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: $1680Goal: $3500

Aliens did it...
... and ran away

Maximillien de Lafayette is an alleged "UFO researcher" and ancient astronauts advocate who has appeared on UFO Hunters and Ancient Aliens. According to a woman who claims to be his former girlfriend, he was actually a scam artist who re-published text and photos gathered from around the Internet as books.[citation needed]

Prior to striking Ancient Aliens gold, Lafayette had published weighty tomes with such scholarly titles as Horrible People, Stars, Times, and Scandals and Hollywood Earth Shattering Scandals. The Infamous, Villains, Nymphomaniacs and Shady Characters in Motion Pictures. He even managed to combine ancient astronauts and self help in what must have been a blockbuster title: THE BOOK OF RAMADOSH. 7,000 Year Old Anunnaki Ulema Techniques To Live Longer, Happier, Healthier, Wealthier (because what our alien overlords really wants is for you to give Lafayette all your money).[1]

For the revolutionary see here.
