RationalWiki's 2019 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 2019.

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: $4200Goal: $6000

One day they came and they took the Gas Guzzlers
And I said nothing because I used mass transit
Then one day they converted the McMansions to multi-family dwellings
And I said nothing because I lived in a soviet style condo near a coffee shop
One day they came and they took the Large Lawns
And I said nothing because I have no lawn
One day they burned the right wing radio
And I said nothing because I listened to Air America
Then one day they came and they took my ipod
And they burned the coffee shop I liked to frequent
And they requisitioned my $1200 bicycle for the great leap forward
And banned my spandex pajamas worn while cycling
And rationed electricity for my McIntosh
Now I believe in God and property
