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!

Donations so far: $3630Goal: $5000

Bible woo

Icon bible.svg
Woo derived from the Bible. Bible woo uses things mentioned in the Bible for purposes other than religion and history, often outside of their original context. Examples include alternative medicine, fad diets, pseudoarcheology, deriving incantations and spells from Bible verses, using the Bible as a guide to locating oil reserves, and searching for hidden ciphers and codes in the Bible (as in the popular book The Bible Code). Based on the assumption that the Bible is some kind of magical treasure chest of superior knowledge. Popular among Christians and New Agers alike.
