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 2019.

Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach (1804-1872) was a German philosopher and a member of the philosophical school of thought known as the Young Hegelians, followers of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. However, he would later go on to turn against Hegel's philosophy. Feuerbach was a proponent of atheism and materialism. His best known work is The Essence of Christianity, which argued that god was simply the projection of the human mind. The works of Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels were heavily influenced by Feuerbach.
