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!

Charles Chilton Moore (1837—1906) was an American atheist who founded one of the first newspapers promoting atheism in the country, The Blue Glass Blade which he was only able to publish on a sporadic basis due to legal issues. Moore, in an age of religious idiocy spent time in prison for his opposition to religion in 1899, on the pretext of promoting "free love". Moore's grandfather was Barton W. Stone, a prominent figure in the history of Christianity in the United States. To this day, Moore is often credited as being one of the fathers of American atheists as well as one of the most influential. [1]

He was dubbed Kentucky's Most Hated man for pointing out the hypocrisy and idiocy of religion and the influence it has on society and political issues. Moore also had a large thick beard, which kicked God's beard's ass. [2]
