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: $2120Goal: $3500

Palaeos is the name of a website devoted to creating a comprehensive cladogram of life. While substantial progress has been made in that direction, it still is notoriously incomplete (lacking, among other things, a page on fucking elephants) and its method of cladistics is somewhat circumspect, since the staff of Palaeos tends to be, without reason of course, "skeptical" of molecular phylogenetics. All in all, Palaeos is a fine resource if you want to learn about paleontology in depth, but recognize that its phylogenetic trees are somewhat dubious.
