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.

John Thomas Sladek
| This might be|
|But we're not sure|
John Thomas Sladek (December 15, 1937 – March 10, 2000) was an American science fiction author, known for his satirical and surreal novels. He was also a prominent materialist and skeptic who devoted time to debunking pseudoscience, occult beliefs and conspiracy theories.
His book The New Apocrypha (1974) is an excellent demolition of the pseudoscience being peddled at the time. It's probably on eBay and worth a punt.
