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.

Bible thumper (or Bible basher in some parts) is a description used in respect of particularly vocal Christians who constantly quote the Bible when discussing non-Biblical topics (often about science, but also about homophobia, porn, etc.). The term comes from old-timey circuit preachers who would emphatically thump a bible held aloft while making their points.


In the bible thumper’s opinion all moral issues are determined by what the bible says, chapter and verse, as the bible thumper quotes.

  1. Those who refuse to follow the precepts of the bible thumper are Hell-bent sinners.
  2. Those who disagree with how the bible thumper interprets the aforementioned book are heretical Hell-bent sinners.
