RationalWiki's 2018 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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Rosenblum's First Law of Chocolate (from a book on the craft of chocolate-making)[1] states:

The more someone refuses to talk about what he does, the more he is likely to be involved in a lousy product.[2]

The application of this in fields far removed from confectionery should be self-evident. Obviously, though, there are at least two fields where the opposite is true.
