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

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]
  • Taxonomy of Logical Fallacies[5] (and how to use it)[6]
  • Glossary of philosophical and logical terms[7]
  • What is a logical fallacy?[8]
