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 2020.

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: $1050Goal: $3000

A hermit is usually a religious person who decides to live a solitary life so they can contemplate their god without extraneous distraction.

Some hermits in earlier periods of the Christian church were immured into churches — i.e. were in rooms which were bricked up. (Elizabeth BáthoryWikipedia's W.svg was not a hermit, although in the same state.)

Not to be confused with hermit crabs, though some hermits can be quite crabby.
