about the Author

My Story

Hi! I am Gabriel Wilensky, founder of 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 Fuel for Thought.

I am also the author of the books Six Million Crucifixions: How Christian Teachings About Jews Paved the Road to the Holocaust and Two Dozen Thoughts, both of which show a particularly pernicious consequence of abandoning reason and embracing superstition. 

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.

Fuel for Thought is erudite and encyclopedic, pointed and provocative. Its aims are well worth consideration. Wilensky’s emphasis on education and enlightenment has much to commend it.
