RationalWiki's 2019 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 2019.

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: $4200Goal: $6000

Who's asking?

Luis Alfonso Gámez[1] is a Spanish journalist and hyperactive skeptic. He covers the whole gamut of skeptical ideas including conspiracy theories, homoeopathy and the existence of God.


He founded the Spanish skeptical organisation circuloesceptico (Skeptics circle)[2] and the Basque version of Skeptics in the Pub called enigmas y birras (puzzles and beers).[3]

Current activity[edit]

He has a regularly updated blog, magonia, [4] associated with a somewhat intermittent podcast which can more properly be regarded as record of his radio frequent radio interviews. [5]

In 2011 he produced a series of documentaries on common objects of modern scepticism with the Basque broadcaster EITB. The pilot programme asked, "Did we go to the moon?",[6] and the follow-up programme was about alternative medicine and asked, "Does it work for you?"


He has written La Cara Oculta del Misterio (the hidden face of the mystery) a skeptical book about the paranormal. [7] He also collaborated on the book "Skeptical Odysseys: Personal Accounts by the World's Leading Paranormal Investigations" [8] which included essays by many well-known British and American skeptics and scientists.
