education system. In order to prevent such a harmful and wrong decision, the TSRF decided to demonstrate with scientific conferences how modern science in fact disproves the evolutionary scenario of origins.
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 second international conference titled “The Collapse of the Theory of Evolution: The Truth of Creation – II” was held in 5 July1998 in Istanbul. This time, six American Creation scientists attended the conference. The same auditorium again had a great audience.
