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.

We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

C0nc0rdance is a vlogger with (as of February 2016) over 45,000 subscribers and 6.3 million views. He came to YouTube with the goal of "show[ing] through the use of solid evidence and rational argument what is junk science, and what is real." In so doing, C0nc0rdance made dozens of videos examining:
- Medical evidence of various pseudosciences and quack medicine (such as acupuncture and homeopathy).
- Alternative medicine, such as if medical marijuana is effective.
- AIDS and HIV denialism
- Vaccine hysteria
- Finally, he also examines several myths involving technology and health, such as whether cellphones cause ear cancer.
Due to his high knowledge of health and biology, C0nc0rdance became a strong defender of the theory of evolution against religious dogma and a strong critic against intelligent design. He targeted online creationists (such as VenomFangX and NephilimFree) and even confronted the Discovery Institute (particularly Casey Luskin).
He came under a lot of fire for his (age-restricted) video alleging that marijuana was dangerous, even getting a death threat he called "disturbingly specific."
C0nc0rdance is also very critical of faith-based medicine and prayer. He made several videos providing the data and reports of young children who died because their parents failed or refused to give them proper medical treatment, and rather resorted to prayer, exorcisms, and faith-healing.
C0nc0rdance is also a frequent co-host on the Magic Sandwich Show.
