Our Foundation is named after Kazimierz Lyszczynski (1643–1689) also known as Casimir Liszinski – Polish philosopher. He was tortured and cruelly executed for his atheism. In the treatise De non existentia Dei he asserted that God, being “a creation of a Man”, does not exist and that “Religion was constituted by people without religion” with the aim of oppressing simple people.
