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 !
George C. Deutsch
| The divine comedy|
George C. Deutsch is a former NASA press officer, appointed to the position by George W. Bush. Apparently he caused quite a stir there and became lovable after he ordered a NASA website designer to add the word "theory" after every occurrence of the phrase big bang:
“”In his memo to the website designer, Mr. Deutsch wrote that the big bang is "not proven fact; it is opinion... It is not NASA's place, nor should it be to make a declaration such as this about the existence of the universe that discounts intelligent design by a creator… This is more than a science issue, it is a religious issue."
