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: $5800Goal: $6000

Steve Fuller (born 1959) is an American philosopher of science and proponent of intelligent design. He holds the August Comte Chair in Social Epistemology in the Department of Sociology at the University of Warwick in the UK, and has been central in the development of the field of social epistemology,[1] a branch of the philosophy of science that examines the social dimensions of scientific knowledge. Fuller's research has focused on the organization of scientific institutions and the social processes by which "knowledge" is agreed upon.[2]

Fuller's advocacy for intelligent design has extended to testimony in the Kitzmiller trial, appearances in movies such as Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed and the BBC's The Trouble with Atheism, and authorship of books such as 2007's Science vs. Religion? and 2008's Dissent Over Descent. Fuller's personal beliefs appear carefully indeterminate, as he describes himself as a secular humanist, while also being "very sympathetic to Christian ideas" and undecided on evolution.[3]
