RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Dr.Barrie Microwave Trower is a pseudoscientist who allegedly trained in the Government Microwave Warfare Establishment in the 1960s and worked with the underwater bomb disposal unit.[1] So far, he hasn't given any concrete evidence to support his apparent training and work.


He claims that WiFi is the devil uses "the same frequencies and powers as microwave stealth warfare weapons",[2] which doesn't sound so scary if you know the properties of microwaves. In addition, he claims to be some sort of scientific prophet because he thinks that he predicted police officers and civilians becoming ill because of TETRA's (Terrestrial Trunked Radio's) microwaves.[3] According to his revelations, if microwaves were honestly that harmful we would, by now, have many cases of people becoming seriously ill from the dreaded fiend in disguise the sheeple know as Wi-Fi… Remember to buy a packet of tinfoil hats for the entire family, the man in the straitjacket said so!

What does Barrie like to speak about?[edit]

MICROWAVES! Microwaves, microwaves and once again microwaves! Get your tinfoil hats at the ready, there may be some microwaves near you.
