RationalWiki's 2020 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 2021.

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: $2120Goal: $3500

Clinically unproven

Kate Tieje is a blogger who writes under the moniker Modern Alternative Mama. The irony of her nom de plume is that she seems to eschew nearly everything modern. If it weren't for the fact that she owns a computer, she would be nearly indistinguishable from an early 19th century American pioneer. She has a seemingly endless supply of folk remedies which are about as modern as a tribal witch doctor. In addition to alternative medicine, she also promotes vaccine hysteria,[1] homeschooling,[2] Christian fundamentalism, and creationism.[3]

Of particular note is her record of child abuse and neglect, such as leaving her infant's broken arm untreated for a week and taking him to a chiropractor instead of a real doctor.[4]
