Australian Conference 2005
Several conferences were held in Sydney and Melbourne during the final days of 2004. The presentations made by Harun Yahya's representatives on "The Existence of God: Scientific and Spiritual Proofs of God's Existence," held between 26 December 2004 - 2 January 2005, attracted considerable public interest.
The conference held at the Sydney Opera House on 26 December 2004, attended by 1,500 people, began under the direction of the chairman of the Christian Churches Union. Nurettin Okumus, the muezzin of Ankara's Kocatepe Mosque, recited Qur'anic verses. A 3-D animated film on "The Complexity of the Cell" was then shown. Following the screening, an address was given on "The Scientific and Spiritual Proofs of God's Existence." Other speakers at the conference were Tariq Ramadan and Noorudeen Durkee.
Presentations on "The Scientific and Spiritual Proofs of God's Existence" and "Allah Is Known through Reason" were made at Melbourne's Hamer Hall. Officials stated that this was the first time an address on Islam had been given at the hall. Before the conference, an interview introducing Harun Yahya's works was held with ZZZ Turkish Radio.
Two further presentations were given within the scope of the Australian conferences, one at the Sydney Community Hall and the other at the Sunnybrook Hotel. Among the presentations given were "Signs of the End Times" and "The Miracles of the Qur'an."
