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

The woo is out there

Aliens did it...
... and ran away
Was it an UFO in the terms of a flying saucer? Or what is an UFO in the sense of it was just something in the sky that wasn't identified?
—Nick Redfern, a ufologist who apparently never bothered to find out what the UFO acronym stands for[1]

Nicholas "Nick" Redfern (1964–) is an ufologist, cryptozoologist, and conspiracy theorist. He also believes the judgement day is nigh. The crank magnetism is strong in this one.

Some of his books:

  • Bloodline of the Gods, where he claims that humans are the product of ancient aliens, and that humans are "periodically modified and refined as a species" and that human civilization is "one big lab experiment".[2] Sounds slightly familiar, doesn't it?
  • Secret History: Conspiracies from Ancient Aliens to the New World Order, we'll let the title speak for itself.
  • FINAL EVENTS and the Secret Government Group on Demonic UFOs and the Afterlife, from the blurb: "our purported alien visitors are, in reality, deceptive demons and fallen angels. They are the minions of Satan, who are reaping and enslaving our very souls, and paving the way for Armageddon and Judgment Day".[3] Also claims Aleister Crowley is connected to UFO's (which is almost believable).
  • Man Monkey: In Search of the British Bigfoot, Bigfoot … again … PRATT.
