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!

Donations so far: $5800Goal: $6000

Bovidae is the family of mammals that includes goats.


See the main article on this topic: Goat

What a mighty specimen is the goat! What strength! What endurance! What capriciousness![1] In action how like an Angel! In apprehension how like a God! The beauty of the world! The paragon of animals![2] How noble in thine aspect, so excellent a beast! How noble to the cause of science, that the stench of bullshit may never batter thine brow! How noble to the cause of consumption, that your meat may always grace our stomachs! To compare thee to your fellow bovidae, would be to compare Hyperion to a satyr![3]

In short, the other 131 species in Bovidae can go chew their cud.

Not Goats[edit]

Other bovids are available, apparently, like sheep and NotGoats. But why waste time on them?
