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

The Congregation of Universal Wisdom is a quack religious organization founded by chiropractor Walter P. Schilling. Basically this group's beliefs are a hash of chiropractic philosophy and New Thought beliefs. There are no real chapels so instead members meet in various locations.


The congregation believes in a universal intelligence (Much like New Thought Christianity), and they believe that the only way someone can be healed is through the manipulation of the spine.

Ordination of ministers[edit]

Minsters must submit a dissertation that is examined by five other ministers. If you pass you are ordained as a minister.


There is a section of the website entitled "Sacrilege". This is a list directly from the website of things considered sacrilege:

  • The ingestion of medication or other chemical substances that defy natural law.
  • The injection into the body of medication or other matter of substances that defy natural law.
  • The application of medication, chemicals or other foreign matter or substances unharmonious to the laws of nature.
  • The inhalation of medication, chemicals or other foreign substances in disharmony with the laws of nature.
