About the Conference

The International Conference on the Origin of Life and the Universe is a social responsibility project started under the auspices of Technical Science Research Foundation (TBAV).

TBAV 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.

The conference will provide 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 will provide their insights as to how science can be utilized to build a peaceful world where people can live together harmoniously.

Guest speaker Fazale R. Rana, PhD will give two presentations entitled ‘Why I Believe God Exists: A Biochemist Makes a Case for the Creator’ and ‘Human Origins: Common Design or Common Descent’.

Anjeanette “AJ” Roberts, PhD, in her speech ‘Un-Equivocating Evolution’, will speak of her experiences, scientific findings and explain the origins of life with the latest scientific evidence.

Dr. Jeff Zweerink, with his presentation entitled ‘The Origin and the Design of the Universe’, will share the latest findings in astrophysics and explain what they mean for the origins of the universe.

Our conference will also host a ‘fossil exhibition’ where the audience can see clear paleontological evidence that living things haven’t gone through any change over hundreds of millions of years.

We would be delighted to have your contribution to this conference -the biggest scientific event of the year- where academicians, domestic and international NGO’s and opinion leaders will exchange their ideas and build new concepts.

We look forward to seeing you at our international conference to be held at the Conrad Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel, on August 24, 2016.
