RationalWiki's 2020 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 2021.

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: $3500Goal: $3500

A paradox is

  • A statement or argument which leads to a contradiction in its own foundation or premise, such as "The next sentence is false. The previous sentence is true."
  • A statement that, while true, defies common knowledge by leaving out important details. For example "Alex was born February 29th, 1984. He has had 8 birthdays."
  • Sometimes used to refer to a linguistic fallacy.
