RationalWiki's 2018 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 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 PayPal Logo.png!

An infidel is someone who is not Fidel Castro doesn't believe what you believe. The word is almost exclusively used in a religious context and can be summed up more succinctly as "someone who doesn't buy your bullshit". As a result, it's historically been taken in a negative context.

An infidel differs from a heretic in that the infidel's views aren't even close to right while the heretic is generally a believer who's gone a bit astray; however, the punishment for both is generally the same.
