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!

Geoffrey Simmons (born 1943) is a medical doctor and proponent of intelligent design.


Simmons is a fellow at the Center for Science and Culture, part of the Discovery Institute. He is a board certified physician in internal medicine and the author of several books.[1]


Simmons rejects evolution as he believes (similar to young earth creationists) there are billions of gaps in the fossil record and too many missing links for evolution to be true. He writes that the "only the existence of an all–powerful Designer can explain everything." He sometimes pretends to be a secular intelligent design advocate though his books are published by a Christian group and he has performed lectures as Christian Churches.[2][3] He debated evolutionary biologist PZ Myers in 2008.[4]
