A conference titled “The Collapse of the Theory of Evolution and the Fact of Creation” was held at the American University of Dubai on 5 February, 2009. Participants in the conference, held at the invitation of the university’s Islamic Society, were given copies of Harun Yahya’s “Miracle of the Qur’an” documentary DVD. The audience, half of whom were made up of teachers, hoped that such activities would take place on a frequent basis in the future.
For two days before the conference, specimens of living fossils alongside books and documentaries by Harun Yahya were put on display. Biology instructors said they would use the Atlas of Creation in the school library, as a source in classes.
