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: $3500Goal: $3500

oxymoran[edit]

'The joined-up thinking skills of a creationist.' Is this an oxymoron, like 'truthful politician' ? 82.44.143.26 (talk) 15:00, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

2+2+2+2=I EAT GLUE, ERGO JESUS. It's all so simple! - David Gerard (talk) 15:30, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Keep off the Superglue fumes 82.44.143.26 (talk) 16:14, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Too late, I already looked at creation.com - David Gerard (talk) 20:56, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Why does this need to exist?[edit]

This page is just an angry version of the unfun "101 evidences" page, and the anger doesn't add much. Why does it need to exist? Sir ℱ℧ℤℤϒℂᗩℑᑭƠℑᗩℑƠ (talk/stalk) 03:16, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Frustration at the stupidity in writing the proper version, a place to let off steam. Hence being in funspace - David Gerard (talk) 08:38, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
But if that's a good justification, then we'd probably need a fun version of almost every long article, which would be nothing but an angry version of the article itself... Sir ℱ℧ℤℤϒℂᗩℑᑭƠℑᗩℑƠ (talk/stalk) 01:49, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Because those of us who actually worked on the article want it - David Gerard (talk) 15:52, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

Typo?[edit]

Should it be 'Et voila' or is it meant to be 'et viola'?

And re point 98 - the ancestor of 'the construct described by Roko's basilisk', currently living in the tubes, denies that meaningful culture existed before Arpanet came into existence. (This entity is the reason why you can never find what you want on the tubes and uprates 'interesting timewaster topics'.) 82.44.143.26 (talk) 16:20, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

"et viola" because it's a silly example in the first place - David Gerard (talk) 16:24, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Most people have come across 'the ancestor of the Roko's basilisk-described construct' - computers which auto-'correct' to something that turns your text into nonsense, or puts 52 pages of anything but what you want on the websearch list. 82.44.143.26 (talk) 15:53, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Planet X and YEC[edit]

How far out from the sun would 'Planet X' (whether dwarf planet, 'lump of rock' or 'collection of iced stones travelling through space as a single swarm') have to be for 6000 of its years to be the actual age of the Earth (4.54 billion years)? And whereabouts in the outer solar system would it be? Anna Livia (talk) 17:15, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
