On April 28th, 2018, the Technics & Science Research Foundation (TSRF) held the third annual International Conference on The Origin of Life and The Universe at the Fairmont Quasar Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey.

Focusing on the question of “What is the origin of life?” the TSRF’s international conference drew a line in the shifting sands of the scientific community, declaring boldly that evidence for a God-driven creation exists plainly in such fields as genetics, biology, paleontology, physics, chemistry and astrophysics.

Unique among creation-oriented groups, TRSF in THE ONLY Islamic-based organization, and prides itself on its interfaith collaborations. TSRF frequently hosts events which feature Christian, Jewish and other leading theologians and scientists from around the world.

TSRF has been working for quite a long time to bring to the public’s attention the latest scientific developments offering insights as to the origin of life and the universe, as well as the findings of modern science in an effort to highlight how this knowledge can be used to change our outlook on life.

And in this conference, eight world-famous scientists, all experts in their areas, explained the evidences of God’s existence and why the theory of evolution is wrong.

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 human genome to the uniqueness of the Earth and the Universe, conference goers viewed several exhibits of fossils, many dating back millions of years, and enjoyed the performance by the Istanbul Dance Factory.

The third conference provided answers from genetics, biology, paleontology, physics, chemistry and astrophysics to the question ‘How did life begin?’ with the valuable input of scientific figures who are experts in their fields and who have published many academic studies in respectable peer-reviewed journals.

In addition to discussing the latest scientific discoveries of the 21st Century, the speakers provided their insights as to how science can be utilized to build a peaceful world where people can live together harmoniously.

The speakers were as follows:

Dr. Fazale R. Rana’s talk was entitled ‘The Human Genome: Encoded by Design.’

Dr. Kenneth Keathley’s talk was on ‘The Seven Days of Genesis One: An Old-Earth Interpretation’

Dr. Hans Köchler, talked about ‘Monotheism and the Meaning of Coexistence : A Philosophical Perspective.’

Dr. David Snoke’s presentation was on ‘How biologists are already widely using intelligent design principles ...and why their explanations for this are problematic?’


Dr. Bijan Nemati’s presentation titled ‘The Pale Blue Dot Revisited: Appreciating Our Uncommon Place in the Universe.’

Dr. Fabrizio Fratus’ talk was on ‘Darwin’s theory called EVOLUTION OF SPECIES is promoted through lies in the textbooks of Italian schools.’
