Businessman, author and philanthropist intent on freeing man from religion, Vitaly Malkin will be joining us in store for a discussion on his new book, Dangerous Illusions, a battle cry in his enduring quest to save man from God.
Malkin asserts that man is doing himself a disservice by focusing on life after death - that belief in religion prohibits man from living a full and complete life now. He believes mankind will only be truly happy if we are able to shake off our dangerous illusions in order to live a life more rooted in the present.
Join Vitaly for a riveting look at the impact and cost of religion on our lives, as he fearlessly refutes our most careless beliefs, encouraging us to be more aware of the dangers religions pose to our society and, even, to change our intellectual practices altogether.
Drinks and canapés will be served from 18:30. This is a free event although please register your interest.
About the book
Dangerous Illusions sets out to explore the irrational demands that religion makes of man and asks the reader to question what benefit these acts offer humans in this life.
Malkin scrutinises topics such as suffering and evil, pleasure and asceticism, sex and celibacy through the lens of the three monotheistic religions: Christianity, Islam and Judaism. He argues for a radical shift in humanity’s thinking about religion; that reason and religion cannot co-exist.
Formerly a businessman and investor, Malkin became interested in philosophy and history of religion while engaged in his philanthropic activities for the Fondation Era and Fondation Espoir, and from his extensive travels around the world. Living now in Europe, Malkin has fully dedicated himself to writing and to continuing his work as a philanthropist.
