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 2020.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !
Please test your editing skills, signs, new editing extensions, etc., here before unleashing them on the rest of the wiki.
"Suppose that every memory, written word, and piece of technology on earth was destroyed at one, leaving humanity to start completely from scratch. Everything we have to come to know about science would be eventually be discovered again. Given a few thousand years, people would figure out chemistry, and rediscover all the elements we know about now. People would once again understand biology, including its evolutionary origins. People would eventually see the motions of other galaxies in the sky, and work out the details of the big band. This is the glorious part about science, it can and would be replicated. I can assure you, however, that the story about a talking snake would be gone forever."
