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: $5800Goal: $6000
Information icon.svg The 2018 moderator election has started! We are electing 6 moderators and 2 alternatives to serve in 2019. Nominate users here and read their campaign slogans here!

Francis Collins

Jump to: navigation, search

Francis Collins is an American physician/geneticist who currently serves as the director of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH). He was the head of the US research institute that worked on the Human Genome Project.

Collins is an Evangelical Christian [1] and a theistic evolutionist[2], which exasperates biologists[3] who nevertheless acknowledge his scientific expertise. He is also the founder of the BioLogos Foundation and served as its director until his appointment as director of NIH.
