17 November, 2020.7:30 pm-9:00 pm


Tuesday Talks

Dark Messiah

Tuesday 17th November 2020. 7.30pm until 9.00pm. £5 online via ZOOM.


Did magic legitimise religion or did religion legitimise magic? In this presentation, which is based on his book of the same name, Brian Allan asks if there is any difference between the miracles attributed to saints and conventional ‘holy men’ and those manifested by healers, psychics, mediums and magicians. He also poses the controversial question, was Jesus really the Son of God or a highly skilled master magician. See also how there is no difference between prayers and spells, bibles and grimoires, except in the context of how they are used. This talk could change the way you see the world.

How do I access the event?

Our online programme is run via ZOOM. Please download ZOOM and create an account here. To use ZOOM, please follow this guide.
