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!

Fallacy Files is a collection of fallacies by Gary N. Curtis, Ph.D. in philosophy from Indiana University in Bloomington,[1] who started the collection "about twenty-five years ago".[2] As of 13 November 2015, the website has 86 unique and in-depth pages of fallacies. The site is, unfortunately, not extremely popular,[3] although it is frequently linked to from RationalWiki, Wikipedia, and Reddit.

In addition, the website has several generally useful pages:

  • How to use the Fallacy Files[4]
  • New Taxonomy of Logical Fallacies[5] (and how to use it)[6]
  • Old Taxonomy of Logical Fallacies[7]
  • Glossary of philosophical and logical terms[8]
  • What is a logical fallacy?[9]
