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 !

Jason Colavito is a freelance writer who enjoys writing (about) horror fiction as much as dissecting the claims of various ancient astronauts proponents. If you've watched the original 2009 Ancient Aliens on the History Channel, you may have caught a glimpse of his article Charioteer of the Gods around the 8:40 mark, which was presented as an example of the reactions to von Däniken and his buddies. (The article itself traces the origin of the "ancient contact with aliens" idea back to H.P. Lovecraft. It was published in the Skeptic magazine in 2004 (volume 10, number 4) and its full text is available online at Skeptic.com and Jason Colavito.com)
