RationalWiki's 2020 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 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

There used to be a Wikipedia guideline whose shortcut said it all. I suggest taking its advice. This article is perfectly on-mission, just needs a proper write-up. Totnesmartin (talk) 09:04, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Which Gandhi?[edit]

The article accuses these people of having links to people who "killed Gandhi." There've been several Gandhis assassinated. - Smerdis of Tlön (talk) 22:09, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Cosmetic Surgery[edit]

Cosmetic Surgery is generally agreed to have taken place in India (basic nasal, dental, reconstructive, etc.). What's the point in putting that in quotes? (Qwed117, 8:42 PM 5/5/15) — Unsigned, by: 96.225.89.127 / talk / contribs (signed by bot) 00:42, 06 May 2015 (UTC)

Hmm. You are definitely right. Cosmetic surgery first originated in India. The 𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk 13:26, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Sushruta, a guy with a long white beard (which all gurus and babas in India must have) had constructed the methodology behind surgery, and the modern techniques don’t seem to divert too far away from those. But stated that this science was used to cut an elephant’s head to fucking put it on a man’s head and making the abomination fucking work is dumb. So no removing them. https://www.indiatoday.in/education-today/gk-current-affairs/story/sushruta-works-indian-physician-medicine-plastic-surgery-rhinoplasty-nose-job-1559599-2019-07-01

It was recently learned that a Vedic mathematician, Swami Nischalananda Saraswati Puri Shankaracharya of Govardhana Matha, helped the ISRO scientists. He used data from ancient Indian cosmology to clear some doubts of the ISRO scientists. “As per the Bhishma Parva or the Book of Bhishma, the sixth books in the epic Mahabharata, the diameter of the Moon is 11,000 yojana (1 yojana = approx 12.2 km), and its circumference is 33,000 yojana.” the Shankaracharya told DNA India. The scientists wanted to incorporate some of these calculations into the mission.
