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

We're all figments of her imagination.

Academy Award winning actress, Shirley MacLaine became a New Age woo-meistress in the 1980s. Her books Out On a Limb (1983) and Dancing in the Light (1986) helped popularize New Age beliefs, from reincarnation to channelling. Some of her subsequent acting roles have been based on her status as a New Age guru.

Quotes[edit]

"I think Cher was right. You are an asshole!" - Shirley MacLaine to David Letterman, after Letterman poked a little too much fun at her New Aginess.
