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: $3900Goal: $6000

Any reason for having the page blanked?—Hamburguesa con queso con un cara Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 04:02, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

To make it a real page, since the illuminati page is only about the conspiracy theories and not the actual philosophy of Weishaupt. Diacelium (talk) 04:29, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
Then make the page instead of blanking it.—Hamburguesa con queso con un cara Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 04:34, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm making the page, I just needed to blank it to avoid being redirected. Diacelium (talk) 05:02, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

Finally[edit]

When I was about 15 (circa 2006), I hung out (digitally) with a bunch of would-be hackers. One of them was an Aussie, who was obsessed with a version of the Illuminati mythos which happened to place Weißhaubt at the center of it all. In retrospect, he would spout the weirdest stuff about his importance. TL;DR: I'm glad to see this article get made. Weißhaupt is important to cover. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 10:47, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

I'm also happy to have found the courage to make it. Weishaupt is a very interesting person in history, first because of the illuminati and his diabolization. The main problem with Weishaupt is that it's hard to find informations about him (except by reading his books(ugh), which would require to buy them, which would take hours) because of the fucking idiots all around the net with their bullshit about the illuminati being satanic communists.
But I'm happy to have found some factual informations about his philosophy. It's still interresting. Diacelium (talk) 13:56, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
Neat! But never mind his books — remember that we're not a general encyclopedia. All those bullshit illuminati claims directed against him is what we're supposed to be covering. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 14:42, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
I know we are not an encyclopedia, but we have articles about philosophy, and also philosophy of science, both of which Weishaupt falls in. Diacelium (talk) 15:01, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
Dr. James Wardner takes several direct quotes from Weishaupt in his book, Unholy Alliances. The order had many of the same goals as communism, including a one world government, and abolition of private property, the family unit, all religion, patriotism and inheritance. He created the first Illuminati-Masonic lodge in the US in 1778. — Unsigned, by: 66.235.8.205 / talk 11:05, 14 September 2018‎ (UTC)
