RationalWiki's 2019 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 who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

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

Bilocation is a term used to describe the alleged ability of an individual to be present in two different places at the same time.

Some fraudsters even boldly claim that they can be present in more than two places at a given time. The term multilocation is used to describe this alleged feat of endurance. To date, no evidence has been found to support the existence of bilocation or multilocation, except, of course, a great wad of useless anecdotes.

Bilocation is a power that is commonly associated with many would-be saints and is an easily-enough accomplished miracle requiring only a body double or a few credible witnesses to fake.

In reality[edit]

Bilocation is possible in quantum mechanics but this pertains primarily to entangled atoms or subatomic particles.[1]
