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

In addition to the Adding of the two public holidays, can it be mentioned that it was announced on the Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Crimean Tatar Genocide[edit]

Not to be that guy who makes excuses for conspiracy theorists and anti-immigration jack a loons, but I feel like we should mention that the government of Ukraine's decision may have been out of respect for the tens of thousands of people who died in the mass deportation. Otherwise, it sounds like something Pamela Geller could use for their Eurabia conspiracy. — Unsigned, by: 209.128.2.98 / talk

Polio eradicated in Africa[edit]

After a massive immunization campaign, the Africa Regional Certification Commission, a branch of the World Health Organization, declared that wild poliovirus has been eliminated in Nigeria, meaning Africa is effectively free of polio.--SonOfStranger (talk) 12:30, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

move trump interview to clogosphere?[edit]

copied here: "Trump, in a Fox News interview with Laura Ingraham, leans further into conspiracy theories, claiming, without providing any evidence, that Joe Biden is being controlled by 'people that are in the dark shadows'."

should this be moved to the clogosphere? it's interesting in a lunatic-watching sense, but it probably isn't a notable news article in a general context. Autumncheney (talk) 03:32, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

Black Hole Merger[edit]

The statement "...equal to the energy of eight suns" is ambiguous in this context. It should say something like "the mass equivalent of eight suns was converted to gravitational energy". 124.171.73.196 (talk) 02:56, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Is this news worthy?[edit]

Career Criminal Held for Alleged Murder of BLM-Supporting White Teenager, No Known Motive. Why would a 60 year old black man shoot a 19 year old white man 🤔?
