There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

Badger's Law states that the content of any website which contains the word "truth" in its name or URL contains anything but that. The law states:
“”Websites with the word "Truth" in the URL have none in the posted content.
In practice, this means that websites with this word in their name and/or URL can be considered webshites. Citing such webshites as a credible source is in turn a violation of Scopie's Law. WorldTruth.TV is a prime example of this.
Note the Badger's Law has exceptions; in particular, it does not apply recursively (for example, "example.com/blog/my-experience-with-foobartruth-dot-org" is probably an acceptable primary source about "foobartruth.org"). It applies less strongly when the URL is in the form of a question ("example.com/blog/is-frank-telling-the-truth-about-his-encounter-with-mr-badger"), as many such cases fall to Betteridge's law.
Exceptions to the rule
More seriously, there are actually some exceptions to the rule.
- The Truth About Guns (except their pro-gun position).
- Exposing the Truth (in spite of their silly name no different from several conspiracy websites). 
- The Elkhart Truth.
- Citizen Truth.
- Truth Initiative (U.S. anti-tobacco advocacy charity) (Truth Initiative)
