About Gabriel Wilensky

about the Author

Hi! I am Gabriel Wilensky, and I am the author of Six Million Crucifixions: How Christian Teachings About Jews Paved the Road to the Holocaust, a book that shows a particularly pernicious consequence of abandoning reason and embracing superstition.

Most recently I launched Thought Academy, a website dedicated to teaching people how to think critically and rationally. Using reason for everything we do in life is critical to make the world a better place. This subject is one of the major topics of my forthcoming book Fuel for Thought 

Additionally, I worked for many years in the software industry where I was responsible for many successful software products, several of which are being used by many millions of people. Quite a few of these products won many awards and were covered by the media worldwide. Among them are such blockbuster hits as Morph, the Aladdin Activity Center, the Lion King Activity Center, GoPro Studio and the GoPro App.

Although Americans and Europeans may be tempted to forget historical injustices in the name of today’s tolerance and diversity, Wilensky’s writing is a lucid, concise reminder of why it is important to remember how deadly religious bigotry can be.
