Why have scientific evidences become important in this age? Why is it important that the level of evidences be high while presenting the facts related to the creation?

Dear Brother / Sister,
8.1-NEUROTHEOLOGY, FROM NEUROLOGY TO THEOLOGY*
"The light of the conscience is the religious sciences. The light of the mind is the exact sciences. The truth becomes manifest with their harmony. Through those two wings, students become successful. When they are separated, bigotry occurs in the former; cheating and doubt occur in the latter." (Badiuzzaman)
In the current age of positivism, religious soundness has been replaced by scientific soundness. A person prefers scientific knowledge when there is a contradiction or suspicion of belief because he started to be taught scientific soundness after the industrial revolution. This exists in the laws of psychology; when a thought comes to your mind and when you add emotions to that thought, that thought can become faith. If that thought continues after being converted to faith, it becomes a habit after a while. If it still continues, it becomes a personality. This happens over a period of 6 months. For this reason, emotion must be added to knowledge for that knowledge to be converted to faith. Adding emotions occurs only when the person is convinced. When the person hesitates, he no longer accepts it automatically; he opens two files in his brain. He opens a file of doubtful information and in such cases he can turn this doubtful information into action. That is why the faith in this age has to be investigative faith.

It is quite difficult for us to tell young people about realities by convincing them. Everyone needs to do it in their own branch. Creation is very important in this respect. Among theses of coincidence are coincidental existence and design-based existence. The thesis of design-based existence is more plausible than the thesis of coincidental existence.
We are trying to gather scientific evidence of this plausible way in this Congress of Creation. As we increase the level of evidence, the question marks in people’s minds will fade away. The emergence of these facts about creation is very important. It is important because not only Turkey but also humanity needs it. When you look at all developed countries, you will definitely see that all of them are trying to find the truth. The famous physicist Stephen Hawking died a few months ago and everyone regards him as an atheist. Hawking had the following thesis: They will come from space, invade the world and change the world. He had the following expectation as a physicist: “There is a superior community that uses high computer technology; this community is searching us and they come from the future”. He could not say, ”God,“ or “There is a creator” but he said, “There is, there must be, a superior community that uses high computer technology.” For this reason, he meant a being that existed. That is, there is a power that exists. He moves in the direction of reason. We certainly need to be interested in the scientific flow in this direction. The Creation Congress should continue in this respect. This was the second step. As Üsküdar University, we are always ready for the third step. It is our greatest goal to continue these congresses.
