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: $3680Goal: $6000

Roy Masters (born Reuben Obermeister in 1928) is a strange cookie indeed. He has a weekly talk radio show (and a book) called Finding God in Physics, and does a daily radio show called "Advice Line". His views are a weird hybrid of fundamentalist Christianity and the New Age movement, though he refutes the New Age claim and offers further explanation of his views in a statement of belief.[1]

Masters used to be a full-time hypnotist, but apparently discovered that most people are already hypnotized, and need to be freed. He also thinks that after a few hand-waving references to quantum physics and gravity, he has proven the existence of his God. Add in abstinence-only sex education, traditional gender roles, vicious misogyny, past lives, and any right-wing conspiracy theory he has ever run into (and probably some that he made up), and you've got his views in a nutshell. He has his own version of mumbletypeg physics. He never met a right-wing conspiracy theory he didn't like. His Wikipedia page is heavily whitewashed[2] and seems to be defended by true believers.[3]

He hates Obama so much that when a caller calls the President a "communist", he runs with it. Unsurprisingly, he is also an enthusiastic birther.
