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.

Jack Cuozzo (1937–2017) was a dentist and Young Earth Creationist who believed that Neanderthals are ordinary humans who lived for hundreds of years, causing their skulls to continue to grow. His career as a dentist was actually somewhat ironic, as he should have know that age can be judged in fossilized individuals based on an examination of several types of tooth development, and that such research has confirmed that Neanderthals did not live for hundreds of years.
